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 rates.

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...

The Philips - 242G5DJEB - Gaming Monitor is another model aimed at capturing the 144Hz Market. However the latter is only achievable with a Dual-DVI cable (which is supplied). Mind you for our existing setup this is good because it frees up the HDMI port...

Nils Raettig: Bei den ersten Quake-Testpartien mit dem Philips 242G5DJEB in 60 Hz war ich ehrlich gesagt wenig angetan, für ein TN-Panel mit einer gemessen Reaktionszeit von 4,8 Millisekunden bei aktiviertem Overdrive fühlte sich das Spielen etwas zu...

Qua design valt de monitor in ieder geval op door zijn degelijkheid. Alles is volledig in het zwart uitgevoerd. Alleen op de voorkant zit een rode streep, welke vooral dient als oplichting van het Philips-logo. Opvallend zijn wel de vier USB 3.0-poorten...
