Smart Mirror - The Monitor
23 Jul 2015
After I bought the Raspberry Pi, and the Hover, the next step was to get an appropriate monitor. The monitor I went with is the AOC E2476VWM6, which isn’t a great monitor for daily usage since the colour isn’t great, and only has HDMI and VGA ports.
The big selling point of this monitor was it’s thickness and weight. I plan on mounting this on my wall, so I don’t want it sticking too far out, nor do I want it falling because of the weight. Most of the monitor less than 1/4 of an inch thick, and the thickness at the widest point is just over 1 and 1/4 inches with the case removed.
Another important factor is that the ports don’t stick out, they go down, which helps further reduce the thickness.
I spent a while researching this monitor, and discussed it with the sales rep at Memory Express, and came to the conclusion that I probably wouldn’t find another monitor at this thinness and price range.
Removing the monitor case was a breeze, only had to remove two screws and pry the bezel off which is another reason why this monitor is a great choice.
