Reasons For

3 Reasons For
4ms faster response time Edit
The Acer G247HYL has a response time of 4ms, whereas the Asus VS24 is a 5ms response time PC monitor (1ms slower), the DELL U2412M is an 8ms response time PC monitor (4ms slower) and the HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only is a 7ms response time PC monitor (3ms 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.

Over five years the Acer G247HYL only costs $52.25 to run whereas the Asus VS24 costs $62.34 to run (19% more), the DELL U2412M costs $78.43 to run (50% more) and the HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only costs $62.34 to run (19% more). Read more
