4 Reasons For

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

Philips has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire flatpanel monitor range compared to other manufacturers.

Fairly Long Mean Time Between Failures

The mean time between failures of flatpanel monitors of this spec and age range from 30h to 70,000h. At 50,000 hours, the 201E1SB has a quite long mean time between failures compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 201E1SB.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The widths of PC screens of a similar spec and age to the 201E1SB range from 52mm to 6,500mm. At only 479 millimeters, the Philips 201E1SB is quite narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 201E1SB.

If you would consider a LCD screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the HP W2072[plb_1398438_price] (477.3mm), the AOC E2050S[plb_1412284_price] (477.75mm), or the DELL P2012H[plb_1448034_price] (478.4mm).

Short

When compared to other PC monitors of this type and age, the 201E1SB's height of only 290 millimeters is one of the shortest. The heights of medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 201E1SB range from 41mm to 4,800mm, and the average height is 380mm.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The 201E1SB does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 201E1SB also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The 201E1SB is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 201E1SB does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays that came out more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The 201E1SB does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

Across all the comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for a similar time to the 201E1SB the screen sizes range from 28cm to 770cm, and the average display diagonal is 65cm. With a display diagonal of only 51.05 centimeters, the 201E1SB has one of the smaller screen sizes amongst medium monitors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC monitor has an HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

3 Other reasons to consider the Philips 201E1SB

Running Costs Are Average

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the 201E1SB is £44, which is typical compared to the other 998 PC screens of a comparable spec and age.

Released Over Seven Years Ago

This flatpanel monitor has been on the market for over seven years.

LCD Display Type

The Philips 201E1SB has an LCD display type which is better than most PC monitors that are a comparable age to it. Most medium monitors that are a similar age to it have an LED display type.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC screens that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Planar PLL2210W[plb_1809826_price], or the Eizo ColorEdge CX270[plb_1724638_price].

PC displays with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the AOC e2250Swdnk[plb_1364842_price] (LED and higher rated).
