Fremont, Calif. — AOC unveiled Thursday a 17-inch ultra-lightweight and slim one-cable USB monitor.
AOC LCD model E1759FWU (available now through Amazon at a $199 suggested retail) will include DisplayLink Technology and is compatible with both Macs and PCs.
AOC is positioning the display at business professionals, particularly frequent travelers who need to pack and carry multiple displays to take on the road.
The monitor offers a widescreen aspect ratio and receives both power and signal via a single plug-and-play USB cable, eliminating the need for a separate power cord or VGA cable.
The monitor includes a foldable stand that goes from landscape to portrait view mode on an auto-pivot that automatically adjusts the image according to the display’s orientation. The unit is USB 3.0 compatible to achieve high transfer rates of high-resolution data and graphics. It offers a piano-black glossy finish, a 17.3-inch (1,600 by 900) LCD screen, and a 10ms, 60Hz response time.
The AOC USB monitor is also VESA 75-by-75 mm compliant, for easy wall mounting.
The built-in DisplayLink USB graphics allow multiple USB monitors to be simultaneously connected to a single laptop or desktop computer to function as a multi-monitor PC or Mac.
