Product Overview

Philips 242B1 is an affordable 24-inch FHD monitor designed for business use in Philips's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit IPS panel with surprisingly good color reproduction.
The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support and is not very bright. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
