AOC e1649Fwu 15.6-inch Portable USB Monitor Review

AOC’s affordable and portable 15-inch e1649Fwu monitor works using USB power, but its viewing angles could be better.

3.5 stars
(3.5 out of 5)

The latest in a new class of peripherals, the AOC e1649Fwu 15.6-inch portable monitor is geared toward business travelers looking to add an extra screen without overstuffing their bags. Unlike full-fledged displays that connect to notebooks via HDMI or VGA and then to the wall for power, the AOC monitor plugs in via USB, meaning you don’t have to lug a bulky AC adapter. At $139, this 15.6-inch monitor is the largest and most affordable portable display yet, but how does it stack up to other mobile monitors?
