8 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The 201BL2C has an average 5 year running cost of only £28 based on average energy prices, which is in the cheapest 5% of all 998 flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type.

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Philips PC monitors and also specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 201BL2C has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC displays that have been available for a similar time to the 201BL2C which do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption When Off

PC screens of this type and age have power consumptions when off of between 0.005W and 45W, and the average power consumption when off is 0.57W. When compared to other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 201BL2C that we have checked, the power consumption when off of the 201BL2C of only 0.1 Watts is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption When Active

Across all the similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 201BL2C the power consumptions when active range from 9W to 63W. At only 17 Watts, the 201BL2C has a quite low power consumption when active compared to most of the other PC displays that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Short

Across all the comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years the heights range from 41mm to 4,800mm. The Philips 201BL2C is one of the shorter medium monitors that were released more than two years ago (only 316 millimeters) amongst similar spec flatpanel monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest PC monitor of a similar age and spec to the 201BL2C is 12mm deep, the deepest is 560mm, and the average depth is 110mm. The 201BL2C is fairly shallow (only 49 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 201BL2C.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The 201BL2C is fairly narrow (only 494 millimeters) compared to most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and type to the 201BL2C. Medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 201BL2C have widths of between 52mm and 6,500mm.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port

Most similar spec LCD screens that have been around for more than two years have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports, including the 201BL2C which has one USB Type-A downstream port.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the 201BL2C, the Philips 201BL2C is not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 201BL2C does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC displays of a similar age and type to the 201BL2C also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 201BL2C, the 201BL2C does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£349.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£226.61) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Low Maximum Height Adjustment

The 201BL2C has a very low maximum height adjustment (only 70 millimeters) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and type. The lowest maximum height adjustment of medium monitors that were released more than two years ago is 13mm and the highest is 850mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Viewable Height

LCD screens of this age and type have viewable heights of between 28mm and 630mm. At only 249.1 millimeters, the 201BL2C has a fairly small viewable height compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Display Diagonal

Across all the PC displays of this spec and age the screen sizes range from 28cm to 770cm. With a display diagonal of only 50.8 centimeters, the Philips 201BL2C's display diagonal is one of the smallest amongst medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 201BL2C.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Viewable Width

Across all the PC monitors of this type and age the viewable widths range from 1mm to 880mm, and the average viewable width is 520mm. At only 442.8 millimeters, the 201BL2C has a fairly small viewable width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the 201BL2C.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The 201BL2C is a one USB 2.0 port PC screen. Most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 201BL2C have between one and five USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

At 14.8 Watts, the 201BL2C has a quite high power consumption when in PowerSave mode compared to most of the other PC monitors of this age and spec. Across all the PC screens that have been available for a similar time to the 201BL2C the power consumptions when in PowerSave mode range from 0.14W to 80W.

2 Other reasons to consider the Philips 201BL2C

Released Over Five Years Ago

It was over five years ago when this PC screen was released.

LCD Display Type

The Philips 201BL2C has a better display type than most medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago. This flatpanel monitor has an LCD display type, whereas most PC screens of this age and spec have an LED display type.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the Planar PLL2210W (£63.38), or the Eizo ColorEdge CX270 which has better reviews.

LCD screens with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the AOC e2250Swdnk (LED) which also has a higher rating.
