2 out of 5 eggs'Twas a journey (Pretty good monitor, a hassle to get it to work)

Pros: Nice display. Bright and high quality picture. Love AOC's monitors.

Cons: However, this monitor was frustrating. The first one I got was cracked and only came in the retail packaging. No outer shell to protect it. After I paid to have it shipped back and then got my replacement, I spent nearly 6 hours trying to get it to work. This monitor takes a lot to get it up and running. The viewing angle is pretty bad, but if you put in in a nice spot where it doesn't look bad, it's fine and looks awesome.

Other Thoughts: What happened was I would plug it in, the AOC logo would appear then disappear and the drivers would try to install and fail, leaving the screen blank. If you ever run this or any trouble trying to get it to work, do this:

Update your USB 3.0 controller to its latest driver version
Get the latest release of displaylink, (Right now it's version 7.9 M7) and when reinstalling drivers if you have any issues, use the displaylink install cleaner
Go to device manager and manually uninstall the drivers there if you are having the disappearing logo-blank screen-drivers failed to install issue and pray that it works

What happened to me is I reinstalled displaylink multiple times until I finally uninstalled the driver from device manager and it randomly started working. Yes. It happened by accident. I uninstalled the drivers there, then it started installing the correct drivers and turned itself on.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: The picture is great when you can get one.

Cons: Does not work properly with Windows 10 unless I just happened to get a lemon. Downloaded the updated driver. Works sometimes, not other. Wanted to return to seller who was unresponsive.

5 out of 5 eggsTravel case

Pros: Convenient, good resolution, has been flawless since installation

Cons: I wish it was a little bigger

Other Thoughts: I answered a question incorrectly earlier today about the carry case.
YES, it did come with a travel carry case (which I never used).
Sorry, I was thinking of a different item I had purchased.

3 out of 5 eggsNot compatible with AMD APU's

Pros: The concept is great, and it works great on my laptop. No extra plugs makes it more portable. The included carrying case makes bringing it places safer.

Cons: But the HTPC I originally bought it for that uses an APU isn't compatible with it. For some reason they just don't want to talk. Also, getting it to display properly can be a bit tricky.

Other Thoughts: Strongly considering returning this. Not sure if I will yet or not, but considering it.

5 out of 5 eggsDeveloper on The Go's Best Friend

Pros: * Very light
* 100% USB powered and Driven
* Comes with a sleeve
* Response time is perfect for development work
* Built in stand + VESA Mounts

Cons: * The saturation on the monitor is a little pale in comparison to my MACBook Pro
* No secondary input options
* The heavy duty USB cable is on the short side, but acceptable

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor for the sole purpose of being a second monitor on the go. My home office has 5,080X1920 worth of combined resolution across 3 monitors, so working on just the laptop sometimes just messed with my workflow.

I bought this monitor completely expecting it to not work, but I think it's definitely a keeper. If you compare this monitor with a $1k dedicated desktop monitor you are going to be disappointed, but if you treat this for what it is, it's awesome. It fits into my laptop bag in a separate compartment from my laptop just fine, adds a little bulk but not much weight.

Some people have complained about the stand, but I think it's just fine. It can be put into a number angles as the stand on the back is basically like a picture frame stand. Portrait mode angles are a little more aggressive, but have been just fine.

I haven't done a whole lot with my second screen except development. I usually run my terminal window or debugger on the second monitor allowing me to not have to switch desktops or windows so often.

For context, I'm a software engineer (Java, Scala, Node and all things frontend) and team leader (16 years experience).

5 out of 5 eggsGot a replacement

Pros: Got an RMA from the company and the replacement works great. So I'm posting a new review. All the cons are fixed for the most part.

Cons: The only issue I have is the display angle still, but it's still not a huge thing,

3 out of 5 eggsGood but drivers seem flawed in windows 8.1

Pros: Bright, light/portable, free carting case.

Cons: Has a weird display angle when in portrait mode. It doesn't look right when you are look at it head on you have to view it from about 6" to the left which ends up being okay for my use. Horizontal view angle is fine though. It also doesn't like being unplugged while my computer is still on. If I do so it wont turn on unless I reinstall the drivers. It also wont work if I plug it into the computer after it's already booted up. Not a super huge deal but it's a little disappointing. It might just be a Windows 8.1 thing.

Other Thoughts: Dispite the 3 eggs and the long list of cons it's still a nice piece of hardware. If they sort out the driver issues I'd give it 5 eggs.
