We think you might also be interested in other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the AOC e2260Swhu[plb_1364850_price], the Acer G247H[plb_2383088_price], or the Philips 221TE5LB/00[plb_1546652_price] which is also higher rated.

It is worth considering alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the NEC MD211[plb_2590565_price], the Philips C272P4[plb_2159253_price], or the Viewsonic VG2437mc[plb_1464473_price].
