Excellent User Reviews

On average, based on 6 user reviews the average user rating of this PC display is exceptional.

1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio

This PC display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many PC screens of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The 196V3LSB is fairly shallow (only 51 millimeters) compared to most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 196V3LSB. Small monitors that were released more than two years ago have depths of between 8mm and 530mm.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Power Consumption

Similar spec PC displays that have been available for a comparable time to the 196V3LSB have maximum power consumptions of between 11W and 70W, and the average maximum power consumption is 26W.

Not 3D Compatible

Most LCD screens of this spec and age are not 3D compatible. The Philips 196V3LSB is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Neovo C-17 (£103.20), or the Samsung SMT-1934 (£123.00).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most small monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 196V3LSB do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 196V3LSB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the HP 688736-001, or the Asus VK207 (£124.99).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other small monitors that are a comparable age to the 196V3LSB, the Philips 196V3LSB does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the Samsung LS20C300.

Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

The Philips 196V3LSB has a maximum display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. That's 20% less display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.

If the display resolution of this LCD screen is too few for you then you might want to look at the B193 (1440 x 900), or the 196W (£68.99) (1440 x 900) both from Acer or the HP Compaq LA1905wg (£81.99) (1440 x 900).

The 196V3LSB has a better display type than most PC monitors of this type and age. This PC screen has an LCD display type, whereas most comparable spec PC displays that were released around the same time as it have an LED display type.

PC monitors with a better display type that might be worth considering include the Hanns.G HP195 (£75.60) (LED), the NEC MultiSync EA193 (£153.93) (LED), or the Philips 203V5 (£45.00) (LED).
