AOC i2460Pxqu Panel
The screen is 54x36x1.5cm the latter at the edges. It sits on a 23cm circular base which raises the screen on a telescopic arm between 2 and 15cm.
The viewable screen is 51x32cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 24inches.
There is a protruding lip on the rear about 7cm above the base of the screen and this has all the possible connections pointing down so nothing extends outwards and everything is retained within the units dimensions.
On the right of the telescopic arm are two USB ports and USB upstream connection, the mains input and an on/off rocker. To the left of the telescopic arm are Display Port, HDMI, Digital, VGA and two 3.5mm sockets the first an input for sound and the second headphone output.
On the front bottom edge towards the right are the screens controls, four rectangular buttons a small gap and then nearest the edge a fifth button screen on/off and in most cases the only one you will need in day to day use.
There are two further USB ports on the right edge of the screen.
This unit has technology to adjust the screens brightness and contrast to suit the ambient light AOC call it i-Care which with its soothing effect on the eyes could be called ‘eye care’.
There is a small amount of forward tilt and around four times as much back tilt. No side to side movement is provided but as the screen on the base is not heavy it is easy to rotate when required. The stated viewing angle is 178 degrees.
When you first turn on you should immediately notice that bit more depth to the screen as it is 16:10 and displays 1920x1200 as opposed to the normal 1920x1080.
People are getting very power consumption conscious these days it uses 22watts in use, 1watt in standby and .5watt off unless you pull the plug when of course it uses nothing.
In use this was a joy, I tried all four connections with a range of PCs and all produced a perfect image without recourse to the settings buttons.
Probably because of the i-Care it never seemed hard on the eyes in poor light or bright lighting conditions.
I felt it my duty to view a DVD or three and even those with the modern idea of very dark modes were watchable without adjustment.
It is described as both a business and home unit. Getting that extra depth in the screen is very nice to enable more to be seen without scrolling but of course that comes with a price premium.
The AOC i2460Pxqu is available from the first link below for £246.87 with free delivery.
