6 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This LCD screen has an average expert rating of 71 out of 100 based on three expert reviews from sites including itproportal.com, chip.com.tr and pcworld.pl.

Running Costs Are Very Low

The 221S3 is in the cheapest 5% of all 1,019 similar spec PC displays that were launched more than two years ago that we have looked at for 8 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 8 year running cost of the 221S3 is only £44.

Reasonably Priced

One Philips 221S3 reviewer said in their reviews that it was good value for money. Simon Brown wrote in his review of the Philips 221S3 “Excellent value for money, good picture”.

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on medium monitors that are a similar age to it.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to consider including a cheaper PC screen such as the LG 24M35[plb_2181361_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC screen such as the iiyama B2483HS[plb_2194227_price], or the Acer G237HL[plb_2266292_price].

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens

On average Philips medium monitors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all flatpanel monitors built by Philips.

Quite Low Power Consumption (off)

When compared to other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the 221S3, the Philips 221S3's power consumption (off) of only 0.1 Watts is one of the lowest. The power consumption (off)s of PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 221S3 range from 0.005W to 21W.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other LCD screens that have been available for around the same time as the 221S3, the Philips 221S3 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth also looking at other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the XU2290HS[pl_2134237_price], or the B2280[pl_1520160_price] both from iiyama or the Asus VW22[plb_1584662_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D

The Philips 221S3 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age are also not 3D.

PC monitors which are 3D that might also be worth considering include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], or the Edge10 ES240d Slim[plb_1904863_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years, the Philips 221S3 does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at including the HP EliteDisplay S231[plb_2198924_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Most medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 221S3 do not have a card reader integrated. The Philips 221S3 is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.

Chart Edit

Very Short Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)

With a mean time between failures (MTBF) of only 30 hours, the Philips 221S3 has one of the shorter mean time between failures (MTBF)s amongst PC screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Viewable Size, Vertical

PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years have viewable size, verticals of between 100mm and 630mm.

Chart Edit
