8 Reasons Against
Inferior Picture Quality
One customer wrote that the product did not have a good contrast ratio. Pc Mag said “Dark blacks” in their review.
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Philips 247E6 does not have a built-in speaker(s), although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 247E6 also do not have a built-in speaker(s).
There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider including the RL2455[pl_2006981_price], or the GW2460HM[pl_1521708_price] both from Benq or the AOC I2470[plb_2051898_price] which is also higher rated.
The Philips 247E6 is not 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other LCD screens of this type and age are also not 3D.
If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D then you might want to look at the Acer GN246HL[plb_2263973_price], the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], or the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years, the Philips 247E6 does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the VK228H[pl_1386924_price], or the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price] both from Asus or the Lenovo LT2323[plb_2402544_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

The shortest mean time between failures (MTBF) of PC monitors of this age and spec is 30h and the longest is 70,000h.
