Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other PC displays that are a similar age to the VC279 which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the Asus VC279 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer V276HLC ($169.99), or the Philips 221S6QYKMB/00 which is cheaper.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Samsung S27E450 ($197.00) is also worth considering.
