AOC has launched a new range of monitors in conjunction with Studio F.A. Porsche: the 24-inch PDS241 and the 27-inch PDS271.
While the specs aren’t really much to write home about – 1080p and a max refresh rate of 76Hz – design is everything here. Tiny bezels and an ultra-thin screen are complemented by what the company refers to as the first ever modular design on a monitor. What this means is that there aren’t any visible cables coming from the monitor.
How this witchcraft is achieved is by combining the HDMI input and power into one single cable that comes out of the display’s asymmetrical stand. The only downside to this is that you’re only getting a single HDMI input, meaning that you are unable to have multiple sources plugged into the monitor at once. While that might be a hinderance for people looking to switch between, say, a PC and a games console, with its design-first looks, the PDS will likely find its home in design agencies and receptions where it won’t be a problem.
Both monitors will be available in June, with an MSRP of €219 and €299 for the 24- and 27-inch displays respectively. We are awaiting UK pricing, but we imagine it’ll be around the same figure.
