      Disadvantages

      Well worth the money, and a clear bright display.

      My main pc uses 4 monitors - previously 2 x 24" widescreens one on top of the other, and 2 x 19" standard, 1 at either side. I like having the extended desktop acreage so I can spread out everything I do. A month ago the backlight packed in on one of the 19" monitors, so I bought one of these to replace it. I have 2 x geforce GTX 650ti cards which have 3 digital outputs (2 x DVI-D and 1 x HDMI) and a single VGA output. The monitor came with a standard VGA cable, so I had to buy a separate DVI-D cable, but that was only £5 from Ebay.

      For the sake of playing with it I tried out the VGA and HDMI (borrowed the cable from my xbox) before using the DVI-D cable. All gave a really clear and bright image at the native resolution of 1920 x 1080 with no detectable lag or shadowing.

      Although this monitor does have build in speakers, I haven't used them, though for a basic work/net pc these would definately be adequate and reduce the footprint on the desk (by doing away with separate speakers).

      My other 19" looked a but small in comparison to the other 3 x 24" monitors, so I bought another of these the same day the first one arrived. For £115 I really couldn't knock it.

      The only cons, and they are trivial, is that the power cable that came in the box was european, but I have a few spare UK cables lying about. It takes a standard 3 pin power cable. Look's wise, the monitor looks fantastic, but the base does look like cheap shiny plastic (probably because it is cheap, shiny plastic), but the bases have since been covered with excess post-it notes and accumulated desk junk.

      Techy stuff:

      Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution

      16:9 widescreen - really good for gaming and movies

      5ms response - I haven't detected any lag or shadowing in video's or games.

      SmartContrast 25,000:1 for incredible rich black details - well, the black looks really black, so I guess that's ok.

      HDMI-ready for top quality, multimedia experience - apparently you can plug more into the monitor, like your PC via DVI-D and a games condole via HDMI, though I haven't tried it yet.

        great philips screen

        We are a family that spends sometimes quite a lot of time behind the computer and all for different kind of reasons. While I like the computer to use of the internet and writing reviews, others use it more for gaming and listening music and using the webcam. For that reason we wanted a large enough screen so we found this one.

        The monitor was delivered within 1 day and could be connected right away, you only need to have 2 cables, namely a power cable and a cable that goes in the computer / console. Once you connected the monitor you can just use it without having to adjust settings. If you want to adjust the screen settings you can very easily adjust them with the touch sensitive buttons at the bottom of the screen. You can't really press those button, but more softly click on them.

        You can connect this monitor to almost everything and even to two different devices at once!For example you can use an HDMI cable for a game console and a VGA cable to a computer. You can easily navigate between the HDMI and the VGA connector. The speakers in the monitor, do their job well, but it is not the best sound quality. For the full experience is a surround sound system recommended.

        Philips always delivers top products, this monitor is no exception. The monitor displays sharp images, ideal for work or for entertainment of course. The size of the screen is the ideal monitor to work, you might open a Word document and simultaneously have the Internet browser open at the side. This monitor is also very suitable to gaming, the screen size is just right so you get a better overview of the field. The 5 milliseconds response time that this monitor is important in gaming.
        Older monitors often have a poorer response (5 <ms) so you have a disadvantage in competitive games where reaction is very important.
