Reviews

Two Industry Awards

The editors of two expert review sites both concluded that this flatpanel monitor was good. Hardware.info and Uk.hardware.info both gave this LCD screen an "Excellent" award.

Expert Reviews Are Good

On average, based on four expert reviews from sites including Trusted Reviews, Techradar, techradar.com/au/ and pcworld.com_techhive.com the average expert rating of this medium monitor is 80%.

Good Brand

We checked 581 expert and user reviews (including 40 verified purchases) for Philips PC displays and found that on average Philips has good reviews. We also found that Philips has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors. 85% of those that bought a Philips PC screen would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Energy

Running Costs Are Average

Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 8 year running cost of the 258B6QJEB is £66, which is typical compared to the other 648 LCD screens of a comparable type and age.


Price

Price Corresponds With the Optical

Three people said in their reviews that it was not good value for money. Two years ago website Pcworld.com_techhive.com wrote “Price corresponds with the optical” in their review of this PC monitor. Also two years ago Techradar said “Larger monitors can be had for the same price”. In the same month Techradar.com mentioned in their review of the Philips 258B6QJEB on expert website Techradar “Looks slick with its thin bezels, though it isn't cheap compared to rivals” but despite that they still rated it 4 stars out of 5.

Pricey

After checking the price of 483 comparable spec PC monitors that were released more than a year ago they range in price from £50 to £3,769. We think that this PC display looks expensive compared to other comparable spec PC monitors that were released more than a year ago.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 258B6QJEB has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and type to this PC screen.

We compared this PC screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of their better review scores, the AOC Q3277PQU (£324.99), and the Asus VG278HV are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq PD2700Q (£349.73).
