Lenovo ThinkVision M14d: Review, Specs, Features, and Price – Lenovo is no stranger to portable monitors, such as the ThinkVision M14t monitor, where you will be impressed by its lightweight design, excellent colors, and touch capabilities (with stylus support). Now Lenovo continues its mission to provide the backup monitors professionals need on the go.
Whether you need a second display in your home or want a peripheral panel when you’re out of town, the Lenovo ThinkVision M14d Mobile Monitor will suit you. It’s a 14-inch display that connects via USB-C, which means it’s made to be the ideal laptop companion.
Lenovo ThinkVision M14d Review
The new ThinkVision M14d 2022 follows the ThinkVision M14t (touchscreen) 2020 and ThinkVision M14 2019. However, the big difference here is that the M14d now has a 16:10 aspect instead of 16:9 like the other two siblings.
Lenovo made this change because all modern ThinkPads are now 16:10 in size, and these portable screens are now PC-like for a better experience. The ThinkVision M14d also has a higher resolution, not just full HD.

ThinkVision M14d Features
The ThinkVision M14d comes with a 14-inch 2K (2240 x 1400 pixels) anti-glare panel and an IPS WLED panel. This screen has a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a response time of 6 ms. It also covers a 100% sRGB color gamut, has a maximum brightness of 300 nits, and offers a 1500:1 contrast ratio.
The ThinkVision M14d comes with a “natural low blue light” feature, which is supposed to cut out harmful blue light emissions, thereby reducing eye strain. The monitor supports Windows 11 and Windows 10.
Weighing only 600 grams makes it relatively easy to carry next to a laptop. Users can also attach it via the two included 100mm screw holes.
Due to its compact size, the ThinkVision M14d external monitor has no ports other than two USB Type-C ports which can double as DP1.4 ports. However, that USB-C port can supply up to 65 watts of power to connected devices. This monitor requires an external power source to power it on as it does not have a built-in battery.
Lenovo ThinkVision M14d: Price and Availability
According to Lenovo, the Lenovo ThinkVision M14d will be available starting this July directly from its website or various retail partners. The Lenovo ThinkVision M14d mobile monitor will be available for $299. It will go on sale starting July in the US. Lenovo has not revealed any plans to launch it in other countries.
The world of USB Type-C promises a lot, and one of its biggest promises is that there are fewer cables to manage. Well, here’s one way to fulfill that potential, the Lenovo ThinkVision M14d monitor only requires one Type-C cable to function, making it the second monitor of a dream phone.
This monitor aims to be a truly mobile external display. It’s incredibly light at just 1.3 pounds, and with a 14″ IPS panel, it’s easy enough to slip into a backpack. That would make it a handy second monitor if you like to move from room to room while working from home.
Unlike the ThinkVision M14t, the new Lenovo ThinkVision M14d does not support touch. However, these shortcomings make the ThinkVision M14d priced at only $299 compared to the ThinkVision M14t at $449. That’s still a notable improvement over the $269 asking price of the standard (non-touch) ThinkVision M14, but you get a higher-resolution 2.2k panel for that extra $30.
