Good Picture Quality

Has a Built-In Speaker
The E2280HS has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other PC displays of this spec and age do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper PC monitor such as the HKC 2265A[plb_2792543_price] or you might consider a higher scoring PC monitor such as the Hanns.G HS221[plb_2361044_price].
We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Hannspree HL226HPB[plb_2400523_price] is also worth considering.
Has Four Cables Included
The number of cables included found on the E2280HS is more than most LCD screens of this spec and age. This flatpanel monitor has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on flatpanel monitors of this age and type. The cables included "Audio (3.5mm)", "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this iiyama flatpanel monitor.
The iiyama E2280HS is one of the lighter comparable spec PC screens that have been available for around the same time as the E2280HS (only 3.3 kilograms) amongst medium monitors of this age. The lightest flatpanel monitor of this spec and age is 3g weight, the heaviest is 39kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg.
The iiyama E2280HS is quite narrow (only 509.5 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the E2280HS. The widths of similar spec PC screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to the E2280HS range from 52mm to 6,500mm.
Other PC monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the LG 22EN33[plb_1500707_price] (509mm and cheaper), or the Benq GW2260[plb_1436727_price] (510mm and cheaper).
11 Reasons Against

Unacceptable Noise Level
One customer wrote that it was not noisy. Damian Gasior wrote on Amazon “The speakers are not loud enough-do not why exactly”.
£4.39 Price Increase
In the last 59 days the E2280HS has increased in price by £4.39.
Not 3D Compatible
The iiyama E2280HS is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other PC screens that have been available for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the HP LP2065[plb_1468281_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
