6 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other small monitors that were launched around the same time as the LMD-1530W which do not have a built-in speaker, the LMD-1530W has a built-in speaker.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer FT200HQL[plb_2326637_price] is also worth considering.
