3 Reasons For

Philips Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Philips flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good reviews compared to other brands.

Fairly Long Mean Time Between Failures

Medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years have mean time between failures of between 30h and 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 33,000h. The 231E1SB has a fairly long mean time between failures (50,000 hours) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Mode

This PC display has a 1080p video mode, which is the most commonly found video mode on flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The 231E1SB does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the 231E1SB also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 231E1SB is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other PC monitors of a similar spec and age to the 231E1SB are also not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors 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.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the 231E1SB do not have a built-in camera. The 231E1SB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and spec to the 231E1SB, the Philips 231E1SB does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative 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] which is also higher rated.

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.

Other PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Planar PLL2210W[plb_1809826_price], or the Eizo ColorEdge CX270[plb_1724638_price].
