AOC 16 inch portable PC monitor is powered by USB alone

Comments (2)

aoc-portable-monitor.jpgAOCs 16 inch monitor doesn't look all that impressive at first glance.

A dimunitive TFT screen running at 1366x768 resolution, it doesn't boast the viewing angles of an IPS display, nor the high resolutions.

It's strong USP however is that fact that it is both powered by and receives video signals from a USB port alone.

Portable at just 2.3lbs, you wont need to lug an extra power supply around with you, nor VGA/HDMI cables, with AOC promising that the power draw won't totally batter your laptop battery instantaneously.

With a fold away, swivelling kick-stand, it's also reasonably affordable at just $139.

It's a smart idea, showing just how energy efficient modern flat panels can be tuned to be. That said though, we're not wholly convinced there's a space in the market for the device. Plenty of smaller netbooks already have resolutions as high as 1366x768, so there's little benefit over the actual display size in that regards.

Perhaps as a secondary display for a tablet packing a full size USB? Or, if in the unlikely case it's compatible, as a portable display for a Xbox 360 or PS3 console? Scroll down for the full specs:

+ Panel Type: LED
+ Widescreen 16:09
+ Screen Size: 15.6"w
+ Viewable Image Size: 395 mm
+ Brightness (typical): 250cd
+ Contrast ratio (typical): 50,000,000:1
+ Response Time: 5ms
+ Max. Resolution: 1366x768 @60Hz
+ Input Signal: 1 USB
+ HDCP Compatible: No
+ Special Features: USB Powered

  • Hi,

    Samsung had made that kind of lcd which is only powered by a USB. Yes, it is helpful and useful for us to save money in paying electric bills. Also, it can perform the same thing like those monitor that is powered by 110-220 volts.

  • This looks like a fail in the future
