The UP2716D does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC screens of a similar type and age to the UP2716D do have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the LG 34UM67-P[plb_2998881_price], the Acer CB271HK[plb_3162241_price], or the Philips 241P6VPJKEB[plb_3021583_price].

The UP2716D is in the most expensive 18% of all 505 flatpanel monitors of a similar spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the UP2716D will cost £74 over 5 years to run.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The UP2716D does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the UP2716D also do not have a built-in camera.

+7 More reasons against

The lowest power consumption when in PowerSave mode of PC screens that were released around the same time as the UP2716D is 0.1W, the highest is 52W, and the average power consumption when in PowerSave mode is 6.3W.
