6 Reasons For

NEC Has Excellent Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

PC monitors built by NEC are some of the best PC monitors according to average user and expert reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The E171M-BK has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the E171M-BK do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the NEC MultiSync EA193[plb_2073041_price], and the Philips 19B4[plb_1395263_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
