7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Iiyama is one of the superior PC monitor manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and iiyama also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

Good Size

One person wrote in their reviews that the iiyama B2280 was a good height. At3110 wrote in their iiyama B2280 review “Absolutely fab, height adjustment was great”.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The iiyama B2280 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the B2280 do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the Philips 234E5 which has better reviews; or the Philips 221B6 which is cheaper.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama E2282HS is also worth considering.
