4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Iiyama medium monitors have good ratings on average and across all flatpanel monitors iiyama is one of the better rated brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The B2280HS has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the B2280HS do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think a cheaper PC display such as the Acer 246HL[plb_1498501_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC display such as the Samsung S22C450[plb_1534747_price], and the Acer B226HQL[plb_2715536_price] are also worth considering.

Has Three Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the B2280HS is more than most LCD screens that are a comparable age to it. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium monitors that were released more than two years ago. The cables included "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this PC display.

Chart Edit


Medium monitors that came out around the same time as the B2280HS have widths of between 52mm and 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm. The B2280HS is fairly narrow (only 509.5 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.

If you are not worried about having a wider width then you might want to consider the S22A450[pl_1388338_price] (508mm and cheaper), or the S22B300[pl_1415216_price] (511mm and cheaper) both from Samsung or the Acer 226HQ[plb_1401247_price] (508mm and cheaper).

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The iiyama B2280HS is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other PC screens that have been on the market for a similar time to the B2280HS are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price], the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], or the Acer XB240H Abpr[plb_2719156_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most PC screens of a similar spec and age to the B2280HS do not have a built-in camera. The B2280HS is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in camera which you might want to consider including the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price].

Chart Edit
