REVIEW: Iiyama ProLite E2200WS-B1 Part 5
The Iiyama E2200WS-B1 is very well-made and the parts of the cover fit cleanly together. We discovered no cracks or creaking in the cover during testing. However, the simple plastic base and the stiff tilting function spoil the overall impression somewhat.
The connections are located in the back of the monitor to the right and left and are very accessible. The Iiyama E2200WS-B1 includes the following connections: DVI-D (digital), D-Sub (analogue), audio input and a power connection. There is also an earphone connection on the right side of the monitor, located towards the edge at the bottom.
The picture shows the DVI-D input on the left and the D-Sub VGA input on the right.

The small speakers -with a 1 watt capacity each- are built into the bottom frame on the right and left. The sound is acceptable but the bass is very weak. However, the speakers cannot compete with good external box speakers.
The speakers are integrated into the left and right sides of the bottom frame.

The buttons of the Iiyama E2200WS-B1 are black like the cover, but the silver labelling stands out well even in poor lighting. The buttons have good tactile feedback and are of a good size so that they can be used easily.
Buttons on the E2200WS-B1
The OSD (On-Screen Display) is comprehensive and well-structured. The menus and functions can be selected easily and quickly using four buttons. Using the OSD becomes intuitive after a very short period of getting used to it.
The AUTO button changes the automatic settings to analogue output directly (i.e. without going through the OSD). The EXIT button closes a setting or allows the user to exit a menu option. The EXIT button also calls up the volume control menu directly.
The and buttons are used for navigating through the menus and also call up the contrast and brightness menus directly. The arrow buttons also allow the user to change setting values in the OSD. The ENTER button activates menu options, functions and settings. The button switches the monitor on and off.
Here are some pictures and information on the OSD functions:
