7 Reasons For

Philips PC Screens Have Good Reviews

Philips is one of the superior PC monitor manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Philips also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC monitors of this spec and age.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC display and we think the Benq XL2420 ($499.00), and the Samsung S27E370D ($219.00) which has better reviews; or the DELL SE2716H ($190.00) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 240B4, the Philips 240B4 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper LCD screen such as the DoubleSight DS-280UHD ($289.99), or the Samsung LS27E591CS or you might consider a higher scoring LCD screen such as the LG 29UB67 ($289.78).
