Thought this would be great for mounting above my treadmill and mirroring my iPhone's display, but alas:

"Finally, the dock: the thing that presumably justifies charging twice what comparably-specced 1080p displays cost. Well, it charges your device, and you can play music from it through the speakers.
But if you think you can mirror your iOS device's display, or use it as an easy way to watch iPlayer on the big screen, you're in for an unpleasant surprise. Only apps that implement a specific video output method - such as the built-in Videos or Photos app - are supported, and that means no iPlayer, no 4oD, no Netflix and so on. Also, video is passed to the screen over an analogue connection, and it's low-res and smeary."

Ouch!

I'm disappointed in Woot. 22" monitor available NEW from Best Buy for same price as Woot's refurb.

I have been using a 23" AOC monitor for a couple of years ever since my old monitor went on the blink.

Using it right now...Love it.

Thank you for posting this. I almost pulled the trigger, and ran across your post. Sometimes products arent exactly what they appear (or what you want them) to be.

AOC has the worst warranty in the business. MicrCenter quit selling their crap because of this. I had a 55" TV fail after 4 months, they wanted me to crate it up and ship it to them on my dime for repair. AVOID this brand at all costs.

Bummer it failed but after 4 months alot of company's would make you ship it back on your dime. They didn't have a local authorized repair shop?

AOC myStage e2343Fi review
Want to watch movies on a washed-out screen with awful audio? Okay!
By Christopher Phin from MacFormat Issue 253 October 4th
0 comments

The problem with the AOC mySTage e2343Fi monitor isn't so much the fact that the screen is poor, or that the speakers in the base are lacklustre. Neither is it that the finish and build quality feel cheap, that the price is high, or that the iPod/iPhone dock doesn't do what you hope. No, the problem is all of these at once.

The panel itself, at 1,920x1,080 pixels, might have impressed us five years ago, but it's not good enough today. No matter how we fiddled with colour profiles, the different modes on the screen, or the manual controls, we couldn't get rid of the blue bias.

Worse, despite boasting a meaningless 50,000,000:1 contrast ratio, everything was shockingly washed out.

There's enough space in the base to fit speakers that could make a decent stab at reproducing a song or a movie soundtrack with some semblance of accuracy and drama. Sadly, AOC hasn't taken the opportunity to fit those speakers; what we have instead are insipid.

The shiny black plastic of the frame doesn't match the premium finish of a Mac, and there's an alarming amount of wobble in the stand. The screen is at least slim.

Finally, the dock: the thing that presumably justifies charging twice what comparably-specced 1080p displays cost. Well, it charges your device, and you can play music from it through the speakers.

But if you think you can mirror your iOS device's display, or use it as an easy way to watch iPlayer on the big screen, you're in for an unpleasant surprise. Only apps that implement a specific video output method - such as the built-in Videos or Photos app - are supported, and that means no iPlayer, no 4oD, no Netflix and so on. Also, video is passed to the screen over an analogue connection, and it's low-res and smeary.

The idea of a combined Full HD screen, dock and speaker is really appealing. Just don't buy this one.

I also was tempted but even the more favorable reviews lead me to believe it's not worth it.

"The built-in iPod/iPhone dock and good screen responsiveness could make the AOC e2343Fi an attractive choice for gamers and Apple device owners. But, unfortunately, colour fidelity isn't spot on and contrast is slightly below average, which could prove a turn-off for others."

I ordered two of these 22" refurb monitors and one was DOA. The whole process for dealing with this issue is quite cloudy. All I know is that I have a $90 cardboard box and want this issue QUICKLY resolved. The one that did work is nice, I just want my bad one replaced.

Please advise.

Hi there!
If you haven't already, you may try contacting the manufacturer. If there are any issues with that please don't hesitate to contact support@woot.com for more options.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Thanks for responding.

Actually I did contact them - further leading to my confusion and disappointment. They told me to either submit an RMA request and they would repair it, but I have to pay shipping back or contact Woot for a replacement. It sucks bad enough to end up with a DOA item, but now it is becoming complicated, costly, and a major pain. :-( I don't think I will feel safe buying items like this from Woot ever again if this turns out how I think it will.

Thanks. I emailed Woot support this morning. Hopefully they will get back to me soon and we can put this issue behind us.
