We're in the second day of Prime Day and the deals are showing no sign of slowing down. Case in point, the Thinlerain 13.3-inch Portable Monitor. This secondary display is currently only $95.95 on Amazon, which is a great price if you're looking for  a kick-ass monitor. 

The Thinlerain 13-inch monitor is powered by Raspberry Pi and has a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The panel can be used as a secondary screen for laptops as well as game consoles including the Xbox, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It's a great purchase for anyone looking a lightweight, plug-and-play monitor that doesn't break the bank.

Whether you're a gamer looking for a spare display or a power multitasker looking for additional screen real estate, the Thinlerain 13-inch monitor is a good choice. For $95, you get a lightweight, portable panel with a 1080p resolution and a 3-millisecond response rate. 

You can never have too many displays, at least in this humble tech journalist's opinion. But they can be a bit pricey, except during Prime Day. Amazon is currently selling the Thinlerain 13-inch monitor for only $95, down from it's $119 original price. 

The Raspberry Pi-powered display has a 1920 x 1080 resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 3ms response rate. That should significantly cut down on any input latency. The IPS panel averages 72% of the NTSC color gamut, which measures color reproduction capability. 

At 1.5 pounds, the 12.9 x 8.1 x 0.5-inch monitor is seriously lightweight and with its bundled stand is easy to set up. And while you can take it on the road with you, it also has mounting ports along the rear in case you want it to function as a more primary device. 

The display has several ports including a microUSB port, two full HDMI ports and jacks for audio and the DC power adapter. Thanks to all that connectivity, the Thinlerain can work with just about any laptop or game console. 

Now that Amazon Prime Day 2020 is in its second day, we expect to see tons of deals on the industry’s best gaming mice and headsets before the event concludes. Be sure to bookmark our Prime Day laptop deals page for this year’s exclusive deals on laptops.
