Unclutter your home office with a single cable USB-C monitor

As many of us have made a sudden shift to working from home in the past year due to adversities in the world, different needs slowly emerge in our home and alter everyday routine. The new needs lead us to a whole lot of last-minute shopping to set-up the perfect home office – or at least one that was efficient, comfortable and neat enough.

The struggles

Working from home often means having tech devices, office equipment and other tools all clutter in one space, leading to a desk that often looks more like a storage space. And a messy set-up leads to an even messier house and mind. It’s no use working on a desk when laptop, agenda or even a cup of water have to battle to find their place – it’s not comfortable at all and feels definitely overwhelming (as studies showed[1]). It affects your mood, resilience and ability to work effectively – continuously distracting us and bombarding our mind with excessive stimuli.

The solutions

Luckily, there are some issues that can definitely be solved with the right technology. Are your video calls low-quality and this affects your daily communication with your colleagues? Do you feel like you’d need a bit more of speed to transfer data from your external devices to your laptop and vice versa? Getting the best out of the latest tech innovations is actually easy, when you know what could solve your problems.

Therefore, we need more than ever to have a simple, clean but highly performing set-up. We cannot avoid the number of devices requested to work, but we can lower the number of cables thanks to one cable solution, the USB-C.

A slim and ultra-clean cable can help in reducing clutter, while also enabling and boosting major fast data transfer. It’s a new emerging standard that AOC has already integrated in some of its latest models, to ensures a greater user-experience at work and at home alike.

Benefits of USB-C

Thanks to a single cable solution, you can connect and power up the monitor: the display signal is transferred via USB-C (DisplayPort alternate mode), as well as high-speed data, while powering and charging your laptop at the same time (USB Power Delivery) up to 90W. Only one single cable carries both power and video signal to the screen, for a simple yet efficient connectivity.

Type-C ports are generally extremely fast, based on the protocol they rely on. They may feature USB 3.0 or USB 3.1, reaching up to 10 gigabits per second. Latest USB-C cables can even transmit an image signal of 4K UHD with a refresh rate of 60Hz, or 60 frames per second. They’re fast and highly efficient.

Unlike older USB cable, you can insert this cable either way: being the plug symmetrical, it removes the frustrations and fumbling of previous USB ports. There is no “correct orientation” to make us overthink and flip the cable countless of times, it’s finally utterly reversible.

USB-C connector systems are rapidly becoming a new standard and most laptops these days rely on this technology, making it even more convenient. They are flexible, no need of external adapter and are now replacing USB Type A in all new devices. Moreover, you won’t have to keep loads of diverse USB cables with different connector shapes for your devices. On the other hand, for those users that still relies on older peripherals, there are a lot of adapters to connect older devices to Type-C ports, even devices that use non-USB technologies, like DisplayPort, VGA and Ethernet.

Thanks to AOC USB-C solutions you will be able to:

  • Extend your laptop autonomy without external power supply
  • Charge your phone and any smart devices while working
  • Plug all external devices you need directly to the monitor
  • Transfer your data (o contents) rapidly and easily

Complete connection

If you’re looking for the highest connectivity, go straight for a P2 model. The 24P2C and the 27P2C are special future-proof choices with the most versatile connections, including alongside their USB hubs, a USB-C input for simultaneous data transfer and charging. Additionally, the USB 3.2 hub ensures lightning-fast data transmission. These two models also feature the built-in KVM switch, that enables seam-less switch of the connected keyboard and mouse between two different sources.

Awarded and high-end solution

The perfect monitor can be both cutting-edge inside and stunning outside. The Red Dot Design Award-winning U32U1 combines the best of two worlds - the audacious design from Studio F. A. Porsche and the top-notch display technology from AOC, making it an ideal choice for those who are looking for a powerful monitor that can complement their house aesthetic. It also features integrated USB-C port for easy, efficient and fast connectivity and data transfer.

Are you ready to explore a new level of connectivity? Boost your productivity, power and comfort with USB-C for a future-proof home office, one that’s actually efficient, comfortable and neat.
