Disappointing colour accuracy for an IPS panel, but this budget monitor looks great and has a wide range of inputs
The i2369Vm is part of AOC’s value range of monitors, but this 23in monitor looks anything but budget. The i2369Vm’s slim IPS panel is just 14mm deep and its slim matt silver stand and lower bezel look smart with its frameless display.
The i2369Vm has a wide range of connection ports, too, including VGA and DisplayPort inputs, two HDMI inputs and headphone and microphone jacks. One of the HDMI inputs supports MHL, which means you can use it to charge your smartphone while watching content from it (presuming your smartphone supports this).
We used the MHL feature with an HTC One X+, which has a 1,280×720 resolution. The phone’s display defaulted to a horizontal position that filled most of the screen, but the overall image looked jagged and pixelated. Even so, the MHL feature is a handy way of showing photos to your family and friends on a large screen.
The i2369Vm’s image quality wasn’t impressive initially, as our colour calibrator showed it was displaying just 88.4 per cent of the sRGB colour gamut at its default settings. This is quite poor for an IPS display as we normally expect to see a score of around 96 per cent. The i2369Vm had very strong yellows, but it fell short in all the other major primary colour groups.
