Reasons For

6 Reasons For
3% bigger screen size Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 is a 22"" PC monitor. That's 0.5" bigger than the Viewsonic VX2252 and the Viewsonic VX2270Smh (21.5""). Read more

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Bigger display diagonal Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 is a 55.88cmcm display diagonal PC monitor. That's 1.27cm bigger than the Viewsonic VX2252 ().
25% higher RMS rated audio power Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 is a 4WW RMS rated audio power PC monitor, and so does the Viewsonic VX2252. That's 1W higher than the Viewsonic VX2270Smh (3WW). Read more

RMS rated power is a true measure of the power of the audio system on a monitor. It also sometimes referred to as the Continuous Power. RMS stands for Root Mean Square and is measured in Watts (voltage x current). The RMS rated power is the highest amount of power that an amplifier can deliver continuously without failing.

A higher RMS rated power will provide audio that is louder and cleaner.

23% shorter Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 has a height of 319.4mmmm. That's 7.8mm shorter than the Viewsonic VX2252 (392mmmm) and 72.6mm shorter than the Viewsonic VX2270Smh (392mmmm).
Cheaper by $1
The Viewsonic VA2265 costs $109.99, whereas the Viewsonic VX2252 is $110.99 and the Viewsonic VX2270Smh is $129.99.

5 Reasons For
1% bigger viewable height Edit
The Viewsonic VX2252 is a 267mmmm viewable height PC monitor. That's 0.30000000000001mm bigger than the Viewsonic VA2265 ().
3x faster response time Edit
The Viewsonic VX2252 is a 2msms response time PC monitor. That's 4.5ms faster than the Viewsonic VA2265 (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.

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

25% higher RMS rated audio power Edit
The Viewsonic VX2252 has an RMS rated audio power of 4WW (as does the Viewsonic VA2265), however the Viewsonic VX2270Smh is only a 3WW RMS rated audio power PC monitor (1W lower). Read more
