Not to be outdone by ViewSonic's recent introduction of the 27-inch VX2770Smh-LED display, AOC's coming out with a large IPS monitor of its own. The i2757fh is being touted as a "borderless" panel, and the reason behind that claim is its slim 2mm bezel. Aside from those narrow characteristics, AOC's new 27-inch monitor also boasts a decent 1920 x 1080 resolution with 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 5ms response time, two HDMI ports and, naturally, the great viewing angles you get with an IPS unit. As far as pricing goes, AOC's slapping a not-too-shabby $349 tag on the i2757fh, but there is a Best Buy-only deal which knocks 50 bucks off of the original MSRP. Hit the break for an additional angled shot as well as official PR.
AOC Announces Borderless 27" IPS Monitor; Now Available at Retailers Nationwide
AOC's ultra-slim i2757fh HD monitor features a borderless appearance ideal for multiple monitor setups
Fremont, Calif. – October 2, 2012 – AOC, the leader in monitor display technology, announces the retail availability of the i2757fh, a 27-inch IPS display with a 2 mm bezel that gives the monitor a sleek, borderless appearance. The monitor's widescreen IPS (in plane switching) panel also allows for more consistent, uniform color from all viewing angles, delivering amazingly sharp image quality. An iF Product Design Award winner, the monitor delivers uncompromising display technology coupled with an artistic design that features a metallic hook-shaped stand that allows for three different modes of viewing – as a photo frame without a base, as a standard function stand, and as a height-adjustable stand that detaches with the push of a button. The AOC 27-inch IPS Monitor is now available for $349 MSRP. AOC also offers the i2757fh at Bestbuy.com and the retailer's top 250 stores for a special price of $299.99.
"The i2757fh model, part of AOC's 57 Series, combines an anti-glare IPS screen with a narrow bezel so that images seem to float without a distracting frame," said Chris Brown, AOC Marketing Manager. "The monitor's IPS technology and award-winning design deliver an unparalleled display experience to consumers."
Designed to meet high environmental and technical standards, the i2757fh is made of eco-friendly materials such as arsenic-free glass and mercury-free panels. Also, the LED backlight panel requires 50 percent less energy than typical CCFL monitors. The i2757fh can display 16.7 million colors, while its 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio provides accurate color reproduction when displaying images with extreme differences between light and dark. The monitor also features ultrafast performance with a 5 ms response time, which allows pixels to change colors quickly to avoid streaking, blurring and ghosting in fast-moving scenes and video games. The monitor's dual HDMI ports support the latest DVD and Blu-ray players or gaming consoles, and it can also be connected to desktops or notebooks via VGA cable. Direct insert connectors face the rear, making it easier to connect the monitor to power and input sources.
The monitor also includes built-in speakers for optimal desktop sound, and the multifunctional, detachable stand allowing for standard monitor or "photo frame" placement. Other bonus features include an Off Timer that shuts down the monitor automatically if desired, Screen+ software that divides the screen into four self-contained work areas for improved productivity, and Eco Mode, which enables the user to select five different optimized display settings (Text, Internet, Game, Movie and Sport).
