For me multiple monitors are a must, right now as I type this I’m running four of them on this computer actually. They just allow me to do so many more things at one time. When I go back to a single monitor it just feels so weird to me, that’s one of the reasons I think I don’t care for using a laptop or netbook. It doesn’t bother me though when I’m using my tablet, I guess it’s a different sort of thing there. AOC today announced a 16” portable UBS monitor that can be used with your regular computer or take it with you to use with your laptop. This monitor is model e1649fwu and it has a 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, along with a resolution of 1366×768 and it offers a 6ms response time. it’s an LED LCD display running 16:9 and it even has a nice built in smart stand that folds back into the unit for storage or portability. The e1649fwu has an MSRP of $139 and it will be available sometime in October from most major retailers.
With the launch of the USB Monitor, AOC continues its commitment to providing the latest in digital display technologies and innovative styling. The 16-inch e1649fwu model also offers impressive image quality with 50,000,00:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 5ms response time and 1366 x 786 resolution. A handy built-in Smart Stand pivots out when needed and stores flush against the back of the monitor when not in use. The foldable stand supports both portrait and landscape display. Because the monitor does not require a power cord or VGA cable, it permits maximum portability while still allowing the display of multiple applications like instant messenger, movie player, gaming and digital picture frame apps.
The e1649fwu has a clean and modern aesthetic that is complemented by a black piano-polish finish on the bezel, while a hard glass screen offers superior protection. One laptop can support multiple USB Monitor connections to create a multi-monitor setup. The USB Monitor is also compatible with desktop PCs.
Every AOC monitor is manufactured to meet the most stringent green standards. Along with being mercury free, the packaging for the eco-friendly USB Monitor is made from recycled materials. In addition, AOC’s industry-leading LED display technology allows for a powerful and crystal clear display while minimizing power consumption.
