Ultra-wide 29in display, good screen brightness and colour consistency
Brightness consistency was very good, with the bottom right side corner being the only area of much difference, the worst part being 6.2% dimmer at 100% Brightness and at 50% Brightness there was only one area at 3.5% dimmer. Colour uniformity was good, if not great, with the bottom left and middle areas showing variation up to 4.5 Delta- E, the bottom right being 3.0 and everywhere else at under 2.5 at 100% Brightness.
Must use PC input for dual source, Doesn't scale/letterbox
The biggest "problem" if you want to call it that with the AOC Q2963PM is the price. For $500, you can get two smaller displays and put them side by side. Sure, it isn't one, ultra-wide display, but it will probably cost you less than $500. For example, if you just use the 16:9 with a 1080p input, you end up with an image that is 23.75" diagonal. Right now, AOC's own 24" e2460Sd will run you less than $150 on Amazon (the MSRP is $190).
Looks good, feels okay
was really skeptical when I first saw this deal. A stylish, cheap, and IPS monitor. After a few decent reviews I decided to order and give AOC a try.
When I first opened up the box, everything looked amazing and gorgeous. Once I started to put it together, I began to have my doubts. I assembled everything together, however my monitor was slightly tilted. When I checked the stand, I noticed that the monitor was not completely locked into place.
Wide viewing angles, energy efficient.
The AOC e2351F is an attractive 23-inch monitor with an affordable price tag. Input connections are limited on this barebones monitor and the touch-sensitive buttons are annoying, but you get a sharp picture with relatively good off angle viewing performance, and it doesn't use much power.
A large screen powered entirely by USB, the results are impressive.
Powering a 22in Full HD monitor entirely over USB is an impressive technical achievement, but it isn't very practical. The E2251FWU weighs and costs just as much as more impressive IPS desktop monitors, but its TN panel and low response time means its performance cannot compete.
No light leaks and consistent
If you need an ultra-lightweight LCD display to lug around with you then this is the monitor for you. You won't find lighter or more portable with just one wire connection and no need to find a power supply. That though is the E2251F's niche, because everything else just isn't flexible or good enough for general consumer use.
Screen is capable of displaying images in high quality
On the whole though, the i2353Ph is a no-nonsense monitor for the modern viewer. It has all the requisite hardware and technology to deliver high level performance. The best part is that the only effort required on the part of the user is to plug it in to power socket after removing it out of its packaging. Standard settings of 50 per cent brightness and 50 per cent contrast work like a charm and not much tweaking was required.
The mixture of value, simplicity and weight.
Despite the weaknesses, its nice to have a second display connected on the road. At only $150 you can't expect too much. I really like the added screen space, so I willingly compromised on the display quality issues and the awkward USB connector. It's good enough to keep your Twitter client and a chat client live as you work. You can watch a video podcast or keep your music player open and viewable. The wide-screen format makes it great for keeping a couple small windows open.
Incredibly energy efficient
The AOC e1649Fwu portable monitor is good-sized, reasonably priced and incredibly energy efficient. I can always tell if a product is a winner if I get the urge to buy it, and I'm seriously considering picking up one of these as a second monitor for my iMac and MacBook Air.
Poor quality video output
The problem with the AOC mySTage e2343Fi monitor isn't so much the fact that the screen is poor, or that the speakers in the base are lacklustre. Neither is it that the finish and build quality feel cheap, that the price is high, or that the iPod/iPhone dock doesn't do what you hope. No, the problem is all of these at once.
The panel itself, at 1,920x1,080 pixels, might have impressed us five years ago, but it's not good enough today.
Super-slim 23in full-HD monitor
If you're desperate to play back 3D content on your computer, then the AOC e2532Phz is an effective if not trouble-free solution. If you have an AMD-based graphics card and can't use nVivida's 3D Vision product, then this is an alternative way of playing 3D games and most of stereoscopic content you can find, with the notable exception of Blu-ray.
