LED Display Type
This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out more than two years ago.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think the AOC E2050S[plb_1412284_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Philips 226V4 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been around for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper PC screen such as the Neovo RX-32[plb_1904891_price] or you might consider a higher rated PC screen such as the HP Compaq LA2206[plb_1467324_price].
We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Hannspree HS221HPB[plb_2415573_price].
