8 Reasons For
Low Running Costs
This PC screen is rated B for energy efficiency, however the 243V5LHSB has an average 5 year running cost of only £33 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 13% of all 795 medium monitors that have been available for more than two years.
LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that are a comparable age to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Hanns.G HL226 (£89.99), the Viewsonic VA2214, or the Samsung S23B350.
Philips PC Screens Have Good Reviews
Philips medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all LCD screens Philips is one of the superior brands.
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 medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
With a depth of only 52 millimeters, the 243V5LHSB is quite shallow compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar age and spec to the 243V5LHSB. The average depth of PC screens of this age and type is 110mm.
Across all the PC screens of this type and age the weights range from 3g to 39kg. The 243V5LHSB is one of the lighter similar spec PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the 243V5LHSB (only 3.2 kilograms) amongst comparable spec flatpanel monitors of this age.
+3 More reasons for
Quite Fast SmartResponse
Medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 243V5LHSB have smartResponses of between 1ms and 7ms, and the average smartResponse is 4.2ms. When compared to other similar spec PC monitors that were released more than two years ago, the smartResponse of the 243V5LHSB of only 1 millisecond is one of the fastest.
Quite Fast Response Time
The fastest response time of similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years is 1ms, the slowest is 69ms, and the average response time is 6.2ms. When compared to other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 243V5LHSB that we have checked, the 243V5LHSB's response time of only 1 millisecond is one of the fastest.
8 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £21.49
In the last few weeks the price of the 243V5LHSB has increased by £21.49.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The 243V5LHSB does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 243V5LHSB do have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama E2273HDS (£104.99); or the Benq GW2765HT (£269.99) are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The 243V5LHSB is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 243V5LHSB are also not 3D compatible.
Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Lenovo E2323 (£91.86) or the HP LP2065 (£110.40).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most PC screens of this type and age do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 243V5LHSB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
Alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the HP Compaq LA2206 (£83.99) which is also cheaper.
+5 More reasons against
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The 243V5LHSB does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth noting that most of the other LCD screens of this type and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many PC monitors of a comparable type and age to it.
Very Short Mean Time Between Failures
At only 30 hours, the 243V5LHSB has a quite short mean time between failures compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been around for a similar time to the 243V5LHSB. Medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 243V5LHSB have mean time between failures of between 30h and 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 32,000h.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it.
