7 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq EX3501R

HDMI

The Benq EX3501R has an HDMI (as do the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, the HP Z38C and the Samsung C49HG90), however the LG 38UC99W does 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.

Two HDMI Ports

The Benq EX3501R is a two HDMI port PC monitor, and so do the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, the LG 38UC99W and the Samsung C49HG90, whereas the HP Z38C only has one HDMI port. More ...

The number of HDMI ports the monitor has.

More HDMI ports means that you can plug in more devices (computer, games console, DVD player, etc) to the screen at once.

Picture-in-Picture Support

The Benq EX3501R features Picture-in-Picture support (as do the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, the LG 38UC99W and the Samsung C49HG90), but the HP Z38C does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Picture-In-Picture' indicates whether the monitor is able to show one smaller screen inside the main screen - usually down in a corner.

This is helpful for things like YouTube videos or Skype calls - being able to surf while you chat to people or watch cat videos!

$50 Cheaper

The Benq EX3501R is $249.01 cheaper than the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, $50.01 cheaper than the HP Z38C, $461.99 cheaper than the LG 38UC99W and $159.01 cheaper than the Samsung C49HG90.

Superior Energy Efficiency Rating

The energy efficiency rating of the Benq EX3501R is "A", whereas the rating of the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is "A", the rating of the HP Z38C is "B", the rating of the LG 38UC99W is "B" and the rating of the Samsung C49HG90 is "B".

6 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Tomshardware.com, Digitaltrends.com, Monitornerds.com, Playwares.com, Gamereactor.dk and Tweakers.net all gave the Benq EX3501R a better review score. More ...

Tomshardware.com: Benq EX3501R = 80% vs Samsung C49HG90 = 70%

Digitaltrends.com: Benq EX3501R = 90% vs Samsung C49HG90 = 80%

More Carefully Designed

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq EX3501R

14" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Benq EX3501R has a display diagonal of 35", whereas the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the HP Z38C are both 37.5" PC monitors (2.5" bigger), the LG 38UC99W is a 38" PC monitor (3" bigger) and the Samsung C49HG90 is a 49" PC monitor (14" bigger). 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.

Smaller Display Resolution

The Benq EX3501R has a display resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels pixels, whereas the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, the HP Z38C and the LG 38UC99W have a display resolution of 3840 x 1600 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.

43% Slower Response Time

The Benq EX3501R is a 4ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, the HP Z38C and the LG 38UC99W (5ms) and 3ms slower than the Samsung C49HG90 (1ms). 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.

Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The Benq EX3501R has a medium (2500:1) typical contrast ratio, but the Samsung C49HG90 has a 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 Benq EX3501R does not have a built-in speaker (As do the the HP Z38C and the Samsung C49HG90), however the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the LG 38UC99W 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 Benq EX3501R has received a Kagoo Score of 79, whereas the Samsung C49HG90 scored 80.

Fewer Sellers

Only 2 sellers sells the Benq EX3501R, but 3 sellers sell the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, 5 retailers sell the HP Z38C and 7 shops sell the Samsung C49HG90. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this PC monitor, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over One Year Older

The Benq EX3501R is older than the HP Z38C by one month and older than the Samsung C49HG90 by 22 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 18%

The running costs of the Benq EX3501R are $66 which is $10 more than the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and $8 more than the LG 38UC99W over five years. Show assumptions.

Fewer Awards

Whilst the Benq EX3501R has received 12 awards, the LG 38UC99W has received 13 awards.

Marginally Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Benq EX3501R is 87%, whereas the average expert rating of the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is 91% (based on 16 reviews) and the LG 38UC99W is 88% (based on 48 reviews).

A Lot Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Benq EX3501R is 85%, whereas the average user rating of the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is 94% (based on 13 reviews), the HP Z38C is 100% (based on 1 review) and the LG 38UC99W is 93% (based on 86 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 0.6% of 158 customers recommend the Benq EX3501R, but 13.5% of 192 customers recommend the LG 38UC99W and 28.4% of 183 customers recommend the Samsung C49HG90.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 38UC99W

3840 X 1600 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The LG 38UC99W has a display resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels pixels (as are the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the HP Z38C), but the Benq EX3501R only has a display resolution of 3440 x 1440 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.

Headphone Out

The LG 38UC99W has a headphone out, and so does the Samsung C49HG90, however the Benq EX3501R, the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the HP Z38C do not. 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.

Built-in Speaker

The LG 38UC99W has a built-in speaker, and so does the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, but the Benq EX3501R, the HP Z38C and the Samsung C49HG90 do not. 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.

Picture-in-Picture Support

The LG 38UC99W features Picture-in-Picture support, and so do the Benq EX3501R, the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the Samsung C49HG90, however the HP Z38C does not. More ...

