Like the idea of a dual-monitor setup but don’t actually want to go through the hassle of hooking up two separate displays? Philips offers a 2-in-1 monitor that basically puts two 19 inch displays on a single stand and allows you to adjust the viewing angles.

The Philips Two-in-One LCD monitor is available from Newegg for $418.

That’s actually a little more expensive than the cost of buying two separate monitors. But there are a few advantages to the Philips 19DP6QJNS two-in-one solution.

Not only do the screens share a single stand, but the bezel around the screens is just 2.5mm, which minimizes the gap between the two displays which makes it feel a bit more like you’re using a single super-wide monitor.

The two monitors also share a single power cable.

Each monitor is a 1280 x 1024 pixel IPS display with 178 degree viewing angles — and you can adjust the angle of each display by up to 22.5 degrees so that they either lie flat next to one another or tilt in toward the center.

The first display supports VGA and DisplayPort input while the second supports VGA and MHL-HDMI input. Each also has two USB 2.0 ports, allowing you to use the monitor as a USB hub.

  1. What a ripoff.

    I can get two widescreen monitors for $200.

    Or I can get a really big one for $300.

      1. Indeed… a product specifically made to slag off some old display panels on people who haven’t heard of the term ‘resolution’

    1. Its Philips, what did you expect?

      I will not buy anything from Philips anymore, for reasons…

      – the quality control of these corporate foam whippers can’t keep up with their rampant outsourcing and re-branding of cheap crap.
      – they’re priced as if it was made in Japan or Germany
      – purposely engineered to break soonish – just one example: Philips electric toothbrushes have no guides to attach the expensive disposable brushes correctly. If you stick them in wrong, there’s no resistance to prevent you, but the brush will never hold again and needs to be replaced.
      Other brands of electric toothbrushes make it impossible to insert the brush wrong, so your kids and spouse won’t trash theirs on first use.

      – there’s an evil and greedy spirit in that corporation – that doesn’t make them unique among corporations, but there are other, less conniving manufacturers, who often actually build some products themselves.
