Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve57 Great value for money
Good size and finish (generally). Colour and image quality excellent - a revelation based on our old monitor! Easy to set up and connected using seperately purchased HDMI cable - its worth it!
Only fault is cable tidy which is really useless as I couldnt fit it into monitor stand and it was flimsy anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bodgy screen controls
several of your previous reviewers have commented about the control buttons situated at the bottom of the unit,these are difficult to see and apart from the on/off button there are no instructions to tell you in detail what the other controls do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by knanight Excellent against competition
I keep seeing poor design reviews based on this product but I for one greatly welcome the compacitive butons and power LED tucked out of sight.
This means I don't have to see obvious buttons or lights when I spend hours watching or gaming.
The screen quality is what you expect from Phillips and with it being a W-LED lit TFT this is very good going considering anything better is going to cost you an extra £50 unless you find a deal at the right time..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonjour748 Excellent product
I bought this monitor as a stepping stone to get me up and running with my new computer. I'm currently looking for something "better". I've used inverted comma's because I still can't afford anything flash, and to be honest, this one has been doing just fine. I've edited photos on it, and I've played hundreds of hours of War Thunder and flight sim games on it, and I'm having second thoughts about upgrading. Yes the buttons are tucked out of sight. But they are only used once for the initial setup, and there is no real need even for that. Thoroughly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Desmo375 This product has design flaws
I was instructed by the packaging of this product not to use the CD-ROM to install the control software. Instead, for Windows 10, I was asked to download the Smart Control software from the parent site. Did that and installed. It has never worked but instead everytime I try to run from the Desktop icon it crashes.
The manual controls for this VDU and located under the screen on the right-hand side in the black plastic surround. They are so poorly marked that I did not find them for several days. They are alomost impossible to locate in low light conditon or from a normal viewing position.
The highest definition screen resolution leaves only half of an icon visible at the left-hand edge of the active screen and without SmartControl this is impossible to correct.
Pretty rubbishy for a 'quality' product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by komodo76 The 'user friendly' OSD adjustment is poor
The OSD is very difficult to use. There are no buttons so you have to guess where to press for each function. Consequently the wrong one is often selected. ..Often switching the device off while trying to adjust it.
The controls a far too sensitive and cannot reliably be adjusted without missing the desired setting. I spent several hours trying to adjust the vertical/horizontal picture position without success. Gave up in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nutty56 Fantastic Quality and Value for Money
I have a HP Pavillion 15" computer and was struggling with the advanced Photgraphic Software I have ie. Adobe Elelments, Lightroom6 and CC.
I needed a larger screen but within my budget.
This Phillips LCD is one Fantastic Screen and product. The definition and colour quality is second to none. It has completely changed the way I now manipulate my Photgraph's with Stunning results.
Very straight forward setup with minmum instructions, very light and portable.
I would advise anyone to buy this product, Brilliant

Rated 1 out of 5 by kuvahara The worst
I like Phillips and I thought to buy a monitor. Such a huge disappointment! Too bright and too much contrast, false colours. Setup buttons are almost hidden, very hard to use them. I will buy a new one and I don't care if I loose the money I paid but I don't want to be upset every single day. Scrap, scrap, scrap. It looks good - if you don't want to use. Just rubbish.
