7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Philips PC displays and also specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on flatpanel monitors that have been around for a comparable time to it.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer G246HYL[plb_3026768_price] is also worth considering.
