Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other PC displays that were launched around the same time as the u3477, the AOC u3477 does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the BDM4065UC[pl_2889761_price], or the 298P4[pl_1608300_price] both from Philips or the iiyama XB2776QS[plb_1490325_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
After checking the price of 534 PC monitors of this spec and age they range in price from £51 to £5,421. We think that this flatpanel monitor looks expensive compared to other PC monitors of this spec and age.
Not 3D Compatible
The AOC u3477 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the u3477 are also not 3D compatible.
PC displays which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Philips 272G5DYEB[plb_3175233_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the UP2414Q[pl_2251567_price], or the U3014[pl_1655695_price] both from DELL or the Benq BL3201[plb_2558150_price] is also worth considering.
