Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z27x have a built-in speaker, however the HP Z27x does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the HP ENVY 34[plb_2697216_price], or the Philips BDM3275UP[plb_2997137_price] or the Acer XR341CK[plb_2972210_price] are also worth considering.
