This PC display has an average expert rating of 71% based on three expert reviews from sites including itproportal.com, chip.com.tr and pcworld.pl.

Philips Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

Medium monitors built by Philips have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all PC screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Philips also has good ratings across its entire range.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of a similar age and spec to it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price], or the iiyama XU2390HS[plb_2204569_price] which has better reviews; or the AOC P2460[plb_2298428_price] which is cheaper.

Across all the comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the 221S3 the recyclable material percentages range from 25% to 1,000%, and the average recyclable material percentage is 89%.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Power Consumption When Off

When compared to other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed the power consumption when off of, the Philips 221S3's power consumption when off of only 0.1 Watts is one of the lowest. PC screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the 221S3 have power consumptions when off of between 0.005W and 21W.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Cable Length

At 1.8 meters, the Philips 221S3 has a very long cable length compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been on the market for more than two years. The cable lengths of medium monitors that were released more than two years ago range from 0.88m to 9m, and the average cable length is 1.7m.

Chart Edit

Short

The heights of PC screens of this type and age range from 30mm to 4,800mm. The Philips 221S3 is one of the shorter flatpanel monitors of this type and age (only 323 millimeters) amongst comparable spec LCD screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago, the Philips 221S3 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the iiyama E2282HS[plb_1570682_price], or the Philips 234E5[plb_1499798_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

The Philips 221S3 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as the 221S3 also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the VK228H[pl_1386924_price], or the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price] both from Asus which also has a higher rating.
