Summary: I purchased this monitor b/c i'm on the road alot and at client sites working off my laptop and found it very unproductive to be working off just one monitor. For about a month this AOC worked well and then it would start flickering so i'd have to wiggle the usb connection where it attaches to the monitor (under the stand - very difficult place for it to have been placed if you ask me). Then about a month after that it got worse.
Excerpt: Like many peoople, I work remotely on occasion. The problem for me, is I am a power user, using a lot of apps concurrently. I am used to a pair of 24" monitors. So mobile work for me is a real grind.But, with a portable extra display that runs off the usb, I can throw it in my briefcase along with my laptop. How sweet is that!I have only used this monitor for 2 weeks, but I can tell that it is going to be a game changer for my portable/mobile work.
Summary: This did work for a while. About 8 months, nice idea poor execution. The mini usb power port failed. Monitor did not get hard use, same use as all my other monitors. They have lasted for years. So me being a do it yourself guy, I decided to get a part and fix it. AOC gave me an exorbitant price for the tiny card that powers these things. "We have the part in stock below is the price, advice if you are interested?" - AOC rep.
Excerpt: I choose this product to add a third monitor and a USB monitor suited my purpose. The end result is that it was easy to setup and worked nicely for my needs. I would recommend the Aoc E1649FWU 16" LCD Monitor for similar applications.
Summary: I bought this product for use with a dual-boot Windows/Linux OS computer. This USB monitor would not function properly in the Linux environment, even after hours of troubleshooting by a certified IT professional (e.g. garbled display). Perhaps, the aforementioned complaint cannot be charged to AOC, per se, as the company does not necessarily advertise the monitor as Linux compatible.

Summary: Biggest issue I have had with this and others like it is the cable or the connection to the screen seems to wearout after WAY to short of a time. My wife has this one a little over a month and now it's not wanting to work for her.
Summary: The unit is of good quality, fairly light and a little thicker than I expected but since it powers up by way of USB and I don't have to carry another charger around which is a huge plus. I have to review several reports at times and I do a lot of presenting virtually so this has been a huge help for when I am on the road for work. The integrated stand, and the position sensor are great features.
