8 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The iiyama E2483HS is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the E2483HS are also not 3D compatible.

Quite Narrow Vertical Viewing Angle
The vertical viewing angles of flatpanel monitors of this type and age range from 50° to 180°. With a vertical viewing angle of only 160 degrees, the E2483HS has a fairly narrow vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Narrow Horizontal Viewing Angle
At only 170 degrees, the iiyama E2483HS has a fairly narrow horizontal viewing angle compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar age and spec to the E2483HS. The horizontal viewing angles of medium monitors that were released more than two years ago range from 60° to 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The E2483HS has a fairly dim display brightness (only 250 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other PC displays of this age and spec. The average display brightness of similar spec LCD screens that have been around for a comparable time to the E2483HS is 290 cd/m².
5 Other reasons to consider the iiyama E2483HS
Average Running Costs
Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the E2483HS will cost £42 over 5 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 795 PC monitors of a similar age and spec.
