AOC is launching the “Zifas” 22-inch widescreen LCD monitor 2218Ph, that evokes the flair of Apple Computer or Porsche Design with its sleek aluminium chassis, solid aluminium and zinc stand, and soft-touch controls backlit with orange illumination. The flexible Z-shaped stand is able to fold almost completely flat and can also be used as an extensible wall mount. The smooth-contoured glossy screen can be pivoted to portrait orientation. With VGA and HDMI inputs, Zifas may soon find itself doing double duty as a sophisticated PC monitor and chic HD video display in trendy homes and offices.

As a model from the Professional line, the 2218Ph has a dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) of 12,000:1 and a fast reaction time of 2ms for pin-sharp images with no motion blur. The 2218Ph will satisfy users from a technical, graphics or gaming background, and everyone who values elegance and performance.
