9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The HP W1972a does not have a built-in speaker(s), although it is worth noting that most of the other small monitors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the DELL P2014H[plb_1740080_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
