The BlitzWolf Portable Display

The BlitzWolf BW-PCM1 is an 11.6″ portable monitor designed for function and performance. The versatile screen has a number of features that other portable monitors, don’t have. This expanded ability seems to usher in a new era of portable monitors.

The Idea Behind the Portable Display

The BW-PCM1 was designed to a greater extent to use a gamer’s model for resolution at Full HD for 1920 x 1080 and auto-refresh at a range of 24 – 60 Hz. It is inexpensive and has a number of positive features and some negatives as well.

Power Access

The screen needs to be plugged into a power source and there is no indication that there will be a battery option. That is not to say never,  just at this time there is no battery available for the unit.

The BW-PCM1 Cons

The display is designed to be lightweight, and thin, but not the most in either instance.  There is a remote control, that is convenient but requires a CR2032 coin-cell battery that is apparently not included with the unit. 

BlitzWolf BW-PCM1 Portable Display Specifications

The BW-PCM1 has 2x mini HDMI 1.4 ports, 1x USB Type-C port, an audio jack, and built-in stereo speakers. There is a button series on the side of the screen for power, volume, settings, and back, which many other portable screens do not have.

Observations

There does seem to be a requirement that both a HDMI and USB must be connected to the mobile device in order to function properly as a second screen.

Gaming Access

The BW-PCM1 can be connected to Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PS4, which is a distinct feature for a portable monitor.

Optional Sizes and Pricing

There are several size options with accompanying price increases and all the monitors are priced as follows

Note you may be able to shave off $6 from the price, or even $18 if you are a new customer, since Banggood offers coupons for Black Friday 2019.

Those prices do not include internatinoal shipping though. For reference, international shipping (for 1kg) with China post adds around $39 (Zone 2) or $47 (to Zone 3) based on a shipping calculator I found on the web.

Well actually they need to be much cheaper than this. USB C carries native displayport already, and there are lots of EDP displays which can be driven with a usb c and a small microcontroller to handle display and alternate modes.

I dont know why they are using hdmi and converter chips with this products, it just creates cost.

Because it’s what people have on their side and people want to connect easily.

Not every owned desktop, laptop, phone, or game console came with a fully featured USB C port. That’s before you start to consider Amazon and Google TV sticks or the vast number of ‘micro’ computers such as the Raspberry Pi 4.
