12 Reasons For

The 244E5 is in the cheapest 13% of all 998 flatpanel monitors that were launched more than two years ago that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the 244E5 is only £33.

Reasonably Priced

One Philips 244E5 reviewer who reviewed this PC monitor thought it was cheap. Expertreviews.co.uk said in their review of this PC monitor on Expert Reviews “A competent budget IPS screen for those not too fussed about design” but they gave it a rating of 60 out of 100.

Good Product Quality

One customer wrote in their reviews that it was good quality. Expertreviews.co.uk said on expert review site Expert Reviews “Although we were impressed by the overall quality of the screen, colour accuracy left a little to be desired”.

Philips Has Good PC Display Reviews

The narrowest vertical viewing angle of medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 244E5 is 50° and the widest is 180°.

8 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

PC monitor expert review website Expert Reviews scored this PC display 60%. This means that PC monitor experts really don't rate this LCD screen very highly.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most comparable spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the 244E5 do not have a built-in speaker. The Philips 244E5 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the B2481HS[pl_1464484_price], or the E2480HS[pl_1437284_price] both from iiyama or the AOC I2473[plb_2254441_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 244E5 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the XB240H[pl_2719156_price], or the GN246HL[pl_2263973_price] both from Acer or the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most flatpanel monitors of this age and spec do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 244E5 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] or the Lenovo LT2323[plb_2402544_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 244E5, the Philips 244E5 does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Very Short Mean Time Between Failures

Across all the flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the 244E5 the mean time between failures range from 30h to 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 33,000h. The Philips 244E5 has a quite short mean time between failures (only 30 hours) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the 244E5.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many LCD screens that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Display Brightness

4 Other reasons to consider the Philips 244E5

Released Over Three Years Ago

Philips released the 244E5 over three years ago.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display Type

The Philips 244E5 has a better display type than most flatpanel monitors of this age and spec. This PC screen has an LCD display type, whereas most medium monitors that are a similar age to it have an LED display type.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including the iiyama B2280WSD-B1[plb_1378652_price], the Acer 276HL[plb_2032289_price], or the HP ProDisplay P221[plb_1604027_price] which has better reviews.

If the display type of this medium monitor is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Asus VS239[plb_1386925_price] (LED), the LG 24MP56[plb_2195715_price] (LED), or the iiyama GE2488HS[plb_2365276_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.

Average Width

With a width of 557 millimeters, the Philips 244E5 has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 244E5.

We compared all the other 557mm wide LCD screens to this LCD screen and we think the Philips 247E4[plb_1482822_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
