6 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Low
The B2280 has an average running cost of only £34 over 5 years based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the more economic to run PC displays of a similar age and type.
Iiyama Has Good PC Monitor Reviews
Based on 1,276 expert and user reviews, iiyama has good reviews for its LCD screens. iiyama also has good reviews specifically for its medium monitors compared to other brands.
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. Most of the other LCD screens of a similar spec and age to the B2280 also have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper PC displays such as the Hanns.G HS241 (£138.17).
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the iiyama E2282HS (£136.25), or the HKC 2615 (£149.00) is also worth considering.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the iiyama B2280 is more than most similar spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this flatpanel monitor. The cables included AC|Audio (3.5mm)|DVI|VGA are also found on this LCD screen.
At only 509.5 millimeters, the iiyama B2280 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for more than two years. The average width of flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the B2280 is 580mm.
Other 509.5mm wide PC displays currently available that you might also want to consider include the E2280HS (£92.39), or the B2280HS (£131.29) both from iiyama which has a better Rating.
