5 Reasons For for Choosing the DELL U2212HMC

1920 X 1080 (1080p) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The DELL U2212HMC has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels (as are the Acer KA S220, the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM), whereas the Asus VE198T only has a display resolution of 1440 x 900 (WXGA+) pixels. More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Higher Contrast Ratio

The DELL U2212HMC has an ultra high (20000000:1) dynamic contrast ratio, and so are the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198T and the HP Compaq LE2202, but the NEC MultiSync EA273WM only has a very high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

A Little Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The DELL U2212HMC has a vertical viewing angle of 178° (as does the NEC MultiSync EA273WM), whereas the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198T and the HP Compaq LE2202 are all only 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitors (18° narrower). More ...

The vertical viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the screen can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The DELL U2212HMC is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so does the NEC MultiSync EA273WM. That's 8° wider than the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198T and the HP Compaq LE2202 (170°). More ...

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Newer by 20 Months

The DELL U2212HMC is three years newer than the Acer KA S220, three years newer than the Asus VE198T, 20 months newer than the HP Compaq LE2202 and two years newer than the NEC MultiSync EA273WM

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the DELL U2212HMC

5.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The DELL U2212HMC is a 21.5" PC monitor, and so do the Acer KA S220 and the HP Compaq LE2202. That's 2.5" bigger than the Asus VE198T (19") and 5.5" smaller than the NEC MultiSync EA273WM (27"). 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.

3ms Slower Response Time

The DELL U2212HMC has a response time of 8ms, however the Acer KA S220, the Asus VE198T, the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM are all 5ms response time PC monitors (3ms faster). 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.

Only Low (1000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The DELL U2212HMC has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM), but the Acer KA S220 and the Asus VE198T have an ultra high typical contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The DELL U2212HMC does not have a built-in speaker (As do the the Acer KA S220 and the HP Compaq LE2202), however the Asus VE198T and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM have this feature. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Worse Kagoo Score

The DELL U2212HMC has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Acer KA S220 scored 82, the Asus VE198T scored 80 and the HP Compaq LE2202 scored 79.

More Expensive by $60

The DELL U2212HMC is $60 more expensive than the Acer KA S220 and $25 more expensive than the Asus VE198T.

Fewer Sellers

The DELL U2212HMC is only stocked by 1 retailer, but the Acer KA S220 is stocked by 2 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Worse Brand

DELL PC monitors have an average rating of only 93.9%, but Acer has an average rating of 95%, Asus has an average rating of 94% and HP has an average rating of 94.8%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the U2212HMC in the US is $129.75 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Acer KA S220

Larger Display Resolution

The Acer KA S220 has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the DELL U2212HMC, the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM, which is twice as large display resolution as the Asus VE198T (1440 x 900 (WXGA+) pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Ultra High (100000000:1) Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The Acer KA S220 has an ultra high (100000000:1) dynamic contrast ratio (as are the Asus VE198T, the DELL U2212HMC and the HP Compaq LE2202), but the NEC MultiSync EA273WM only has a very high dynamic contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

38% Faster Response Time

The Acer KA S220 is a 5ms response time PC monitor, and so do the Asus VE198T, the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM. That's 3ms faster than the DELL U2212HMC (8ms). 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.

Higher Typical Contrast Ratio

The Acer KA S220 has an ultra high (100000000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so is the Asus VE198T, which is 3 times the typical contrast ratio of the DELL U2212HMC, the HP Compaq LE2202 and the NEC MultiSync EA273WM (low). More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.
