We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available including because of it's better review score, the iiyama XB2780HSU[plb_1370714_price], the NEC MultiSync EA244[plb_2270820_price], or the Philips 275C5[plb_2497492_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG 29UB55 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 29UB55 which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama B2776HDS[plb_1519015_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Acer B276H[plb_2590831_price], or the Philips 272S4[plb_2563161_price] is also worth considering.
