Chart Edit

Philips Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We checked 463 expert and user reviews for Philips PC monitors and found that on average Philips has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Philips has good reviews specifically within its small monitors range.

Quite Big Viewable Size, Horizontal

The 196V3LSB has one of the bigger viewable size, horizontals (409.8 millimeters) amongst flatpanel monitors of this age. The average viewable size, horizontal of small monitors that were released around the same time as the 196V3LSB is 370mm, and the viewable size, horizontals range from 190mm to 540mm.

Chart Edit


At only 2.1 kilograms, the Philips 196V3LSB is quite light compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar age and type to the 196V3LSB. The lightest LCD screen of a comparable spec and age to the 196V3LSB is 3.3g weight, the heaviest is 19kg, and the average weight is 3.3kg.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 196V3LSB does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC screens of a comparable type and age to the 196V3LSB also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Like most of the other PC displays that were released more than two years ago, the 196V3LSB is not 3D.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D that might also be worth considering include the Neovo C-17 (£106.31), or the Samsung SMT-1934 (£133.00).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most small monitors that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 196V3LSB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the 196V3LSB do not have a card reader integrated. The 196V3LSB is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

It is worth considering other flatpanel monitors which also have a card reader integrated including the Samsung LS20C300 (£69.99).
