11 Reasons For

Philips Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Philips flatpanel monitors and also specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good ratings.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to consider including the VS239[pl_1386925_price], or the PB238[pl_2368528_price] both from Asus which has better reviews; or the LG 22MP65[plb_2196010_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer B226HQL[plb_1538972_price], or the Fujitsu B22W-7[plb_1602263_price] is also worth considering.
