7 Reasons For for Choosing the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK

Significantly Faster Response Time

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a response time of 5ms (as does the Asus MX299Q), whereas the HP LP2065 is an 8ms response time PC monitor (3ms slower), the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB is a 14ms response time PC monitor (9ms slower) and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED is a 7ms response time PC monitor (2ms 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.

HDMI

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has an HDMI, and so do the Asus MX299Q and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED, whereas the HP LP2065 and the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB 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 NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a built-in USB hub, however the Asus MX299Q, the HP LP2065, the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED 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.

Headphone Out

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a headphone out, however the Asus MX299Q, the HP LP2065, the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED 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.

HDCP

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has an HDCP, and so do the Asus MX299Q, the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED, but the HP LP2065 does 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.

Built-in Speaker

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a built-in speaker, and so do the Asus MX299Q, the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED, but the HP LP2065 does 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.

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.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK

7% Smaller Display Diagonal

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is a 27" PC monitor. That's 2" smaller than the Asus MX299Q and the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB (29"), 6.9" bigger than the HP LP2065 (20.1") and 5.5" bigger than the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED (21.5"). 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 1920 X 1080 (1080p) Pixels Pixels Resolution

The NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels (as is the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED), but the Asus MX299Q and the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB have a display resolution of 2560 x 1080 (UW-UXGA) 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.

Lower Contrast Ratio

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 on the NEC MultiSync EA273WMIBK is one (as do the Asus MX299Q and the Viewsonic LED LCD VX2270SMHLED), but the Philips Brilliance 298X4QJAB only has two HDMI ports. More ...

We do not know the number of HDMI ports on the HP LP2065. It is possible that it does not have any HDMI ports.

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.
