This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that are a similar age to it.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the 231P4Q[pl_1394858_price], or the 272C4QPJKAB[pl_1532812_price] both from Philips or the AOC I2472[plb_2126699_price].
