It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the 22MT45D[pl_2231034_price], or the 23CAT42K[pl_1569047_price] both from LG or the Fujitsu B24W-7[plb_2473880_price] which also has a higher rating.

If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might want to look at the Philips 272G5DYEB/93[plb_3175233_price], or the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price] which also has a higher rating.
