Has a Built-In Speaker

The Philips 221B6 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC displays of this type and age do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq RL2455 (£129.99), the HP ProDisplay P221 (£146.39), and the iiyama XU2390HS (£134.30) is also worth considering.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the AOC i2367Fm, the HP LP2065 (£110.40), or the Acer XB240H Abpr which also has a higher rating.
