This is a great monitor
Posted by: CWJac from: Kansas City, MO on
Just bought this monitor a few days ago so I don't know how well it will hold up. That said, first impressions are spectacular, and I thought this item could use a bump given the negative comments posted. So here goes. Took it out of the box, screwed on the stand. Plugged it in and went to town. That's it! My windows 7 computer went straight to the highest possible resolution. The colors are true. The icons are crisp. The contrast is exceptional. 4:3 material comes through as 4:3. Widescreen comes in as widescreen. Total PnP. I have no desire to play with the settings as I would almost certainly make things worse rather than better. Maybe I'm just stupid, but if the monitor is working great right out of the box, why are you trying to download an additional driver?
For the user who complained about the driver download failure. AOC has apparently addressed that and my monitor came with a separate sheet detailing the workaround for the problem. For the user complaining about disabled options on the OSD, maybe he just needed to actually read the on-disc manual which explained under what conditions some options weren't available because my monitor had every option it was supposed to have. For the user who complained about fuzzy icons, I don't know what the problem may be other than the graphics card or an old operating system. For the user complaining about no explicit windows 7 options, I suggest he just try the vista options instead. After all, windows 7 is at heart a vista fix not a completely different OS.
Bottom line. I think this monitor is getting criticized by some for all the wrong reasons. If PnP out of the box without any special driver downloads this monitor blows away any monitor I've previously owned, then @ $120, what's the problem. As I said at the beginning my only concerns are buying from a company I had never heard of before and therefore reliability is an open question.

Solid Monitor with a few disappointments
Posted by: srockafe from: IA on
This monitor was an excellent buy when I got it on sale. It's an IPS so the viewing angles are solid and the colors are accurate. I am not a big gamer so I can't attest to the response time; however it puts my 1080p hdtv to shame in most aspects.
I was disappointed after purchasing because of the misrepresentation made by the product image, but still bought another because for the price there wasn't anything better.
The biggest cons:
The display does not stretch to the edges of the monitor like the picture would lead you to believe. Not a negative for the product, but for Best Buy's display of the product.
The menu system has some extra features that are visible, but inaccessible. This indicates that the manufacturer took some shortcuts; hopefully this doesn't effect it's life span.

I spent about 2 months hunting for the right monitor for me. I needed to purchase 3 monitors for a 4 monitor setup. I already own a Lenovo monitor but wanted some more of similar quality.
I bought a few Acers online for about 130 bucks a piece. Returned them because the image was horribly washed out. They were LED and were okay quality, but I couldn't even mount the Acers to a monitor stand.
The thing that attracted me to the AOC monitors was 1) they are mountable and 2) they are IPS. I went to Best Buy to see what they looked like in person. The day that I went they had a special for $60 bucks off when you buy two, so basically they were $120 a piece.
I really wanted some 24" monitors, but I couldn't justify paying an extra $80 per monitor to have an extra two inches of screen. The image quality for this display was just too good. It also has a very slim bezel which makes for a very attractive look when the monitors are turned off.
As far as the picture quality goes, I am quite taken aback. I think I paid around $170 for the Lenovo monitor I currently own a few years ago, but the picture on this monitor trumps the Lenovo by a wide margin. The 1920x1080 resolution combined with the LED IPS display makes for a remarkably crisp image. The darks are nice and bold while the light colors are sharp and drawn out. I watch a lot of Hulu and Netflix on my computer and I don't think you can get a better picture with a television. I should note that I have a mid-high end graphics card so this may contribute to my positive experience.
Overall, at $120 this deal cannot be beat. I am a stickler for value and these monitors are far better than the Acers that I returned. The only thing I regret about this purchase is not investing in a 6 display setup and instead deciding to stick with 3. The value at this price is just too good.

Good monitor for the price.
Posted by: PCJunkie181 from: GA, USA on
AOC makes a good monitor. This one I set up as a secondary screen but if I was going to rely on it as my primary screen, I would have no concerns. The image is crisp and clean, easy and quick setup as most monitors are, The base for the stand is adequate for holding the screen as i've seen in a lot of monitors where the stands were too small or not stabilizing it very much which gives a wobbly screen. I would definitely get another one of these without thinking twice.

Monitor went bad on day after the return policy
Posted by: MrCTS from: Pinole,CA on
On the 16th day I see a vertical line that runs back and forth on the dispaly. Since it's past the 15 day retun period I have to wait for it to get reparied rather than just get it replaced.

Broke 3 weeks in
Posted by: Tesseract from: on
The screen just randomly started flickering various colors and now displays everything with a heavily tinted pink hue. It's going back tomorrow, but due to best buy's lousy return policy I'll probably be stuck with a replacement instead of a full refund.

Excellent Monitor At The Right Price
Posted by: Blastmonkey965 from: Rowland Heights,CA on
Even though I have purchased an LG IPS monitor from Best Buy (see my review on the LG 22EA53T-P) , in the end, I returned it for this monitor.
For one, it's cheaper. Purchased it @ $120. The LG IPS was purchased for $150. To me, I would prefer to keep the $30 in my pocket.
The colors are just as beautiful as the LG IPS, refresh rate is good with no lag playing games with my brand new GTX 780.
The bezel is nice and slim on the left and right hand side.
While AOC is not a well-known company, it does not mean that their gear is low quality. This monitor is a perfect example. Highly recommended monitor!

Excellent 1080p 8-bit IPS Budet Monitor
Posted by: vampiredirt from: Newark, DE on
If you are on a budget and you don't want to sacrifice quality, this is a great buy. I actually called AOC and asked them what panel they use and they said it's an LG 8-bit AH-IPS panel. That's an excellent panel, so if you are hesitating because you are worried about quality - don't hesitate - just buy it.
Note that the rear input is the old analog D-sub and DVI-D. Nobody should be using the D-sub anymore. There is no DVI-D cable included, so you might have to buy one. By the way, HDMI is built on top of the old DVI-D spec, so if all you have is HDMI out on your computer, don't worry. Just buy a HDMI to DVI-D cable or an adapter. They are the same pin to pin, there is no loss in quality because there is no conversion being done! Digital video cables are cheap nowadays, don't pay much for them.
Also, there are VESA 75mm holes on the back. You have to pop the bottom back panel and remove the stem that fits in to the stand first. It's easy, you just need a flathead screwdriver. I mounted the monitor to a desk arm and absolutely love being able to pull the monitor forward and backward as needed.

This AOC monitor is about the only brand that size with an internal power supply.
