Has a Built-In Speaker

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama B2783QSU-B1[plb_3011412_price], and the Acer H257HU[plb_2712612_price] which has better reviews; or the LG 29UM67-P[plb_2916793_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
