Chart

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that came out in the last year.

Alternative LCD screens that have an LED Display currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper PC displays such as the Benq GL2706PQ[plb_3720986_price], or the HP Pavilion 32[plb_3940045_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other latest LCD screens, the 34UM68-P has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the Acer XB241H[plb_3314884_price] or you might consider a better rated flatpanel monitor such as the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price] are also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to consider including the Viewsonic VX2778-SMHD[plb_3627684_price].

Fairly Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

Medium monitors that have been on the market for the last year have horizontal viewing angles of between -5° and 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°. The 34UM68-P has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst medium monitors of this age.
