A Closer Look
The AOC 27P2C may not be the most expensive monitor I’ve ever had in the office, but it certainly does look great! It’s got a smart design to it that’s sure to look great in the office, but it certainly won’t look out of place at home either.
There’s a slim bezel on the left, right and top, so if you did want to run a couple of these side-by-side, it’s well suited to the job.
There’s a thicker bezel at the bottom. However, even that one is pretty slender, really. It has a gorgeous brushed aluminium look to it, too, giving it a bit more prestige.
There’s a basic set of controls here, allowing you to control power, the UI, and flick through sources; handy for the KVM functionality.
The stand looks fantastic, and it doesn’t take up too much desktop space, while still providing a good level of stability.
It also has that brushed finish just like the bottom edge of the monitor, giving everything a nice uniform appearance.
The stand mounts to the monitor with a quick release at the back, so you can easily remove it should you need to. Of course, it comes with full VESA support, so if you wanted to wall mount it, put it on your own stand or an arm, you could do so.
Down the side of the monitor, you’ll find a pair of USB 3 ports, allowing you to connect pretty much anything you require.
All the display ports are slightly recessed around the back, but there’s also a second set of USB ports here and a headphone jack. You’ve also got a choice of HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB-C for connecting the display to a system.
The monitor uses a standard 3-pin connector for power. However, it also has a master power switch; you don’t see these too often on monitors!
The monitor can easily be adjusted to suit your needs, with an impressive amount of forwards/backwards tilt.
It’s also possible to rotate the monitor into a portrait mode, which is my personal format of choice for my 2nd display.
You can also easily adjust the height and a swivel angle, so really, there’s no reason why you can’t find the perfect viewing angle every time!
