It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Philips 231P4Q which has better reviews; or the LG 29UB55 ($259.95) which is cheaper.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this PC monitor and we think the iiyama B2776HDS-W2 is also worth considering.
