Reasons For

5 Reasons For
3% bigger display diagonal 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.

1% larger viewable size diagonal Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 is a 546.1mm viewable size diagonal PC monitor. That's 0.10000000000002mm larger than the Viewsonic VX2252 ().
Bigger display diagonal (metric) Edit
Viewsonic VA2265 is 55.88cm display diagonal. That's 1.27cm bigger than the Viewsonic VX2252 ().
25% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 has an RMS rated power of 4W, and so does the Viewsonic VX2252. That's 1W higher than the Viewsonic VX2270Smh (3W). 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.

VESA mounting Edit
The Viewsonic VA2265 supports VESA mounting, and so does the Viewsonic VX2252, however the Viewsonic VX2270Smh does not.
8 Reasons For
1% bigger viewable size, vertical Edit
Viewsonic VX2252 is 267mm viewable height. That's 0.30000000000001mm bigger than the Viewsonic VA2265 ().

The Viewsonic VX2252 is a 2ms response time PC monitor. That's 4.5ms faster than the Viewsonic VA2265 (7ms) and 5ms faster than the Viewsonic VX2270Smh (7ms). 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.
