Expert Reviews Are Average

This flatpanel monitor has an average expert rating of 78 out of 100 based on six expert reviews from sites including altomdata.dk, gadgetspeak.com, pcforalla.idg.se and techno-labs.com.

Good Value for Money

Techno-labs.com highlighted in their review that this Philips flatpanel monitor provided a good bang for your buck.

Reasonably Priced

One customer who reviewed the product reckoned that it was good value for money. Chip.com.my said three years ago “Its asking price may seem a little steep”.

Has a Built-In Camera

The Philips 231C5 has a built-in camera, unlike most of the other similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the 231C5 which do not have a built-in camera.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC displays with a built-in camera currently available including the Asus MK241[plb_2332619_price], the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price], or the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display[plb_1794077_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the Philips 231C5 has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Philips Has Good PC Monitor Reviews

Chart

Very Wide Viewing Angle, Vertical

The Philips 231C5 has a fairly wide viewing angle, vertical (178 degrees) compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and type. Across all the medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the 231C5 the viewing angle, verticals range from 15° to 180°, and the average viewing angle, vertical is 170°.

Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Viewing Angle, Horizontal

At 178 degrees, the Philips 231C5 has a quite wide viewing angle, horizontal compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been available for around the same time as the 231C5. Across all the similar spec LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the 231C5 the viewing angle, horizontals range from -5° to 1,800°, and the average viewing angle, horizontal is 170°.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports Quantitys

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D

The Philips 231C5 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC displays of this type and age are also not 3D.

PC screens which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the Asus VG23AH[plb_1411330_price], the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Benq XL2411T[plb_1522088_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 231C5, the Philips 231C5 does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a card reader integrated and we think the U3011[pl_1534149_price], the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the UP2715K[pl_2678878_price] all from DELL which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)

Similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 231C5 have mean time between failures (MTBF)s of between 30h and 70,000h. The Philips 231C5 has one of the shorter mean time between failures (MTBF)s (only 30 hours) amongst PC displays of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This flatpanel monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many LCD screens of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

The display brightnesss of PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the 231C5 range from 25 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m².

Quite High Power Consumption (active)

Chart Edit

The response times of medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 231C5 range from 1ms to 69ms.

4 Other reasons to consider the Philips 231C5

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

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

Chart Edit

LCD Display

The Philips 231C5 has a better display type than most flatpanel monitors of this age and type. This Philips PC display has an LCD display, whereas most LCD screens of this age and spec have an LED display.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think the Benq BL2411[plb_1541459_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC monitor with a better display type then you might also want to consider the Samsung S27A850[plb_1388314_price] (LED), or the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price] (LED) which also has a higher rating.
