West Michigan Guy 10/31/2017 7:04:25 AM

Pros: Compact
Lightweight
Plug-N-Play

Cons: Needed a Driver to work. Contacted AOC and they helped me get the Driver. Once I had it installed the monitor worked great! Nothing in the box indicated the Driver was missing. The monitor just would not illuminate. Now that I have the Driver, the monitor works great every time!

Overall Review: I would recommend this to others.

Great with DisplayLink Drivers 12/30/2016 11:17:37 AM

Pros: Plug and play, handy little monitor. Worked great with my MacBook Air after installing the latest DisplayLink drivers.

Cons: Drivers seem to be a consistent problem. If I knew to go to the DisplayLink website first, this would have been hassle-free.

Overall Review: I learned about DisplayLink through this driver adventure. They support a lot of interesting products. I also noticed they have ChromeBook drivers. I personally would not count on this working on a machine with less than 4GB of RAM. It almost worked on my Kangaroo PC with 2GB, I even tried supplemental power. I knew that would be experimental. I love it with the MacBook Air though.

Awesome second monitor for your laptop. 8/25/2016 5:54:28 AM

Pros: -Plugs in, installed drivers automatically, ready to go in 5 minutes.
-Comes with a neoprene case.
-Great idea for increasing your productivity on your laptop when you're on the road.

Cons: -Don't expect to reasonably game or watch videos on this thing.

Overall Review: Great product, reasonable price. It's a 16" monitor. It doesn't replace a desktop monitor (They're better for media and gaming) but if you do a lot of work, programming, email, surfing on your laptop and NEED that second screen, this is the answer.
If your laptop bag fits a 15.6" laptop, this should fit right in as well (Granted you don't have a super-thick laptop like an extreme gaming laptop or such).
Comes with the USB 3.0 cable, a carrying case, drivers on a cd (Didn't need them, plugged in, installed automatically).
At 99.00, I would buy a second or third if I needed to.
Two Thumbs up + 5 eggs!

AOC e1659Fwu Black 16" 8ms USB3.0 Powered WLED Backlit Widescreen Ultra Slim LCD Monitor, 200 cd/m2 500:1 w/carry Case, VESA Mountable 7/12/2016 9:09:39 AM

Pros: I have bought in the neighborhood of 100 of these. Starting with the older version the 1649. These have come a LONG way from where they used to be.

Super light
Comes with a case
Typically very easy to install, definitely plug and play.
Fits in most 15.6 bags
All of my users are road warriors. These get bumped and banged around a lot. I do replace them from time to time, because of abuse or loose connection.

@ $100...you can't beat it. I have tried others, this one is far superior than the others I have tried.

Cons: USB 3.0 connection on the monitor side could use some beefing up. I don't like the USB 3.0 connector on that side anyways, smaller is not always better.

I do replace them because of this issue.

Sometimes I have to update the USB drivers on a laptop to get it to work and sometimes I have to go out to displaylink's website to get the newest drivers. But that doesn't happen to often.

Overall Review: If you are looking for more screen real estate for mobile situations, this is your product. If you are looking just to add a second monitor for your desktop, this is your product (you might need to buy a longer cable though).

If you are looking for a monitor to game on, forget about it.

All in all, I will continue to buy them until they are discontinued. I can't find a better product.

bad cable connection location 6/5/2016 12:33:33 PM

Pros: I am forced to provide "pro" to submit review.
If it had a quality usb connection, then it would perform as advertised

Cons: rear cable connects under kickstand.
This is awkward to plugin, unplug.
After three uses the connection is failing and screen flickering.
hoping I can return the faulty product to new egg, - Have premier account - first claim with New egg after 5 + years

'Twas a journey (Pretty good monitor, a hassle to get it to work) 5/23/2016 8:42:31 PM

Pros: Nice display. Bright and high quality picture. Love AOC's monitors.

Cons: However, this monitor was frustrating. The first one I got was cracked and only came in the retail packaging. No outer shell to protect it. After I paid to have it shipped back and then got my replacement, I spent nearly 6 hours trying to get it to work. This monitor takes a lot to get it up and running. The viewing angle is pretty bad, but if you put in in a nice spot where it doesn't look bad, it's fine and looks awesome.

Overall Review: What happened was I would plug it in, the AOC logo would appear then disappear and the drivers would try to install and fail, leaving the screen blank. If you ever run this or any trouble trying to get it to work, do this:

Update your USB 3.0 controller to its latest driver version
Get the latest release of displaylink, (Right now it's version 7.9 M7) and when reinstalling drivers if you have any issues, use the displaylink install cleaner
Go to device manager and manually uninstall the drivers there if you are having the disappearing logo-blank screen-drivers failed to install issue and pray that it works

What happened to me is I reinstalled displaylink multiple times until I finally uninstalled the driver from device manager and it randomly started working. Yes. It happened by accident. I uninstalled the drivers there, then it started installing the correct drivers and turned itself on.

Junk 2/16/2016 2:45:25 PM

Pros: The picture is great when you can get one.

Cons: Does not work properly with Windows 10 unless I just happened to get a lemon. Downloaded the updated driver. Works sometimes, not other. Wanted to return to seller who was unresponsive.
