Easy to Use

One person who bought it reckoned that it had a good experience. Expert review site Pcauthority.com.au mentioned in their Philips BDM3470 review “Logically this aspect ratio makes sense, delivering a multi-monitor experience without nasty bezels splitting up the display” and rated it 5 stars.
