Here we have a brand called AOC, something we have not reviewed in the recent past, but has gained quite a bit of popularity in our market since we last checked it out. Today in the spotlight is their 22 inch offering, called the AOC 2230Fm, also known as the Rivio; replete with lots of multimedia features and all that bebop. So let’s check it out.
Design and features
The frame slips onto a sturdy round stand, quite easily at that, thus facilitating easy physical set up. But unfortunately the joint is not so sturdy, the monitor wobbles at the slightest flick. Connection-wise this monitor has plenty, because one of the main USPs is the fact that this model sports direct playback of SD movies, JPEGs and MP3s from a USB drive. It has HDMI, DVI-D, VGA, Audio In, Headphone out and 4 USB ins, with one USB A – B wire included. Speakers give out 2 watts RMS. It also has a Memory card slot. I have to give the AOC some points here for including all the multimedia features, it’s rare in monitors.
As for rated specs, they seem high too, with 2 ms response time, 300 Cd/m2 brightness, 20000:1 dynamic contrast and viewing angle of 170/160 degrees. The resolution is not full HD though, it's 1680 by 1050, so the 16:10 curse for moviebuffs and videophiles is there. For gamers of course it’s not an issue. The panel is assumed to be TN.
