12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 203V5LSB26 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other latest LCD screens which have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Asus MX27 (£656.28) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

Most new medium monitors are not 3D compatible. The 203V5LSB26 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Acer GN276HL, or the Benq Zowie XL2430 (£324.97).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 203V5LSB26 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Lenovo X1 (£48.70) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Philips 203V5LSB26 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months also do not have an integrated card reader.

Alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider include the 2407WFP, or the 2408WFP both from DELL.
