Philips is one of the superior flatpanel monitor manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Philips also has good reviews for its medium monitors.
LED Display Type
This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this spec and age.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the LG 22M35[plb_2144687_price], and the AOC I2276[plb_2256588_price] is also worth considering.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many comparable spec PC screens that have been available for a similar time to it.
At only 52 millimeters, the 243V5LHSB is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the 243V5LHSB. The depths of LCD screens that were released more than two years ago range from 12mm to 560mm.
+4 More reasons for
The 243V5LHSB is one of the lighter LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago (only 3.2 kilograms) amongst medium monitors of this age. Across all the comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the 243V5LHSB the weights range from 3g to 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.
Quite Fast SmartResponse
The 243V5LHSB has a fairly fast smartResponse (only 1 millisecond) compared to most of the other PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the 243V5LHSB. The average smartResponse of medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 243V5LHSB is 4.1ms, and the smartResponses range from 1ms to 7ms.
Quite Fast Response Time
Medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 243V5LHSB have response times of between 1ms and 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms. With a response time of only 1 millisecond, the 243V5LHSB's response time is one of the fastest amongst PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to the 243V5LHSB.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The 243V5LHSB does not have a built-in speaker, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 243V5LHSB also do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the AOC E2470[plb_1947785_price], the Hanns.G HL226[plb_2187706_price], or the iiyama E2283HS[plb_2323546_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Philips 243V5LHSB is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors of this age and type are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the 243V5LHSB do not have a built-in camera. The 243V5LHSB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors with a built-in camera and we think the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that have been around for more than two years do not have an integrated card reader. The 243V5LHSB is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
+4 More reasons against
Very Short Mean Time Between Failures
Across all the medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 243V5LHSB the mean time between failures range from 30h to 70,000h. With a mean time between failures of only 30 hours, the 243V5LHSB has one of the shorter mean time between failures amongst medium monitors of this age.
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as it.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
The average horizontal viewing angle of medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 243V5LHSB is 170°. With a horizontal viewing angle of only 170 degrees, the 243V5LHSB has a fairly narrow horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the 243V5LHSB.
