It is worth considering alternative PC screens which also have a built-in speaker including the Eizo Foris FS2434[plb_2367743_price] which is also cheaper.
Not 3D Compatible
The DELL U2410 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.
