Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The AS242W-BK has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and spec to this LCD screen.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the iiyama X2483HSU-B2 (£136.98) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC monitor and we think the AOC E2475PWJ (£137.99), or the iiyama B2480HS-B2 (£138.55) are also worth considering.
