9 Reasons For

We checked 814 owner and expert reviews for Philips PC monitors and found that on average Philips has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Philips has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors.
LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it.
We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the iiyama X2888HS[plb_2499669_price] which has better reviews; or the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price], and the Samsung LS23C350[plb_2336210_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The 220P4LPYE has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age do not have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer G276HL[plb_1413284_price], or the iiyama X2888HS[plb_2499669_price].
We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Asus VW24[plb_2199699_price].
Supports One Placement
The number of placements supported by the Philips 220P4LPYE is more than most PC screens of this age and type. The most commonly supported placement is Horizontal, but this placement is not supported by this Philips PC monitor. The placements Horizontal/Vertical are also supported by this Philips PC screen.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other 504mm wide LCD screens and we think the Philips 220B4[plb_1399348_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
LCD screens with a wider width that might be worth looking at include the iiyama B2280WSD-B1[plb_1378652_price] (512.5mm), or the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price] (507mm) which is also cheaper.
