Excerpt: AOC’s e2243Fw made a strong first impression on us: A glossy, piano-black frame houses this remarkably thin, 21.5-inch LCD monitor. In addition to being only 1/2-inch from front to back, it’s also extremely lightweight and flexible—and has a budget price, too. The entry-level price of $150 gets you TN technology and a WLED-backlit screen with a standard 16:9 aspect ratio and 1920x1080 resolution. It doesn’t, however, get you HDMI or DisplayPort.
Pros: Great price point; super thin.
Cons: Awkward OSD menu; trouble with digital noise, grays, and compression.
