6 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the 240B4 is only £33, which is in the cheapest 14% of all 998 PC monitors of this type and age.

Philips LCD Screens Have Good Reviews

Philips medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all LCD screens Philips is one of the better rated brands.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The Philips 240B4 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than the most frequently found display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display resolution of all medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 240B4 ranges from 1366 x 768 pixels to 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Mode

This PC screen has a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many similar spec PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Philips 240B4 has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 11% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). Across all comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 240B4 the resolution ranges from 640 x 350 (worst) to 3840 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Low Maximum Power Consumption

The average maximum power consumption of medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 240B4 is 52W, and the maximum power consumptions range from 5.4W to 250W.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 240B4, the Philips 240B4 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Wortmann AG Terra 2455W[plb_1903977_price]; or the Acer G246HY[plb_2150838_price] are also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 240B4 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], the Acer XB240H[plb_2719156_price], or the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC displays that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 240B4 do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 240B4 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Philips 240B4 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 240B4 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle

With a horizontal viewing angle of only 160 degrees, the Philips 240B4 has a quite narrow horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC monitors of this age and type. Medium monitors that were released more than two years ago have horizontal viewing angles of between 60° and 1,800°.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Mean Time Between Failures

Across all the PC displays of this type and age the mean time between failures range from 30h to 70,000h. When compared to other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the mean time between failures of the Philips 240B4 of only 30 hours is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Quite Few Recyclable Material Percentage

The Philips 240B4 has a quite few recyclable material percentage (only 25 percent) compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar age and spec to the 240B4. The recyclable material percentages of PC displays of this type and age range from 25% to 100%, and the average recyclable material percentage is 77%.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

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

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption When in PowerSave Mode

The Philips 240B4 has a quite high power consumption when in PowerSave mode (13.4 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the 240B4. Comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for a similar time to the 240B4 have power consumptions when in PowerSave mode of between 0.14W and 80W.

Chart Edit

Only 518.4 X 324mm Display Viewable Area

The Philips 240B4 has a maximum display viewable area of 518.4 x 324mm. That's 31% more display viewable area than the most common display viewable area of 476.64 x 268.11mm.

A 518.4 x 324mm display viewable area is in fact the best display viewable area across all PC displays of this age and spec.

A 376.3 x 301.1mm display viewable area is the worst display viewable area amongst similar types of flatpanel monitor.

3 Other reasons to consider the Philips 240B4

Released Over Three Years Ago

Philips released the 240B4 over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The Philips 240B4 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the 276HL[pl_2032289_price], or the V236HL[pl_1604471_price] both from Acer which has better reviews.

If the display type of this PC screen is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the VS239[pl_1386925_price] (LED and higher rated), or the PB238[pl_2368528_price] (LED and higher rated) both from Asus or the iiyama XU2390HS[plb_2204569_price] (LED and higher rated).

Average Width

With a width of 555 millimeters, the Philips 240B4 has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 240B4.

Alternative PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Philips 236V4L[plb_1447373_price] (549mm).
