Short of buying a PlayStation Vita and doing some Remote Play magic, playing your PlayStation 4 on the go can be a tricky and cumbersome experience. But it doesn’t have to be. That’s thanks to the advent of portable monitors. While it won’t be portable in a handheld sense, you can make it far more comfortable to not only pack up and travel with your PS4 but also play it anywhere you can find a power outlet. The portable monitors we’ll be taking a look at are all capable of delivering very competent gaming experiences for your PS4. We’ve highlighted monitors based on some factors, including portability, ease of use, and resolution.
With an 11.6-inch IPS panel, a resolution that supports up to 1080p, and a 14ms response time, this display will show your PS4 games in crisp detail, and you won’t be hitting the "Game Over" screen due to delayed input.
Made for Gaming
If you need to save a few bucks, GAEMS (nope, not a typo) is what you should be looking at. This 15.5-inch 1080p monitor lives up to its namesake with an edgy design that’ll look great sitting on top of your PS4.
In many respects, the GeChic 1102H is quite similar to the 1101P with its 11.6-inch 1080p display, though its claim to fame is an onboard 6,900mAh battery rated for up to 4.5 hours. This means you only need one power outlet to enjoy your games on the go.
Built for Gaming
HORI Universal HD Gaming Monitor
HORI’s 15.5-inch 1080p monitor was built with gaming in mind. It’s slim and has a built-in protective shell that doubles as a kickstand. You also have 2 HDMI ports to swap between consoles with ease.
At the end of the day, any portable monitor with an HDMI port will work for your PS4, but the options we highlighted today are advantaged in all the right areas. They’re sizable and sharp in resolution because no one wants to feel like they’re playing on a viewfinder. They all use IPS panels, so you’ll get bright, accurate colors at a range of different viewing angles. Those panels are also 60Hz, so they can show all your PS4 games at 60 frames per second. Last but not least, relatively fast response times means you won’t be lagging behind the competition when playing online. If we had to choose just one, our pick is the GeChic 1101P for overall value and gaming-centric positives.
