7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The 231S4 is in the cheapest 20% of all 1,019 medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 231S4 will cost only £56 over 8 years to run.

Reasonably Priced

One person mentioned that the Philips 231S4 was a bargain for the price. Two years ago Sam mentioned on Amazon “Black screen, no image, just noises from poor (probably too cheap) burst capacitors” in his review however he only gave the Philips 231S4 a rating of 20 out of 100.

Robust

One person who reviewed it said that it was reliable. Two years ago Sam wrote “Not a good choice if you want to buy reliable monitor” in his Philips 231S4 review however he only scored the product 20 out of 100.

Philips Has Good PC Screen Reviews

Philips medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all PC screens Philips is one of the superior brands.

Quite Low Power Consumption (off)

Across all the medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the 231S4 the power consumption (off)s range from 0.005W to 21W, and the average power consumption (off) is 0.49W. With a power consumption (off) of only 0.1 Watts, the Philips 231S4's power consumption (off) is one of the lowest amongst LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the 231S4.

Chart Edit

Light

9 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £33.28

The price of the 231S4 has increased by £33.28 in the last 45 days.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years, the Philips 231S4 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC display and we think the Lenovo LT2423[plb_2048296_price], the AOC i2769Vm[plb_1554512_price], or the Philips 241S6QYMB[plb_3027869_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D

Most PC monitors that have been around for more than two years are not 3D. The Philips 231S4 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D then you might also want to look at the Acer GN246HL[plb_2263973_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most similar spec PC displays that were released more than two years ago do not have a built-in camera. The Philips 231S4 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Viewsonic VG2437[plb_2780335_price], the Philips 241P6[plb_2518920_price], or the HP EliteDisplay S231[plb_2198924_price] which also has a higher rating.
