Advantages: easy to use and to connect to the computer
Disadvantages: non for us
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.
Summary: great philips screen
