Under the family name “myDisplay”, monitor specialist AOC has recently launched a number of particularly innovative, top-notch display products. Now, the company introduces the two latest Style Line members of its showpiece product range.
The myUltraSpeed, a 24″ (61 cm) Full HD model working at the stunning picture refresh rate of 144 Hz mainly targeted at gamers. The new 15.6″ (39.6 cm) ultra-mobile myConnect on the other hand sets out to make notebook users’ lives easier with its plug-and-play USB connectivity by instantly extending desktop real estate.
Extreme speed for the demanding
The myUltraSpeed has been developed by AOC in cooperation with professional gamers. It leaves nothing to wish for even during demanding applications such as competitive first-person shooting games. Equipped with a state-of-the-art LED-backlit TN panel, the myUltraSpeed (the model is also listed as g2460Pqu) delivers crisp images without compromises. Its 144 Hz refresh rate more than doubles the frames per second rate of conventional LCDs.
The ultra-short pixel response time of one millisecond only also stands for blur-free images. The Full HD model displays signals via a full set of connectors (VGA, dual link DVI, HDCP-compatible HDMI as well as a DisplayPort). For a new level of user-friendliness, AOC decks out the myUltraSpeed with an integrated USB hub with 4 connectors, including a fast-charge USB port for mobile devices, a headphone output and speakers. In addition, the monitor is ergonomically fully flexible, offering height adjustment, tilt, swivel and pivot (portrait mode) function.
The g2460Pqu is currently available in an attractive bundle with a free copy of the action-packed online first person shooter “Shootmania”. The advantages when gaming with a higher refresh rate have recently been developed in a large case study by the Dutch experts from hardware.info. The myUltraSpeed will also be presented in numerous gaming events such as the i49 in UK or the GameX in Turkey.

Take away desktop real estate
The myConnect concept has already led to a USB-powered monitor before. Now, AOC has come up with an extremely versatile monitor targeted at users of netbooks, notebooks or other portable computers. Thanks to the DisplayLink technology utilised, a single USB 3.0 cable connects the ultra-slim (0.09″ / 22.9 mm) WXGA model with a notebook, for instance, providing mobile users with a dual monitor set-up in an instant. The Style Line monitor is not only supplied with video signals via the USB cable, but also with power. This is made possible by the display’s extremely low power consumption of less than 7 Watts. The myConnect (model name e1659Fwu) thus instantly increases the desktop space by its screen diagonal of 15.6” (39.6 cm). For even more convenience, the monitor stand can be rotated, so the monitor easily rotates from landscape to portrait orientation (pivot) – useful for desk presentations, document viewing, texts or mail clients.
With the Smart Auto Pivot function, the content displayed will automatically be rotated as well. The myConnect comes with intelligent software that eases the control of brightness, contrast and power settings. Thanks to the USB connectivity, it is possible to hook up no less than six USB displays – allowing for an unprecedented level of multi-tasking for notebook users.
For ease of transport and for safe keeping of this ultra-portable lightweight display, a soft sleeve is included in the delivery.
As with all other monitors of its range, AOC offers a 3-year carry in warranty on the myDisplay models.
AOC myUltra-Speed and myConnect will be unveiled at Gitex – AOC can be found at stand D30 at Sheikh Saeed Hall, Dubai World Trade Center, Dubai, UAE.
