8 Reasons For
One customer said in their reviews that it was a good size. Mr Steven a Gluyas rated the product as very good and he wrote two years ago “Great monitor just what was required! Perfect nice size great for the whole family” in his review of this PC monitor.
Only Released Eight Months Ago
This PC screen was released just eight months ago, so it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older flatpanel monitors.
Philips Has Good PC Monitor Reviews
Medium monitors manufactured by Philips have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that Philips also has good reviews across its entire range.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.
The 223V5LSB2 is one of the shallower medium monitors that have been around for the last year (only 50 millimeters) amongst PC screens of this age. The depths of comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to the 223V5LSB2 range from 7mm to 610mm, and the average depth is 100mm.
At only 503 millimeters, the Philips 223V5LSB2 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 223V5LSB2. Across all the new comparable spec PC monitors the widths range from 370mm to 850mm, and the average width is 590mm.
Flatpanel monitors with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the HP 22kd (£79.98) (507.6mm).
+3 More reasons for
At only 316 millimeters, the 223V5LSB2 is quite short compared to most of the other new medium monitors. The average height of newly released comparable spec flatpanel monitors is 360mm.
At only 2.4 kilograms, the Philips 223V5LSB2 is fairly light compared to most of the other LCD screens that have been around for the last year. The lightest similar spec LCD screen that was launched in the last 12 months is 2.6g weight and the heaviest is 33kg.
13 Reasons Against
One customer mentioned in their reviews that the Philips 223V5LSB2 did not have good technical guidance.
One Philips 223V5LSB2 owner who reviewed this PC monitor concluded that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Andrey Odintsov said “There is no HDMI on this monitor” in their Philips 223V5LSB2 review.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The 223V5LSB2 does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the 223V5LSB2.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Hannspree HL207DPB (£65.69) is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Philips 223V5LSB2 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec PC monitors that are a comparable age to the 223V5LSB2 are also not 3D compatible.
+10 More reasons against
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months do not have an integrated card reader. The Philips 223V5LSB2 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The 223V5LSB2 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last year also do not have a built-in camera.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
With a horizontal viewing angle of only 90 degrees, the 223V5LSB2 has one of the narrowest horizontal viewing angles amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age. Across all the medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 223V5LSB2 the horizontal viewing angles range from 65° to 180°.
Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
With a vertical viewing angle of only 65 degrees, the 223V5LSB2's vertical viewing angle is one of the narrowest amongst flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the 223V5LSB2. Recently released medium monitors have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The average display brightness of PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the 223V5LSB2 is 280 cd/m². At only 200 candellas per square meter, the Philips 223V5LSB2 has a fairly dim display brightness compared to most of the other latest medium monitors.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many comparable spec PC screens that have been available for the last year.
Very Small Display Diagonal
The smallest display diagonal of flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as the 223V5LSB2 is 49cm, the biggest is 690cm, and the average display diagonal is 67cm. At only 54.6 centimeters, the 223V5LSB2 has a fairly small display diagonal compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec PC screens.
Quite Short Mean Time Between Failures
Across all the comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the 223V5LSB2 the mean time between failures range from 50h to 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 55,000h. The Philips 223V5LSB2 has a fairly short mean time between failures (only 30,000 hours) compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been available for a similar time to the 223V5LSB2.
Fairly High Power Consumption When Off
With a power consumption when off of 0.5 Watts, the Philips 223V5LSB2 has a quite high power consumption when off compared to most of the other recently released medium monitors. The lowest power consumption when off of PC screens that came out around the same time as the 223V5LSB2 is 0.14W and the highest is 350W.
2 Other reasons to consider the Philips 223V5LSB2
Running Costs Are Average
The 223V5LSB2 is typical compared to the other 364 comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for the last year that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 223V5LSB2 will cost £35 over 5 years to run.
LCD Display Type
The 223V5LSB2 has an LCD display type which is better than most new LCD screens. Most new similar spec PC displays have an LED display type.
Other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper PC monitors such as the DELL P2213 (£53.46).
Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might also be worth looking at include the Benq GL2250 (£71.30) (LED), or the Asus VS228DE (£82.52) (LED) which also has a higher rating.
