Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other PC displays of a similar spec and age to the BL2405 which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the Benq BL2405 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) to this LCD screen and we think cheaper PC displays such as the iiyama E2480HS is also worth considering.

Other PC screens which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider include the E2273HDS, or the E2278H both from iiyama.
