LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC displays of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available including cheaper LCD screens such as the DELL E2314H[plb_2095841_price], or the Samsung S23E650K[plb_3062083_price].

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Fujitsu B22T-7[plb_2791380_price] is also worth considering.
