4 Reasons For

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec LCD screens that were launched more than a year ago.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display and we think cheaper flatpanel monitors such as the Hannspree HE196APB[plb_2936443_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The HKC 1976A has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other LCD screens of this type and age which do not have a built-in speaker.

Alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to look at include the Hannspree HE196APB[plb_2936443_price] which is cheaper; or the V7 L18500WS-9K[plb_3244151_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at including the Philips 200V4LAB2[plb_3070317_price].
