Pros and cons

According to our monitor expert
  • Thanks to the design with slim bezels, this monitor is suitable for a setup with multiple monitors next to each other.
  • With a 75Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time, this monitor is also suitable for gaming.
  • The LowBlue mode helps you prevent strained eyes after a long working day.
  • This monitor isn't height adjustable, so your posture isn't as ergonomically sound.

Description

The Philips 242E2FA/00 is a 24-inch monitor with a virtually bezel-less design. If you use this monitor in a multi-screen setup, you won't see borders in between. You'll work with realistic colors because the screen covers more than 100 percent of the sRGB color space. This is especially pleasant when you're photo editing or watching movies. You can also use this monitor for gaming thanks to the 1ms response time and 75Hz refresh rate. This ensures you'll have less issues with blurred transitions during a fast action scene. A long working day? No problem. The blue light filter and flicker-free technology reduce strained eyes.

    Nice screen, but doesn't work with monitor arms

    • Beautiful appearance
    • Great picture
    • Price quality
    • Menu sometimes clumsy
    • Not compatible with monitor arms

    The screen itself is fine and looks beautiful. And highly recommended if you plan to leave it on the included base.

    However, contrary to what Coolblue says, in practice this screen is not compatible with monitor arms to hang it on the wall, for example. The specifications indicate that the screen can be mounted via VESA 75 and this is correct. Most (read: all I could find) monitor arms of VESA 75 have a plate that is also suitable for VESA 100. Because the VESA connection is recessed in the monitor, plates larger than VESA 75 do not fit. In short: although this screen works on paper with VESA 75, in practice this is impossible.

    Due to this inconvenience, I unfortunately had to send the monitor back.

    • Edge less screen
    • Display port connection
    • Nice and sharp image
    • Brightness is not adjustable in sRGB color mode while that just gives the most beautiful colors but understood that this is the case with many monitors
    • VESA connection is indeed 75x75, however I had ordered a bracket that can also carry 100x100, however this flange does not fit directly into/on the screen. A point of attention if you purchase a support.

    Have them (3x) for a week now and they are excellent for my studies. I have them connected to a laptop and they work perfectly.

    Good screen for everyday use for a good price.
    • Nice sleek design
    • Tight image
    • Nice colours
    • Does what it's supposed to do
    • 75 mounting, but fixed.

    Especially for this price you get a very nice screen that is very nice to use in combination with a 2nd.

    Really good monitor
    • design
    • colors
    • VESA 75x75, cannot fit 100x100 which most stands also support. So you need some extra solution in this case

    Great monitor, only VESA mount a bit disappointing

    Fantastic monitor for the visually impaired.
    • Nice colours
    • Full HD with internal speakers
    • Very thin screen
    • Takes up little space
    • Control joystick behind screen

    As a visually impaired I took this monitor. Mainly because of the IPS panel. Am very happy with it.
    Takes up very little space and the almost borderless design makes the monitor more visible in my limited field of view.
    The contrast colors are also clearer than my former iiyama monitor with TN panel.

    Top. Am happy with it.
    • Minimalist Borders
    • super thin
    • Light weight
    • Low energy consumption
    • Poor sound (speech good, music mediocre)
    • May tilt down max. 5 degrees
    • Maximum brightness requires SmartFrame setting

    Great monitor. Only the maximum tilt down of 5 degrees is a minus (is that thing so weak that it falls apart at more than 10 degrees?).
    The Vesa is unfortunately 75x75. Yet that is not a problem. Most monitor arms or wall mounts support 75x75 in addition to 100x100. You just saw a plank of laminate of 7mm thick at about 12cm x 10cm, round the corners and drill 4 holes of 5mm. Then you have a good fitting piece and the whole problem is solved. Bit stupid of Philips that they don't add a plastic fitting piece as standard.

    Beautiful and good quality
    • Thin Edges
    • Different color settings
    • Built-in speakers
    • Not heavy
    • nice design

    Very nice monitor with beautiful image. 1 ms and 75 Hz is great for games, but this monitor is also very suitable for office work due to the beautiful design. Built-in speakers are a plus and the quality of these is okay. Don't expect too much sound quality, you do need speakers for that.
