As someone living in a new country since some months ago, all the multimedia equipment I have is a notebook. So, I am planning to spend some few euros to improve my movies/TV shows watching experience.
My idea is to get a PC monitor with in-built speakers or a PC monitor + speakers, plus chromecast (as I don't care about TV channels, so only the screen is enough for me instead of buying a TV). Also, even though I will put the monitor near my bed to watch movies, for the rest of the time it will be used as my notebook screen to play games (I have been playing only casually, so I won't go for a 144hz).
Well, the help I need is:
Firstly, is it worth to get a monitor with in-built speakers?
I have been looking at 24" IPS screens (with 60hz as I said before), and it seems a great choice without speakers (but with audio output) would be the LG 23.8" LED 24MP68VQ-P, for 150 euros. And the ones with speakers, the Philips 24" LED - 246E7QDAB for 170 euros or the LG 24" LED 24MP88HV-S for 214 euros. Are there any better options around this price range?
If monitor + speakers is the option to go, what kind of non-expensive speakers should I get those days? I haven't used one for the last 10 years at least lol
A lack of cables would be appreciated, and I won't be able to use one that gets its power through USB, as I want to be able to watch things far from my notebook (because of shit battery, I would need to connect it to the power source everytime I want to watch something). Well, unless if connecting the USB to a smartphone charger works :thinking:
Does it work well with PC monitors?
Thank you in advance for whoever tries to help me.
