We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Hanns.G HL226 (£89.99) which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
The iiyama E2280HS is fairly light (only 3.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other PC displays that came out around the same time as the E2280HS. The lightest medium monitor that has been around for a similar time to the E2280HS is 3g weight and the heaviest is 39kg.

There are a number of other 509.5mm wide LCD screens currently available that you might want to look at including the iiyama B2280HS (£131.29) which has a better Rating.
If you would consider a PC monitor with a wider width then you might want to look at the LG 22EN33 (£81.75) (509mm) which is also cheaper.

The E2280HS does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the E2280HS also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the HP Compaq LA2206 (£83.99) is also worth considering.
