Chart

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 298X4QJAB has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 298X4QJAB do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the AOC Q2963PM ($424.95), the Viewsonic VX2770Smh ($228.00), or the LG 27MP75.

The Philips 298X4QJAB has a fairly wide horizontal viewing angle (178 degrees) compared to most of the other similar spec PC monitors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The 298X4QJAB is a two HDMI port flatpanel monitor. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 298X4QJAB have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

One Philips 298X4QJAB reviewer thought it was not thick. Techradar.com mentioned in their Philips 298X4QJAB review on expert website Techradar “A thick alphanumeric naming soup is unfortunately par for the course for PC monitors”.

Not 3D Compatible

Most medium monitors that are a similar age to the 298X4QJAB are not 3D compatible. The Philips 298X4QJAB is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

PC screens which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Asus VG23AH, the AOC d2757Ph, or the Benq XL2411T which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the 298X4QJAB, the Philips 298X4QJAB does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this flatpanel monitor and we think the 241P4QPY, or the 231C5 both from Philips or the Asus MK241 is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years, the Philips 298X4QJAB does not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2713H ($682.40), or the U2413 ($439.70) both from DELL or the Asus PA279 ($749.00) which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Mean Time Between Failures

At only 30 hours, the Philips 298X4QJAB has a quite short mean time between failures compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 298X4QJAB. The mean time between failures of comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were launched around the same time as the 298X4QJAB range from 30h to 70,000h.

Chart Edit

Only HD HD Type

This PC monitor has a Wide Quad HD HD type, which is typical of many LCD screens of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Viewable Height

The viewable heights of medium monitors that are a similar age to the 298X4QJAB range from 28mm to 630mm. At only 283.82 millimeters, the 298X4QJAB has a fairly small viewable height compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 298X4QJAB.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption When Active

At 33.3 Watts, the Philips 298X4QJAB has a fairly high power consumption when active compared to most of the other LCD screens of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Response Time

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Philips 298X4QJAB

Released Over Three Years Ago

This PC screen was released over three years ago.

LCD Display Type

The 298X4QJAB has an LCD display type which is better than most comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years. Most PC monitors that have been available for around the same time as it have an LED display type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC screens that have an LCD Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Philips 298P4.

If the display type of this flatpanel monitor is too bad for you then you might want to consider the DELL UP2414Q (LED), or the iiyama B2888UHSU (LED) which also has a higher rating.

Good Price for the 29 ultra wide monitor
Bright Colors are great
Has speakers which are pretty good if limited to space on deck
Cheaper then the 29 in LG I have looks almost the same
NO MAC SOFTWARE TO SPLIT SCREENS (LG HAS IT
So to do that you have to buy it from apps store or use the free one
All black but I knew that when I got it , just needs a pretty frame in silver would've been nice
Also would've been nice if they would've put the right cables mini display port one and not the HDMI as the mac reads it as a TV NOT PRETTY THEN
