Philips Has Good PC Monitor Reviews

Fairly Long Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)

The 201E1SB has one of the longer mean time between failures (MTBF)s (50,000 hours) amongst LCD screens of this age. The mean time between failures (MTBF)s of medium monitors that came out more than two years ago range from 30h to 70,000h.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 201E1SB does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other LCD screens that have been available for a comparable time to the 201E1SB also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the iiyama XB2779QS-W1[plb_1954340_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

There are a number of other PC displays which also have a card reader integrated which you might also want to consider including the U3011[pl_1534149_price], the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL which is also higher rated.
