Philips Brilliance 242G5DJEB/00 review

 

This 144Hz gaming monitor has lots of ports, but its image quality could be better

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...

Verdict

 

The Philips 242G5DJEB 24″ 144Hz Gaming monitor was simple to set up and position, thanks to that fantastic stand. The excitement of having a super fast 144Hz refresh rate was short lived when (to me at least) I couldn’t really discern any difference...

Philips 242G5DJEB 24” Gaming Monitor Review

 

The Philips Gaming monitor has a respectable range of features, but not all of these proved that effective. The 4-port USB 3.0 hub was a great touch, as long as your computer supports it. But the charging port still failed to charge our iPad 2.

Good monitor

 

A great monitor overall, especially for the $245 I got it for all in (tax, env. fees, etc). Very solidly built. 144 hz is a big upside. AWFUL colors. I mean horrendous. Mind you, you can correct this through windows color calibration tool for the most...

144 Hz refresh rate ; VERY SOLID STAND ; Good design ; Good size

TN panel ; THE WORST COLOR IV'E SEEN ON A MONITOR

Good gaming monitor for the price

 

I am quite happy with the monitor that I bought. You can really tell the difference between 60 hz and 144 hz if you have the computer to support it. You need a computer that can push at least 144 frames per second to take advantage of it fully. The...

Nice!

 

Being a TN monitor I was expecting a not so good image. With a little tweaking it's nice. Stand is awesome and fully adjustable which helps with the TN viewing angle handicap. The wired remote is cool for changing settings. Using a customized gamer 1...

All around great monitor

 

I truly believe this is one of the best monitors you can buy at this price point.. 1 ms refresh rate, 144hz, adjustable stand, and once tweaked and properly set up, it has a fantastic display. This display is the biggest issue with this monitor because...

can't beat for the price

 

This monitor has an amazing picture. Colors needed a little tweaking in settings and then it's set. Great refresh rate, smooth animations while gaming. I highly recommend. So far so good for durability.

Great Monitor Leagues Above It's Price Point

 

---QUICK NOTE--- If you buy any 144hz monitor and have a Windows PC: go to Adjust Screen Resolution, then click Advanced, then go to the Monitor tab, and make sure your refresh rate is set to 144hz (mine defaulted to 60hz). I'm into PC gaming,...
