Owner Reviews Are Good
The average owner rating of this medium monitor is 89 out of 100 based on 16 owner reviews.
Philips Has Good PC Monitor Reviews
Philips has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC screen range.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The 273E3LHSB has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other latest medium monitors.
At 178 degrees, the 273E3LHSB has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last year. The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of new medium monitors is 89°, the widest is 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°.
Quite Big Display Diagonal
Across all the medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 273E3LHSB the screen sizes range from 52cm to 690cm, and the average display diagonal is 68cm. With a display diagonal of 68.6 centimeters, the Philips 273E3LHSB has a quite big display diagonal compared to most of the other PC monitors that are a comparable age to the 273E3LHSB.
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 similar spec PC displays that are a comparable age to it.
1200:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
The highest typical contrast ratio of the Philips 273E3LHSB is 1200:1. That's 20% more typical contrast ratio than a 1000:1 PC display, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio. The worst typical contrast ratio of all medium monitors that have been available for the last year is 600:1 and the best is 3000:1.
Quite Fast Response Time
Across all the comparable spec LCD screens that were released in the last year the response times range from 1ms to 20ms, and the average response time is 5.2ms. With a response time of only 3.5 milliseconds, the 273E3LHSB has one of the faster response times amongst PC displays of this age.
Very Fast SmartResponse
The smartResponses of comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to the 273E3LHSB range from 1ms to 6ms, and the average smartResponse is 4.5ms. At only 1 millisecond, the Philips 273E3LHSB has a fairly fast smartResponse compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 273E3LHSB.
8 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The 273E3LHSB is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 273E3LHSB are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most medium monitors that are a similar age to the 273E3LHSB do not have a built-in camera. The 273E3LHSB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other latest medium monitors, the 273E3LHSB does not have an integrated card reader.
We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413 (£275.00) is also worth considering.
Only LCD Display Type
The 273E3LHSB has a better display type than most PC displays that came out in the last 12 months. This PC display has an LCD display type, whereas most recently released medium monitors have an LED display type.
An LCD display type is in fact the worst display type amongst all new medium monitors.
Amongst comparable types of PC screen the best display type is LED.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative PC screens that have an LCD Display currently available including the VX2276-smhd (£119.98), or the VX2376-smhd (£137.34) both from Viewsonic or the Asus VP247TA (£139.99) which has a better Rating.
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including the Acer S242HL (£149.94), the iiyama E2282HV (£107.16), or the Samsung S24F350FHU (£118.97) which has a better Rating.
PC screens with a more display resolution that might also be worth considering include the Benq ZOWIE RL2455 (£139.98) (1920 x 1200), the Philips 240S4QYMB (£245.56) (1920 x 1200), or the DELL U2413 (£275.00) (1920 x 1200) which also has a higher rating.
Only One HDMI Port
The 273E3LHSB is a one HDMI port PC monitor.
With a weight of 6.5 kilograms, the Philips 273E3LHSB is one of the heavier new medium monitors amongst medium monitors of this age. The weights of recently released similar spec PC monitors range from 2.6g to 33kg, and the average weight is 4.8kg.
3 Other reasons to consider the Philips 273E3LHSB
Running Costs Are Average
This Philips PC monitor is rated B for energy efficiency, and the 273E3LHSB has an average 5 year running cost of £36 based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 371 recently released similar spec LCD screens.
Released Ten Months Ago
It was ten months ago when Philips released the 273E3LHSB.
20000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The 273E3LHSB has a maximum contrast ratio of 20000000:1. That's 80% less contrast ratio than a 100000000:1 PC monitor, which is the most common contrast ratio.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays that have a 20000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and we think because of it's better review score, the 247E6QDAD (£121.38), and the 220S4LYCB both from Philips or the Fujitsu E22T-7 Pro (£122.80) is also worth considering.
If the contrast ratio of this LCD screen is too low for you then you might also want to consider the I2281FWH (£110.34) (50000000:1), the E2775SJ (£146.42) (50000000:1), or the I2481FXH (£128.40) (50000000:1) all from AOC which also has a higher Rating.
