HOW TO BUY THE RIGHT MONITOR
AOC sales manager Erik Kab gives his tips.
W
ith the plethora of
MacBooks, notebooks,
netbooks, traditional
desktops and even tiny PCs that were
given out over Christmas to loved
ones and others, it’s an ideal time to
pick a new monitor that will enhance
the additions to your digital stable.
It may be true that nothing comes
close to the ultra-portability of a new
MacBook Air, however when paired
up with a gorgeous 23in AOC IPS
monitor it’s easy to appreciate that
sometimes the extra screen realestate and resolution of a big monitor
really is essential.
Today I’ll briefly cover five simple
but important things you should
know upfront when buying your next
monitor, and hopefully your next
monitor purchase will be your best!
suited to graphics pros and design
shops. The important thing to know
is that your Mac is also ready-to-go
hooked up to any monitor, be it PC,
Mac or even your big-screen TV!
All we need is a little box called a
Mini DisplayPort to a �something else’
adaptor. Primarily we are interested
in HDMI, DVI and, to a lesser extent
nowadays, analogue VGA adaptors.
A quick trip to your local Apple
store or even a well-stocked PC
reseller should reveal lots of small,
simple and cheap adaptors that will
turn your Mac’s Mini DisplayPort into
almost any video port you may need.
Expect to pay $25 to $45. Armed
with our trusty adaptor, we’re ready to
buy our new monitor, but which one ?
BUT FIRST, MAC…
MEET ADAPTOR
More than likely your Apple Computer
only has a Mini DisplayPort video-out
connector to hook up to an external
monitor. Fear not!
Although you can get a monitor
with a native Mini DisplayPort
connector like Apple’s 27in IPS
Cinema Display, at $1299 it’s more
LED MONITORS?
THIN IS IN
That’s an easy one …LED monitors
use less power, don’t have to wait
ages to warm up to display at
full brightness, don’t pollute the
environment with Mercury and, as
they become more widespread, will
not cost any more than the previous
generation of non-LED monitors.
LED monitors also unlock the
way to new ultra-thin designs. This
year you’ll start to see many very
thin monitors coming out. AOC’s
own stunning ultra-thin Razor LED
monitors are already available and
currently hold the title of world’s
thinnest at an incredible 12mm. (The
iPhone 4 is just over 9mm.)

Note that when people say �LED
monitors’ they are referring to the LED
backlight – the source of pure white
light that a monitor needs to display
different colours. An LED monitor is
still an LCD monitor – however, as we
shall now see, not all LCD monitors
are created equal.
ACRONYM VALLEY –
IPS, VA & TN
It’s hard enough to choose the right
monitor as it is without having to also
dive into which panel manufacturing
technology produces the best LCD
monitors.
However, as long as you can
remember a few basic rules, I
promise you’ll get it right every time.
I won’t bore you with what the
acronyms stand for or even why one
is better than another. Wikipedia is an
excellent source for that.
It is, however, quite accurate to
state that;
IPS wins every time. You just can’t
beat the awesome truer colours and
perfect views from almost any angle
that IPS technology panels can deliver.
It’s no accident Apple is putting IPS
panels into more and more of its
displays – not only monitors but now
iPad, iPhone 4 and iMac.
If you find a nice IPS monitor grab
it, generally they cost more but not
so much these days. An AOC 23in
IPS monitor is widely available for well
under $300, and right out of the box
puts to shame any monitor that dares
show up not bearing an IPS panel.
TN panels are fast. IPS panels
do have one small disadvantage,
though, and that is response time –
the time it takes the individual cells in
a panel to change to another colour.
IPS monitors are a little slower
than your average TN-type panel,
but again not by much these days,
generally a couple of milliseconds.
But if you do notice LCD �ghosting’
or flicker go for a fast 2-millisecond
