AOC unveils new 27-inch 1080p monitor with Qi wireless charging' By: Jay Decenella

AOC has introduced a new 27-inch PLS display that features a Qi wireless charging base to  spare consumers from tangles of charging cables.

Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi is one of the most popular standards for wireless charging right now. With this innovation, the AOC P2779VC is expected to rise above its competitors in an already saturated market for 1080p monitors.

The Qi wireless charging component allows users to juice up their mobile phone by placing it on the panel’s base without the need for a wire. However, the wireless charging technology is compatible only with a select number of smartphones, including the Nokia Lumia 920-1520, Samsung Galaxy S5-6/Edge, Google Nexus 4-7, and Motorola Droid Maxx.

Key Specifications

Another distinguishing feature of the AOC P2779VC is its Full HD 1920 x 1080p display that uses a PLS panel with 178-degree viewing angles and 8-bit color depth that AOC says produces accurate colors. PLS technology is a relatively new panel system initially developed by Samsung for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Although the technology does not deviate by a huge margin from older IPS technology, it’s arguably better in terms of viewing angles, image quality, and brightness.

The display maker also showed off the new monitor’s anti-glare coating that prevents fingerprints and other unsightly elements from leaving marks on the screen. The AOC P2779VC incorporates two HDMI ports, a VGA connector, and an audio jack for headphones. Its sleek design packs slim bezels as well. The monitor also has a Kensington security slot to fasten the display to the desk where it sits.

Other key specs of AOC P2779VC include a 16:9 aspect ratio, universal 110~240VAC and 50/60Hz power source, AOC’s e-Saver and i-Menu software, a 300cd/m2 brightness, and a 20 million-to-1 dynamic contrast ratio, with a 5ms response time capable of eliminating drag, though not receptive enough for gaming.

The monitor will be available to purchase next month for $249 via Best Buy and NewEgg, though it’s currently up for pre-order at Amazon for $199.99.
