Reviewed: Beautiful 4K portable monitor

This second screen for iPad or Mac is surprisingly affordable.

We reviewed the KYY K3-3 Portable Monitor — a 4K second screen that can be used with your MacBook, iPad or even your iPhone.

Aside from the unfortunate product name (which made me think of something else!), we found it to be a very attractive screen, and surprisingly affordable.

Check out our hands-on review.

A message from the Cult of Mac Deals team

A message from Ryse

The window to invest in RYSE is closing.

If you haven’t heard of RYSE yet, you will soon.

The story of the startup that started out pitching on Dragons Den (Canada’s Shark Tank) and receiving two offers is about to become known nationwide, as their product rolls out in +100 Best Buys across the country.

Early investors that believed in their mission have already seen their share price grow over 15X and they are just getting started.

RYSE’s retail distribution deal resembles that which led smart-home giants Ring, Nest and iRobot to their billion dollar exits.

Their patented, mass-market shade automation device is unrivalled in the industry, and is the quickest way for homeowners and businesses to automate their window shades.

Best Buy has made a huge bet on RYSE, and the good news is that you can too. For a limited time you can still invest in their company at $1.25/share.
