Other PC monitors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include a cheaper PC screen such as the Viewsonic VA2359-smh ($139.99), or the Benq GW2470HM or you might consider a higher scoring PC screen such as the Asus VP239H ($134.00).

The B246HYL has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that are a similar age to it. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this flatpanel monitor. The cables included AC|DisplayPort|HDMI|USB are also found on this PC screen.
