THE STYLE MON­I­TOR

THE AOC I2757FH is what you don’t ex­pect a mon­i­tor to look like. In fact, it looks more like a high-end tele­vi­sion. But this is ac­tu­ally a 27-inch LED mon­i­tor and not a 55-inch LED tele­vi­sion.

The de­sign is very unique with a borderless LED IPS panel be­ing held in place a by a brushed alu­minum tray. The tray in turn is perched on an­other alu­minum base. On the tray are touch but­tons for power, menu and other ad­just­ments. You have two HDMI ports, but the lack of a USB port is a bit of a headache.

The IPS panel gives bet­ter view­ing an­gles than most other mon­i­tors. You can set it for dif­fer­ent modes like video and gam­ing or tweak the set­ting minutely to just the way you want it. We mir­rored a Win­dows 8 lap­top to see the Ful­lHD screen qual­ity and were quite im­pressed. Play­ing a Ful­lHD movie was also im­pres­sive. The panel comes with speak­ers, but they are not re­ally up to the mark. The re­deem­ing fac­tor here is that you have a 3.5mm jack.

For the ex­tra real es­tate, spec­tac­u­lar de­sign and good pic­ture qual­ity you have to pay a bit of a pre­mium though. This model is priced a bit more than other sim­ple de­sign mon­i­tors.
