The VG248QE has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include a cheaper PC screen such as the Benq BL2411 (£206.99) or you might consider a higher rated PC screen such as the AOC G2770 (£219.99).
