    Didge (Tesco.com) - September 2015
  • The controls are painful to use as other people mentioned too, other then that fantastic monitor, worth every penny…
  • Buttons under the screen for power and adjustments are an absolute joke as difficult to use and very fiddly…
    N. Nam (Amazon) - January 2016
  • Difficult to set up and calibrate…
