4 Reasons For

LED Display

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display, which is the most commonly found display on small monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The HKC 1976A has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 1976A do not have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus VB198T[plb_3318791_price].

There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Asus VB198TL[plb_3777553_price], or the Hannspree HE196APB[plb_2936443_price].
