Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG 29WR30 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper LCD screen such as the Benq BL2700 (£273.82) or you might consider a better rated LCD screen such as the Benq GW2765HT (£279.29) are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Asus MX299Q.
