Have you ever wanted an extra monitor that you could take with you when you work on those TPS reports at Starbucks? This new AOC USB monitor could be just the ticket. Delivering both power and signal over a single USB 3.0 connection to your laptop (or desktop), the memorably-named AOC I1659FWUX doesn't even need a power cable. How convenient is that?

Roughly the same dimensions as an equivalently-sized laptop, the AOC I1659FWUX features a 15.6-inch IPS display (marketed as a 16-inch screen) with full HD resolution, 220 cd/m2 brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio, and a convenient built-in kickstand for both portrait and landscape orientations.

Since it utilizes an IPS panel, this AOC USB monitor provides 160 degree viewing angles both vertically and horizontally, making it an ideal secondary screen for boosting productivity. They say you can use it for video editing and photo retouching too, but based on my experience with DisplayLink before, your mileage may vary.

The AOC I1659FWUX USB monitor is available now on Amazon for $149.90. It even comes with a convenient carrying case. Full press release with tech specs below.

New AOC 16" USB Monitor Makes the Perfect Laptop or Desktop Companion

Fremont, Calif. – May 9, 2017 – AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the AOC 16” class USB Monitor (I1659FWUX), with IPS panel and powered by DisplayLink Technology.

The USB monitor is ultra slim and lightweight for maximum portability. Its small footprint makes it perfect for displaying business presentations or adding a second monitor to your laptop or desktop for increased productivity. The widescreen monitor receives both power and signal via a single USB 3.0 cable for plug-and-play connection. It does not require a dedicated power cord or VGA cable, and comes with a foldable flexi-stand for maximum flexibility. It will be available at Amazon for $149.99 ($199 MSRP). The USB monitor will launch on May 12 and is available for pre-order from Amazon here.

USB 3.0 technology achieves high transfer rates and delivers high quality images. Designed with a piano-black glossy finish, this USB monitor features a 15.6” screen, 700:1 contrast ratio, 25ms response time, and a beautiful 1920x1080 Full HD resolution at 60Hz. The IPS panel renders vivid colors with wide viewing angles.

The 16” USB Monitor with its foldable flexi-stand is ideal for viewing in landscape or portrait mode. Landscape mode is ideal for presentations and spreadsheets, while the Portrait mode conveniently gives you an easy vertical view of your instant messaging programs, infographics, or search results. This monitor has a unique auto-pivot feature that automatically adjusts the image according to the display’s orientation, so you will never have to change settings as you switch between landscape and portrait mode. The AOC USB Monitor is also VESA 75 x 75 mm compliant, allowing you to easily mount the USB monitor to any VESA compatible mount. Multiple USB monitors can also be simultaneously connected to a single laptop or desktop computer to function as a multi-monitor PC or Mac, thanks to the built-in DisplayLink technology.
