6 Reasons For
Three times faster response time Edit
The Viewsonic VX2252 is a 2msms response time PC monitor. That's 4.5ms faster than the Viewsonic VA2252Sm (7msms) and 5ms faster than the Viewsonic VX2270Smh (7msms). 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.
