3 Other reasons to consider the iiyama XB2485WSU

OK Running Costs

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the XB2485WSU will cost £93 over 8 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 1,019 LCD screens of this age and type.

Chart

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when iiyama released the XB2485WSU.

LCD Display

The XB2485WSU has an LCD display which is better than most medium monitors that have been around for more than two years. Most flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago have an LED display.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think the DELL U2410[plb_1448035_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq BL2411[plb_1541459_price], and the Eizo Foris FG2421[plb_2035593_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If you would prefer an LCD screen with a better display type then you might also want to consider the Philips 241P4[plb_1485096_price] (LED), or the DELL U2913WM[plb_1590777_price] (LED) which is also cheaper.
