The 27MB85R-B does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens of a comparable age and spec to the 27MB85R-B also do not have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the UP2414Q, or the U3014 ($1,499.99) both from DELL or the Asus PA279 ($749.00) which is also higher rated.
