Reasons For

2 Reasons For
A lot faster response time Edit
The DELL U2415 has a response time of 6ms, however the DELL U2417H and the DELL UltraSharp 25 are both 8ms response time PC monitors (2ms 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.
