2 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the 220B1CS has a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the AOC D2769.

Philips PC Screens Have Good Reviews

We checked 463 owner and expert reviews for Philips PC displays and found that on average Philips has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Philips has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

8 Reasons Against

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Ports Quantity

Most PC screens of this spec and age have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports quantitys, including the 220B1CS which has one USB Type-A downstream ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years, the 220B1CS is not 3D.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might also want to look at the AOC d2757Ph.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most LCD screens of a similar type and age to the 220B1CS do not have a built-in camera. The 220B1CS is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Viewsonic VG2437mc.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Like most of the other PC monitors of this type and age, the 220B1CS does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a card reader integrated to this flatpanel monitor and we think the U3011 (£899.99), the UP2414Q (£449.00), or the UP3214Q (£598.80) all from DELL is also worth considering.

When compared to other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec that we have assessed the height adjustment of, the Philips 220B1CS's height adjustment of only 70 millimeters is one of the lowest.
