Most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months have a built-in speaker(s), however the Asus PG248Q does not have a built-in speaker(s).
It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq PD2700Q[plb_3720982_price], the Wortmann AG 2765W PV[plb_3341980_price], or the Asus MX27[plb_3346408_price].

Most new medium monitors do not have a built-in camera. The Asus PG248Q is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
