Reasons For

1 Reason For
1ms faster response time Edit
The Acer B276 has a response time of 5ms, whereas the Viewsonic VX2858 is a 6ms response time PC monitor (1ms slower). 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.
