The HP Z27x does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other new comparable spec PC screens do have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the AOC AG352UCG (£790.79); or the Samsung C34F791WQU (£799.96) are also worth considering.