'Picture-In-Picture' indicates whether the monitor is able to show one smaller screen inside the main screen - usually down in a corner.

This is helpful for things like YouTube videos or Skype calls - being able to surf while you chat to people or watch cat videos!

Has a Better Picture Quality

On average reviewers thought the LG 38UC99W has a better picture quality. Over 40 people thought that it has a good screen and several people thought that it also had a brilliant picture quality, refresh rate and had a great video quality.

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 38UC99W

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 38UC99W is a 38" PC monitor. That's 3" bigger than the Benq EX3501R (35"), 0.5" bigger than the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the HP Z38C (37.5") and 11" smaller than the Samsung C49HG90 (49"). 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.

4ms Slower Response Time

The LG 38UC99W has a response time of 5ms (as do the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the HP Z38C), whereas the Benq EX3501R is a 4ms response time PC monitor (1ms faster) and the Samsung C49HG90 is a 1ms response time PC monitor (4ms 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.

Half the Typical Contrast Ratio

The LG 38UC99W has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the HP Z38C), however the Benq EX3501R has a medium typical contrast ratio and the Samsung C49HG90 has a 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 38UC99W has received a Kagoo Score of 77, but the Benq EX3501R scored 79, the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW scored 79 and the Samsung C49HG90 scored 80.

More Expensive by $462

The LG 38UC99W is $462 more expensive than the Benq EX3501R, $213 more expensive than the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, $412 more expensive than the HP Z38C and $303 more expensive than the Samsung C49HG90.

Not As Many Stockists

The LG 38UC99W is only stocked by 1 store, however the Benq EX3501R is stocked by 2 sellers, the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is stocked by 3 sellers, the HP Z38C is stocked by 5 sellers and the Samsung C49HG90 is stocked by 7 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor.
Older by Over Two Years

The LG 38UC99W is one year older than the Benq EX3501R, 11 months older than the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW, 13 months older than the HP Z38C and three years older than the Samsung C49HG90.

$2 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Expert Review Rating is a Bit Worse

The LG 38UC99W has an average expert score of 88%, but the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW has an average expert rating of 91% (based on 16 reviews).

User Review Rating is Worse

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW

11.5" Smaller Display Diagonal

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is a 37.5" PC monitor, and so does the HP Z38C. That's 2.5" bigger than the Benq EX3501R (35"), 0.5" smaller than the LG 38UC99W (38") and 11.5" smaller than the Samsung C49HG90 (49"). 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.

A Lot Slower Response Time

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW has a response time of 5ms (as do the HP Z38C and the LG 38UC99W), however the Benq EX3501R is a 4ms response time PC monitor (1ms faster) and the Samsung C49HG90 is a 1ms response time PC monitor (4ms 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 UltraSharp U3818DW has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the HP Z38C and the LG 38UC99W), but the Benq EX3501R has a medium typical contrast ratio and the Samsung C49HG90 has a 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW has received a Kagoo Score of 79, whereas the Samsung C49HG90 scored 80.

More Expensive by $249

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is $249 more expensive than the Benq EX3501R, $199 more expensive than the HP Z38C and $90 more expensive than the Samsung C49HG90.

Fewer Sellers

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is only stocked by 3 sellers, but the HP Z38C is stocked by 5 stores and the Samsung C49HG90 is stocked by 7 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW is one month older than the Benq EX3501R, two months older than the HP Z38C and 23 months older than the Samsung C49HG90.

10 Less Awards

The DELL UltraSharp U3818DW has only received 3 awards, but the Benq EX3501R has received 12 awards, the LG 38UC99W has received 13 awards and the Samsung C49HG90 has received 7 awards.

4ms Slower Response Time

The HP Z38C has a response time of 5ms (as do the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the LG 38UC99W), but the Benq EX3501R is a 4ms response time PC monitor (1ms faster) and the Samsung C49HG90 is a 1ms response time PC monitor (4ms 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.

Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The HP Z38C has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the LG 38UC99W), whereas the Benq EX3501R has a medium typical contrast ratio and the Samsung C49HG90 has a 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.

One Less HDMI Port

The number of HDMI ports the monitor has.

More HDMI ports means that you can plug in more devices (computer, games console, DVD player, etc) to the screen at once.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The HP Z38C does not have a built-in speaker (As do the the Benq EX3501R and the Samsung C49HG90), but the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW and the LG 38UC99W 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 HP Z38C has received a Kagoo Score of 76, however the Benq EX3501R scored 79, the DELL UltraSharp U3818DW scored 79, the LG 38UC99W scored 77 and the Samsung C49HG90 scored 80.

More Expensive by $50

The HP Z38C is $50 more expensive than the Benq EX3501R.

Less Retailers

$19 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years
