Easy picture format control switching between wide and 4:3 formats
Philips auto picture format control on OSD is to switch from the 4:3 aspect ratio to the widescreen mode and back again to match the display's aspect ratio with your content for working with wide documents without scroll
USB port for convenient peripheral connections
The USB port allows the user to conveniently connect their plug and play multimedia devices such as USB memory devices, camera, portable HDD, Web camera, PDA, Printer and many other devices that use USB connection. The conveniently located USB 2.0 port on the monitor allows USB 2.0 signals to pass through to the computer. Note that many devices like cameras and HDD may need to be powered on independently, as they have higher power requirements than the monitor USB port can provide.
