A Bit Expensive

Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The HP L1906 does not have a built-in speaker(s), although this is within the context that most of the other small monitors that were launched around the same time as this PC screen also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

It is worth considering alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Hanns.G HL205 (£72.99), the AOC E950 (£74.99), or the Edge10 ET190a (£64.95).
