Philips Blade 2 239C4QH

RH Numbers

Featuring a 23in IPS panel in a stylish, slimline enclosure, the aptly-named Blade 2 has been made as thin as possible by moving as much of the technical gubbins as possible into the base – which features a row of wipe-clean touch-sensitive buttons as well as VGA and a pair of HDMI inputs. There’s no self-assembly required with this monitor as the hinged base folds flat for storage. Although contrast and black levels weren’t quite as strong or consistent as I’ve seen from other IPS panels, picture quality clearly outclasses TN displays and an overdrive feature helps tweak response times for gamers.

Philips S-Line 221S3UCB

RH Numbers

The 21.5in Philips S-Line 221S3UCB is very different from the other displays I’ve looked at here. It’s not particularly stylish, nor does it offer particularly exciting performance. It comes with no controls whatsoever – not even brightness, and has no video inputs. This is because this monitor uses a single USB 2.0 input for both power and display connections, making it a very simple addition to your Windows laptop with the minimum of fuss. Yes, there are now 23 and 24in USB monitors available, but these tend to require more power to run making them more demanding on your laptop.
