The future is now. Earlier this year I saw "2001: A Space Odessey" in its entirety for the first time (I know, extremely late to the party). One of the details of that incredibly detailed film that caught my eye was the particular aesthetic of all the "future" tech, all of which had a clean and, at times, soft look to it.
The first thing that struck me when I opened the AOC e2243Fw's box was how much it reminded me of "2001." There probably wasn't an electronic device in the film that looked quite like this, especially considering its wide HD screen, but the monitor's very particular contours reminded me of the film.
Anyway, beyond its looks the e2243Fw has some surprising performance for a sub-$200 monitor, and even for a monitor over $300.
