DisplayLink and AOC today announced the retail availability of the new e1649fwu portable USB 2.0 monitor. The display is built by AOC and powered by a DisplayLink DL-125 chip, hence the hand-holding between these two companies in introducing the display to the public. Lightweight and relatively inexpensive, the e1649fwu provides 15.6 inches of real estate with a maximum resolution of 1366x768 at 60Hz, and both the video and power are piped through USB.
The newest edition to AOC's AireLED Series is a 23-inch monitor with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel and a price tag that won't necessarily scare off budget conscious shoppers. AOC's new Aire Pro i2353Ph hits retail at $199, and with 23 inches of screen real estate, this is one of the least expensive IPS monitors in the market with a large enough panel to not feel like you're sacrificing size for quality.
AOC just sent us word about a new 16-inch USB monitor (e1649fwu) it designed to transform your single-display notebook into a dual-monitor or multi-monitor machine with minimal fuss. Simply plug it into a free USB port and you'll be off and running with multiple displays; there's no power cord or VGA cable to mess around with.
Between tablets, all-in-one (AIO) PCs, smartphones, and even desktop monitors, computer users are going to have to learn to keep their hands clean or risk gunking up all their gear with finger grease. The latest addition to the 'touch me!' crowd is AOC's aptly named Touch Monitor (e2239FwT), a 22-inch LCD display with LED backlight, Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, and multi-touch capabilities.
AOC recently launched the Aire Black LED, a family of three new displays that fall under the company's existing AireLED Series. The Aire Black LED line ships in 20-inch (e2043Fk), 22-inch (e2243Fwk) and 23-inch (e2343Fk) models, each one sporting a super slim panel measuring a scant 12.7mm. According to AOC, these are some of the slimmest monitors on the market.
AUO, a leading TFT-LCD panel maker following the mergers of Acer Display Technology and Unipac Optoelectronics Corporation in 2001, and with Quanta Display Inc. in 2006, is gearing up for the Display Taiwan 2010 convention with some nifty screen technologies, not the least of which is the largest projected capacitive multi-touch LCD anywhere in the Milky Way.
Measuring 32 inches, AUO says its relatively ginormous multi-touch panel will come capable of recognizing ten touch points simultaneously. AUO also claims that so-called "ghost points" -- areas that are falsely registered during the detection process -- won't be an issue.
Keeping with the world's largest theme, AUO will also be showing off the largest commercialized 3D TV panel measuring 65 inches. Viewing 3D content on the 65-inch display will require wearing polarized 3D glasses, though AUO also plans to showcase other 3D display technologies in smaller form factors, including glasses-free barrier and lenticular lens types.
Grungy PC users can forget about over-paying for a Mac just to appear more hip and appease that inner fanboy (which, incidentally, is now an officially recognized word). Instead, shed your PC room's fashion faux pas with AOC's new 22-inch 2218Ph LCD monitor, or so the company implies. AOC claims its new monitor "finally brings PC users the element of style Mac users have enjoyed for the last few years." In addition to 'state-of-the-art metallic workmanship,' the $429.99 2218Ph touts:
12,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
HDCP-compliant HDMI input
2ms response time
1680 x 1050 native resolution
Illuminating touch key control
Of course, if you're trying to impersonate a Mac user, take extra caution when others are around. Removing the side panel to upgrade a crucial component or firing up a bevy of games are surefire ways of exposing yourself as an uncouth PC user, even if you're wearing jeans and sipping a Starbucks.
