Reasonably Priced

One person mentioned that the Philips 231S4 was a bargain for the price. Two years ago Sam mentioned on Amazon “Black screen, no image, just noises from poor (probably too cheap) burst capacitors” in his review however he only gave the Philips 231S4 a rating of 20 out of 100.

Robust

One person who reviewed it said that it was reliable. Two years ago Sam wrote “Not a good choice if you want to buy reliable monitor” in his Philips 231S4 review however he only scored the product 20 out of 100.

Good Brand

On average Philips medium monitors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all PC monitors built by Philips.

Quite Low Power Consumption When Off

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the LG 22EB23[plb_1553983_price], the AOC I2260PWHU[plb_3053440_price], or the HP Pavilion 23[plb_2680590_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
