Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The SD-Z225 has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other PC displays of a similar age and type to the SD-Z225 do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq BL2710[plb_1729060_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Samsung T27D390[plb_2404389_price], or the LG 24CAV23K-B[plb_1604810_price].
