With the AOC USB-C monitor series V5, the manufacturer completes its portfolio of displays. After the AOC GAMING models like the recently introduced AOC GAMING U28G2XU2, the new V5 monitors are aimed at home office users.
The AOC USB-C monitor series V5: 6 models to launch
High-quality monitors with a chic, minimalist design for the home office or students. That’s what the new AOC USB-C monitors in the V5 series promise. They rely on a slim, 3-sided borderless design and take up little space on the desk.
They also score with numerous features, such as USB-C connectivity including 65 watts of PowerDelivery. In total, the series comprises six monitors in three sizes at the start in July 2022:
In the 24-inch class (60.4 cm), the AOC 24V5C and 24V5CE therefore. In 27 inches, there’s the 27V5C, 27V5CE and Q27V5C and in 31.5 inches (80 cm) comes the Q32V5CE. They partly differ in terms of resolution. The models that start with Q offer a QHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, while the others come in Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels).
As the largest model in the series, the Q32V5CE offers a 3-sided, bezel-less 31.5-inch VA panel with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440). With a strong 3000:1 contrast ratio, it’s great for watching movies or an occasional gaming session.
It covers a large part of the user’s field of vision and requires only a small footprint, so it’s ideal for those who need a lot of screen space in a small area. The Q32V5CE’s stand allows the display to be tilted (-5/23°). Like the other models, it can also be attached to a monitor arm via the VESA mounting option.
They come with a 3-sided bezel-less design, very narrow bottom bezel and thin base (12.1 mm), via which the particularly ergonomic V5C models can swivel, tilt, rotate 90° (pivot) and adjust 130 mm in height. The V5CE models, on the other hand, offer a simpler stand including tilt function.
All models feature a 4-port USB 3.2 hub and a USB-C port with 65W Power Delivery. This makes it easy to charge tablets, smartphones and other devices with a single USB-C cable. There is also the option to mirror the display to the monitor. Access to other tools is possible via the integrated USB hub.
From a purely technical point of view, all models rely on color-accurate IPS (for 24-inch and 27-inch) or VA panels (for 32-inch). They offer a wide color palette of 120 percent sRGB or more and 90 percent DCI-P3 or more for bold and vivid colors.
Also offered across AOC’s V5 USB-C monitor series is a refresh rate of 75 hertz, a fast GtG response time of 4 ms, and AMD FreeSync support. Integrated speakers (2 x 3 W, or 2 x 5 W for the Q32V5CE) and a headphone jack round out the package.
