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
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.
Summary: I purchased two of these monitors and was a little disappointed. The monitors don't have built in graphics good enough for even basic movie/hulu/youtube watching, let alone any kind of audio recording programs such as Ableton or Protools. Don't get these if you ever want to watch a movie. Other than that (which were all deal breakers for me), they're very light, sleek, bright, and quite portable (inside a laptop case). Don't expect much...
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.
Summary: I have bought 4 of these and the first was great. It was silent, bright enough on a single USB plug connection, and just great as a *third* monitor. The next three all emit a high pitched whine that is completely intolerable. I only returned one because I put two into a server room where the ambient sound was loud enough that you couldn't hear the whine. The fourth and final one was meant for a room that is too quiet... the whine drives everyone nuts.
Summary: The monitor worked just fine wasn't slow connected with one usb port. I didn't like that the cord had to be plugged into the back where the stand goes. So in order to store it you have to unplug it. I also didn't like how bulky it was, nearly 2 inches in depth. I didn't have space for that in my laptop bag. I returned the monitor, but its capabilities seemed fine, just a little inconvenient.
Summary: I bought this to be an extra monitor for my Alienware M14x (current generation, running Windows 7 with all updates). I noticed there was a problem immediately because when I connected the monitor to the laptop and it started emitting a very loud, high frequency, sound. The sound was not in any pattern, just constantly there. The monitor continuously flickered and was not able to keep the picture (blacking out, etc.
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.
