Reasons For

7 Reasons For
16% bigger display diagonal Edit
The Asus PB287 is a 28" PC monitor. That's 4.4" bigger than the Samsung NC241 (23.6"). 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.

Brighter display brightness Edit
The Asus PB287 is a 330 cd/m² display brightness PC monitor. That's 30 cd/m² brighter than the Samsung NC241 (300 cd/m²).
Hugely faster response time Edit
The Asus PB287 has a response time of 1ms, but the Samsung NC241 is a 5ms response time PC monitor (4ms 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.

50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Asus PB287 is a 4W RMS rated audio power PC monitor. That's 2W higher than the Samsung NC241 (2W). 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.
