We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think the Philips 17S4LSB/01[plb_1591162_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think cheaper PC monitors such as the I960SRDA[pl_3244069_price], and the I960[pl_2746828_price] both from AOC is also worth considering.

There are a number of other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Samsung S19E200BR[plb_3897846_price].
