Like most of the other similar spec PC screens that were released more than two years ago, the Philips 242G5DJEB does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Eizo Flexscan EV2336W[plb_1716850_price], or the NEC MultiSync EA234[plb_1609015_price] or the AOC I2757F[plb_1402268_price] are also worth considering.
