Philips 230C1 review


The 230C1 is towards the top-end of what you'd expect to pay for a 23in monitor, but Philips has put a lot of effort into making an impressive display.

A 23in monitor with Full HD resolution, superb picture quality and a smart, practical design, all for well under £200. It's a brilliant choice.
