AOC Razor 23 inch LED monitor review
Posted on 1-Jun-2011 17:06 by M Freitas. | Tags Filed under: Reviews.


One of my current LCD (I have two plugged into my laptop on a three monitor setup) is an old AOC model. So I was quite happy to have a new AOC Razor LED around here for a couple of months to test.

First because it uses a newer technology, and second because at 23" I'd be crazy to say no. So AOC sent me one of their AOC Razor e2343f2 series displays.

The first thing you notice is how thin this AOC Razor is. At 12.9 mm thin, it's also really light. The monitor is so thing because almost all of the components are on its base, making for a very sleak package.

The company says the mercury free LED saves up to 50% energy when compared with traditional non-LED displays.

All key controls are situated on the base and touch sensitive. They are kept dark until you touch them. The whole design, including the base being a VESA wall mount is really well done.

I got the AOC Razor e2343f2 out of the box and had no problem connecting to my laptop. It actually comes with two HDMI and one analog inputs. It worked really well with Windows 7, and I didn't have to get the CD out of the box. The necessary driver was installed automatically by Windows as soon as I plugged the monitor for the first time.

With a 1920x1080 resolution (60Hz) you are sure to have plenty of space to work on. And space I had. The best thing on this display is how easy it is to work. For example I used it extensively while working on a couple of Microsoft Word documents, and having two full pages side-by-side on the same screen is incredibly productive.





The low response time of 2ms also helped with games, although I felt like having to be "just right" in front of the monitor to prevent some colour changes.

Pros
- plenty of space for work and play
- ultra thin display won't use much space
- multiple digital inputs
- clean design with no visible buttons

Cons
- because it's so large, balance is something you have to pay attention to when positioning the display
