Most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 27UD68-P have a built-in speaker, however the LG 27UD68-P does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC display and we think the LG 29UM68-P[plb_3287895_price] or the Asus PB287Q[plb_3869741_price] are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The 27UD68-P is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for the last year are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price] which is also cheaper.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in camera and we think the Philips 241B7QPJKEB[plb_3861282_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 27UD68-P do not have an integrated card reader. The 27UD68-P is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
