More and more people are working from home these days because of the virus outbreak, and that includes me. But just because you are working at home doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be stuck with a small laptop screen.

While you can accomplish most tasks with only one monitor on your laptop, making use of dual monitors will allow you to accomplish the same task in a fraction of time. In fact dual monitors have been proven to increase work productivity.


The Philips 222B9T LCD monitor comes in a large brown box with the brand logo on the upper left side of the box and feature specifications printed on the sides of the box.

Inside is a styrofoam package that serves as a cushion to the monitor, product documentations, driver, HDMI cable, power plug and power supply.

It weighs at around 7.46kg with its Z-type structure with smooth tilt enabling the screen to be moved in different viewing angles. This provides a great deal of flexibility for whatever task is at hand. Alternatively the stand that comes with the monitor can also be removed and a VESA compliant mount attached in its place.

The display also features a 3H anti-glare touch glass coating with W-LED backlighting, SmartContrast, EasyRead, Flicker-Free, and more.

The front surface of the monitor meets the IP54 protection, which means, it’s splash-resistant and dust-resistant as well.

Meanwhile the Philips 222B9T LCD monitor comes with an articulating stand that can adjust height and tilt to fit angles to enable different usage scenarios.

The Philips 222B9T LCD monitor comes with DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, and even D-Sub connections.

Finally, the display is equipped with two built-in 3W speakers with an audio input and a headphone output and a dual-port USB 3.0 hub.
