3 Reasons For
4% bigger display diagonal Edit
The Asus PB287 is a 28" PC monitor. That's 1" bigger than the Acer K272HU (28"). 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.

Three times faster response time Edit
The Asus PB287 has a response time of 1ms, but the Acer K272HU is a 4ms 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.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Asus PB287 has two HDMI ports, however the Acer K272HU only has one HDMI port.
