Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 220C1SB/05 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other PC monitors of a similar spec and age to this PC monitor do have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Samsung 320MXN-3, the Wortmann AG Terra 2412W, or the AOC Q2770PQU are also worth considering.
