    I've no idea if the monitor is any good or not, but AOC really need to work on their model names!

    Not really sure why they don't also include an HDMI/MHL port on these. I can imagine a number of uses where a device could power the screen [via USB] but output via HDMI (eg. Raspberry Pi or a console). Basically, the extra flexibility would make this a marvellous product, esp for the mod/DIY community. As it stands, its use scope is much narrower.

    So could I use my S7 via this device?

    So let's say I could sync with this via WiFi and stream a fill via my phone?

    It's just a normal pc display, just powered by the usb port which also sends it the 'video feed' from the host pc.

    I'm more shocked by the fact the stats say it's 35mm thick....the asus one is 8mm thick....

    Wants to plug it into his Phantom 4 controller/Blackmagic camera... but can't as it doesn't have hdmi. Moves along.

    Worse, it doesn't send a "video feed" over USB, it sends a USB signal over USB. PC has to be tricked into using a virtual USB graphics card in the monitor itself that creates the actual video signal thus requiring driver support for proprietary USB graphics adapters and not just, say, a signal converter/adapter.
