13 Reasons For

Excellent Expert Reviews

This Philips PC screen received an expert rating of 100% from pcauthority.com.au. This means that experts think this PC display is one of the very best LCD screens of this age and type.

Easy to Use

One Philips BDM3470 reviewer who reviewed the Philips BDM3470 thought it had a good experience. Pcauthority.com.au gave this PC monitor a score of 5 stars and mentioned “Logically this aspect ratio makes sense, delivering a multi-monitor experience without nasty bezels splitting up the display”.

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Philips PC displays and also specifically for Philips medium monitors and found that in both cases Philips had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens of this age and spec.

There are a number of other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to look at including the LG 27EA83 (£585.88), or the Philips 288P6LJEB (£464.68) which is cheaper; or the Asus PA279 (£632.98) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age which do not have a built-in speaker, the Philips BDM3470 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the PA279 (£632.98), and the PB279 (£554.16) both from Asus or the LG 34UC97 (£599.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
