5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 225B2CB does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 225B2CB also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the 241P4QPY, or the 231C5 (£429.96) both from Philips which is also higher rated.
