Expert Reviews Are Average

Nice Design

One Philips 272C4QPJKAB owner reckoned that it was a good design. Expert review site Micromart.co.uk said three years ago “Having recently reviewed the Philips 298X4QJAB ultra-widescreen, I was very curious to see a more normal aspect ratio design that exceeded the norm of 1080p resolution”.

Good Technical Features

One Philips 272C4QPJKAB reviewer concluded that this PC monitor had good features. Micromart.co.uk said “The Philips Brilliance MultiView 272C4QPJKAB has many features in common with that ult” in their review and gave the Philips 272C4QPJKAB a rating of 4 stars.

Philips Has Good PC Display Reviews

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

Has a Built-In Camera

The 272C4QPJKAB has a built-in camera, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 272C4QPJKAB do not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors with a built-in camera currently available that you might also want to consider including the 271P4QPJ ($263.14), or the 231P4Q ($270.16) both from Philips which has better reviews.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the AOC I2472 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 272C4QPJKAB has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 272C4QPJKAB which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer H276HL ($197.33), the iiyama GB2773HS, and the Asus MX279H ($259.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Display Diagonal

At 68.58 centimeters, the 272C4QPJKAB has a quite big display diagonal compared to most of the other PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the 272C4QPJKAB. The smallest display diagonal of similar spec PC displays that came out around the same time as the 272C4QPJKAB is 50cm and the biggest is 770cm.

8 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

Not 3D Compatible

The 272C4QPJKAB is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC displays of this type and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Asus VG248QE ($207.99), the Benq XL2411 ($245.99), or the Philips 278G4DHSD which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other LCD screens of this age and type, the 272C4QPJKAB does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens with an integrated card reader and we think the U2713H ($682.40), or the U2413 ($442.20) both from DELL which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

LCD Display Type

PC monitors with a better display type that might be worth considering include the iiyama XB2780HSU ($320.68) (LED and higher rated), or the Samsung S24C570 (LED and higher rated); or the iiyama X2888HS (LED and cheaper).
