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. It went black 11 Feb 14 and will not light up under any circumstance.
Summary: I've used this MAYBE once a week and the port on the back of the monitor where the small end of the USB goes is broken. It won't make a connection. It happened while I was working and moving my mouse cord around the screen. I thought it must have been loose - like I hadn't plugged it in all the way. But no, it was plugged in but I can tell that the port is loose inside the monitor, if that makes sense. VERY disappointed. Yeah, it was under $100 but it was $89, not $39.
Summary: I've had two of these monitors now, the first one made a very loud buzzing noise while connected. I contacted Amazon and they gave me a refund and paid for the return shipping. I got a second one (7 months ago now) and there is now an issue where everything on the screen becomes very blurry. I assumed this was a software issue, however after updating the drivers and experiencing this issue on multiple computers I contacted AOC customer support.
Summary: The monitor looks OK, very light would make a great portable second monitor, but the driver will not load on my laptop. Running Windows 7. I contacted AOC technical support and the only advice was to download the latest driver. I had already told them that I downloaded the latest driver. Here is my support request: Driver will not install on Windows 7. Gives error that the file has been modified. downloaded latest driver from AOC web site. same error.
Summary: So, I bought this monitor for use when I travel. A friend of mine had one and on his first trip, it got crushed. He warned me about that potential, so I saved the box top, put it in a nice roller briefcase, and thought I treated it well. I was wrong. After only a few trips, this monitor is useless. It looks like it got crushed, but it was very safely handled. There are other models out there and if you're a business traveler, consider one of them.
