Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The XB271HKbmiprz has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC displays of this type and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) to this PC monitor and we think because of their better review scores, the 275P4VYKEB (£685.58), and the BDM3490UC (£688.96) both from Philips or the Eizo FlexScan EV2750 (£657.22) are also worth considering.
