Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq GL2706PQ has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other new comparable spec LCD screens.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer XG270HU (£244.97) which has better reviews; or the NEC E241N (£242.54) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC screen and we think the LG 27BK750Y (£249.98) is also worth considering.
