Iiyama Has Good Reviews for Its PC Screens
We calculated the average reviews for all iiyama flatpanel monitors and specifically for iiyama small monitors and found that in both cases iiyama had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Good Picture Quality
One customer said in their reviews that the product had good picture quality. Jonesy mentioned on Amazon “It works well as a second monitor if your PC has two graphics ports” in their review.
One person who reviewed it considered that it was a good height. Jonesy mentioned in their review of this PC monitors on Amazon “The stand is also height adjustable”.
LED Display Type

There are a number of alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to look at including the AOC e966Swn, the DELL E2014 (£64.99), or the Hanns.G HP195 (£75.87) which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The iiyama B1980SD has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age which do not have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus VE198 (£64.98).
We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the Edge10 ET185a, or the Hanns.G HX194 (£92.96).
Has One Cable Included
The B1980SD has a greater number of cables included than most small monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. The most commonly found cable included is VGA, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|DVI|VGA are also found on this PC monitor.
+6 More reasons for
Very Big Viewable Height
The viewable heights of small monitors that were released around the same time as the B1980SD range from 110mm to 440mm. The B1980SD has one of the biggest viewable heights (376.32 millimeters) amongst comparable spec PC monitors of this age.
Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment
The lowest maximum height adjustment of PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the B1980SD is 50mm and the highest is 150mm. At 130 millimeters, the B1980SD has a fairly high maximum height adjustment compared to most of the other PC screens that have been available for a similar time to the B1980SD.

5 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that were launched more than two years ago, the B1980SD is not 3D compatible.
If you want a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Neovo C-17 (£103.20).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the B1980SD, the iiyama B1980SD does not have a built-in camera.
Alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the Asus VK207 (£124.99).
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The B1980SD does not have an integrated card reader, although this is within the context that most of the other flatpanel monitors of this type and age also do not have an integrated card reader.
We compared all the other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader to this PC display and we think the Samsung LS20C300 (£90.84) is also worth considering.
Quite Small Viewable Width
Across all the PC monitors of this spec and age the viewable widths range from 190mm to 480mm, and the average viewable width is 390mm. The iiyama B1980SD has a quite small viewable width (only 301.05 millimeters) compared to most of the other small monitors that were released more than two years ago.
+2 More reasons against
The lightest PC display that has been around for around the same time as the B1980SD is 3.3g weight and the heaviest is 19kg. With a weight of 5.1 kilograms, the iiyama B1980SD is one of the heavier flatpanel monitors that were released around the same time as the B1980SD amongst small monitors of this age.
5 Other reasons to consider the iiyama B1980SD
OK Running Costs

5000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The iiyama B1980SD has a maximum contrast ratio of 5000000:1. That's 75% less contrast ratio than the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 20000000:1.
There are a number of alternative PC monitors that have a 5000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available that you might want to look at including a cheaper PC monitor such as the Fujitsu L19T-4 (£78.82), or the LG 20EN33 (£95.68) or you might consider a higher scoring PC monitor such as the iiyama E1780SD (£98.78).
If the contrast ratio of this PC screen is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL E2014 (£64.99) (8000000:1 and cheaper), the Acer G195HQ (10000000:1 and cheaper), or the Philips 196V4L (£72.73) (10000000:1 and cheaper).
