Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq RL2240 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years which have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Samsung 320MXN-3, the Wortmann AG Terra 2412W, or the Fujitsu B20T-6 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
