The AOC I2757FM ships in a colourful blue box with some high quality images showcasing the monitor. The box weighs around 8kg.
Inside there are several cables, a regional specific power cable and adapter, a two piece stand with thumbscrew and a HDMI cable with manual and software disc.
The compact stand takes a few minutes to attach and doesn’t take up much physical space, although there is only tilt adjustment. The monitor itself weighs around 5.7kg.
The rear of the screen is almost mirrorlike and rather difficult to photograph without acquiring a plethora of reflections on the surface.
Along the front is the control panel to adjust settings and input parameters. We will look at this in more detail, later in the review.
The stand is nicely designed and sturdy in operation. There is an adjustment button on part of the stand extension.
The screen has two HDMI inputs and a VGA (D-Sub) connector for older graphics cards. There is also a 3.5mm audio input and a headphone jack so you can pass through audio from a computer. There is no DVI connector which is slightly disappointing, although you can get a relatively inexpensive DVI-HDMI converter cable online easily enough.
The lower HDMI connector has MHL support which means you can connect an MHL enabled device, such as a tablet or smartphone to this port and display content on the screen, while charging. It worked without a hitch during our testing.
On the rear of the panel is the ‘AOC’ logo which is modestly presented along the top . The side view of the screen isn’t particularly flattering as it looks rather ‘boxy’. That said, it does take up minimal desk space which is useful in specific situations.
