It may also be worth also looking at one of the other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq XL2430[plb_2417361_price], or the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price].

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think the Benq BL2420U[plb_2885076_price], or the Asus MG279Q[plb_2900144_price] is also worth considering.
