Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 221S3 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to this PC display which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Asus VE228TR (£107.14), the Viewsonic VG2439 (£108.90), or the Hanns.G HE245 (£105.99) are also worth considering.
