9 Reasons For

LG Has Good Reviews for Its PC Monitors

On average LG medium monitors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all PC screens built by LG.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The 31MU97Z-B has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC screens of this spec and age.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the Eizo FlexScan EV2730Q ($1,420.00), the Acer Predator Z35 ($1,082.16), and the Asus PA328 ($949.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
