Philips Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Unlike most of the other similar spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as the 231P4 which do not have a built-in speaker(s), the Philips 231P4 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this PC display to all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the AOC Q2577PWQ ($318.83), the LG 27MB67PY, and the Asus MX259 ($188.99) is also worth considering.
