This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on PC screens of this age and type.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The MultiSync E171 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other small monitors that came out more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker and we think the Edge10 C185k, and the Acer B196WL ($162.99) which is cheaper; or the Benq BL902 which has better reviews are also worth considering.
