8 Reasons For
Philips Has Good LCD Screen Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all Philips PC displays and also specifically for Philips small monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on small monitors that have been available for more than a year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the HP V196[plb_2839225_price] which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The 200V4LAB2 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC screens that were launched more than a year ago which do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper flatpanel monitors such as the HKC 1976A[plb_3276543_price] is also worth considering.
There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Philips 19P4QYEB[plb_3444351_price], or the AOC M2060SWDA2[plb_2949555_price].
Quite Fast Response Time
At only 5 milliseconds, the 200V4LAB2 has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other small monitors that came out around the same time as the 200V4LAB2. The response times of PC displays that have been on the market for a similar time to the 200V4LAB2 range from 2ms to 25ms.
Fairly High RMS Rated Audio Power
With an RMS rated audio power of 4 Watts, the 200V4LAB2 has one of the higher RMS rated audio powers amongst PC screens of this age. The lowest RMS rated audio power of comparable spec PC screens that were launched more than a year ago is 0.6W, the highest is 4W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 2.3W.
Has Two Cables Included
The 200V4LAB2 has a greater number of cables included than most PC displays of a similar age and type to it. This Philips PC monitor has a VGA cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on small monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 200V4LAB2. The cable included "AC" is also found on this PC monitor.

Quite Big Viewable Width
With a viewable width of 432 millimeters, the 200V4LAB2 has one of the bigger viewable widths amongst similar spec flatpanel monitors of this age. Across all the small monitors that were released more than a year ago the viewable widths range from 260mm to 480mm, and the average viewable width is 390mm.
Fairly Big Display Diagonal
The screen sizes of LCD screens of this spec and age range from 35cm to 490cm. With a display diagonal of 49.5 centimeters, the Philips 200V4LAB2 has a fairly big display diagonal compared to most of the other small monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 200V4LAB2.

The price of the 200V4LAB2 increased by £7.46 in the last month.
Not 3D Compatible
The 200V4LAB2 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the 200V4LAB2 are also not 3D compatible.

The 200V4LAB2 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to the 200V4LAB2 also do not have a built-in camera.
