We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think because of their better review scores, the LG 22MT44, and the HKC 2412A (£104.90) are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative PC displays which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the LG 22MB35DM-I (£105.35).
