6 Reasons For
Iiyama has good average ratings for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range compared to other manufacturers.
Price Drop of £11.08
The B2480HS-B2 has dropped in price by £11.08 in the last 61 days.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The B2480HS-B2 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other new medium monitors.
There are a number of other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the Philips 221B6LPCB (£125.02), or the AOC E2475PWJ (£127.48) which is cheaper; or the Acer B246HL (£145.24) which has a better Rating.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the iiyama B2480HS-B2 is more than most medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this flatpanel monitor. The cables included AC|AUX|DVI are also found on this PC display.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC display has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on similar spec PC monitors that came out in the last year.
Very Fast Response Time
New LCD screens have response times of between 1ms and 20ms. The B2480HS-B2 has a fairly fast response time (only 2 milliseconds) compared to most of the other PC screens that are a similar age to the B2480HS-B2.

8 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year, the B2480HS-B2 does not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months do not have an integrated card reader. The iiyama B2480HS-B2 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might want to consider including the DELL U2413 (£262.00) which also has a higher rating.
Not 3D Compatible
Most medium monitors that have been available for the last year are not 3D compatible. The B2480HS-B2 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Only LCD Display Type
The B2480HS-B2 has an LCD display type which is better than most comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to it. Most recently released flatpanel monitors have an LED display type.
An LCD display type is in fact the worst display type across all medium monitors that were launched in the last year.
Across similar types of PC monitor the best display type is LED.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LCD Display and we think the Viewsonic VX2276-smhd (£124.97) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
LCD screens with a better display type that might also be worth looking at include the iiyama E2282HV (£107.27) (LED and cheaper), or the Samsung S24F350FHU (£124.78) (LED and cheaper).
+5 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC display has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium monitors that came out in the last 12 months.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including cheaper PC monitors such as the iiyama E2282HV (£107.27), or the Samsung S24F350FHU (£124.78).
If you want a PC monitor with a more display resolution then you might want to look at the DELL U2413 (£262.00) (1920 x 1200) which is also higher rated.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many new medium monitors.
The lightest latest medium monitor is 2.6g weight and the heaviest is 33kg. At 6.1 kilograms, the iiyama B2480HS-B2 is quite heavy compared to most of the other PC displays that were released around the same time as the B2480HS-B2.
4 Other reasons to consider the iiyama B2480HS-B2
Running Costs Are OK
The energy efficiency rating of this PC display is A, and the B2480HS-B2 has an average running cost of £39 over 5 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 371 LCD screens that were launched in the last year.
Released Eleven Months Ago
This PC screen has been on the market for eleven months.
12000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the B2480HS-B2 is 12000000:1. That's 88% less contrast ratio than the most common dynamic contrast ratio of 100000000:1.
We compared all the other PC monitors that have a 12000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to this LCD screen and we think the iiyama E2282HV (£107.27) which is cheaper; or the iiyama B2483HSU-B1DP (£155.23) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
If you would prefer a PC monitor with a higher contrast ratio then you might also want to look at the Philips 221B6LPCB (£125.02) (20000000:1) which is also cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
The B2480HS-B2 has a pretty standard width (571.5 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that have been around for the last year.
Alternative flatpanel monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Philips 247E6QDAD (£122.30) (561mm) which is also cheaper.
