Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to the B2280HS, the iiyama B2280HS has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq BL2405.
