Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 239C4 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out around the same time as this LCD screen.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the AOC I2460 (£201.35) which has better reviews.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the 240S4 (£208.00), or the 284E5 (£209.99) both from Philips is also worth considering.
