The E2280HS has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in speaker(s).
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Viewsonic VA2265[plb_2778955_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We think you might also be interested in other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the T24B350EW[pl_1388279_price], or the TC241W[pl_1471612_price] both from Samsung.

This PC display has an AC cables included, which is the most frequently found cables included found on medium monitors that came out more than two years ago. The cables includeds "Audio (3.5mm)", "DVI" and "VGA" are also found on this iiyama PC screen.
The lightest flatpanel monitor of this spec and age is 3g weight and the heaviest is 39kg. At only 3.3 kilograms, the E2280HS is quite light compared to most of the other PC displays of a comparable age and type to the E2280HS.
9 Reasons Against
