Reasons For

2 Reasons For

4 Reasons For
A lot faster response time Edit
The DELL U2413 has a response time of 6ms (as does the DELL U2415), however the DELL U2412M and the DELL UltraSharp 24 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.
