5 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Excellent

This PC display received a score of 90% from PC monitor expert review website That puts this Philips LCD screen in the top 9% of all the PC displays of this age and type.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The 225B2CB has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Viewsonic VX2370SMH (£97.21) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D

The Philips 225B2CB is not 3D. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 225B2CB are also not 3D.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC screens of this age and spec do not have a built-in camera. The 225B2CB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the Philips 231C5, or the Asus MK241 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a card reader integrated that you might also want to look at including the U3011 (£899.99), or the UP2414Q (£449.00) both from DELL which is also higher rated.
