AOC Envision 861-series of compact flatscreens

AOC have shown us their big displays, now they’re trying to persuade us that smaller can be just as impressive.  Their latest Envision 861-series comes in three sizes – 19, 26 and 32-inches – are have resolutions apparently “tailored for optimum viewing with limited space”.  The smallest comes in at 1440 x 900 while the larger two manage 1366 x768; not really true HD, despite the ‘HDTV’ tag, as most consumers would expect it (e.g. 1080p).


According to the press release, “for about the price of one large screen HDTV that’s probably too large for any room in your home, you can buy three and create your own Urban Living HD Video Suite.”  Each has at one HDMI input (two on the 32-inch model), a PC input with audio, digital ATSC and Clear QAM tuners, and a swivel base.

What’s perhaps the smallest is the price, though.  Just $299 for the 19-inch L19W861, rising to $499 for the 26-inch L26W861 and finally $599 for the 32-inch L32W861. The sets should be available now.
