We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this flatpanel monitor and we think the AOC G2770[plb_2305284_price], the Benq BL2411[plb_1541459_price], or the Philips 241P4[plb_1485096_price] is also worth considering.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D that might also be worth looking at include the Benq XL2411[plb_2130532_price] which also has a higher rating.
