DisplayLink Drives AOC 22" USB Powered HD Display - Now Available in the US

DisplayLink, a leading provider of technology for virtual graphics and USB-connected computing, today announced the availability of AOC's new 22-inch High Definition USB Powered Display (model e2251Fwu). This ultra-slim yet affordable LED monitor receives both power and signal solely through USB connection and offers simple plug-and-play connectivity, making the productivity benefits of dual- and multi-monitor computing available to the masses. The e2251Fwu is equally suitable for business, gaming and entertainment use with its large high definition screen and excellent image quality.

Embedded with DisplayLink's USB 2.0 graphics and connectivity technology for real-time video compression/decompression, AOC's High Definition Powered Display is a mere 10.6 mm thick and is an energy saving "green" monitor running entirely on power delivered via a USB 2.0 cable.


AOC's 22-inch USB Monitor offers impressive image quality with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 5 ms response time. Supported on all leading operating systems, the monitor also comes with a convenient detachable stand that allows it to be used with or without the base like a picture frame.

"It seems that all users—home and business— are now living in a world that demands multi-tasking, and as such, the need for multiple screens has risen exponentially," said John Cummins, VP of sales and marketing for DisplayLink. "AOC's 22-inch High Definition USB Powered Display enables multiple monitors to be added to any desktop/notebook computer platform through the connection of a tidy and simple USB cable at an accessible price point."

Breaking Free from the Shackles of Power and Video Cables Means Less Clutter and Easy Installation

"AOC's High Definition USB Powered Display gives everyone, from road warriors to professionals in home offices and corporate headquarters, the indispensable benefit of being able to clearly see and distribute information across multiple displays," said Robert Velez, AOC Marketing Manager. "Adding the essential second and third USB monitor now means fewer cables, less clutter and easy installation. Together, AOC and DisplayLink make all of that possible in one sleek package."

Only USB 2/0 though, So it wont be able to play full 1080p HD content due to the bandwidth. thought they would have made it usb 3.0 at least

Theoretically it could be possible you only need ~30mb/s for 1080p while USB 2.0 is capable of 60 at the high end

true, but USB 2.0 is two directional. you arent going to get 60MB/s in ONE direction, which a monitor needs. its still capped to the same data limits.



the 480Mb is a marketing trick, much like wifi. they advertise the peak speeds it can do in both directions simultaneously, not what its capable of in one direction only (which this monitor would need/use)
