Just when you thought that modern LCD monitors are slim, look again. AOC's Verfino
series is unprecedented in ultra-slim monitor design. The Verfino V22 achieves
a thickness of a mere 18.5mm making the standard LCD monitor look boxy. The
Verfino series perfectly matches the modern desktop at home or office with its
sleek lines, piano black finish that is framed in high gloss translucent duco
and a touch of red to accentuate its elegance. The base even goes beyond your
plastic monitor stand, the Verfino series comes with a classy toughened glass
resembling a wine glass base. Nothing is overlooked.<br/>
<br/>
<strong>Slim Means Green</strong><br/>
The Verfino V22 uses WLED technology. Compared to the normal LCD Monitors, WLED
backlight displays are mercury free. Mercury free displays contribute to greener
computing and fast becoming a requirement for environmental protection in many

in power consumption of up to 20% making it ideal for homes and businesses who
want to save on electricity bills as well as doing their part for the environment.

reduce wastage in packaging and shipping. The detachable base and the ultra-slim
body can be packed into a mere 116 mm in thickness carton and is protected by
100% recycled pulp mold (similar materials used in egg cartons) instead of foam.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
