AOC's 22-inch USB Powered HD Display Now Available

DisplayLink sounds like a proud papa, as it's currently announcing the availability of AOC's new 22-inch High Definition USB Powered Display, model e2251Fwu.

DisplayLink said on Wednesday that the new AOC monitor uses its USB 2.0 graphics and connectivity technology to enable both power and real-time video compression/decompression through a single USB connection while still supporting plug-and-play connectivity. This way, consumers don't need an additional power socket when creating a dual or multi-monitor setup with a desktop or laptop.

"It seems that all users—home and business— are now living in a world that demands multi-tasking, and as such, the need for multiple screens has risen exponentially," said John Cummins, VP of sales and marketing for DisplayLink. "AOC’s 22-inch High Definition USB Powered Display enables multiple monitors to be added to any desktop/notebook computer platform through the connection of a tidy and simple USB cable at an accessible price point."

The new 22-inch display's specs include a thickness of 10.6-mm, a 5ms response time, a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD), and eco-friendly packaging. It's supported on all leading operating systems including Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7 & Apple Mac OS X Tiger / Leopard and Lion. It even comes with a convenient detachable stand that allows it to be used with or without the base like a picture frame -- too bad there's no touch support.

Also available today is AOC's 16-inch portable version, model e1649Fwu. It too uses DisplayLink's USB 2.0 graphics and connectivity technology, but also features a built-in Smart Stand that pivots when needed, and offers 1366 x 786 resolution.

AOC’s 22-inch High-Definition Powered Display ($199), and the 16-inch Portable USB Monitor ($149), are available for purchase through the DisplayLink Shop and us.aoc.com, as well as major electronics retailers including Best Buy, HHGreg, Costco, Tiger Direct, Nebraska Furniture, ABC Warehouse and Electronics Express.

    Shut up and take my money AOC.

    I'm getting tired of clogging up my power strips with monitors.

    AOC e2251Fwu specification "10W maximum"
    10W = +5V (USB Voltage) x 2A Current

    USB 2.0 specification is 0.5A Current per port!!!

    The article implies that you can turn this monitor
    in any laptop. Old asus Eeepc and many others have a limit 0.6A per port.

    yordan, I'm guessing it does only need 1 free usb2 port - a quick check around seems to back this up. There's no mention of multi-port requirements.....kinda something that would be picked up on? Google search might of tripped up, though (damnit, I'm not blaming me if i'm wrong! lol)
