13 Reasons For
Low Running Costs
The E2260 is one of the cheaper to run similar spec LCD screens that have been available for more than two years that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the E2260 will cost only £34 over 5 years to run.
Medium monitors built by AOC have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that AOC also has good ratings across its entire range.
Easy to Use
Several AOC E2260 owners wrote in their reviews that it was easy to use. Shoney gave the AOC E2260 a rating of 99 out of 100 and mentioned “Clear to use does what it does so im happy to recommend it”.
User Reviews Are Good
On average, based on 19 user reviews the average user rating of this medium monitor is 83%.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC displays of this spec and age.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the Benq GW2255 (£91.02), the AOC E2470 (£86.49), and the LG 22M35 (£81.75) which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
50000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the AOC E2260 is 50000000:1. That's over two times the contrast ratio of the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 20000000:1. Across all PC monitors of a similar type and age to the E2260 the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens that have a 50000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think because of it's better review score, the i2476 (£104.99), and the I2276 (£92.99) both from AOC or the Asus VS228 (£87.60) is also worth considering.
PC monitors with a higher contrast ratio that might also be worth looking at include the HL226 (£89.99) (80000000:1), or the HS221 (£89.98) (80000000:1) both from Hanns.G or the Asus VE228 (£79.98) (80000000:1) which is also higher rated.

Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years, the AOC E2260 has a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Hannspree HS221HPB (£91.41) which has a better Rating.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Hannspree HL226HPB (£88.99), or the Benq GW2260 is also worth considering.
Fairly Long Mean Time Between Failures
The mean time between failures of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the E2260 range from 30h to 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 32,000h. With a mean time between failures of 70,000 hours, the AOC E2260 has one of the longer mean time between failures amongst LCD screens of this age.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the AOC E2260 is more than most PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to it. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC monitor. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|DVI|VGA are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
1080p Video Mode
This flatpanel monitor has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.
Across all the flatpanel monitors of this type and age the widths range from 220mm to 5,200mm, and the average width is 580mm. The AOC E2260 is quite narrow (only 507.8 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.
Alternative PC monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Samsung S22A450 (£99.99) (508mm).
Medium monitors that have been available for more than two years have weights of between 3g and 39kg. With a weight of only 2.7 kilograms, the AOC E2260 is quite light compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the E2260.
Quite Fast Response Time
At only 2 milliseconds, the AOC E2260 has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the E2260. The fastest response time of LCD screens of a similar type and age to the E2260 is 1ms, the slowest is 69ms, and the average response time is 6.2ms.
10 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
Most PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The AOC E2260 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the HP LP2065 which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the E2260 do not have a built-in camera. The AOC E2260 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the HP Compaq LA2206 (£83.99) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC displays of this type and age, the AOC E2260 does not have an integrated card reader.
Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution
The AOC E2260 has a maximum display resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. That's 15% less display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC monitor, which is the most frequently found display resolution. Across all PC monitors that are a comparable age to the E2260 the display resolution ranges from 1366 x 768 pixels (worst) to 2560 x 1600 pixels (best).
There are a number of alternative PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Lenovo LT2252P (£83.99).
If the display resolution of this PC screen is too few for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 2007FP (1600 x 1200), the HP LP2065 (1600 x 1200), or the iiyama X2380HS (£119.99) (1920 x 1080) which also has a higher Rating.
