6 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the C221S3UCW is only £19 over 5 years based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the most economic to run flatpanel monitors of this age and type.

Philips Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

Philips medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC screens Philips is one of the superior manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC monitors 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 PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including the LG 22MP65[plb_2196010_price] which is cheaper; or the VS239[pl_1386925_price], or the PB238[pl_2368528_price] both from Asus which has better reviews.

Short

With a height of only 323 millimeters, the C221S3UCW is one of the shorter PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the C221S3UCW amongst medium monitors of this age. Flatpanel monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the C221S3UCW have heights of between 41mm and 4,800mm.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The widths of comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the C221S3UCW range from 52mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm. With a width of only 507 millimeters, the C221S3UCW is one of the narrower PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the C221S3UCW amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 507mm wide PC displays currently available including the 221B3LPC[pl_1390791_price], or the 221S3[pl_1529756_price] both from Philips which is cheaper.

PC screens with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the Acer B226[plb_1538972_price] (505.7mm).

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the Philips 221B3LPC[plb_1390791_price], or the LG 24MB35[plb_2172643_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
