Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other small monitors that were launched around the same time as this flatpanel monitor, the Benq BL912 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC display to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Edge10 ET190a, or the Planar PLL2010MW (£81.49) is also worth considering.
