5 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Low
The average 5 year running cost of the 240V5QDSB is only £34 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is in the cheapest 13% of all 486 PC monitors of this age and spec.
We calculated the average reviews for all Philips PC displays and specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good reviews compared to other brands.
Quite Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
The 240V5QDSB has one of the wider vertical viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst PC screens of this age. LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the 240V5QDSB have vertical viewing angles of between 10° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The 240V5QDSB has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar type and age to the 240V5QDSB. The average horizontal viewing angle of PC displays that are a similar age to the 240V5QDSB is 170°.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on medium monitors that have been available for more than a year.
10 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The 240V5QDSB does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens of this age and type do have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Samsung S24E510C (£129.97); or the Asus VN248 (£102.81).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Philips 240V5QDSB does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than a year also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the Viewsonic VG2437 (£163.84) is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The 240V5QDSB is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors of this type and age are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar age and type to the 240V5QDSB, the Philips 240V5QDSB does not have an integrated card reader.
+7 More reasons against
Only LCD Display Type
The Philips 240V5QDSB has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.
An LCD display type is actually the worst display type amongst all medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 240V5QDSB.
Amongst comparable types of LCD screen the best display type is LED.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC screens that have an LCD Display currently available including cheaper PC screens such as the AOC E2460SD2 (£99.99).
LCD screens with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the Asus VC239H (£115.80) (LED and higher rated).
Only HD HD Type
This PC display has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this spec and age.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many PC screens of a comparable age and type to it.
Other flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available which you might also want to consider include the Asus VC239H (£115.80) which has a better Rating; or the Viewsonic VA2265SH (£99.00) which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a PC screen with a more display resolution then you might also want to look at the Acer G247HYL (£89.99) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper); or the HP Z24i (£92.39) (1920 x 1200 and higher rated).
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to it.
Only One HDMI Port
The 240V5QDSB is a one HDMI port PC display. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and three HDMI ports.
Fairly High Power Consumption When Off
With a power consumption when off of 0.5 Watts, the Philips 240V5QDSB has one of the higher power consumptions when off amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 240V5QDSB the power consumptions when off range from 0.0005W to 1.2W.
3 Other reasons to consider the Philips 240V5QDSB
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Philips released the 240V5QDSB.
10000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The 240V5QDSB has a maximum contrast ratio of 10000000:1. That's over two times the contrast ratio of a 5000000:1 PC monitor, which is the most common contrast ratio.
It may also be worth considering one of the other PC displays that have a 10000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including the HP Pavilion 24xw (£134.99), or the Philips 226V4LAB (£79.98) which has a better Rating.
If the contrast ratio of this LCD screen is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the iiyama X2481HS-B1 (£113.98) (12000000:1) which also has a higher rating.
At 553 millimeters, the 240V5QDSB has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 240V5QDSB.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 553mm wide LCD screens currently available including the HKC 2265A (£91.97) which is cheaper.
Other LCD screens with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Asus VN248 (£102.81) (554.5mm and cheaper).
