Marketing Information  

Detailed Design Lightweight, stylish and slim, our LCD Monitors promise sharp, detailed images, smooth motion quality, and Samsung s exclusive Touch of Color"' design. These stylish, powerful and efficient monitors improve the atmosphere of any desktop.

AOC presents its most cutting-edge design: "Razor" e2043F features an ultra slim cabinet measuring just 12.9mm thin. The sharp 20" LED panel has an Ultra-High Dynamic Contrast Ratio (DCR) of 50,000,000:1, revealing darker image areas in greater depth than ever before. The mercury (Hg) free LED backlight saves up to 50% of the energy compared with a traditional 4 CCFL screen. Power is further reduced by the "e-Saver" technology, which enables the user to set the monitor to a lower power configuration when the PC is in screen saver mode or powered off, or even if the user is simply away for a while. The illuminated touch key controls, along with graphical OSD menu icons, make monitor adjustment user-friendly. The base doubles as a unique smart wall-mount that saves space and retains a Tilt function for ergonomic viewing. e2043F is ideal for professional and home users.

The AOC 2217Pwc offers premium picture quality for graphics-intensive applications. It comes with 3000:1 contrast ratio, which delivers exceptional image clarity, and 170-degree viewing angle to provide increased visibility from side viewpoints. It's response time is 5ms, a key feature that prevents fast moving objects from becoming blurred. The AOC 2217Pwc offer consumers brilliant large screen performance at highly competitive price.
