5 Reasons For

LED Display

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

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC screens that have an LED Display currently available including the AOC e2250Swdnk which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The 231B4LPY has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC D2769 is also worth considering.

The 231B4LPY has a greater number of placements than most PC monitors of this spec and age.

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D

Most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years are not 3D. The Philips 231B4LPY is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you want a PC monitor that is 3D then you might also want to look at the AOC d2757Ph which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera which you might want to look at including the Viewsonic VG2437mc which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in other PC monitors which also have a card reader integrated including the U3011, the UP2414Q (£449.00), or the UP3214Q (£598.80) all from DELL which also has a higher rating.
