Chart

Good Connectivity

One iiyama XB2485WSU owner considered that it was good in terms of USB connections. C S. mentioned on Amazon “What was an added bonus is the USB hub, this has reduced the amount of wires from the back of the pc” and gave the product a very good review score.

Four USB Type-A Downstream Ports

Most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the XB2485WSU have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports, including the XB2485WSU which has four USB Type-A downstream ports.

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the iiyama XB2485WSU is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC monitor, which is the most frequently found display resolution. PC monitors of this age and type display resolutions range from 1366 x 768 pixels to 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XB2485WSU has a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Asus MX279H ($259.99), and the AOC I2757F ($169.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Asus VN279 ($166.99).

With a display brightness of 300 candellas per square meter, the iiyama XB2485WSU has one of the brighter display brightness amongst comparable spec PC screens of this age.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The iiyama XB2485WSU is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the Asus VG248QE ($206.99); or the Philips 278G4DHSD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The XB2485WSU does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have an integrated card reader to this PC screen and we think the DELL U2713H ($682.40) is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the iiyama XB2485WSU

Released Over Four Years Ago

This iiyama PC screen was released over four years ago.

LCD Display Type

The XB2485WSU has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that have been available for more than two years. Most medium monitors that are a comparable age to it have an LED display type.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think a cheaper LCD screen such as the Philips 241P4, and the Benq BL2411 or you might consider a higher rated LCD screen such as the DELL U2410 are also worth considering.

If you want a PC monitor with a better display type then you might want to consider the AOC I2757F ($169.99) (LED and cheaper).
