One of my LCD panels has been slowly burning out over the last few months, so I’ve been keeping my eyes open for deals, particularly on IPS displays. Despite it not having a VESA mount, I thought I’d missed an opportunity when the $99.99 23" AOC IPS panel from the other day sold out overnight.

This one is one inch smaller. Which makes it the same size as the tightly-packed-on-my-desk panels it would be replacing. And, unlike the AOC from the other night, this one has a VESA mount.

I pulled the trigger on two.

I’m not normally given to impulse purchases like this, especially where refurbs are involved. So: Do not disappoint me, AOC…

I really wish that they shipped these to Alaska… Why don’t they?

sorry, im a complete newb, but can i connect two of these monitors to my 2013 macbook air? ideally, i’d like to have the notebook shut and have two of these screens as an extended desktop. tips?

I’m sure there is a way to do this, but the first and most obvious problem I can think of is the video output ports on your Macbook. I refuse to affiliate with Mac as a whole, but the odds of them having the two video outputs you need, especially on that bare-bones “air” of yours is slim to none.

From the specs page of the AOC 22":
Analog Input: RGB D-Sub
Digital Input: DVI-HDCP

Connectors:
Analog RGB Signal: 15-pin D-sub Male
Digital Signal: 24-pin DVI-D

To hook up any computer to these monitors, ultimately, you’ll need two video outputs. They do make adapters to convert signals like HDMI into DVI, but that tiny overpriced laptop probably doesn’t have either of these outputs, if any at all.

I hope I helped answer your question at least a little. :stuck_out_tongue:

Some quick Googling suggests such a thing is not very easy and/or cheap, due to ThunderBolt being not widely adopted.

This post is two years old, but seems to provide a still-accurate summary.

An external USB graphics card and an adapter for the “Thunderbolt” port seems like the best solution at this point. Definitely looks like a pain.

The MacBook Airs GPU only supports internal display + 1 monitor natively. The one monitor would connect via Thunderbolt (adapter you’d use would be Mini DisplayPort to DVI). It’s not designed to work with an additional, but if you get an adapter that is a video card to manage a display via USB, that should work.

I’m always a little concerned about refurb electronics…is the $16 square trade coverage a good idea?

Instead of this deal, spend $10 more (after $30 rebate) and get a brand new HP monitor and inch larger! Not sure if woot likes competitor’s links so replace the DOTs with periods…

Does anyone know if this monitor could be used in portrait mode, with a VESA stand? Thanks.

This does not have VESA at the back

I bought this monitor when it was on Woot before and I really like it. Despite “refurbished”, it looked brand new in the box but did have a “recertified” sticker on it. It’s IPS which is the best technology for image quality and viewing angle. Note that you don’t get an edge-to-edge image since the actual LCD is significantly inside of the “2mm bezel”. It does have VESA mounting holes.

That first video was a waste of time. I guess that’s what happens when you put a camera in the hands of a rapper :frowning:

Considering this one…

BOTH videos are useless. Duh, lets read the stuff on the box then open it up. A REVIEW, which require powering it on and connecting it to a computer, would be MUCH more useful. Was it the iphone peeps that started the “unboxing?” Can we change this to “unbox and then do something useful?”

Cute doggie tho…

Um, hello… From the specs panel:

Woot is good about not getting bitchy if you find a better deal and post it.
