10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The HP Z30i does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z30i do have a built-in speaker.

It is worth also looking at other PC displays which also have a built-in speaker including the Acer Predator Z35[plb_3049491_price], the Eizo FlexScan EV2730Q[plb_2746829_price], or the Asus PA328[plb_2731937_price] which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader to this PC display and we think the DELL UP2715K[plb_2678878_price] is also worth considering.
