Package came with 1 mini hdmi to hdmi cable, a usb type c cable, the screen, and a folding cell phone stand.
When I ordered this from Amazon, (it shipped from Hong Kong) I kept my expectations low, as I have not had much prior experience with products made in China for the Chinese market. It took two weeks to get here(even though I paid 15$ for them to ship it faster, of course, they didn't actually ship it till a week after I actually placed the order.) It was well packaged, with all the above previously mentioned in the box. I plugged in the USB type C cable, and the monitor immediately powered on, with it complaining in Chinese that there was no signal. I plugged the mini hdmi cable in, and it immediately found the signal coming from my S4M. I did a quick test in Portal, noticed some tearing, but realized VSync wasn't enabled. Enabling VSync corrected the issue.
The monitor itself is incredibly thin, but it seems thick and durable enough that it wouldn't just easily snap in half. I plan on replacing the "stand" as it only is barely strong enough to support the monitor's weight. The monitor only weighs about a pound, and seems very portable. The housing material appears to be a brushed aluminium, and looks premium enough. The buttons at the top are functional,
In my gaming tests, the monitor seems very responsive and there was no latency issues as far as I could tell. Colors are crisp and clean,
Edit: I have been able to access the menu by playing with the two buttons from the right. I was able to adjust brightness, change the language to english and adjust the backlight brightness.
