On average LG medium monitors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all PC screens built by LG.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 31MU97Z-B has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC screens of this spec and age.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV2730Q[plb_2746829_price], the Acer Predator Z35[plb_3049491_price], and the Asus PA328[plb_2731937_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
