7 Reasons For

Price Drop of £15.17

The 231B4 has dropped in price by £15.17 in the last fortnight.

Good Brand

Philips medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC monitors Philips is one of the superior brands.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC monitors of a comparable age and type to it.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC monitor such as the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price], and the Neovo SC-22[plb_2247338_price] or you might consider a better rated PC monitor such as the Benq GW2750[plb_2446079_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 231B4 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other PC displays of this type and age do not have a built-in speaker.

Alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Eizo FlexScan EV2216[plb_1927019_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the Benq BL2410[plb_1463501_price], or the Asus PB238[plb_2368528_price].
