Summary: I do a lot of research on my purchases. It took me like a month to make a decision on my new computer setup and everything. But my family has always trusted Consumer Reports, and I saw they gave this a best buy award. I'd never heard of the brand AOC, but the description and specs seemed promising. Ive had this monitor now for about 2 years, and Ive yet to have ONE problem. A bit shaky and flimsy-feeling on its case, but otherwise i LOVE LOVCE LOVE it.
Summary: Seriously, guys. This monitor is phenomenal. it is slim- I wasn't sure how thin it would be, then I pulled it out of the packaging and it was thinner than my smartphone. on top of that, display is vivid and bright, and the blacks are very black. The way it can be mounted is pretty unique (i think). It is also very easy on the eyes- the bezel is thin and unobtrusive, yet still very classy. Multiple input types obviously is also a plus.

Summary: The monitor is pretty and I liked the configuration of the ports and stand. However, I bought this monitor as an external display for my new MacBook Pro with Retina Display 13in. I thought it would be great because I could hook up directly with an HDMI port on both devices. Not so. The image was disappointing at best. Way too bright/too contrasty and pixels were visible at shape edges and text looked jagged and inconsistent.
Summary: I bought two of these monitors, originally for my 2008 Mac Pro. They worked well, though at first it was tricky to get them adjusted properly using the calibration tool in the Displays preferences. There were also some issues with waking the displays from sleep, though I don't know whether those were due to the monitors or the older Mac hardware or the new Mac OS (Mountain Lion).
Summary: I have owned many monitors like samsung, asus, and Viewsonic. This monitor has excellent colors and viewing angles are great! My unit doesn't have light bleeding. It is very thin look and aluminum makes the monitor cool. This is not bad IPS display at all. My roommate has dell monitor and when he saw my monitor he was like wow color is very good and sometimes he said it is better than his dell monitor.
