Fine if you are planning to use it in France” but even so he rated the product 40 out of 100.

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(s)

The iiyama E2278H has a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other PC displays that have been available for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at including the iiyama XUB2390HS-B1[plb_2660491_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC display and we think the Philips 273V5[plb_1569608_price], or the AOC i2367[plb_1947779_price] is also worth considering.
