The Philips Brilliance 242G5DJEB/00 is an excellent gaming monitor, but our main concern is the price. At just under £290, it's more expensive than the AOC myUltraSpeed G2460Pqu and the larger Iiyama Prolite GB2773HS, both of which have 144Hz refresh...

Philips 242G5DJEB 24” Gaming Monitor Review

I am very glad I got it and recommended it out.


I use it for home, school and work from home. I am very happy I got it. Recommended to my work colleagues that run to the office often to get a good image so they can stay home.

Fantastic picture, Bright and Crystal Clear


If you are looking for a GREAT picture at a reasonable price, Then THIS IS YOUR SCREEN!!! Deep dark blacks and the whites are bright without letting the picture wash out. Nothing negative to tell!
