Like most of the other PC monitors of this spec and age, the Acer G257HL has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think because of it's better review score, the VX239H[pl_2905125_price], and the VN247[pl_1473074_price] both from Asus is also worth considering.

Over all this monitor far exceeded my expectations. The very small bevil is very nice to have in a 2 or even 3 screen set up. Highly recommend to PC builders, gamers, and enthusiasts...
