Who would have thought years ago that we’d have monitors without all those bulky power plugs and cables? Those days are being thrown out the window as DisplayLink has been releasing HD Displays powered only by a single USB cable. This one they were working with AOC to bring you a 22″ model for us. I can see this working for multiple uses such as small presentations, party functions, etc. or if your the big multitasker like me you might need dual monitors next to each other to complete your tasks. Again, all this is powered by your MAC/PC devices.



  • 22-inch full HD monitor
  • Ultra-thin at 10.6 millimeters
  • Resolution of 1920×1080 (HD)
  • 5ms response time
  • Plug-and-Play and USB 2.0 bus powered display

  • Supported on all leading operating systems including Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7 & Apple MAC OSX Tiger / Leopard and Lion

Also enabled by DisplayLink USB graphics technology, this 16-inch monitor has a built-in Smart Stand that pivots when needed, and offers 1366 x 786 resolution.
