Philips Blade 2 C-Line 239C4QHSB Monitor - Going Green


The Blade 2 239C4QB is a 23-inch IPS monitor from Philips and seeks to provide the color fidelity associated with IPS technology to the masses at an affordable price point. It also comes with a host of OSD presets that make the panel suitable for a...

Philips 239C4QHSB Blade 2


As with nearly all of these screens you can't adjust the height up and down ; Whilst used rarely, the configuration buttons (and menus) aren't really that nice to use

Philips 239C4QHSB Blade 2


Good image quality and viewing angles ; Stylish design ; Very slim ; 2 HDMI's ; Good price

Plastic bezel is poor quality - you can see ripples in it when the light catches it ; Clouding (faint cloud like patches of light when screen is completely black)
