AOC has introduced a new 27” display that features Qi wireless charging for mobile phones in the base. The monitor uses a PLS panel and has standard characteristics for a mainstream device aimed at office environments. Despite this, the P2779VC is one of the first 27” displays with Qi wireless charging and it will make an appealing option for those who need both large screen and Qi, especially given its affordable price.

The AOC P2779VC is a 27” IPS monitor with a 1920×1080 resolution, 300 nits brightness, 178°/178° viewing angles, and a 60 Hz refresh rate (static contrast ratio is unknown). The display is listed as reproducing 16.77 million colors, enough for office workloads, and has a response time of 5 ms gray-to-gray, enough for videos and gaming. AOC does not confirm adherence to any particular color space in its spec sheet.

When it comes to connectivity, the AOC P2779VC is a fairly basic monitor with one D-Sub and two HDMI 1.3 inputs. Unlike some other mainstream displays, this one does not have built-in speakers or a USB hub which may be an advantage for tightly-packed corporate offices that have to deal with noise (minus speakers) and mind corporate security (minus USB). 

Panel 27" PLS
Native Resolution 1920 × 1080
Maximum Refresh Rate 60 Hz
Response Time 5 ms (gray-to-gray)
Brightness 300 cd/m²
Contrast 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
Viewing Angles 178°/178° horizontal/vertical
Pixel Pitch 0.311 × 0.311 mm
Inputs 1 × HDMI 1.3
1 × D-Sub
Wireless charging Qi wireless charging base
Power Consumption Standby < 0.5 W
Maximum 23.5 W

Meanwhile, the key selling feature of the P2779VC is its base that features a Qi wireless charging pad in the base. As far as we could find, commercially, only Samsung has released two SE370 displays that support Qi and feature 23.6” and 27” PLS panels. As a result AOC’s monitor is not going to have too many rivals right now. Keep in mind that at present there are tens of smartphones and tablets with integrated Qi wireless charging technology (including those from ASUS, Samsung, Google, HP, Microsoft and other) and there are accessories that enable the tech on devices without integrated support (e.g., on Apple iPhone 6S).

The AOC P2779VC comes with a black or gold base and with the company’s standard three-year warranty. The price of the display is $199.99, which is a bit lower when compared to the price of the Samsung SE370 270 that is available for $213.80.

    So where's your answer to my "clueless question"? Ever wonder why everybody take a piss at every one of your comments? No, it's not because you're a misunderstood genius, it's because the discussion would miss absolutely nothing of value with you gone. Nobody knows everything but you certainly know less than most as shown by this simple discussion.

    You're never there to answer a difficult question or even to ask it. Just for some cheap irony (and you're not even that good at that) or trying hard to sound smarter than you are. Just stringing along a few buzz words and technical terms and in the end you still don't make sense (maybe it's that misunderstood genius misconception again).

    And because I see you like to go off on rants, how about that 5.25" hard drive you invented? Or that media content server with a typical load of 2 users loading 2 pictures simultaneously? Or the Windows 10 that will never be used?

    So, do you *know* why the AOC P2779VC doesn't feature a DP port? Or are you just going to keep circling the drain but never go down? ;)
  • ddriver - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - link

    Because DP is clearly the better choice. They don't mind that HDMI would cost them more because of licensing fees, you will pay for all of this and more. The higher the BOM is, the higher profit margin they can ask for the product. HDMI is not the best choice for you, but it is the best choice for them, because they are only in it for the money.

    The industry cannot afford to allow consumers to rise their standards and expectations, people are cattle for working and milking. If they give you the better DP interface on every product today and for less money, eventually they will have to give the fabled 5.25" HDD as well. And why waste money on researching groundbreaking new tech when as long as they all have a mutual implicit agreement, they can keep milking people with the same old cr@p, barely increment it rather than making quantum leaps. To hell with efficiency, convenience and environmental impact. Those are not important factors, the industry has a long history on wasting precious and finite resources on criminally useless products, just to milk idiots with them.

    For example, it is current technologically possible to have cars using 1/4 of the fuel of today's most economic cars, and 10x times safer than the safest high end luxury vehicles of today. And it has been technologically possible for at least 30 years. And the cost would be much lower, to purchase and to service. But the industry will not be bringing this, not 30 years ago when it became possible, not today, not in the near future, not ever! Because it is there for the simple purpose of making money. it is not about building better cars, it is about making money, so cars will never ever be as good as they can be, they will keep barely improving the same old stuff and as long as the entire industry does that, nobody will object or even have higher expectations, because people like you don't know any better than what's thrown at them. Even such "innovators" like Musk produce what can only be regarded as barely incremental and mediocre innovations, nothing ground breaking, nothing paradigm shifting, although it is entirely possible, and with everything being so mediocre there is actually a huge room for improvement in practically every facet of contemporary life.

    wow that was really funny, thanks for the smiles.

    5.25" Hard Drive? I didn't realize we were going back to 1993.

    I'm really interested to know how you get a car that is cheaper, 10x safer, and 4x more efficient than any leaders of their respective categories all at the same time. Does it take 2 minutes to get to 60?

    The invisible hand of the market, eh?
  • nathanddrews - Monday, December 5, 2016 - link

    Quick charge or regular charge?
  • jordanclock - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - link

    As far as I know, Qi for smartphones and tablets is only 5W. Samsung's Fast Charge for wireless is proprietary and approximately 10W.

    Forget the phone, all thats needed here is a wireless chargeable mouse and keyboard and we're good to go.
  • DanNeely - Monday, December 5, 2016 - link

    I'd be more concerned about how stable its stand is. I've got an AOC E2251Swdn; and the non-adjustable stand on it is a wobbly lump of fail. This one doesn't appear to be height adjustable; but does it at least have tilt or minor rotate adjustments? I've had to shim my pile of books monitor stand with scraps of cardboard to angle the screen correctly to align with my other displays.

    Surprised there are no comments on the crazy low res panel. 1080p on a 27"? I wouldn't pay $199 for that.
