3 Reasons For

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

Medium monitors produced by Philips have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC displays (not just medium monitors) and found that Philips also has good ratings across its entire range.

Quite Long Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)

The mean time between failures (MTBF)s of PC monitors of this age and type range from 30h to 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures (MTBF) is 35,000h. At 50,000 hours, the 220C1SB/05 has a fairly long mean time between failures (MTBF) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a comparable type and age to the 220C1SB/05.

Chart Edit

Very Fast SmartResponse

With a smartResponse of only 2 milliseconds, the 220C1SB/05 has one of the faster smartResponses amongst medium monitors of this age. The fastest smartResponse of LCD screens of this spec and age is 1ms and the slowest is 7ms.

7 Reasons Against

Average Expert Reviews

Expert review website scored this flatpanel monitor 67%.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most PC screens of a similar spec and age to the 220C1SB/05 do not have a built-in speaker(s). The Philips 220C1SB/05 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the 22MT45D[pl_2231034_price], or the 23CAT42K[pl_1569047_price] both from LG or the Fujitsu B24W-7[plb_2473880_price] which is also higher rated.

Not 3D

Most similar spec LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago are not 3D. The 220C1SB/05 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

PC screens which are 3D that might also be worth looking at include the Philips 272G5DYEB/93[plb_3175233_price], or the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 220C1SB/05, the 220C1SB/05 does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera including the Viewsonic VG2437mc[plb_1464473_price], or the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price].

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 220C1SB/05 do not have a card reader integrated. The 220C1SB/05 is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

Alternative PC screens which also have a card reader integrated that you might also want to consider include the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], the UP2715K[pl_2678878_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL which also has a higher rating.

Only 1680 X 1050 Pixels Display Resolution

That's 15% less display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels flatpanel monitor, which is the most frequently found display resolution. The best display resolution of all LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the 220C1SB/05 is 3440 x 1440 pixels and the worst is 1366 x 768 pixels.

3 Other reasons to consider the Philips 220C1SB/05

Running Costs Are Average

The 220C1SB/05 has an average 8 year running cost of £59 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 1,019 flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec.

Released Over Seven Years Ago

This flatpanel monitor has been on the market for over seven years.

LCD Display

The 220C1SB/05 has an LCD display which is better than most PC monitors of this type and age. Most PC displays that were released more than two years ago have an LED display.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display to this LCD screen and we think the Panasonic PLCD24HD[plb_1858471_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC display with a better display type then you might want to look at the Benq GL2450HM[plb_26668_price] (LED,LCD and higher rated), or the LG 27MP55HQ[plb_2304964_price] (LED and higher rated).
