We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think cheaper LCD screens such as the Viewsonic VA2759-smh ($189.99) is also worth considering.
It is worth considering alternative PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Asus BE229QLB-G, or the LG 28MT47D.
