A few years ago LG introduced a 27 inch portable display-on-a-stand, called the LG StanbyMe, that’s basically a cross between a smart TV, a tablet, and some sort of portable kiosk system, I guess. It’s apparently an okay TV, but the stand really is something of a selling point by making the battery-powered screen work in a variety of situations around the house or office.

Now LG has introduced a new model that’s meant to be usedย anywhere. It’s called the LG StanbyMe Go (27LX5) and it’s basically a 27 inch touchscreen display packed in a briefcase. There’s still a stand that lets you adjust the display’s angle, height, and orientation. But say goodbye to the wheels and hello to the case.

Inside that briefcase you’ll find a 27 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a stand that lets you adjust the height and angle of the screen (or even flip it 90 degrees for use in portrait orientation), and 20-watt, 4-channel speakers. There’s also a compartment for holding a remote control, charging cable, and other accessories.

The system has a built-in battery that should be good for up to 3 hours of use.

LG says you can also leave the screen lying flat inside the case to play games or use other touchscreen apps. The system runs LG’s webOS smart TV software and also supports Apple’s AirPlay and Android screen mirroring. There’s also support for voice controls for things like searching or changing channels.

The StanbyMe Go supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos sound, and the system is MIL-STD-810H tsted for shock, drop, dust, and vibration resistance, among other things.

The case measures 670 x 433 x 119mm (26″ x 17″ x 4.7″) when closed, making it rather large by briefcase standards. maybe it’s more like a small suitcase with a carrying handle. But it’s still a lot easier to transport than most 27 inch screens.

When opened with the display positioned in portrait orientation, the StanbyMe Go is 729mm (28 inches) high from the bottom of the case to the top of the screen.

  1. I read on another site that it is going to be 1.17 million won (~$885) and will launch July 7th.

    It’s actually a really cool concept, especially if you live in Asia, but the cost is at the extreme end. $600 would have been a much more enticing entry point. You can get an ASUS ZenScreen 24โ€ for $350. $250 extra for 3 inches, a case and a battery would have been doable.

  2. It is like a portable desktop with 3 hour battery life, but without desktop.
    I am crying ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. I love how the photos show models using the display in bright sunlight. Couldn’t be more fake. That aside, I could really use something like this. I currently use a couple of 17 inch portable displays, but they’re no where near this convenient.

    1. Yeah, I have a couple of Eyoyo 13″ displays that are exercise-review monitors for my videography students. I’ve tried a couple different 15.6″ 1080P portable laptop monitors, but they look really soft in comparison to the bulkier Eyoyo displays.

      Depending on their price, these LG displays might be just what I’ve been looking for.

  4. When you’ve got something that bulky, why limit yourself with software like that? You could easily cram an x86 laptop’s worth of components into the thing. In fact, how are they only managing to get only 3 hours of battery life out of this? That can easily house and enough battery to last a laptop a week.

    1. Actually it’s kind of obvious why it’s so limited. They wanted it to be cheap and everyone buying it probably had a computer already they could hook up to it even if that’s less elegant but so is hauling around a keyboard.
      I still think there’s a lot of unrealized potential here.

      1. “probably had a computer already they could hook up”
        that would be highly inconvenient, cause you need another case like that for powering the computer; they intended this outside where there is no electricity

        1. They could at solve that problem at least by stuffing more batteries in it.
          But they didn’t.
