Good Expert Reviews

This flatpanel monitor received a rating of 88 out of 100 from expert review site gadgetspeak.com. If all the PC screens of this spec and age are ranked by average expert review score then this Philips PC monitor is in the top 13%.

Low Running Costs

The 240S4 is one of the more economic to run PC screens of a comparable spec and age that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the 240S4 is only £32.

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

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

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the Philips 240S4 is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels LCD screen, which is the most frequently found display resolution.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption When Off

Across all the medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 240S4 the power consumptions when off range from 0.005W to 45W, and the average power consumption when off is 0.57W. When compared to other PC displays of a comparable age and spec to the 240S4 that we have assessed, the power consumption when off of the Philips 240S4 of only 0.1 Watts is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The Philips 240S4 has a greater number of cables included than most similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago. This PC screen has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 240S4.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The Philips 240S4 has one of the lower power consumptions in economy mode (only 13.4 Watts) amongst comparable spec PC screens of this age. The power consumptions in economy mode of PC screens of this type and age range from 0.5W to 48W.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 240S4 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that are a similar age to the 240S4 also do not have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Philips 272C4QPJKAB[plb_1532812_price]; or the AOC I2460[plb_2045326_price], or the Benq GW2765HT[plb_3034210_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 240S4 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the XL2420[pl_1453626_price], or the XL2411[pl_2130532_price] both from Benq or the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 240S4 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the 240S4 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 272C4QPJKAB[plb_1532812_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Philips 240S4 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 240S4 also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The Philips 240S4 has a fairly small internal memory (only 16 megabytes) compared to most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the 240S4. The average internal memory of PC screens of a similar age and type to the 240S4 is 670MB.

Chart Edit

Very Few Recyclable Material Percentage

With a recyclable material percentage of only 25 percent, the Philips 240S4 has one of the less recyclable material percentages amongst medium monitors of this age. The least recyclable material percentage of LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the 240S4 is 25% and the most is 100%.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

Chart Edit

Only 800 X 600 (SVGA) Graphics Resolution

The Philips 240S4 has a maximum resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA). That's 77% less resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC monitor, which is the most frequently found resolution. This flatpanel monitor also has a graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). The worst resolution of all PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the 240S4 is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.

The Philips 240S4 has a fairly high power consumption when in PowerSave mode (13.4 Watts) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 240S4.

Chart Edit

Only 518.4 X 324mm Display Viewable Area

The biggest display viewable area of the Philips 240S4 is 518.4 x 324mm. That's 31% more display viewable area than a 476.64 x 268.11mm flatpanel monitor, which is the most frequently found display viewable area.

LCD Display Type

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Philips 273E3[plb_1479583_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the iiyama XB2485WSU[plb_1448731_price].

Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might also be worth considering include the XB2780HSU[pl_1370714_price] (LED), the GB2488HSU[pl_2185179_price] (LED), or the GB2773HS[pl_2014648_price] (LED) all from iiyama which also has a higher rating.
