10 Reasons For

£45.00 Price Drop

The price of the 272B4 has dropped by £45.00 in the last 58 days.

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens

We calculated the average reviews for all Philips flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good reviews.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC displays of a similar age and type to it.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the Philips 241P6[plb_2518920_price], and the Neovo FM-24[plb_3011241_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other LCD screens that were launched around the same time as the 272B4, the Philips 272B4 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama GB2788HS[plb_3102729_price] which has better reviews; or the Neovo FM-27[plb_3011242_price], and the HP Pavilion 27c[plb_2897917_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
