Like most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the S242HL, the Acer S242HL does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Acer B226HQL[plb_1538972_price]; or the Philips 221P6[plb_2497489_price] are also worth considering.
