We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the iiyama XU2390HS[plb_2204569_price] is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Asus VX238[plb_1564476_price], or the iiyama X2483HSU[plb_1605035_price].
