TAIWANESE DISPLAY MAKER AOC has gone for functionality over looks with its i2352Vh display and has done a good job of it too. The monitor allows access to in-plane switching (IPS) technology without a big price tag.

AOC i2352Vh Monitor

The AOC 23in i2352Vh monitor isn't going to blow anyone's socks off when it comes to looks, but it's clearly one of the ways AOC has kept the price down. The stand and casing are made from matte black plastic. However, it has a fairly slim profile and rounded edges, so it doesn't look ugly.

We found it easy to set up the monitor simply by slotting the display into the base stand with a connecting piece. A bonus for setup is that the power supply is internal, so there's no annoying bulky in-line power brick to contend with.

Due to the simple, cost cutting design there's little adjustment available. The display tilts backwards and forwards a reasonable amount but doesn't offer height, pivot or swivel movement.

The stand is short, meaning that the bottom of the screen is only a few inches above the desktop, so it's likely that you will end up looking slightly down at the screen. A secondary monitor stand might be in order, or alternatively there is a VESA mount so you can attach it to a wall with brackets.

AOC i2352Vh Monitor Ports

Connectivity is well rounded with rear facing ports for easy access. AOC has equipped the i2352Vh monitor with VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs. The monitor comes supplied with power, VGA and HDMI cables.

There's also a 3.5mm audio jack input along with a cable for the built-in speakers. These are of a minimal quality, however, there is a handy audio out port for headphones or dedicated speakers.
