Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hanns.G HL205 has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other PC screens of a comparable age and type to this PC screen do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) to this PC screen and we think the Hannspree HE196APB (£63.50) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to look at include the Planar PLL2010MW (£72.15), or the Hanns.G HP205 (£79.98).
