10 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The reviewer at Almodi.org concluded that this PC display was carefully designed and gave it their "Design Award".

Expert Reviews Are Average

This flatpanel monitor has an average expert rating of 72% based on seven expert reviews from sites including Techradar, 01net.com, Les Numeriques.com and pcmweb.nl.

Reasonably Priced

A few Philips 239C4 owners wrote that it was cheap. Flatpanelshd.com said “Philips Blade 2 review Philips Blade 2 - or 239C4QHSB – is a new inexpensive monitor based on the IPS panel technology” in their review. Flatpanelshd.com also wrote “Philips Blade 2 - or 239C4QHSB – is the latest in the line of inexpensive IPS based monitors”.

One Philips 239C4 reviewer who reviewed this PC monitor concluded that it was a bargain for the price. Expert website Flatpanelshd.com wrote in their review of the Philips 239C4 “Philips aims to challenge the cheap TN based monitors available today with a low-cost alternative, just like AOC has done with its I235”.

One customer said in their reviews that the product was good value for money. Uk.hardware.info mentioned three years ago “Either you could get an affordable screen with a TN panel, or an extremely expensive yet superior one with IPS panel” in their review of this PC monitor.

Good Size

One customer thought the product was thin. Expert review site Flatpanelshd.com wrote in their review of this PC monitor “It is extremely thin, measuring just 12.5 mm in depth, due to the edge LED backlight”.

Philips Has Good PC Display Reviews

On average Philips medium monitors have good ratings as do all PC displays built by Philips.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 239C4 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Philips 239C4 is a two HDMI port PC screen. Most of the other PC displays of this age and spec have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

This PC monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most commonly found graphics resolution on medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 2.1 kilograms, the Philips 239C4 is very light compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this type and age. The weights of PC displays that were released more than two years ago range from 3g to 39kg.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The average depth of medium monitors that are a similar age to the 239C4 is 110mm. The Philips 239C4 is very shallow (only 34 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec PC displays that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 239C4 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the 239C4 are also not 3D compatible.

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

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 239C4 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Philips 239C4 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 239C4 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on PC monitors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption When Active

PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the 239C4 have power consumptions when active of between 9W and 63W. At 28.5 Watts, the Philips 239C4 has a fairly high power consumption when active compared to most of the other LCD screens of a comparable type and age to the 239C4.

Chart Edit

Very Short Cable Length

Similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the 239C4 have cable lengths of between 0.88m and 9m. At only 1.2 meters, the Philips 239C4 has a fairly short cable length compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Philips 239C4

Average Running Costs

This flatpanel monitor is rated C for energy efficiency. Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 239C4 will cost £48 over 5 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 998 LCD screens of a comparable age and spec.

Chart

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Philips released the 239C4.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The Philips 239C4 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most medium monitors that came out around the same time as it.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display and we think because of it's better review score, the Eizo ColorEdge CX240[plb_1815196_price], and the Acer B296CL[plb_1728195_price] is also worth considering.

If the display type of this Philips PC display is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the e2250Swdnk[pl_1364842_price] (LED and higher rated), or the i2476[pl_2279049_price] (LED and higher rated) both from AOC.
