7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 244E5 will cost only £50 over 8 years to run, which makes it one of the cheaper to run medium monitors that came out more than two years ago.

Reasonably Priced

One Philips 244E5 reviewer who reviewed this PC monitor reckoned that it was cheap. Expert review site Expertreviews.co.uk said “A competent budget IPS screen for those not too fussed about design” in their Philips 244E5 review.

Good Product Quality

One Philips 244E5 reviewer reckoned that the product was good quality. Expert website Expertreviews.co.uk mentioned “Although we were impressed by the overall quality of the screen, colour accuracy left a little to be desired” however despite that they only scored it 60 out of 100.

Good Brand

Based on 465 expert and owner reviews, Philips has good ratings for its flatpanel monitors. Philips also has good ratings specifically for its medium monitors.

Very Wide Viewing Angle, Vertical

The viewing angle, verticals of medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 244E5 range from 15° to 180°. At 178 degrees, the Philips 244E5 has a quite wide viewing angle, vertical compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption (off)

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review website Expert Reviews scored this flatpanel monitor 60 out of 100. It seems that experts really don't rate this PC monitor very highly.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most PC displays of a similar age and spec to the 244E5 do not have a built-in speaker(s). The Philips 244E5 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the 22MB65[pl_2245646_price], or the 24MB35[pl_2172643_price] both from LG or the NEC AccuSync AS222[plb_1586454_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

Like most of the other PC screens of this age and spec, the Philips 244E5 is not 3D.

PC displays which are 3D that might also be worth looking at include the Acer GN246HL[plb_2263973_price], the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], or the Edge10 ES240d Slim[plb_1904863_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 244E5 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 244E5 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the HP EliteDisplay S231[plb_2198924_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
