USB-powered, ultra-light monitor is the ideal portable laptop accessory for multi-tasking

Fremont, Calif.  – September 20, 2011– AOC, the worldwide leader in monitor display technology, announces the sleek and portable USB Monitor, the ultimate laptop accessory. The lightweight monitor features a convenient built-in USB port that receives both power and signal via a single USB cable for plug-and-play connection. The monitor does not require a power cord or VGA cable, and is ideal for dual- and multi-monitor setups. Along with functioning as an extended display, the accessory can also be used for on-the-go presentations. The AOC USB Monitor will be available at major retail chains nationwide in October 2011. The 16-inch model (e1649fwu) will have an MSRP of $139.

“The USB Monitor showcases AOC’s dedication to expanding its display offerings and using the latest technologies to come out with innovative and user friendly products,” said Robert Velez, Marketing Manager of AOC. “The USB Monitor is ideal for business presentations, photo frame applications, multiple monitor displays and as a companion monitor for laptop and netbook users who want more out of their computer.”

With the launch of the USB Monitor, AOC continues its commitment to providing the latest in digital display technologies and innovative styling. The 16-inch e1649fwu model also offers impressive image quality with 50,000,00:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 5ms response time and 1366 x 786 resolution. A handy built-in Smart Stand pivots out when needed and stores flush against the back of the monitor when not in use. The foldable stand supports both portrait and landscape display. Because the monitor does not require a power cord or VGA cable, it permits maximum portability while still allowing the display of multiple applications like instant messenger, movie player, gaming and digital picture frame apps.

The e1649fwu has a clean and modern aesthetic that is complemented by a black piano-polish finish on the bezel, while a hard glass screen offers superior protection.

It is nice but I almost feel like it would be easier to carry around a pico projector and have an even bigger screen.

Well maybe this is just perfect for me, because I have quite a few spare & old smaller case computers. I only have one 27" inch Asus monitor & one Sony 42" inch LCD TV that I use to hook up my computers to, also my TV gets my flat mates to hook up to it also with their pc. Now this will come in handy when I want to just boot up an old pc just to get up online line incase I have trouble with my other hooked up computers. Anyway who wants to unhook & rehook up your pc to your monitors all the time.

I really like this. I'm living abroad and don't want to purchase a monitor as it will be a pain in the ass to bring it with me as I move. This looks like a really good solution!
