10 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Very Low
This PC display is rated A for energy efficiency. The 227E6 is in the cheapest 4% of all 486 medium monitors that have been around for more than a year that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the 227E6 is only £28.
Medium monitors built 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.
Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
The narrowest vertical viewing angle of medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago is 10°, the widest is 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°. At 178 degrees, the Philips 227E6 has a fairly wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 227E6.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many medium monitors that were released more than a year ago.
The Philips 227E6 is fairly narrow (only 511 millimeters) compared to most of the other PC screens that are a similar age to the 227E6. The widths of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 227E6 range from 51mm to 960mm.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to look at the Samsung S22D300 (£99.00) (511.6mm).
At only 318 millimeters, the Philips 227E6 is quite short compared to most of the other PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the 227E6. The shortest flatpanel monitor of this type and age is 36mm tall and the tallest is 930mm.
+5 More reasons for
Very Low Power Consumption When Active
The average power consumption when active of medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 227E6 is 27W, and the power consumptions when active range from 14W to 69W. At only 15.52 Watts, the Philips 227E6 has a fairly low power consumption when active compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 227E6.
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
At only 31 kilowatt hours, the Philips 227E6 has a fairly low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than a year ago. The annual energy consumptions of PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the 227E6 range from 22kWh to 29,000kWh.
The average weight of similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 227E6 is 4.9kg, and the weights range from 2.3g to 79kg. At only 2.6 kilograms, the Philips 227E6 is quite light compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released one year ago.
When compared to other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec that we have assessed, the Philips 227E6's depth of only 36 millimeters is one of the shallowest. The depths of medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 227E6 range from 15mm to 700mm.
12 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other LCD screens of this type and age have a built-in speaker, however the Philips 227E6 does not have a built-in speaker.
It is worth also looking at alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Philips 226V4LAB (£79.98) which also has a higher Rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Philips 227E6 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC monitors of this type and age also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that are a similar age to the 227E6 are not 3D compatible. The Philips 227E6 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the 227E6, the Philips 227E6 does not have an integrated card reader.
+9 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on medium monitors that were released more than a year ago.
Very Small Viewable Height
With a viewable height of only 268.1 millimeters, the Philips 227E6 has a quite small viewable height compared to most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 227E6. The average viewable height of medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 227E6 is 320mm.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many LCD screens of this type and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including the HP Z23i (£220.80), or the Philips 226V4LAB (£79.98) which has a better Rating.
Very Small Display Diagonal
Across all the flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than a year the screen sizes range from 48cm to 110cm, and the average display diagonal is 64cm. The Philips 227E6 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 54.6 centimeters) amongst medium monitors of this age.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year.
Quite Small Viewable Width
The Philips 227E6 has a quite small viewable width (only 476.6 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 227E6. The smallest viewable width of similar spec PC displays that have been available for a comparable time to the 227E6 is 280mm, the biggest is 880mm, and the average viewable width is 530mm.
Only 476.6 X 268.1mm Effective Viewing Area
The Philips 227E6 has a maximum effective viewing area of 476.6 x 268.1mm. That's 12% less effective viewing area than the most frequently found effective viewing area of 509.18 x 286.41mm.
This PC display's effective viewing area (476.6 x 268.1mm) is actually the worst effective viewing area across all similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to the 227E6.
The best effective viewing area amongst comparable types of PC display is 509.18 x 286.41mm.
Quite Slow Response Time
The Philips 227E6 has one of the slowest response times (14 milliseconds) amongst comparable spec LCD screens of this age. PC monitors of this spec and age have response times of between 1ms and 40ms, and the average response time is 5.8ms.
3 Other reasons to consider the Philips 227E6
Released Over a Year Ago
Philips released the 227E6 over a year ago.
LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC displays of a similar age and type to it.
Alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the HP Z23i (£220.80), or the Philips 226V4LAB (£79.98).
20000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Philips 227E6 is 20000000:1. That's over four times the contrast ratio of a 5000000:1 flatpanel monitor, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio.
If you are looking for a PC display with a higher contrast ratio then you might also want to look at the Acer K222HQL (£97.54) (100000000:1) which also has a higher rating.
