The AOC I960 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other small monitors that have been available for a similar time to the I960 do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper LCD screens such as the AOC I960SRDA (£108.71), the Samsung S19E450MW (£109.18), or the Asus VB198TL (£138.60).
50000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the AOC I960 is 50000000:1. That's over two times the contrast ratio of a 20000000:1 PC display, which is the most common contrast ratio. PC monitors of this type and age dynamic contrast ratios range from Mega Contrast to 100000000:1.
We compared all the other LCD screens that have a 50000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this LCD screen and we think the Asus VB198TL (£138.60) which is cheaper; or the VB199 (£122.84), and the VB198T (£130.87) both from Asus which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
If the contrast ratio of this LCD screen is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the Asus VX207NE (£65.98) (100000000:1 and cheaper).
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The horizontal viewing angles of flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the I960 range from 90° to 180°. At 178 degrees, the AOC I960 has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the I960.

Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
Across all the small monitors that have been around for a similar time to the I960 the vertical viewing angles range from 50° to 180°. At 178 degrees, the AOC I960 has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other small monitors that were released around the same time as the I960.
Quite Big Viewable Height
The viewable heights of PC monitors of this type and age range from 170mm to 310mm. At 301 millimeters, the AOC I960 has a quite big viewable height compared to most of the other small monitors that were released one year ago.
1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to it.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The AOC I960 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC displays of this spec and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
Not 3D Compatible
The AOC I960 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the I960 are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to the I960, the AOC I960 does not have a built-in camera.
Quite High Power Consumption When Off
The average power consumption when off of PC screens of a similar spec and age to the I960 is 0.36W, and the power consumptions when off range from 0.1W to 1W. At 0.5 Watts, the AOC I960 has a fairly high power consumption when off compared to most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the I960.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Response Time
With a response time of 14 milliseconds, the AOC I960 has a quite slow response time compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out more than a year ago. Small monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the I960 have response times of between 5ms and 30ms, and the average response time is 7.6ms.
2 Other reasons to consider the AOC I960
Average Running Costs
The average running cost of the I960 is £39 over 5 years based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 61 flatpanel monitors of this age and spec.
1280 X 1024 Pixels Display Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on small monitors that came out more than a year ago.
We compared all the other PC screens that have a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels to this PC monitor and we think the VB198T (£130.87), and the VB199 (£122.84) both from Asus which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
If the display resolution of this AOC PC display is not many enough for you then you might also want to consider the Viewsonic VA2055SM (£89.87) (1920 x 1080 and higher rated); or the AOC M2060PWDA2 (£71.49) (1920 x 1080 and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this PC monitor have been estimated based on other similar PC monitors. If you know how much electricity and water the AOC I960uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this PC monitor over 5 years will generate 0.19 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 5 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
