AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the AOC 16" class USB-C Monitor (I1601FWUX), with ultra-slim IPS panel for extreme portability. 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. It is available now at Amazon for $199 (MSRP).

Designed with a piano-black glossy finish, this USB-C monitor has a 15.6" 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. At 15.6 inches and about 1.81lbs, the monitor is extremely portable. Its small form factor makes it perfect for business presentations, travelling or dual-monitor setups on-the-go. It easily fits into a backpack or its own included carrying case.



USB Type-C technology allows for bi-directional power and reversible plug orientation since both ends of the cable are the same. Additionally, it can plug in "upside down" since it will work any way you plug it in.

The 16" USB Monitor with its foldable flexi-stand is perfect for viewing in landscape or portrait mode. Landscape mode is ideal for presentations and spreadsheets, while the Portrait mode conveniently gives you an easy vertical view of your instant messaging programs, infographics, or search results. This monitor has a unique auto-pivot feature that automatically adjusts the image according to the display's orientation, so you will never have to change settings as you switch between landscape and portrait mode.

This is a laptop-sized display for a desktop PC. Who's going to buy this? Maybe someone who killed their laptop screen and has a type C connector? I don't see them selling many of these, but I like that it needs no power brick.

Someone like me for instance would buy this!
I'm a PLC programmer and I'm always on the move and more often then not I need to have at least one VM open on my laptop plus whatever I'm using to program that day and probably some excel files and stuff.
An extra screen to plug in the laptop when I'm around would be great because switching from one program to the other is painful if like me you need to keep an eye on two things ad the same time...
Now if my laptop actually had a usb-c port that would be so awesome but my Lenovo Y50-70 is a bit old now...

AOC has sold plenty of there USB monitor previously. I bought a few of them, being on 1366x768 and TN was ok.
This is an improvement having 1920x1080 IPS.
Perfect for anyone with laptop that needs extra screen for work.

Phone and tablet users? Extra portable screens for your laptop? Medical? There are tons of places that can benefit from a small portable/moviable monitor, and then some that will benefit from Type C connectivity.
Also, it's only 8W panel, and looking at the spec I can safely guess that it may be bus-powered (Power Source: PC USB 5V). And that kickstand is also a display cover, just like on tablets (but bigger).

I may be a bit old fashioned, but trying to do productive work on a laptop is sub-optimal at best, and highly annoying at worst, to me at least.

We use a bunch of Asus USB monitors for our EEG machines at our practice and when we visit in-patients. It allows patients to view the EEG specific content while we monitor their waves on the laptop screen.

I think many feel this way, but at least with a secondary display it gets a lot more pleasant on the go. I primarily work at a stationary setup with 2 x 27" monitors on my regular desk, but having my Asus MB168B+ with me when I have to sit elsewhere makes me way more productive than with just one screen.

Good. But i think they need add dual-connection at least. For example USB-C and Thunderbolt. And 13'3 variation. :)

I just wish they wouldn't have put the HUGE branding in white.

Black permanent marker or black gaffer/electrical tape works wonders

Yep, but if you have to do it, you might as well have 2 screens.

Great with a NUC or gigabyte BRIX if you deploy a bunch of them headless, which I do.
Absolutely! I have 2 NUCs and this screen + small portable keyboard gives me a "mobile desktop".
