Couple questions about lcd monitors

Does anyone have a monitor with speakers built in?
How do you like them?
Do you have to have the monitor on to listen to music?

I bought a 17" NEC to test out for a while....they had ones with speakers for pretty much the same price, but I'm not sure if they're even worth it. Probably not nearly as good as regular speakers...

I don't have an LCD monitor with speakers but I can't imagine it will be any better than say laptop speakers.

Speakers built into LCD's are no good regardless of brand or whatever. Take the money you save on a no speaker version of an LCD and use it to buy good computer speakers or towards home theatre system

Also, unit without speakers is smaller

My LCD at work doesn't have built in speakers but it does have a sound bar (Dell Ultrasharp). It's junk.......the problem is a lack of bass. Zuffy was right in his comparison to laptop speakers. Of course, if your not listening to music, movies, etc. they work just fine.
