Most comparable spec PC displays that were launched around the same time as the G227HQL do not have a built-in camera. The G227HQL is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to consider including the HP EliteDisplay E240c ($229.35), or the Asus VK248H ($183.99).

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL UP2715K ($1,618.33) is also worth considering.
