The Asus MX299 has an HDCP, whereas the LG 23CAV42K does not have an HDCP.
50 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Asus MX299 is a 300 cd/m² display brightness PC monitor. That's 50 cd/m² brighter than the LG 23CAV42K (250 cd/m²).
Faster response time Edit
The Asus MX299 has a response time of 5ms, however the LG 23CAV42K is a 14ms response time PC monitor (9ms 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.

67% higher RMS rated power Edit
Asus MX299 is 6W RMS rated audio power. That's 4W higher than the LG 23CAV42K (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.
