    Awesome monitor

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I bought this to hook up to my laptop because I got tired of the tiny laptop screen. I use my laptop as my main computer, actually my only home computer, and that's what I've done for many years. I have it sitting on a pedestal with a USB connected keyboard and wireless mouse because I can't stand laptop keyboards or the mousepad on a laptop. I bought this one specifically because it has an HDMI input and full high-definition. It has no speakers nor any speaker inputs but I listen to my music on my Klipsch computer speakers connected directly to the laptop. I got this on a Black Friday deal for $69 and it's one of the best purchases I've made in awhile. At 21.5" it's the perfect size. Not too big but certainly big enough to make it easier to read everything online and watch videos/movies. The picture is super crisp and the colors are great. I did notice the colors are super rich and I don't know if that's just from me seeing poor colors of my laptop or not, but they look great. If you hook this up to your laptop you have to do some fiddling with the settings on the laptop to get this monitor to be the primary one and to shut off your laptop screen. Not hard to do at all but just something to keep in mind when you hook it up to a laptop. My overall review of this monitor is I would certainly buy it again even if I had to pay more money for it. I had never heard of this brand before but it's great. I highly recommend this monitor as a great economical option if you're looking to save some money on a new monitor.

    amazing budget monitor

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is an amazing budget monitor if you can get it on sale. It does have its pros and cons. Like for example it is not VESA Mount compatible. However you can go online and for an additional premium buy an adapter that will make it vesa Mount compatible. It only has one VGA in and one HDMI in. Meaning that you either get an analog signal or you get a digital signal. Most computers nowadays have display ports so you would need to have some sort of converter cable to go from VGA 2 digital somehow or you would need a DisplayPort to HDMI if you are trying to connect this monitor. The other thing is on the support site at AOC it says that this monitor has speakers. But I have yet to get my speakers to work. It's to the point where I'm convinced that there may not be any. Which would be a shame because they should have just gone with DisplayPort if they were not planning on having sound since HDMI is capable of full HD sound. Again this may just be on my end but I have not yet to get the sound to work for any of the monitors that I purchased of the spread. Again this is a great solution if you need a budget screen and can get this on sale. But if you're looking for a multi monitor setup on a mount this is not an ideal solution. The color quality is really good being It Is 1920 by 1080 so it's full HD. It has really good color contrast. With very little bleeding. So if you need or in the market for something these things go on sale definitely pick one up because it is a good monitor again if you can get it on sale

    Probably a decent monitor, company is a trainwreck


    Got it home, plugged it in. Picture doesn't fill up screen. Documentation that came with it is somewhere between non-existent and completely use it. Luckily I've been an IT field tech so I use to deploy stuff like this for a living. Navigated through the settings using the monitor buttons, nothing there that makes the picture fill the screen. Like I said no user manual in the box. Go to the website. Find the manual. Manual says the monitor comes with a CD in the box, it didn't. Turns out there's a driver for the monitor too. Once again, nothing in the box tells you there's a driver or even a manual. It's like the company has such contempt for their customers, they can't be bothered to do anything more than put six letters with a dot in the middle on the outside of the box. Downloaded and installed the driver. Didn't help. By this time I hated AOC and didn't want to give them any of my money so I boxed the monitor up and returned it. Bought something much nicer but spent about 50% ($40) more. That's the last time I'll by anything for myself from AOC and I'd think twice about it if I were you too.

    Connected laptop speakers work, great device!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I saw a lot of reviews complaining that this monitor has no speakers and when connected to a laptop you cannot listen to music through your laptop speakers, I am here to tell you that you can! When you connect the monitor to your laptop using an HDMI cable your default speakers automatically default to whatever is connected through the HDMI. While your HDMI cable is connect to the monitor go to your speakers settings and change your default speakers back to your laptop and you can listen to music through your laptop speakers again! I use the second screen only mode (my laptop screen does not display anything and this monitor displays everything) and I still can listen to music from my laptop speakers. I also tried it in extended screen mode (so this monitor is an extension of my laptop screen) and it worked! I love this monitor and the clarity. it works great for using split screen while working with multiple documents. My only complaint is no USB ports to connect my mouse and keyboards to. I have a wireless mouse though and my keyboard cord is long enough that I can connect them to a usb hub on my laptop. I also connect my usb mass storage device through my laptop.

    Excellent display

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    Had this monitor about 3 months, and quite frankly I've been completely blown away by it. I bought it for 60 over black Friday weekend, but honestly it's a steal for 100. Beautiful colors that are true to life out of the box, didn't have to adjust any settings like my last 2 monitors from Asus and Acer. Input lag is comparable to my 1 Ms Asus gaming monitor, which makes it great for gaming. I find no trouble playing overwatch and destiny where I need fast reaction times. No detectable motion blur, and I don't see any bleeding whatsoever. It's full HD (1080), and it looks excellent, I can't see nearly as much pixelation as with my last monitors (they are larger displays at the same resolution, so this is expected) and IPS does make more viewing agles look good, but I'm always looking directly at it so not a huge selling point for me. Still, magnificent monitor for the price. I have had one other aoc monitor, which is why I braved trying a $60 monitor, and both have exceeded my expectations in every way. Great brand. Great monitor. Better than any Dell, Asus, Acer or Samsung monitor that I've seen under $300. I literally couldn't be happier.

    Completely unreliable. Waste of money

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Monitor was working fine for the first three months but, started to experience issues with the display. One day all of sudden the monitor stopped responding to input signal for both inputs (HDMI and VGA). Had to ship the monitor for service and i had to pay for one way shipping because after 3 months AOC service won't cover shipping . Moreover, AOC service simply shipped back the monitor the same day it reached their service center. Didn't provided any information on what they did. Since, i still had the display issue, i contacted customer care and shipped the monitor second time. Though, its working now, on VGA, i'm seeing a line blinking. I'm tired of this monitor, planning to get another one, definitely, not AOC. My suggestion is its worth to spend a little bit more money on monitor brands that can provide better service (Samsung/HP/DELL/LG).

    good monitor for what I paid for it

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is my first purchase of a product from this company AOC, and I am very satisfied with the quality of the image. The price that I paid for a 21 inch monitor was phenomenal only $75 including tax. It would have been nice if it had speakers so that I could listen to music through it, but I chose this monitor for business purposes not for entertainment. I can still enjoy certain things on this monitor using headphones which is a bonus. Anyone who needs a basic monitor, or one as a second monitor, I would highly recommend it as long as you don't need to listen to music through speakers. The only major drawback is that it cancels the ability for my laptop to play music through the speakers that I have connected through the headphone jack, and no sound comes out of my laptop once the monitor is connected using the HDMI connection which is why I have to use a headset.

    Great monitor for the price

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This monitor has a very clear and bright display. This is my first 1080 monitor and I really like it. There are a couple of things to be aware of though: 1) There is no sound output port. 2) As another reviewer mentioned, the cable from the monitor to the power brick is pretty short. It's only 3 feet long, so unless you can place the monitor at the edge of a 32-inch or so high desk, you are going to end up having the power brick on top of your desk (like me). I would buy another monitor made by AOC, but next time I would look for one with a sound port, at least 2 HDMI inputs (this model has 1 HDMI input), and hopefully a longer monitor to power brick cord. It's excellent display-wise, but I wouldn't recommend it to a friend for the above reasons.
