Spec wise the 23.8″ sized IPS technology panel offers a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 4ms G2G response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 16.7m colour depth and slightly extended colour gamut of 107% sRGB.

In addition, the monitor is equipped with a LightSensor that automatically adjusts picture brightness to fit the lighting conditions in the room, as well as the Zero Power Switch that ensures zero energy consumption when the monitor is switched off. Delivered in 100% recyclable packing materials, the Philips 243B1 is made of 85% post-consumer recycled plastic and entirely free of harmful substances such as mercury, lead, and PVC/BFR.
