Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Philips 240B4 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other medium monitors that have been available for more than a year.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Wortmann AG TERRA 2446W (£262.27) which is cheaper; or the iiyama GB2788HS (£269.99) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC monitor and we think the LG 24MT58DF (£279.06) is also worth considering.
