LED Display Type
This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
There are a number of other LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available which you might also want to consider including the Philips 19B4 which has better reviews; or the Samsung SMT-1930 ($485.91) which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The B1980SD has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other PC screens that came out more than two years ago which do not have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the Philips 190BL1CB/93, the Asus VB199 ($123.99), or the Acer B196WL ($88.89) is also worth considering.
