AOC touts its new Aire iPlay monitor with a built-in iPhone dock as a great gift Father’s Day, and Amazon is now carrying it for $50 off its launch price.

The 60-year-old Taiwan-based display manufacturer integrated a 30-pin docking station at the base of the 12.9 mm-thin, full HD 23-inch screen. It also included 10-watt SRS Sound speakers to allow seamless video, audio, and photo playback from an iPhone or iPod in 1080p resolution.

“The Aire iPlay displays photos and video content from your iPhone and iPod on a screen that is 37 times larger than the device it comes from,” said AOC’s Marketing Manager Robert Velez in a press release. “Whether you are playing videogames, watching movies on Netflix or videos on YouTube, or charging your iDevice, the Aire iPlay brings multimedia functionality to your monitor.”

The ultra slim display pairs with smartphones, PCs, Blu-ray players, and gaming consoles to deliver image quality with a 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio and 2 ms response time. It further boasts a Screen+ user-interface that divides the screen into four sections for better work management, and it offers a graphical OSD menu that can be “accessed directly through the mouse using integrated iMenu software.”

The Aire iPlay landed for $279, but AOC is currently offering it through Amazon for just $229.
