The average 5 year running cost of the 231B4LPY is only £26 based on typical energy prices, which is in the cheapest 2% of all 998 medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years.

Good Brand

Medium monitors built by Philips have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all flatpanel monitors (not just medium monitors) and found that Philips also has good reviews across its entire range.

Chart Edit

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 PC monitors that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement

The number of placements supported by the 231B4LPY is more than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. The most frequently supported placement is Horizontal, but this placement is not supported by this flatpanel monitor. The placements Horizontal/Vertical are also supported by this PC screen.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The 231B4LPY is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the 231B4LPY are also not 3D compatible.

PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years do not have an integrated card reader. The 231B4LPY is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price].
