Good for the price

Austin A., Newegg
12 December 2015
  • Summary: I returned it after using it once, it may be okay if you need to present slideshows at some sort of conference or expo where outlet space is limited, but I was incorrect in thinking I could use this as my everyday monitor.
  • Pros: -Price for what you get is pretty good -Simple dual-monitor setup after you install software -no obvious color/contrast issues -no need for power cords, just takes up 2 USB slots -lightweight -collapsible stand
  • Cons: -Driver software has no settings UI that I could find, but as I don't have a CD drive I got the newest driver software from the company's website, disc might be different -Company driver page is a mess, hard to find what you need -Driver software is very fickle with some programs, won't play VLC ...

Does a PC good

Wesley F., Newegg
1 November 2015
  • Summary: OK, the display is not bad.(Thank you B. Nerd..... for your review. ) To LOGITECH, you might want to get with these guys and and make an ARX version of your software that works with their display as opposed to your idiotic part on your G910 kb that blocks part of MY display.
  • Pros: It works!!! USB cable fits well ( Some posters have said that buying another cable is better. For me...NOT.. see below
  • Cons: This is not a con but some posters have stated that they were trying to use this as some sort of display for their games!(I'm assuming AAA titles) Come on! Some of these games don't work well with $1000 AMD R9 series or NVIDIA GTX series video cards and $1000 monitors! How the heck do you think t...

Okay for a few months

Anonymous, Newegg
5 October 2015
  • Pros: Monitor is great for the price and was well worth it for a few months. The screen is very clear and the monitor is great for a second monitor to increase productivity. I bought a sleeve for the monitor while it is in my laptop bag to help protect it since the construction is not the sturdiest but...
  • Cons: After a few months of almost daily use, this monitor has began to flicker constantly (about once a minute or more) and is becoming unusable. While flickering, both monitors (my main monitor on my laptop and this monitor) are very hard to see and then the second monitor will act as if it is discon...

worked fine for about 8 months

John M., Newegg
22 September 2015
  • Summary: I would NOT buy this again. I don't know if the company makes junk but the next monitor will probably not be AOC. 8 months of light use (maybe once a month for a day) should not equal a dead monitor. Buyer Beware!
  • Pros: It works great as a portable second monitor for your laptop
  • Cons: However it just died out of nowhere three days ago with light use over the 8 months I owned it.

Good

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: On Mac running Yosemite, don't use the driver on the disc. It said the cert expired. I continued and installed anyway, but screen didn't turn on. I thought I got a defective unit and was thinking of returning it. Went to their website and downloaded the latest driver and it finally worked.
  • Pros: Great price. Relatively easy to set up. Bright. Lightweight.
  • Cons: No brightness and other adjustments. A little bit bulky. Some animation problems using with Mac.

Fine while it worked

William N., Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: Was a good bargain till it died, now it's more trash for my landfill and I'd still like a second monitor, but I'm not going to make the same mistake again.
  • Pros: Worked fine while it worked.
  • Cons: Failed after 17 months

AOC USB Monitor Perfect for Portability

Scarlet Voice, Amazon
12 May 2015
  • Summary: This USB-powered monitor met every expectation and then some. It is used in a remote multi-track recording suite and provided an easily used monitor in Europe (and now in the U.S.) without power system or cord concerns. The graphics are clear and vivid.

Good, lightweight, bright secondary screen.

Kevin Jennings "Husband, Father, Software Developer", Amazon
3 April 2015
  • Summary: I really like this screen. It's light, and works just as expected. Don't get me wrong, you're not going to play fast action games on this screen. But, as a secondary screen for things like watching coding tutorials while typing on your main screen, or demoing a software product, or doing a...

with Apple MacPro

Hayel G., Newegg
25 March 2015
  • Pros: I am using this with Apple MacPro laptop. some complained about the brightness of the screen, I find it brighter than average, the picture is sharper than the MacPro screen, now the apple screen feels ugly :( remember if u using it with apple to install the driver before connecting the USB, and r...
  • Cons: no big things, but the monitor is a bit thicker than it's suppose to be. the USB connector on the monitor looks poor made, didn't try it for long to know the case exactly.
