Owner Reviews Are Good

Based on 23 owner reviews this iiyama flatpanel monitor has an average owner rating of 87 out of 100.

Robust

A few customers who reviewed it concluded that it was strong and durable. Reevaldo gave the iiyama X2485WS a score of 80 out of 100 and said in their review on Amazon in October last year “Still, as a result I fitted the rest of my office out with the USB version which has a sturdy stand with a rotatable base, rotates the screen”.

Good Brand

Iiyama has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range compared to other manufacturers.

Easy to Use

One iiyama X2485WS owner who reviewed it concluded that it was easy to use. Carrot Cruncher mentioned on Amazon “Colour control appears excellent so far”.

Good Product Quality

One iiyama X2485WS reviewer concluded that the iiyama X2485WS was good quality. Reevaldo mentioned “The reason this is not 5 stars is due to the poor quality of the stand” and rated the iiyama X2485WS 80 out of 100.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other PC displays of this age and spec which do not have a built-in speaker, the X2485WS has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq BL2411[plb_1541459_price], or the Philips 241P4[plb_1485096_price].

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the LG 25UB55[plb_2505526_price] is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Poor Sound Quality

One customer considered that it did not have good sound quality. Alan, Bracknell wrote in their review of the iiyama X2485WS “The only downside is that the sound quality is poor” but they scored it 4 stars.

Not 3D Compatible

The X2485WS is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and type to the X2485WS are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the XL2420[pl_1453626_price], or the XL2411[pl_2130532_price] both from Benq or the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price] which also has a higher rating.

Other LCD screens which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Philips 272C4QPJKAB/00[plb_1532812_price], or the AOC I2472[plb_2126699_price] which is also higher rated.
