Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer H257HU has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been available for a similar time to this LCD screen.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) to this PC screen and we think the iiyama XB2780HSU which is cheaper; or the iiyama XB2485WSU which has better reviews are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to consider including the Samsung LS27D590CS.
