Chart

Good Connectivity

One iiyama XB2485WSU reviewer said in their reviews that it was good in terms of USB connections. Two years ago C S. wrote “What was an added bonus is the USB hub, this has reduced the amount of wires from the back of the pc”.

Four USB Type-A Downstream Ports

The iiyama XB2485WSU is a four USB Type-A downstream port flatpanel monitor. Most of the other PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the XB2485WSU have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The most display resolution of the iiyama XB2485WSU is 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's 11% more display resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels PC display, which is the most frequently found display resolution. The best display resolution of all medium monitors that were released around the same time as the XB2485WSU is 2560 x 1600 pixels and the worst is 1366 x 768 pixels.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The XB2485WSU has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens of this age and type which do not have a built-in speaker.

Other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper PC monitors such as the Asus MX279H[plb_1460434_price], or the AOC I2757F[plb_1402268_price].

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the Asus VN279[plb_1596700_price] is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £32.20

The XB2485WSU has increased in price by £32.20 in the last 25 days.

Not 3D Compatible

The XB2485WSU is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the XB2485WSU are also not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Asus VG248QE[plb_1529549_price] or the Philips 278G4DHSD[plb_1499355_price], or the Benq XL2420[plb_1453626_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that are a similar age to the XB2485WSU do not have a built-in camera. The XB2485WSU is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The iiyama XB2485WSU does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have an integrated card reader.

It is worth considering alternative flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the DELL U2413[plb_1565290_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Audio Power

At only 1.5 Watts, the XB2485WSU has a fairly low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other comparable spec PC screens that came out more than two years ago. Medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the XB2485WSU have RMS rated audio powers of between 0.5W and 49W.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The iiyama XB2485WSU is one of the heavier PC monitors of this age and type (6.4 kilograms) amongst flatpanel monitors of this age. Across all the medium monitors that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 3g to 39kg.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the iiyama XB2485WSU

Running Costs Are OK

Chart

Released Over Four Years Ago

Iiyama released the XB2485WSU over four years ago.

LCD Display Type

The XB2485WSU has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and spec to it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available including the Philips 274E5[plb_1499782_price], the Benq BL2411[plb_1541459_price], or the LG 25UM65[plb_2194307_price] which is cheaper.

Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might also be worth considering include the AOC I2757F[plb_1402268_price] (LED and cheaper), or the Benq GW2765HT[plb_3034210_price] (LED and cheaper).

Average Width

With a width of 561 millimeters, the iiyama XB2485WSU has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and spec to the XB2485WSU.

Alternative PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the AOC I2757F[plb_1402268_price] (622mm and cheaper), the NEC EA224WMi[plb_1412543_price] (507mm and cheaper), or the DELL U2412M[plb_1448037_price] (556mm and cheaper).
