AOC Debuts Nearly Borderless Computer Monitor

AOC recently announced a brand new computer monitor that comes with a 23" panel that has been described as "virtually borderless". That description seems pretty accurate if the pictures of this monitor are anywhere near accurate. You can tell from the image above that the borders can barely be discerned around the screen, which is quite a feat if you ask me.

The new AOC monitor is known as the i2367fh, with AOC saying that it will work for normal computing needs as well as gaming. In addition to that, the company stated that the high-performance panel also uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology and has a dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000,000:1 along with an integrated HDMI port and built-in speakers.

The integrated HDMI port means that this monitor can also be used as a television, allowing you to connect any type of game console or Blu-ray player, making it a multifarious device. The bezel around the screen is also only 2mm thick. The stand is metallic and hook-shaped, allowing you to choose between two different modes of viewing.

These two viewing modes include a photo frame style without the base with the hook shaped stand functioning as a normal computer stand. The screen is also full 1,9209 x 1,080 HD and has a 5 ms response time. Moreover, the screen also supports 16.7 million colors and has a VGA input. The display is currently available for $199.

This is quite a revolution in computer monitor technology. Companies are trying harder and harder to make seemingly borderless computer monitors and AOC seems to have succeeded. I think it would be cool to watch a movie or play a game on a computer monitor with almost no border. I feel like the picture would seem to be floating, giving it a cool, futuristic vibe that would sit well with gamers and movie enthusiasts.
