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.
Summary: Just got it and was so excited to try it. Would never power up and first I thought it was because it was my new macbook was running yosemite. I tried it on an older version mac, still no luck. Tried powering directly to see if i could get some life out of this, still no luck.
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...
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).
I wasn't very optimistic and was still very disapointed.

Summary: Terrible. Do. Not. Buy. Not worth it in any way. I read the reviews saying not to buy, but I saw the complaints and thought I would be able to fix or work around. The product is a great idea but terrible execution.
Summary: I bought this as a productivity monitor for use with my Dell laptop when traveling. I love the concept. It is lightweight, portable, and automatically flips between landscape and portrait just like a cellphone.
Summary: This USB monitor was a great buy, up until their most recent update. Now, the two laptops (an ASUS Gaming and an HP) that were working fine no longer have a stable screen. I've submitted a support ticket with AOC, which pointed me to updating my USB drivers, which at least let the monitor connect to...
Summary: I had read a couple of reviews on this product regarding it going dead after a few months but figured these were isolated incidents because there were quite a few positive reviews. Well I guess I should have been more pessimistic. It was purchase in late Sept 2013 and used for 3-4 hours per day.
