Like most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the VA2465, the Viewsonic VA2465 has a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VC239H[plb_2977758_price], the Philips 240V5QDAB[plb_2943026_price], and the Acer 42HQL[plb_3021348_price] is also worth considering.

This PC display has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on LCD screens of this spec and age. The cable included "VGA" is also found on this flatpanel monitor.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL UP2715K[plb_2678878_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
