Poor Design

One customer concluded that it was not smooth. One iiyama B2888UHSU reviewer who reviewed it mentioned that it was not a good design. Giacomo Lacava said in their review on Amazon two years ago “A win for Japanese mad skillz at industrial design”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the BL2710, or the XL2720 both from Benq or the Acer XB280HK ($550.99).

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most similar spec PC screens that are a comparable age to the B2888UHSU do not have an integrated card reader. The B2888UHSU is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus PA279 ($749.00), or the DELL UP2414Q is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
