AOC unveils I1601FWUX 16-inch USB-C portable monitor for macOS and Windows
While some people spend their days working at the same location, for many others, their office can be anywhere. It is not uncommon to see people laboring away on a laptop while in their cars, coffee shops, or in a field sitting under a tree.
Unfortunately, this often means working with only one display -- having multiple monitors can be a huge boon for productivity. With that said, there are portable monitors on the market that offer a multi-screen experience when on the go. Today, AOC unveils a beautiful new lightweight (1.81 pounds) 16-inch (technically 15.6) variant that connects via USB-C for both power and video.
"The USB-C monitor is slim and lightweight to be easily used on-the-go. The widescreen monitor receives both power and signal via a single USB-C cable for plug-and-play connectivity. It does not require a dedicated power cord or VGA cable, and comes with a foldable flexi-stand for maximum flexibility. This makes it perfect for accountants working at a client’s office or a road warrior working from his hotel room," says AOC.
The company further says, "Designed with a piano-black glossy finish, this USB-C monitor has a 15.6-inch display with a 700:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time and a full HD resolution at 60Hz. The IPS panel provides wide viewing angles and has better color uniformity than TN panels. The USB-C monitor also utilizes AOC’s LowBlue Mode. Through the software, the monitor decreases harmful blue light by controlling color temperature while keeping the vivid color."
