The E2270SWHN is in the cheapest 15% of all 371 latest comparable spec LCD screens that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the E2270SWHN is only £34.
AOC has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range compared to other manufacturers.
1080p Video Mode
This PC screen has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many similar spec LCD screens that were released around the same time as it.
15 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The AOC E2270SWHN does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that came out in the last year do have a built-in speaker.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other recently released medium monitors, the E2270SWHN does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the Lenovo X1 (£44.78) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most new medium monitors do not have an integrated card reader. The E2270SWHN is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the 2408WFP, or the U2413 (£275.00) both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
Most new flatpanel monitors are not 3D compatible. The E2270SWHN is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Asus PG278Q (£516.97) which also has a higher rating.

Only 20000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The E2270SWHN has a maximum contrast ratio of 20000:1. That's 100% less contrast ratio than the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 100000000:1. Across all medium monitors that came out around the same time as the E2270SWHN the worst contrast ratio is Mega Contrast and the best is 100000000:1.
If the contrast ratio of this LCD screen is too low for you then you might want to consider the LG 34UM88 (£524.34) (1000000:1) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
Across all the new medium monitors the vertical viewing angles range from 65° to 180°. The E2270SWHN has a very narrow vertical viewing angle (only 75 degrees) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec flatpanel monitors.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of comparable spec LCD screens that came out in the last 12 months is 89°, the widest is 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°. When compared to other new medium monitors, the horizontal viewing angle of the E2270SWHN of only 110 degrees is one of the narrowest.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The E2270SWHN has a very dim display brightness (only 200 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec PC monitors. The dimmest display brightness of medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the E2270SWHN is 200 cd/m², the brightest is 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².
Only HD HD Type
This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many latest comparable spec PC displays.

Very Small Viewable Height
The viewable heights of comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the E2270SWHN range from 250mm to 69,000mm. The AOC E2270SWHN has one of the smaller viewable heights (only 268.11 millimeters) amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Quite Small Display Diagonal
The E2270SWHN has a fairly small display diagonal (only 54.6 centimeters) compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors. The average display diagonal of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the E2270SWHN is 68cm, and the screen sizes range from 52cm to 690cm.
Quite Small Viewable Width
The average viewable width of PC displays that were launched in the last 12 months is 550mm. With a viewable width of only 476.64 millimeters, the AOC E2270SWHN has a fairly small viewable width compared to most of the other latest LCD screens.
Fairly High Power Consumption When Off
The average power consumption when off of medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the E2270SWHN is 0.4W. With a power consumption when off of 0.5 Watts, the E2270SWHN has one of the higher power consumptions when off amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age.
