11 Reasons For

Two Industry Awards

This medium monitor received an Almodi.org "Original Design" award and it received a "Silver" award from Xtremehardware.com who concluded it was great.

Average Expert Reviews

Nine experts from sites including Techradar, 01net.com, Les Numeriques.com and pcmweb.nl have rated this PC monitor on average 72 out of 100.

Reasonably Priced

Two customers wrote in their reviews that this PC monitor was cheap. Expert website Flatpanelshd.com wrote in their review “Philips Blade 2 review Philips Blade 2 - or 239C4QHSB – is a new inexpensive monitor based on the IPS panel technology”. Flatpanelshd.com also wrote “Philips Blade 2 - or 239C4QHSB – is the latest in the line of inexpensive IPS based monitors”.

One person who bought the product concluded that it was a bargain for the price. Expert website Flatpanelshd.com mentioned in their review of this PC monitor “Philips aims to challenge the cheap TN based monitors available today with a low-cost alternative, just like AOC has done with its I235”.

One customer who reviewed this PC monitor thought it was good value for money. Expert website Uk.hardware.info said “Either you could get an affordable screen with a TN panel, or an extremely expensive yet superior one with IPS panel”.

Good Size

One Philips 239C4 owner who reviewed it concluded that it was thin. Expert website Flatpanelshd.com wrote in their review of this PC monitor four years ago “It is extremely thin, measuring just 12.5 mm in depth, due to the edge LED backlight” .

LED Display

This PC screen has an LED display, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to consider including the Samsung S23C650[plb_1726515_price], or the Philips 275C5QHAW[plb_3174546_price] which is cheaper; or the NEC EA224WMi[plb_1412543_price] which has better reviews.
