Has a Built-In Speaker

The BDM3470UP has a built-in speaker. Most of the other PC displays that have been on the market for around the same time as the BDM3470UP do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker currently available including the iiyama B2888UHSU which is cheaper; or the LG 29EA93 which has better reviews.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think the LG 34UM65 is also worth considering.
