Reasons For

Acer G226HQL AOC E2050
5 Reasons For
1.5" Bigger Display Diagonal
The Acer G226HQL has a display diagonal of 21.5", however the AOC E2050 is only a 20" PC monitor (1.5" smaller).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Two Times Faster Response Time
The Acer G226HQL is a 2ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms faster than the AOC E2050 (5ms).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Acer G226HQL is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 128° wider than the AOC E2050 (50°).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
88° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Acer G226HQL has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the AOC E2050 is only a 90° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (88° narrower).

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.
