Opening the box we get our first glimpse of the MiMo UM710. Its very well protected by 2 layers of moulded plastic, one clear so you can see it, so should reach you in perfect condition.
Removing the first layer we get down to the accessories again reasonably well protected but the silver knob pictured was rattling about. Before moving onto the display lets take a closer look at the other items.
Removing the stand from the box we can see it has some nice rubberised feet so it will not damage whatever surface it is stood upon and shouldn’t slide about. It unfolds by rotating the centrepiece around on an axle.
It is quite easy to do but not so easy as to flop around, it will stay put at whatever angle it is set to. It is finished in a nice high gloss black paint so won’t look out of place anywhere. You can just about make out in the pictures that the upright is keyed so you will be able to lock the screen in portrait or landscape mode easily.
Moving onto the manual, as you can see from the front cover it actually covers the complete range of MiMo monitors.
A quick flick through tells me it a comprehensive manual covering everything from connecting the MiMo up to installing the drivers and setting up the extended desktop.
Next out of the box is the USB cable, this is a mini USB connection (monitor end) to 2x normal USB connections (to connect to your pc). It has dual USB connections just in case the monitor requires more power than a single USB outlet on your pc can provide.
Finally before moving onto the display is the knob for attaching the screen to the stand, this is simply a bolt moulded into a nice shiny plastic housing with Nanovision moulded into it. Simple but should be perfect for the job.
Ok onto the screen itself.
