The i2369Vm model is highly connectable with Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) technology that offers great convenience for directly connecting Smartphone or other mobile devices to the beautifully crafted 23” display, to enjoy big size monitor luxury and higher quality viewing of digital content. The MHL connector also charges your Smartphone while you mirror its display. The i2369Vm model has built-in speakers, with HDMI and DisplayPort connections. The high compatibility of the monitor maximizes your multimedia experience.
The AOC i2369Vm is an sleek and well built entry-level 23in monitor.This 23in display has a slim, frameless design finished with metallic details and a brushed aluminium style texture – of course, at this price it's actually made from plastic; but the overall look is highly convincing and could most certainly be described as ‘premium' rather than ‘budget'.
The stand included with the AOC I2369VM is fairly basic since it only offers tilt from -3 degrees to 21 degrees for ergonomics. However, if that feature isn’t good enough for you, you can opt for aftermarket mounts or arms since the AOC I2369VM has a 75mm x 75mm VESA bolt pattern on the rear. You can also find a pair of speakers with this model, but like most other products, it does not have enough power to reproduce audio with clarity and range.
The AOC I2369VM has an excellent I/O layout since it has MHL-ready HDMI ports which can utilize your mobile device while charging it, a D-Sub port for legacy applications and surprisingly, a DisplayPort slot. It is relatively rare to find monitors with the latter at this price range and category. You also get a 3.5mm jack for headset pass through and signal input for the built-in speakers.
The main menu (shown in the video below) is well laid out, spread horizontally across the screen in quite a widescreen fashion. The icons that label the main sections are a bit aliased but you can still see what they are supposed to be – and the accompanying text is very clear. Some functions are later on but it’s worth highlighting a couple that don’t get a mention elsewhere. In ‘Color Setup’ there is something called ‘DCB’ (Dynamic Color Boost) mode. This accentuates (oversaturated) specific color groups such as greens, reds or blues to make certain aspects of an image stand out. The ‘Picture Boost’ section is all about controlling something called ‘Bright Frame’. This allows you to select a rectangular portion of the screen and independently set its brightness and contrast. You could make a video that you’re watching on a webpage or an in-game map stand out more, for example. Finally in ‘OSD Setup’ there is a break reminder feature. You get a reminder to take a break every hour with this function enabled. This is cumulative and resets if you turn the monitor off then on again – there is no proximity sensor or anything ‘smart’ like that.

Performance-wise, the AOC i2369Vm is excellent. Its IPS panel ensures great color reproduction and wide viewing angles, but this display out-performs all others by some considerable margin by achieving the highest measured contrast ratio of any of the IPS displays.
There are 75 x 75mm VESA holes for alternative mounting, an AC power input (and therefore an internal power converter) and the ports. Interestingly the monitor includes a DisplayPort input alongside 2 HDMI ports (one with MHL capability), VGA, a headphone jack and audio input. The DisplayPort in particular is a nice addition rarely seen on a ‘budget’ model such as this. The MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) allows the monitor to display the visual content of a compatible smart phone and also charge it. Audio can be outputted from a smartphone (via MHL) or any other device via HDMI, DisplayPort or the audio input on the monitor. This audio can then be sent out via the headphone jack or through the monitor’s internal speaker.
