The Benq SW2700PT does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other comparable spec PC displays that came out more than a year ago.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the LG 34UC87C[plb_2969397_price], or the Acer X34[plb_3314093_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

The Benq SW2700PT is not 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that came out more than a year ago are also not 3D.
