Elecrow CrowView is a lightweight 14-inch portable monitor designed to be attached to your laptop adding a secondary monitor to it through a clamping structure that works with laptops having a 13-inch to 16.5-inch display.
We’ve seen this type of laptop monitor extension for years, and you’ll find various models on Amazon. But the Elecrow is now offering the CrowView at a significantly lower price than competitors especially if you pledge $114.90 for the super early bird reward on Kickstarter. The regular price ($179) can still be interesting as in this price range you’d usually get an 11-inch or 12-inch display.

The display is said to work with Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux, and Android operating systems, and devices such as laptops and game consoles such as the Nintendo Switch, Sony PS4/PS5, and Microsoft Xbox. Elecrow claims no drivers are needed, so I’d expect it to work with any device with HDMI output or USB-C with DisplayPort Alt. mode.
The company includes USB cables, an HDMI to mini HDMI cable, a user manual as well as a 5V/2A power adapter with the laptop display. Three main modes are possible with the CrowView namely right clamping (left clamping does not seem possible), face-to-face display, and desktop display thanks to an extendable stand. It’s also been designed to take as little space as possible during storage and transportation.

As mentioned earlier, Elecrow has just launched the CrowView on Kickstarter with a goal of raising at least 70,000 HKD, or around $9,000 US. Rewards start at $114.90 US for the super early bird CrowView laptop monitor, but that does not include shipping ranging from about $13 to over $100 for more exotic destinations (Islands). Deliveries are scheduled to start in October shortly after the crowfunding ends and the company receives the funds.
