Alternative LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider include the Asus MK241[plb_2332619_price], or the Viewsonic VG2428WM[plb_1530993_price] which also has a higher rating.

If you want an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Asus VG23AH[plb_1411330_price], the AOC d2757Ph[plb_1515695_price], or the Benq XL2411T[plb_1522088_price] which also has a higher rating.
