Chart

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on similar spec flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to it.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC screen and we think a cheaper PC screen such as the AOC E950, and the Acer V196HQL ($55.00) or you might consider a higher scoring PC screen such as the HP W1972a are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other similar spec PC screens that have been available for a comparable time to the 196V4L which do not have a built-in speaker, the Philips 196V4L has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including a cheaper PC display such as the AOC e960Srd or you might consider a higher scoring PC display such as the HP W1972a.

We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Fujitsu L19T-4.
