When shopping for a new monitor, always get the Swarovski crystal model

New, 8 comments

AOC is a desktop monitor company with a reputation for making decent displays at low prices. The company’s latest Q2781 series is no exception; it’s 27-inch IPS monitor that starts at $499 with a 2560 × 1440 resolution and plenty of input methods in the form of two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, and a D-Sub port, per AnandTech’s report. Plus, its got a neat design with a funky single-arm stand. But you’re not here for the regular, boring base version. You’re here for the slightly more expensive $599 model that adds a rose gold color, leather accents, and a hefty dose of Swarovski crystals on the back.

Aside from the bedazzled appearance, the two versions are identical. And overall it looks like a decent monitor for the price, with the caveat that the screen can only tilt, and isn’t height-adjustable. AOC doesn’t seem to have a release date pinned down yet for the pair of monitors, but they should both be available soon.
