Very Low Running Costs

The 221B6QPYEB is in the cheapest 2% of all 998 comparable spec PC displays that have been around for more than two years that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 221B6QPYEB will cost only £26 over 5 years to run.

Released Over Two Years Ago

Philips released the 221B6QPYEB over two years ago.

Good Brand

Philips is one of the better rated flatpanel monitor brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Philips also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the AOC e2250Swdnk (£79.99) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 221B6QPYEB which do not have a built-in speaker, the 221B6QPYEB has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the LG IPS231P which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips 221B6QPYEB is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the 221B6QPYEB, the 221B6QPYEB does not have a built-in camera.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The 221B6QPYEB does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other PC screens of a comparable type and age to the 221B6QPYEB also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413 (£199), or the U2713H (£349) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£185.51) which also has a higher rating.

PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the 221B6QPYEB have mean time between failures of between 30h and 70,000h, and the average mean time between failures is 33,000h.

Narrow

The 221B6QPYEB is one of the narrower LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the 221B6QPYEB (only 511 millimeters) amongst medium monitors of this age. Medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the 221B6QPYEB have widths of between 52mm and 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 511mm wide LCD screens currently available including the Philips 221TE5LB/00, or the Eizo FlexScan SX2262W which has better reviews.

Other PC monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Samsung S22B300 (£123.99) (511mm).
