AOC announces new professional monitors with super-slim bezels.

A total of five new monitors has been announced by AOC for professional and business users. Ranging from 24- to 27-inch and packing in some handy features, including IPS panels, these displays are ideal for mounting to arms thanks to their three-sided frameless design. It's easy to spot the lack of bezel on not only the sides of the displays but also the top side too, making them look sleek.

As well as IPS technology to help with color and overall viewing experience, the company has included its own eye-protecting features to help reduce discomfort for those who spend long periods in front of their PC. The configuration for the new line-up includes the 24-inch I2490VXQ and I2490PXQU, and the 27-inch I2790VQ, I2790PQU, and Q2790PQU. Throwing two or more of these screens together would extend the desktop without having too much of a separation between.

The I2490VXQ and I2790VQ come with basic stands and are the more affordable options here, whereas the I2490PXQU, I2790PQU and the Q2790PQU come with an adjustable stand. The Q2790PQU is a QHD panel that supports resolutions up to 2560x1440 — all other monitors are 1080p. Lastly, multiple input ports are at hand, including DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA. As a bonus, PQU/PXQU models feature a USB 3.0 hub.
