Good Picture Quality

One customer said that it had a wide viewing angle. Geoff Grove gave the product a rating of 5 stars and wrote on Amazon “Absolutely impressed - straight out of the box, plugged in next to my old faithful Ilyama Prolite E431 it blows it away! Picture so much brighter, good viewing angle” in their review of the iiyama E2278H.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the E2278H which do not have a built-in speaker, the iiyama E2278H has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Acer B226HQL[plb_2715536_price] or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the Benq EW2440[plb_2076167_price] are also worth considering.

Other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the Philips 273V5[plb_1569608_price].
