Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the C240P4 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Philips C240P4 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the XB3070WQS (£499.99), or the XB2776QS (£479.99) both from iiyama or the Eizo FlexScan EV2736 (£500.99) which has better reviews.

Pricey

The cheapeast PC screens of a comparable spec and age that we found costs £51 and the most expensive costs £5,421. We think that this PC screen looks expensive for a comparable spec PC screen that has been on the market for more than two years.

Not 3D Compatible

The Philips C240P4 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the C240P4 are also not 3D compatible.

PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Samsung SMT-2232 (£299.99), the Philips 272G5DYEB/93, or the Acer DA220 (£185.51).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC monitors of this age and spec do not have an integrated card reader. The Philips C240P4 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the UP2414Q (£499.99), or the U3014 (£749) both from DELL or the Benq BL3201 (£659.99) which is also higher rated.
