Has a Built-In Speaker
The ENVY 34 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the ENVY 34.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the 34UC97 (£719.99), and the 34UC97C (£649.98) both from LG or you might consider a higher Rating flatpanel monitor such as the Benq BL3201 (£650.71) are also worth considering.
