5 Reasons For for Choosing the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC

Larger Display Resolution

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the Asus VE228H and the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK, which is twice as large display resolution as the AOC E950SWN (1366 x 768 (WXGA) pixels) and twice as large display resolution as the Philips Brilliance 19S4 (1280 x 1024 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 (20000000:1) Dynamic Contrast Ratio

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC has an ultra high (20000000:1) dynamic contrast ratio (as are the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4), whereas the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK 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.

Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so does the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK. That's 18° wider than the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 (160°). 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.

8° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as does the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK), however the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 are all only 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (8° narrower). 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.

HDCP

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC has an HDCP (as do the Asus VE228H, the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK and the Philips Brilliance 19S4), however the AOC E950SWN does not have this feature. More ...

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC

21% Smaller Display Diagonal

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC has a display diagonal of 21.5" (as does the Asus VE228H), however the AOC E950SWN is a 18.5" PC monitor (3" smaller), the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is a 27" PC monitor (5.5" bigger) and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 is a 19" PC monitor (2.5" smaller). 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.

28% Slower Response Time

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC is an 8ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms slower than the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H, the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 (5ms). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC does not have a built-in speaker, but the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H, the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 do. 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 UltraSharp U2212HMC has received a Kagoo Score of 77, however the Asus VE228H scored 82 and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 scored 79.

$60 More Expensive

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC is more expensive than the Asus VE228H by $60.

Less Retailers

Only 1 seller sell the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC, whereas 4 sellers sell the Asus VE228H and 2 sellers sell the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
10 Months Older

The DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC is older than the Philips Brilliance 19S4 by 10 months.

Worse Brand

DELL PC monitors have an average rating of only 94.1%, whereas Asus has an average rating of 95%.

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

12 Reasons For for Choosing the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK

Bigger Display Diagonal

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a display diagonal of 27", but the AOC E950SWN is only a 18.5" PC monitor (8.5" smaller), the Asus VE228H and the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC are both only 21.5" PC monitors (5.5" smaller) and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 is only a 19" PC monitor (8" smaller). 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.

Larger Display Resolution

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the Asus VE228H and the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC, which is twice as large display resolution as the AOC E950SWN (1366 x 768 (WXGA) pixels) and twice as large display resolution as the Philips Brilliance 19S4 (1280 x 1024 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.

Faster Response Time

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is a 5ms response time PC monitor, and so do the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4. That's 3ms faster than the DELL UltraSharp 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.

10% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so does the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC. That's 18° wider than the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 (160°). 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.

Slightly Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a horizontal viewing angle of 178° (as does the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC), but the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 are all only 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (8° narrower). 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.

HDMI

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has an HDMI (as does the Asus VE228H), whereas the AOC E950SWN, the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 do not have this feature. More ...

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specialised interface for transferring high quality audio & visual data from a data source (such as a DVD player or computer) to a TV or monitor.

An HDMI connection on your monitor allows for extremely high-quality audio/visual transmission from a computer or DVD player, meaning your films will sound and look the best they can be.

Built-in USB Hub

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a built-in USB hub, however the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H, the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC and the Philips Brilliance 19S4 do not. More ...

'USB Hub' indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Headphone Out

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a headphone out (as does the Philips Brilliance 19S4), however the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC do not have this feature. More ...

'Headphone Out' denotes whether the monitor has an audio passthrough, allowing your to plug headphones directly into the monitor, and have the sound from your computer run through them.

A direct headphone out is helpful if you want to listen to music from your computer - it means you can use a headset without having to rummage under your desk to plug the cable into the back of your computer.

HDCP

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has an HDCP (as do the Asus VE228H, the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC and the Philips Brilliance 19S4), but the AOC E950SWN does not have this feature. More ...

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Built-in Speaker

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a built-in speaker (as do the AOC E950SWN, the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4), but the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC does not 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.

One More Speaker

The number of speakers on the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is two (as do the Asus VE228H and the Philips Brilliance 19S4), but the AOC E950SWN only has one speaker. More ...

We do not know the number of speakers on the DELL UltraSharp U2212HMC. It is possible that it does not have any speakers.

The number of speakers that this monitor has.

More speakers means that the monitor will be able to play music and sounds louder, and with better audio clarity.

The energy efficiency rating of the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is "A", but the rating of the Asus VE228H is "C".

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK

Only Very High (25000:1) Dynamic Contrast Ratio

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 retailers sells the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK, however 4 stores sell the Asus VE228H. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
