3 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2

65% Faster Response Time

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is a 5 response time PC monitor, and so do the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and the Philips V Line 246V5. That's 9ms faster than the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB (14ms). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

$9 Cheaper

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is $205 cheaper than the Philips 326M6FJSB, $240.68 cheaper than the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB, $132.41 cheaper than the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and $8.96 cheaper than the Philips V Line 246V5.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2

12.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 has a display diagonal of 19.5, whereas the Philips 326M6FJSB is a 32" PC monitor (12.5" bigger), the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB is a 25" PC monitor (5.5" bigger), the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB is a 31.5" PC monitor (12" bigger) and the Philips V Line 246V5 is a 24" PC monitor (4.5" bigger). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Smaller Display Resolution

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 has a display resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels pixels, which is 3 times smaller display resolution as the Philips 326M6FJSB and the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB (2560 x 1440 pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is a 65 vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 113° narrower than the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB and the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB (178°) and 95° narrower than the Philips V Line 246V5 (160°). More ...

The vertical viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the screen can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

88° Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 has a horizontal viewing angle of 90, whereas the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB and the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB are all 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (88° wider) and the Philips V Line 246V5 is a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (80° wider). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Only Very Low (600:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 has a very low (600:1) typical contrast ratio, which is 3 times lower typical contrast ratio of the Philips 326M6FJSB (medium) and half the typical contrast ratio of the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB, the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and the Philips V Line 246V5 (low). More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Does Not Have a Built-in USB Hub

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and the Philips V Line 246V5), whereas the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB has this feature. More ...

'USB Hub' indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 does not have a built-in speaker (As do the the Philips 326M6FJSB and the Philips V Line 246V5), however the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB and the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB do. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Over Three Years Older

The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is older than the Philips 326M6FJSB by one year, older than the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB by three years and older than the Philips V Line 246V5 by three years. The Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is the same age as the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specialised interface for transferring high quality audio & visual data from a data source (such as a DVD player or computer) to a TV or monitor.

An HDMI connection on your monitor allows for extremely high-quality audio/visual transmission from a computer or DVD player, meaning your films will sound and look the best they can be.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

5% Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Philips V Line 246V5 is a 170 horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° narrower than the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB and the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB (178°) and 80° wider than the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 (90°). More ...

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB

2560 X 1440 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB has a display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels pixels (as is the Philips 326M6FJSB), but the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and the Philips V Line 246V5 have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels and the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 only has a display resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

113° Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB has a vertical viewing angle of 178 (as do the Philips 326M6FJSB and the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB), but the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is only a 65° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (113° narrower) and the Philips V Line 246V5 is only a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (18° narrower). More ...

The vertical viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the screen can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

34% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB is a 178 horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Philips 326M6FJSB and the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB. That's 88° wider than the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 (90°) and 8° wider than the Philips V Line 246V5 (170°). More ...

Headphone Out

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB has a headphone out, and so does the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB, however the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 and the Philips V Line 246V5 do not. More ...

'Headphone Out' denotes whether the monitor has an audio passthrough, allowing your to plug headphones directly into the monitor, and have the sound from your computer run through them.

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB

Smaller Display Diagonal

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

A Lot Slower Response Time

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB has a response time of 14, whereas the Philips 326M6FJSB, the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB, the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 and the Philips V Line 246V5 are all 5ms response time PC monitors (9ms faster). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Half the Typical Contrast Ratio

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and the Philips V Line 246V5), however the Philips 326M6FJSB has a medium typical contrast ratio. More ...

One Less HDMI Port

The number of HDMI ports on the Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB is one (as do the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB and the Philips V Line 246V5), but the Philips 326M6FJSB only has two HDMI ports. More ...

We do not know the number of HDMI ports on the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2. It is possible that it does not have any HDMI ports.

The number of HDMI ports the monitor has.

More HDMI ports means that you can plug in more devices (computer, games console, DVD player, etc) to the screen at once.

More Expensive by $241

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB is $36 more expensive than the Philips 326M6FJSB, $108 more expensive than the Philips E Line 323E7QDAB, $241 more expensive than the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 and $232 more expensive than the Philips V Line 246V5.

Not As Many Stockists

The Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB is only stocked by 4 sellers, however the Philips V Line 203V5LSB2 is stocked by 5 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor.
