2 Other reasons to consider the Philips 17S4

Released Over Three Years Ago

Philips released the 17S4 over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The Philips 17S4 has a better display type than most similar spec PC monitors that have been available for more than two years. This LCD screen has an LCD display type, whereas most similar spec PC displays that came out around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think a cheaper PC display such as the HP Compaq LA1905wg ($79.00) or you might consider a higher rated PC display such as the Acer V196 ($67.99) are also worth considering.

If the display type of this small monitor is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Hannspree HP205DJB (LED and cheaper), or the Hanns.G HX194 (LED and cheaper) or the HP W1972a (LED and higher rated).
