Viewsonic Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors
Viewsonic medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all PC screens Viewsonic is one of the better rated brands.
Just Released Six Months Ago
Viewsonic only released the VX2778-SMHD six months ago. Newer LCD screens like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

Other PC screens that have an LED Display currently available that you might also want to look at include the Philips 240B7QPTEB[plb_3757125_price] which is cheaper; or the iiyama GB2783QSU[plb_3810040_price] which has better reviews.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The VX2778-SMHD has a built-in speaker. Most of the other flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months also have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think cheaper PC displays such as the Acer XB241H[plb_3314884_price], and the DELL S2817Q[plb_3307743_price] is also worth considering.
We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the AOC Q2775PQU[plb_3301606_price] is also worth considering.
