11 Reasons For

Good User Reviews

On average, people who bought this PC screen rated it as 80%.

Excellent Brand

On average AOC small monitors have excellent reviews as do all LCD screens produced by AOC.

Good Picture Quality

A number of AOC E970 reviewers considered that the AOC E970 had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

Three AOC E970 owners said in their reviews that the product was good quality. Anna Graham said “That was the only thing about the monitor that was of half decent quality” in her review of the AOC E970 but despite that she only gave the AOC E970 a score of 40 out of 100. Paul Pelosi said in October last year “Picture quality is good”. Paul Pelosi also mentioned “Slightly off to one side and the picture quality degrades quickly”.

Robust

One AOC E970 reviewer said in their reviews that this PC monitor was strong and durable. Two years ago Anna Graham said on Amazon “The stand was sturdy”.

Good Size

One AOC E970 owner thought it was thin. Paul Pelosi mentioned on Amazon “The viewing angle is rather narrow” in his review of the AOC E970 but in spite of that he gave it a score of 3 stars.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many small monitors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other PC displays that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Acer V196HQL which has better reviews; or the DELL E1913 which is cheaper are also worth considering.
