5 Reasons For for Choosing the Asus VS207TP

Faster Response Time

The Asus VS207TP has a response time of 5 (as do the DELL P2217H, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), but the Acer V6 V196L is a 6ms response time PC monitor (1ms slower). 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.

HDCP

The Asus VS207TP has an HDCP, and so do the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH, however the Acer V6 V196L and the DELL P2217H do not. 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.

Two Speakers

The Asus VS207TP has two speakers, and so does the Viewsonic VG2239SMH, however the Acer V6 V196L only has one speaker. More ...

We do not know the number of speakers on the DELL P2217H or the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK. It is possible that they do 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Asus VS207TP has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the Acer V6 V196L scored 84, the DELL P2217H scored 87, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK scored 84 and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH scored 88.

Better Brand

Asus PC monitors have an average rating of 95%, whereas Acer only has an average rating of 93.6%, DELL only has an average rating of 93.7%, NEC only has an average rating of 85.6% and Viewsonic only has an average rating of 92.1%.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Asus VS207TP

19% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Asus VS207TP is a 19.5 PC monitor. That's 1" bigger than the Acer V6 V196L (18.5"), 2.5" smaller than the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH (22") and 4.5" smaller than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (24"). 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.

Only 1600 X 900 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Asus VS207TP has a display resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels pixels, however the DELL P2217H, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) 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.

11% Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The Asus VS207TP has a vertical viewing angle of 160 (as do the Acer V6 V196L and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), however the DELL P2217H is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (18° wider) and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is a 170° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (10° wider). 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.

Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Asus VS207TP is a 170 horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Acer V6 V196L and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH. That's 8° narrower than the DELL P2217H (178°) and 6° narrower than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (176°). 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.

Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The Asus VS207TP has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the DELL P2217H, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), whereas the Acer V6 V196L has 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 USB Hub

The Asus VS207TP does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Acer V6 V196L and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK), however the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH do. 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Asus VS207TP does not have a built-in speaker (As does the the DELL P2217H), but the Acer V6 V196L, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH 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.

More Expensive by $5

The Asus VS207TP is $5 more expensive than the DELL P2217H.

Less Retailers

The Asus VS207TP is only stocked by 16 stores, whereas the DELL P2217H is stocked by 18 stores. More ...

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

The Asus VS207TP is three years older than the Acer V6 V196L, four years older than the DELL P2217H, two years older than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and 17 months older than the Viewsonic VG2239SMH.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic VG2239SMH

Larger Display Resolution

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the DELL P2217H and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK, which is twice as large display resolution as the Acer V6 V196L (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.

1ms Faster Response Time

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH is a 5 response time PC monitor, and so do the Asus VS207TP, the DELL P2217H and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK. That's 1ms faster than the Acer V6 V196L (6ms). 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.

HDMI

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH has an HDMI (as does the DELL P2217H), whereas the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK 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 Viewsonic VG2239SMH has a built-in USB hub, and so does the DELL P2217H, however the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK 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.

HDCP

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH has an HDCP (as do the Asus VS207TP and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK), but the Acer V6 V196L and the DELL P2217H do 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 Viewsonic VG2239SMH has a built-in speaker (as does the Acer V6 V196L), but the Asus VS207TP, the DELL P2217H and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK do 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 Viewsonic VG2239SMH is two (as does the Asus VS207TP), but the Acer V6 V196L only has one speaker. More ...

We do not know the number of speakers on the DELL P2217H or the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK. It is possible that they do 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.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic VG2239SMH

2" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH has a display diagonal of 22 (as does the DELL P2217H), but the Acer V6 V196L is a 18.5" PC monitor (3.5" smaller), the Asus VS207TP is a 19.5" PC monitor (2.5" smaller) and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is a 24" PC monitor (2" 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.

Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH is a 160 vertical viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP. That's 18° narrower than the DELL P2217H (178°) and 10° narrower than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (170°). 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° Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH has a horizontal viewing angle of 170 (as do the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP), but the DELL P2217H is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (8° wider) and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is a 176° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (6° wider). 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.

3 Times Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic VG2239SMH has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the Asus VS207TP, the DELL P2217H and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK, which is 3 times lower typical contrast ratio of the Acer V6 V196L (ultra high). 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 Viewsonic VG2239SMH has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Asus VS207TP scored 90.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 10 retailers sells the Viewsonic VG2239SMH, however 16 stores sell the Asus VS207TP and 18 shops sell the DELL P2217H. More ...

11 Reasons For for Choosing the DELL P2217H

1920 X 1080 (1080p) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The DELL P2217H has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels (as are the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), whereas the Acer V6 V196L only has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels and the Asus VS207TP only has a display resolution of 1600 x 900 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.

17% Faster Response Time

The DELL P2217H has a response time of 5 (as do the Asus VS207TP, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), however the Acer V6 V196L is a 6ms response time PC monitor (1ms slower). 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.

18° Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

The DELL P2217H has a vertical viewing angle of 178, whereas the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH are all only 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitors (18° narrower) and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is only a 170° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (8° 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.

5% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle

The DELL P2217H is a 178 horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH (170°) and 2° wider than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (176°). 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 DELL P2217H has an HDMI, and so does the Viewsonic VG2239SMH, however the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK do not. 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 DELL P2217H has a built-in USB hub (as does the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), but the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK do not have this feature. 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.

Cheaper by $5

The DELL P2217H is $22.99 cheaper than the Acer V6 V196L, $4.99 cheaper than the Asus VS207TP and $90.99 cheaper than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor.

Newer by Eight Months

The DELL P2217H is eight months newer than the Acer V6 V196L, four years newer than the Asus VS207TP, 17 months newer than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and two years newer than the Viewsonic VG2239SMH

A Bit Better User Reviews

Based on 22 user reviews, the DELL P2217H has an average review score of 98%, whereas the Acer V6 V196L has an average rating of 95% (based on 22 reviews), the Asus VS207TP has an average rating of 92% (based on 70 reviews), the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK has an average rating of 93% (based on 11 reviews) and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH has an average rating of 90% (based on 8 reviews).

A Bit Better Overall Reviews

Based on 22 reviews, the DELL P2217H has an average review score of 93%, whereas the Asus VS207TP has an average rating of 92% (based on 70 reviews) and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH has an average rating of 90% (based on 8 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the DELL P2217H

9% Smaller Display Diagonal

The DELL P2217H is a 22 PC monitor, and so does the Viewsonic VG2239SMH. That's 3.5" bigger than the Acer V6 V196L (18.5"), 2.5" bigger than the Asus VS207TP (19.5") and 2" smaller than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (24"). 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.

Only Low (1000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The DELL P2217H has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the Asus VS207TP, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), but the Acer V6 V196L has 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 P2217H does not have a built-in speaker (As does the the Asus VS207TP), however the Acer V6 V196L, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH 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 P2217H has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the Asus VS207TP scored 90 and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH scored 88.

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 40.7% of 27 customers recommend the DELL P2217H, but 50% of 8 customers recommend the Viewsonic VG2239SMH.

Worse Brand

DELL PC monitors have an average rating of only 93.7%, but Asus has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the P2217H in the US is $75.00 and in total we found 18 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK

Bigger Display Diagonal

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK has a display diagonal of 24, but the Acer V6 V196L is only a 18.5" PC monitor (5.5" smaller), the Asus VS207TP is only a 19.5" PC monitor (4.5" smaller) and the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH are both only 22" PC monitors (2" 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 AS242WBK has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH, which is twice as large display resolution as the Acer V6 V196L (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.

1ms Faster Response Time

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is a 5 response time PC monitor, and so do the Asus VS207TP, the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH. That's 1ms faster than the Acer V6 V196L (6ms). 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.

HDCP

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK has an HDCP (as do the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), but the Acer V6 V196L and the DELL P2217H do 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.

$12 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK only costs $57 to run over five years whereas the Asus VS207TP costs $59 to run (4% more) and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH costs $68 to run (21% more). More ...

Overall Reviews Are a Bit Better

The average overall review score of the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is 93% based on 11 reviews, but the average rating of the Asus VS207TP is 92% (based on 70 reviews) and the average rating of the Viewsonic VG2239SMH is 90% (based on 8 reviews).

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK

Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is a 170 vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 10° wider than the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH (160°) and 8° narrower than the DELL P2217H (178°). 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.

2° Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK has a horizontal viewing angle of 176, but the Acer V6 V196L, the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH are all 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitors (6° narrower) and the DELL P2217H is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (2° wider). More ...

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

3 Times Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the Asus VS207TP, the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH, which is 3 times lower typical contrast ratio of the Acer V6 V196L (ultra high). 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 USB Hub

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Acer V6 V196L and the Asus VS207TP), but the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH have this feature. More ...

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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The NEC MultiSync AS242WBK has received a Kagoo Score of 84, but the Asus VS207TP scored 90, the DELL P2217H scored 87 and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH scored 88.

Lower User Review Score

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Acer V6 V196L

23% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Acer V6 V196L is a 18.5 PC monitor. That's 1" smaller than the Asus VS207TP (19.5"), 3.5" smaller than the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH (22") and 5.5" smaller than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (24"). 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.

Half As Large Display Resolution

The Acer V6 V196L has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels pixels, however the Asus VS207TP has a display resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels and the DELL P2217H, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) 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.

Slower Response Time

The Acer V6 V196L has a response time of 6, but the Asus VS207TP, the DELL P2217H, the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH are all 5ms response time PC monitors (1ms 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.

11% Narrower Vertical Viewing Angle

The Acer V6 V196L has a vertical viewing angle of 160 (as do the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH), however the DELL P2217H is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (18° wider) and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK is a 170° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (10° wider). 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.

5% Narrower Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Acer V6 V196L is a 170 horizontal viewing angle PC monitor, and so do the Asus VS207TP and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH. That's 8° narrower than the DELL P2217H (178°) and 6° narrower than the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK (176°). 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.

The Acer V6 V196L does not have a built-in USB hub (As do the the Asus VS207TP and the NEC MultiSync AS242WBK), however the DELL P2217H and the Viewsonic VG2239SMH do. 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.

Only One Speaker
