User Reviews Are Good

Based on 15 user reviews this LCD screen has an average user rating of 88 out of 100.

Good Product Quality

Some people who bought this PC monitor wrote that it was good quality. Chidorisai said on Amazon three years ago “Good size and good quality feet description”. Mrs R Lyall mentioned “I am happy with the picture quality of the screen” but even so she scored it 3 stars. Rob mentioned in his iiyama B2481HS review “Great quality screen + company”.

One customer thought the product was heavy and bulky. Two years ago H. R. Collier wrote in their review on Amazon “Plugged it in (though Amazon only supplied a Euro plug and not a chunky 3-pin British one” and gave this PC monitor a score of 80 out of 100.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of this type and age.

We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Benq EW2440[plb_2076167_price] which has better reviews; or the Asus VS239[plb_1386925_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The B2481HS has a built-in speaker. Most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been around for a comparable time to the B2481HS do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the AOC I2473[plb_2254441_price], or the Philips 275C5QHAW[plb_3174546_price] which has better reviews; or the iiyama E2480HS[plb_1437284_price] which is cheaper.

8 Reasons Against

Poor Support

One iiyama B2481HS reviewer wrote in their reviews that the iiyama B2481HS did not have good technical guidance. Two years ago Mrs R Lyall gave the iiyama B2481HS a score of 3 stars and she said “The write up should include information on additional speakers, unfortunately the instructions did not mention what type of speakers you need to buy that would be compatible with this screen”.

Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port

Most PC monitors of this age and type have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports, including the B2481HS which has one USB Type-A downstream port.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the B2481HS, the B2481HS is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price]; or the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a comparable age to the B2481HS, the B2481HS does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in camera and we think the Asus VK228H[plb_1386924_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The iiyama B2481HS does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 3.0 Port

The B2481HS is a one USB 3.0 port flatpanel monitor. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of LCD screens of this spec and age is 4.9kg, and the weights range from 3g to 39kg. With a weight of 6.1 kilograms, the B2481HS is one of the heavier medium monitors that were released more than two years ago amongst comparable spec LCD screens of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the iiyama B2481HS

OK Running Costs

Chart

It was over four years ago when this flatpanel monitor was released.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Average Width

At 571.5 millimeters, the B2481HS has a relatively standard width compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 571.5mm wide flatpanel monitors to this PC display and we think cheaper PC displays such as the iiyama E2480HS[plb_1437284_price] is also worth considering.

PC displays with a wider width that might be worth considering include the DELL P2412H[plb_1448038_price] (568mm).

Really pleased with this monitor. I have many more expensive monitors and this one stands up very well. Excellent bit of kit...

My 10 year old and I set this up. CPU is on 3rd floor and Linksys router is in basement. Almost full bars on card once installed. Easy instructions, easy setup, great reception, no problems
Good signal strength
Very easy to install and configure
Easy install and works good
I bought this card to solve weak signal dropping signal issues. As far as I can tell the issues has drastically improved. (not completely, but a noticeable improvement)
A bit pricey
This card DID NOT boost signal at all. My regular netgear card got better signal
The antennas are smaller and the connectors on the back of the card are smaller, thus rendering my
LINKSYS A 2TNC Antenna Stand for TNC Connectors useless. Its not a SMA connector either. There does not appear to be a stand available
None really, it worked right away and I haven't had to adjust anything
