Best Review of AOC e2050Swd 20 Inch Class Screen LED Lit Monitor 1600 x 900 Resolution 5ms 20M 1DCR
AOC e2050Swd 20-Inch Class Screen LED-Lit Monitor Review

3 Reasons For

Good Owner Reviews

On average, people who bought this LCD screen rated it as 86 out of 100.

AOC Has Excellent Reviews for Its PC Screens

Medium monitors produced by AOC have excellent reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PC monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that AOC also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Narrow

The width of the AOC E2050 of only 361 millimeters is one of the narrowest amongst medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the E2050. Across all the medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the E2050 the widths range from 50mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.

If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might also want to look at the Benq GW2260[plb_1436727_price] (397mm).

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the E2050, the AOC E2050 does not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq GL2250[plb_1453597_price], or the Hanns.G HE225DPB[plb_1755964_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The AOC E2050 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that came out more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to the E2050 do not have a built-in camera. The AOC E2050 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC monitors that were launched more than two years ago do not have an integrated card reader. The AOC E2050 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle

The AOC E2050 has a very narrow vertical viewing angle (only 50 degrees) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec. The narrowest vertical viewing angle of PC screens of a comparable age and type to the E2050 is 50° and the widest is 180°.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle

The horizontal viewing angles of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the E2050 range from 60° to 180°. With a horizontal viewing angle of only 90 degrees, the AOC E2050 has one of the narrowest horizontal viewing angles amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Display Brightness

The display brightness of PC screens that have been around for more than two years range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m². The display brightness of the AOC E2050 of only 200 candellas per square meter is one of the dimmest amongst LCD screens that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 6.2 kilograms, the AOC E2050 is one of the heavier medium monitors that were released more than two years ago amongst medium monitors of this age. The lightest medium monitor that has been available for a comparable time to the E2050 is 3g weight and the heaviest is 39kg.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the AOC E2050

Released Over Two Years Ago

AOC released the E2050 over two years ago.

LCD Display Type

The AOC E2050 has an LCD display type which is better than most PC screens of this type and age. Most medium monitors that are a comparable age to it have an LED display type.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display to this PC monitor and we think the HP Compaq LA2306[plb_1563132_price] which is cheaper; or the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the Asus VE228[plb_1584525_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.
