User Review

nurselaura11, Walmart
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Bought to use as 2nd monitor for work. You have to install software to use it. Once I did that, my internet shut down. Gave me lots of problems. Ended up having to uninstall it--and returned it. Got a regular monitor at Best Buy for the same price--but had to buy the adapter to plug in to USB.

Works well, when it works

jo, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: I do actually like this monitor. It gives me the little extra workspace I need when working on design projects or writing papers and trying to research at the same time. However, I use Mac Mavericks (OS 10.9.2) and it seems that every time I restart my computer, I need to reinstall the driver. It took me a while to figure this out, because one day, after a restart, I plugged in the monitor and the screen remained blank.

Low Cost and Simple, but Doesn't Work Well with Excel

Mark Dunmire, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Monitor looks great and has good image quality for the money. The USB hookup was really easy and worked great. But when working with spreadsheets, all functions in excel take much longer (especially saving or re-calculating a large spreadsheet). This was true even if I only displayed the spreadsheet on my primary display (a 24" Viewsonic connected via DVI). As soon as I unplugged the AOC usb monitor, excel worked like normal.

It changes the icons on my main machine

,, TigerDirect.com
2 August 2013
  • Summary: I will never use this and was a waste of $. I am a sales rep and do presentations with my laptop and thought this would be more professional for my clients to view. I have 100 icons on the desktop that I need - every time you connect this monitor it scrambles them all up - unacceptable

Finally working

Lane, Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: I first installed it on my primary computer with no results. I used a variety of USB ports and combinations with no luck. Not even a flicker of light. I downloaded the latest drivers and no luck. I installed it on my newest computer that I'm building and finally got it to work. I tried three different ports. The USB pci card slot did not work, the usb 3.0 powered slot did not work, finally the usb slot on the motherboard worked.

for $100 i expected more

raystorm,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Like all the other review this screen emits a loud and annoying high pitched sound. Also the viewing angle on this thing is terrible in portrait view, if you look at the top of the screen everything is all off color and if you move left or right then you get the same problem for the rest of the screen. This screen barely gets 20 fps off a laptop, and gets a standard 30fps off an desktop.

Buzzing display

  • Summary: My monitor has a high pitched, fairly loud and annoying sound that comes from it when I plug it in. Is that normal for these displays?

Better off buying Toshiba monitor

K.I., Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this AOC monitor from Amazon because I wanted to use it as my laptop's extension monitor. I have two monitors for my desktop PC at home and at office. I wanted the same setup on the road as well. I chose model over Toshiba's: Toshiba 14-inch USB Ultra-portable Mobile LCD Monitor because this monitor was supposed to have better contrast ratio & response time than the Toshiba. Although that's what their spec sheet says, the evidence says otherwise.
