    Was excited for this got it for 59.99 black Friday, used two for the home office, problem is if screens are on an angle you see lines. It was very apparent looking at documents on screen. I had best Buy look at it. His guess is the anti glare screen adhesive caused the lines on the screen. Best Buy refunded it no problem. I tried buying a 24 inch LG from another store but one has a reddish tint and both are unusually dark images. Just am not having good luck with monitors! I have two AOC 20 inch from two years ago they still work great. I hope AOC can get the issue with this monitor fixed.

    The AOC was a lesser know company to me but since I was looking for something to act as a dual screen for my computer simply to do day to day work or watch movies it's perfect. Sure it may not have all the bells and whistles but if you aren't a hardcore gamer... The AOC gets the job done and is actually great quality. For me, I was willing to spend 200 on a screen and settled with this one. I think it holds it own pretty well against others in the price range. One thing I would change is the non-adjustable stand. Although not having the adjustable stand allows it to maintain a sleek profile.

    I bought this as a spur of the moment purchase when I bought my new desktop a month ago. I was just going to buy a cheap ole $60 monitor from Walmart and upgrade later, but the salesman talked me into buying this monitor that was the cheapest available in Best Buy but still great quality. It's safe to say I'm glad he talked me into it, as I'm sure this monitor will be lasting me MUCH longer than a cheap one from Walmart. As the description says it is smudge resistant, which is a huge plus. Design is sleek and thin and the monitor's resolution is great!

    I've had this monitor for a little over 2 months and in general, it's a good monitor for the $80 price (on sale). A few things which keeps this from a 5-star review is that it does not telescope (only tilts) and the power/adjustment buttons are located on the bottom surface of the panel (instead of facing you). Otherwise, screen is bright and has no pixel issues. I purchased this with the 4-year Geek Squad warranty.

    This is not a monitor that will blow you away. At this price, you shouldn't expect that. But for a no frills, 1080p, 60 hz monitor, it works just fine. Color representation is a little washed out, but still noticably better than my older LG model. Text is clear, moderate gaming is fine, and the build quality is pretty good (there are a couple dead pixels though). Again, nothing flashy, but I'm not complaining at this price.

    I mainly got this monitor because the stand was short and I didn't like cranking my neck up to look at my old one. It is basic, but has a clear picture and is a nice size. No bells and whistles as far as I can tell. I haven't read the online manual, so maybe they are there and I don't know. The one thing I don't like is that the buttons are hidden on the bottom side of the frame, so you must find them by feel. So far I haven't had to adjust them, so it hasn't been a problem, but if I did it would be confusing. I've only had it a week, but so far I'm pleased.

    This TV served it’s purpose when I bought it, I got in discount for $64. For that price it was all I needed: a cheap monitor that I could use right away. Compared to my Mac the screen quality leaves much to be desired, as it’s only 1920x1080. It is also not as crisp as other monitors. I would go for a slightly bigger one if I had to buy it again. For the ports, it only has 1 HDMI and 1 VGA. I would only recommend this if you have no real state in your desk, as you can put things under it.

    A simple up and running monitor.

    It's a fairly basic monitor, not best in color depth but not the worst by far. If you need something now the price is about right or need a second or third monitor extra desktop space. If you're doing any kind of digital content creation that is dependent on displaying a broader range of colors(photo editing, video editing, etc) you might want to look for something else, otherwise this product will serve you just fine. You may have to purchase a separate cable to connect to your system as this only comes with a standard DVI cable.

    I bought the monitor at a discounted price less than $70 and you can't beat it. Quality is good with two connectors: HDMI and VGA, basically compatible with any laptops. Screen resolution is decent, bright and legible. There are shortcuts set up to adjust the level of brightness, color, and hue in regards to your activity (e.g. reading, browsing, game, etc). I use the monitor only for works and browsing so don't have a higher expectation of rate response. Overall it is a good monitor for every penny I spent.

    This is really great monitor. I'm using this now. It's light and thin. These go on sale sometimes so keep an eye! It's good to mention that this monitor shakes very easy when you hit the desk it sits on! So if you put this on a desk, and if hit the desk unintentionally, it will shake easily! This is not a problem for me but I thought it would be great to mention it.

    Nice monitor for extended desktop

    The AOC 21.5" IPS LED FHD Monitor is an excellent monitor to use with your main desktop computer, or as an extended one for your laptop. I prefer doing a lot of my layout work and charts on large monitors but it's difficult on a laptop screen. The AOC monitor was reasonably priced for an HDMI-connectable monitor, plus you can daisy-chain them to another one if you need even more display room to work with.

    I've used this monitor without problems. It has one very good feature: when the computer power is off, the monitor is completely dark, even when the monitor power is on. That is, the screen is not visible even with the lights off in the room. The screen is very sharp and bright. The controls are direct; menus are not complicated. Only down side, is that has no speakers associated with the HDMI input. (Of course the monitor advertisements note this, but I did not think about it when I purchased the unit.)

    I bought this monitor to use with my old laptop. It is a fantastic improvement over using the laptop screen. Very bright, great contrast and very clear. I couldn't be happier. ALSO, Best Buy dropped the price just after I bought mine so I got the Price Match refund via an incredible online Customer Support person. Literally it took 5 minutes for the refund to appear in my PayPal account.

    I bought this monitor when it was on sale for about 80 dollars and for the price, I am really surprised. First of all, the build quality is really nice and looks modern. The IPS display is a really bright display making colors look beautiful. I personally use this monitor for video editing and as a second monitor other than my 144hz display. For the price, this is a steal.

    I bought this monitor when it was discounted on President Day for $69. The monitor exceeds my expectation regarding quality. I used it as an extra one beside my 13" laptop and this really improves my productivity as it add extra spaces for my multi-task works. A highly recommend product. Beware that this monitor does not come with an HDMI cable, but a VGA one, so you have to buy one separately if you want to plug it into your computer HDMI port.

    I was looking for a decent monitor to work from home without spending a lot of money to have more screen than just my laptop. I wasn't looking for a huge screen, so 21" was just fine. The AOC really does well for this. It doesn't work well with the included serial cable, so get the HDMI to HDMI or video port to HDMI cable right away to save some frustration. Now it works great and has a clear screen and good colors.

    Bought a pair of these for a quick and easy monitor on a couple Christmas gaming rigs I built. Response time is pretty good, colors are okay, maybe a bit washed out, but pretty good for the price. Only complaint is that the Monitors have VGA and HDMI for input ports--no DP or DVI even, Be aware of this and buy an extra DP Cable or something that'll work with your system to the HDMI port. I would buy again for a midrange PC or a second monitor.

    So I purchase this because I need a bigger screen for presentations and can't afford a new laptop. So far so good. Easy to set up and even transport in a computer bag (I don't recommend making a habit of carrying an unprotected monitor around). The plate goes on and off in a second, the back bar tilts and it fits pretty perfectly in a mid-sized computer bag or book bag. So if you need a second screen to take to small meetings- this is good.

    I originally purchased a HP monitor from the store but when I saw this AOC for the price I decided to go with it and ordered it up and returned the HP and I’m pretty glad I did, even though the HP was a high name and I’m sure good quality the AOC surprised me a ton with how nice it is actually and I saved about $70 on the screen and the hdmi cable as well so why not go with this one

    I have purchased this monitor in Black Friday deal for good price. Main reason to get this monitor is that it is IPS monitor, which allows great view angles and colors reproduction. It works great for picture editing specially since my laptop have TN screen. The monitor also has VGA & HDMI inputs which I found useful to connect another computer that I use. The display is clear and bright even thought the dot size is small.
