AOC Aire Black LED Displays just 12.7mm thick

AOC has outed its latest LCD display, the AOC Aire Black LED, a mere 12.7mm thick despite offering up to 23-inches of picture. The 20-inch e2043Fk, 22-inch e2243Fwk and 23-inch e2343Fk all have a 5ms response time and nebulous 50,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

Inputs include DVI-D with HDCP support, and there's Screen+ software onboard – the big differentiator between these three and the previous Aire range – to split the display up into four individual, easily-managed desktops. Power consumption is said to be a miserly 15W in use and 0.1W in standby.

The three new AOCs are available now, priced at $129 for the 20-inch e2043Fk, $149 for the 22-inch e2243Fwk and $179 for the 23-inch e2343Fk.

AOC Launches the Ultra-Slim Aire Black LED Monitor

New addition to the AireLED Series includes 12.7 mm-thin monitors with embedded Screen+ Feature and DVI-D with HDCP input

Fremont, Calif. – February 23, 2011– AOC, the world's largest manufacturer of LCD/LED Monitors and HDTVs, reveals the Aire Black LED, a glossy piano-black monitor featuring one of the world's slimmest display panels. This new all-black addition to the popular AireLED Series offers bonus features like embedded Screen+ software that allows the user to divide the screen into four self-contained work areas. The Aire Black LED monitor comes in 20-inch (e2043Fk, $129), 22-inch (e2243Fwk, $149) and 23-inch (e2343Fk, $179) screen sizes, and is now available at national retailers including Best Buy, Radio Shack, Office Max, Fry's, TigerDirect/CompUSA and PC Richards, among others.

The sleek widescreen Aire Black LED Monitor is one of the slimmest display panels on the market at 12.7 mm throughout. The monitor also offers impressive image quality with a 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 5ms response time, and a DVI-D with HDCP input for the ultimate HD viewing experience. Along with being EPEAT Gold Certified for its green packaging and production, the Aire Black LED Monitor on average consumes only 15 watts of energy and includes an eSaver feature that lets the user preset power conservation modes for the display when the PC is not in use. The monitor's Power Saving Mode uses 50 percent less power, and Standby Mode uses only 0.1w.

"A clean and modern aesthetic coupled with amazing image quality have made the AireLED Series one of our most popular monitor lines for both business and home use," said Robert Velez, AOC Marketing Manager. "The Aire Black LED display reduces energy costs and offers incredible value, which is a trademark of the AOC brand and products."

The versatile Aire Black LED Monitor has a built-in VESA stand that locks into place so that the monitor can be used on a desktop and easily mounted on a wall by simply pushing a button and folding the stand at its tilt hinge. No assembly is required for the stand, making the monitor a helpful solution for businesses that require visual displays but have limited space. The monitor's easily accessible connections are located at the back of the stand, while its front features convenient LED touch controls for power and onscreen display.
