Philips 200CW8FB review

 

The Philips 200CW8FB is a neatly compact 20.1in monitor featuring SmartAccessory, small storage units that can be attached to either side of the screen as a home for your MP3 player, webcam or headphones.

The Philips 200CW8FB is a decent if uninspired all-rounder: user-friendly, compact and attractive, with space-saving extras.

Philips 190CW8FB review

 

Philips' 190CW8FB has only an analogue VGA input, and we needed to tweak the image settings once we'd set it up.

Philips 190SW8FS

 

A good size for a flat widescreen monitor, given the price.

Terrible picture, lots of background flickering, especially noticable on blacks. I would have put it down to using a VGA connection when I use DVI for my own PC, but this was really bad compared to a CRT VGA monitor. It's acceptable and you don't...
