Reasons For

LG 23MP47HQ-P Philips 243V5
1 Reason For
Better Brand
LG PC monitors have an average rating of 84.9%, however Philips has an average rating of 81.6%.
4 Reasons For
Marginally Bigger Display Diagonal
The Philips 243V5 has a display diagonal of 23.6", whereas the LG 23MP47HQ-P is only a 23" PC monitor (0.6" smaller).

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Read more Read less | Edit
Four Times Faster Response Time
The Philips 243V5 is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 4ms faster than the LG 23MP47HQ-P (5ms).

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Philips 243V5 has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the LG 23MP47HQ-P does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.
