Reasons For

5 Reasons For
60% faster response time Edit
The Asus MX279H is a 5msms response time PC monitor, and so does the Samsung S27D590. That's 3ms faster than the DELL P2714H (5msms) and 1ms faster than the DELL S2715H (5msms). Read more

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Two HDMI ports Edit
The number of HDMI ports on the Asus MX279H is two, and so does the Samsung S27D590, but the DELL S2715H only has one HDMI port.
$294 cheaper
The Asus MX279H costs $234.99, whereas the Samsung S27D590 is $529.00.
