AOC e1649Fwu Portable USB Monitor: A good match for your MacBook

 

As many TUAW readers know, I have a serious love affair with my 11" MacBook Air. If there's one issue that I have with it, it's that sometimes that screen...

AOC e1649Fwu

 

The 15.6-inch TN+ panel is framed by thin 0.50-inch bezels on the sides and slightly wider 0.75-inch bezels on the top and bottom. The bottom bezel sports a silver AOC logo. Like the rest of the cabinet, the bezels and screen coating are glossy and...

Affordably priced. Good color and small text performance. USB powered. Auto-pivot

Weak grayscale performance. Narrow viewing angles. Reflective screen. Bulky

The AOC e1649Fwu is a reasonably priced portable 15.6-inch monitor that gets its signal and power from your laptop's USB port. It offers good color quality and sharp text reproduction, but its glossy screen is a fingerprint magnet and is very reflective.

Good for the price

 

I returned it after using it once, it may be okay if you need to present slideshows at some sort of conference or expo where outlet space is limited, but I was incorrect in thinking I could use this as my everyday monitor.

-Price for what you get is pretty good -Simple dual-monitor setup after you install software -no obvious color/contrast issues -no need for power cords, just takes up 2 USB slots -lightweight -collapsible stand

-Driver software has no settings UI that I could find, but as I don't have a CD drive I got the newest driver software from the company's website, disc might be different -Company driver page is a mess, hard to find what you need -Driver software is...

Does a PC good

 

OK, the display is not bad.(Thank you B. Nerd..... for your review. ) To LOGITECH, you might want to get with these guys and and make an ARX version of your software that works with their display as opposed to your idiotic part on your G910 kb that...

It works!!! USB cable fits well ( Some posters have said that buying another cable is better. For me...NOT.. see below

This is not a con but some posters have stated that they were trying to use this as some sort of display for their games!(I'm assuming AAA titles) Come on! Some of these games don't work well with $1000 AMD R9 series or NVIDIA GTX series video cards...

Okay for a few months

 

Monitor is great for the price and was well worth it for a few months. The screen is very clear and the monitor is great for a second monitor to increase productivity ; I bought a sleeve for the monitor while it is in my laptop bag to help protect it...

After a few months of almost daily use, this monitor has began to flicker constantly (about once a minute or more) and is becoming unusable. While flickering, both monitors (my main monitor on my laptop and this monitor) are very hard to see and then...

worked fine for about 8 months

 

I would NOT buy this again. I don't know if the company makes junk but the next monitor will probably not be AOC. 8 months of light use (maybe once a month for a day) should not equal a dead monitor. Buyer Beware!

It works great as a portable second monitor for your laptop

However it just died out of nowhere three days ago with light use over the 8 months I owned it.

Good

 

On Mac running Yosemite, don't use the driver on the disc. It said the cert expired. I continued and installed anyway, but screen didn't turn on. I thought I got a defective unit and was thinking of returning it. Went to their website and downloaded...

Great price. Relatively easy to set up. Bright. Lightweight

No brightness and other adjustments. A little bit bulky. Some animation problems using with Mac
