Good quality, great price,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips 244E1SB 24 inch LCD Monitor with SmartTouch Controls (Accessory)I already had one 22 inch Acer monitor that I wanted to keep for myself when we moved into a new property. So, I bought this to handle TV and PS3 input and it works great. For the price this is a fantastic purchase and the monitor itself (as opposed to the display) looks very nice as well (not always to be said of cheaper monitors). The internal speakers are also more than decent enough for general use which is more than can be said of many others; no tinny sound on this screen.
Three VERY minor issues:
It is not clear in the description but the product power cable is an American style two-pronged plug. This will need either an adapter or a new power cable if you are in the UK. Luckily these are the generic power cables and cheap anyway. I had a spare in the house and it worked fine.
The stand itself feels a little flimsy, which, given the expensive nature of the product on top, is a little worrying but after some pushing and shoving to test it seems firm enough.
Finally, the biggest annoyance, the buttons (volume, input, etc) only light up when you press them. However, when you press them to get them to light up they activate properly on that first press. This means that I've sometimes, pressed them to get them to appear so I can change the volume and have accidentally changed the input hiding the programme I was trying to hear.
