A decent monitor that is a business-like choice.

Advantages: A good choice for a standard monitor.
Disadvantages: Pretty basic, consider it a 'value range' but is branded so built well.
I use two of these monitors for work, and have been happy enough with them.
I have used, and still use, Dell monitors of the same kind of specification and price. The Philip's model is matt metallic silver, in stark comparison to the majority of other LCD monitor's which are black.
This is ok, so long as you are happy with that colour. It will look odd if you have a black keyboard, mouse and speaker for example. That's purely a cosmetic thing, but definitely your first consideration before looking into anything else.
So, if you are happy with the colour.
The quality and functions is pretty much what you would expect from an entry level model like this. It's big enough, but not widescreen. It handles a decent resolution and the screen is fairly crisp and clear without pulling up any trees to make you think "wow!" this looks great.
Brightness and contrast is good and you can manually control what you would normally expect to, but there is a good auto mode that does it all for you based on your system.
Connections are basic, just a VGA cable input and power - nothing else. That offers limited options, but you are getting what you pay for here.
The bottom line is here, if you are looking for a run-on-the-mill but decent quality monitor, this is ok. You'll get the same kind of spec from other manufactures at the same price. They are pretty much the same if you pay around this amount.
Reliability is good in my experience. I've had no problems over three years of day-after-day use.
Summary: Decent choice is getting a good price and if you aren't looking for something special.
