+9 More reasons for
Philips has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire LCD screen range.
Has a Built-In Camera
The Philips 241P6 has a built-in camera, which is unusual. Most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and type to the 241P6 do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the Lenovo T2224z (£171.00), and the Philips 221S6QYKMB (£64.99) which is cheaper; or the DELL UZ2315H (£187.25) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Philips 241P6 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 241P6 also have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq RL2755 (£198.00), or the Eizo FlexScan EV2450 (£227.99) which has a better Rating.
We think you might also be interested in other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker including the iiyama XB2783HSU-B1DP (£189.65).
Quite Long Mean Time Between Failures
At 70,000 hours, the Philips 241P6 has a fairly long mean time between failures compared to most of the other PC displays that are a comparable age to the 241P6. Medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 241P6 have mean time between failures of between 30h and 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 42,000h.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many PC screens of this type and age.

The Philips 241P6 is fairly narrow (only 531 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than a year. Across all the LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the 241P6 the widths range from 51mm to 960mm.
If you would consider a flatpanel monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the Philips 241S6 (528mm and cheaper).

20000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The Philips 241P6 has a maximum contrast ratio of 20000000:1. That's over four times the contrast ratio of a 5000000:1 PC monitor, which is the most common contrast ratio.
We compared all the other PC displays that have a 20000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this PC display and we think the 221S6QYKMB (£64.99), and the 231B4QPYCB (£191.45) both from Philips which is cheaper is also worth considering.
