I can't remember ever having any useful software with a monitor. Usually it serves some kind of function like adjusting the position of the image on the monitor, or something similarly devoid of excitement. What did Philips decide to include on the CD? Well, first up is Philips Flat Panel Adjust.
After the brief installation, you can run the software utility and it takes you through a series of simple test screens to ensure the display is working properly.
NOW I'M DONE! Am I? No, I'm not done at all; let's look at the other utility. It's called Altiris Philips SmartManage Agent. It asks you for your name, and organization name. Is this really necessary?
What did that do then? I'm not sure if it actually tells you, but it adds a tab in the Advanced section of Display Properties. This extra tab gives you extended controls for the monitor.
