The 221P3 is one of the more economic to run medium monitors that were released more than two years ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 221P3 will cost only £32 over 5 years to run.

Reasonably Priced

One Philips 221P3 owner mentioned that it was good value for money. Expert website Firstpost.com wrote in their review “The Philips 221P3LPYE is priced at a maximum retail price of Rs” but even so only scored it 3 stars.

Four USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The Philips 221P3 is a four USB Type-A downstream port PC screen. Most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the 221P3 have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 221P3 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC displays that were released more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker.
