8 Reasons For
Low Running Costs
Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the B2280 will cost only £34 over 5 years to run, which is in the cheapest 16% of all 998 PC displays of a comparable age and spec.
Iiyama PC Monitors Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all iiyama flatpanel monitors and also specifically for iiyama medium monitors and found that in both cases iiyama had good reviews.
One person wrote in their reviews that the iiyama B2280 was a good height. At3110 wrote in their iiyama B2280 review “Absolutely fab, height adjustment was great”.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The iiyama B2280 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the B2280 which do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the B2280HS[pl_2538377_price], or the B2283HS[pl_2323545_price] both from iiyama or the Acer 226WL[plb_1498662_price].
Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
Medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the B2280 have horizontal viewing angles of between 60° and 1,800°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°. At 178 degrees, the iiyama B2280 has a quite wide horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar type and age to the B2280.
Has Four Cables Included
The number of cables included found on the iiyama B2280 is more than most PC screens of this spec and age. This LCD screen has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for more than two years. The cables included "Audio (3.5mm)", "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this PC screen.
+3 More reasons for
Supports One Placement
The iiyama B2280 has a greater number of placements than most medium monitors that have been available for more than two years. The most commonly supported placement is Horizontal, but this placement is not supported by this flatpanel monitor. The placements Horizontal/Vertical are also supported by this iiyama flatpanel monitor.
With a width of only 512.5 millimeters, the iiyama B2280 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PC monitors of this age and type. Across all the PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the B2280 the widths range from 52mm to 6,500mm, and the average width is 580mm.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to look at the Viewsonic VA2212A-LED[plb_1518009_price] (511.1mm and cheaper).

Price Has Increased by £24.21
In the last 49 days the price of the B2280 has increased by £24.21.
Not 3D Compatible
The iiyama B2280 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.
Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price], or the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price] which also has a higher rating.

The iiyama B2280 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the B2280 also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Small Viewable Width
The average viewable width of medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the B2280 is 520mm, and the viewable widths range from 1mm to 880mm. With a viewable width of only 473.7 millimeters, the iiyama B2280 has a quite small viewable width compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that were launched around the same time as the B2280.
