Today in the labs, we have another specimen from AOC. This specific 24-inch-class monitor is a bit more unusual than most. It mates an Android tablet to a touch-enabled IPS screen that pumps out Full HD. You're probably wondering why this is a monitor review?
Well, the all-in-one Android system also supports HDMI in and D-SUB (VGA) in, making it a monitor as well. Just how well does it work? We're about to find out!
Specifications and Pricing
The A2472PW4T (from here on out, A2472) is a 24-inch LCD widescreen display set in a picture frame. The panel features the standard 1920 x 1080 resolution that most have come to expect from a monitor of this size. The panel is an IPS display, which is almost a must for any sort of Android system--note: I won't be calling it a tablet as it does not have a battery and is not very portable--and viewing angles are especially good.
The display, because it is a touchscreen, is covered in a glass panel, making it glossy and very reflective. The stand for the all-in-one is simply a flip out kickstand. As far as inputs go, it features just an HDMI and D-SUB (VGA). It also sports a USB 2.0 hub, allowing you to use your mouse and keyboard for both the Android system and your Windows desktop.
It features a built-in webcam (720p) and microphone with echo cancellation. Internally, it sports two 2W speakers, allowing Android to play sounds, notifications, and audio associated with apps and videos. It also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port for connectivity.
Moving to the Android system specs, we can see that it utilizes Android 4.2. Driving the Android system is an NVIDIA Tegra T33 quad-core processor clocked at 1.6Ghz. It features 2GB of DD3 RAM and 8GB of eMMC built-in storage. You can expand the internal storage through the use of an SDHC memory card.
