AOC 2036Sa Piano-black Glossy 20" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 60000:1 Built-in Speakers


I switched to this from a small very old box monitor. When I hooked this up it was like "MAN, I CAN SEE

Speakers are terrible, and they play out the back of the monitor, so since it's in an enclosed space, I can't hear it at all, plus they sound like garbage anyways

AOC 2036Sa 20' monitor- speaker volume very low


this monitor has a great picture & functions very well, the only thing is the speaker volume. I have everything as high as it can go, you still can hardly hear it. unless you have externial speakers, don't but it.

The image qualityis satisfying, the look of the monitor is quite nice compared to it's price. Setting it up is easy, however, more detailed instructions would be better for beginners. I've been using it for 4 months, no issues at all. Works like a charm.

The speakers' sound quality is redicilous. They're worse than any mobile phone's speakers, and they're facing backwards. So they're prettu much unusable for anything except the basic Windows sounds.

AOC 2036Sa


This is an excellent monitor, 20" is definitely big enough, looks amazing wall mounted, image is crystal clear even though it is not HD. Although it does not have inbuilt speakers, the price still warrants paying out extra if you need them and you...

As far as I am aware there is no downside!
