Space to roam
AOC’s new 15.6-inch portable USB-C monitor comes with a smart cover that doubles as a stand. A built-in auto pivot enables users to switch easily between portrait and landscape modes. The IPS display is ideal for expanding available screen space or for presenting to small groups. Being just 8.5mm thick and needing just one cable for both power and DisplayPort signal, the I1601FWUX (£199) fts easily into most laptop bags. Notable features include a 160/160° viewing angle; a Low Blue Light mode, which reduces potentially harmful blue light and prevents eye fatigue; and a pixel response time of 5 ms GtG for smooth, smear-free action scenes or fast-paced games.
