Amsterdam, February 18 – MMD, the leading display specialist and brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the launch of the 24” (60.5 cm) Philips 243B1 LCD monitor. Equipped with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), USB-C docking technology and HDMI connectivity as well as a rich variety of features and technologies designed for optimal comfort and productivity, this monitor is an excellent choice for the ecologically-minded: it not only meets strict environmental standards such as ENERGY STAR, EPEAT and TCO but is equipped with a PowerSensor that can save as much as 80% of energy costs.

Simpler than ever

The Philips 243B1 offers the simplicity of USB-C one-cable docking. Users only need to plug their compatible notebook directly into the monitor using a single slim, reversible cable to enjoy safe and secure USB 3.2 high-speed data transfer and watch FHD videos while powering and recharging their notebook.

Comfort, convenience and connectivity

Designed to deliver absolute user comfort and convenience, the Philips 243B1 features Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue Mode to protect from eye strain as well as the fully adjustable SmartErgoBase that allows the display to be swivelled, tilted, and pivoted for ergonomic comfort and effortless cable management. Easy connectivity is also guaranteed thanks to a host of options including DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, USB 3.2 Gen 2, RJ45 and more.


The Philips 243B1 complies with numerous environmental standards and certifications such as EnergyStar 8.0, EPEAT, TCO Certified Edge and RoHS. The built-in PowerSensor automatically detects the user’s presence and adjusts the monitor’s brightness in response, leading to longer monitor life and energy savings of up to 80%. 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.
