The Acer CB290C has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for a similar time to the CB290C do not have a built-in speaker.

Alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include the NEC MultiSync EA244[plb_2270820_price] which has better reviews; or the Asus VG27AH[plb_1426322_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer B286[plb_2204505_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
