A LED monitor with integrated speakers is not really difficult to find in the market. Various monitor manufacturer has equipped the latest monitor products with internal speaker, either mono or stereo. However, not all monitors have good quality speakers.

Obviously, one of the most noticeable part of this monitor is the speakers it uses, which is located at the bottom of the screen. The speakers itself have large size, with height about 4 cm.

HP Envy 24 features thin bezel design (5 mm), which is ideal to support multi-screen configuration. In addition, the surface of this monitor is dominated with black-gray-white color and has been equipped with edge-to-edge glass screen that makes it look more attractive.
