Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq BL2420U has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other PC screens of a comparable spec and age to this LCD screen.

We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC Q3277PQU (£324.99), and the Asus MG278Q (£399.99) is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Acer H277HU.
