Other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper PC displays such as the iiyama E2483HS[plb_1616494_price].

We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama B2283HS[plb_2323545_price], or the Viewsonic VX2452[plb_1618337_price] is also worth considering.
