Fairly Long Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)

The mean time between failures (MTBF)s of PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the 231E1SB range from 30h to 70,000h. At 50,000 hours, the 231E1SB has a quite long mean time between failures (MTBF) compared to most of the other LCD screens of a comparable spec and age to the 231E1SB.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 231E1SB does not have a built-in speaker(s), although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 231E1SB also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The 231E1SB is not 3D. Most of the other PC screens of this type and age are also not 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the 231E1SB do not have a built-in camera. The 231E1SB is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider include the Viewsonic VG2437mc[plb_1464473_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

The 231E1SB does not have a card reader integrated. Most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the 231E1SB also do not have a card reader integrated.

It is worth considering other PC displays which also have a card reader integrated including the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], the UP2715K[pl_2678878_price], or the UP3214Q[pl_2251540_price] all from DELL.

4 Other reasons to consider the Philips 231E1SB

Running Costs Are OK

The 231E1SB is typical compared to the other 1,019 similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 231E1SB will cost £79 over 8 years to run.

Released Over Seven Years Ago

It was over seven years ago when Philips released the 231E1SB.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

LCD Display

The 231E1SB has an LCD display which is better than most PC monitors of a comparable age and type to it. Most comparable spec PC monitors that were launched around the same time as it have an LED display.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer V226HQL Bbd[plb_1910007_price].

If you want a PC display with a better display type then you might want to look at the Benq GL2450HM[plb_26668_price] (LED,LCD) which also has a higher rating.
