4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The 201BL2C is in the cheapest 4% of all 993 medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the 201BL2C is only £28.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 201BL2C has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the AOC D2769 which has better reviews.

Quite Low Power Consumption (off)

The power consumption (off)s of LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the 201BL2C range from 0.005W to 21W, and the average power consumption (off) is 0.5W. The 201BL2C has a very low power consumption (off) (only 0.1 Watts) compared to most of the other LCD screens of this age and type.

10 Reasons Against

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Ports Quantity

Most LCD screens of a similar age and type to the 201BL2C have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports quantitys, including the 201BL2C which has one USB Type-A downstream ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Most comparable spec PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the 201BL2C are not 3D. The Philips 201BL2C is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D then you might want to consider the AOC d2757Ph which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 201BL2C does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other LCD screens that came out around the same time as the 201BL2C also do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to look at including the Viewsonic VG2437mc which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most PC monitors that have been around for more than two years do not have a card reader integrated. The Philips 201BL2C is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a card reader integrated and we think the U3011, the UP2414Q (£449.00), or the UP3214Q (£598.80) all from DELL which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
