Reasons For

Acer G247HYL Asus VS24 DELL U2412M HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only
2 Reasons For
4ms Faster Response Time
The Acer G247HYL has a response time of 4ms, whereas the Asus VS24 is a 5ms response time PC monitor (1ms slower), the DELL U2412M is an 8ms response time PC monitor (4ms slower) and the HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only is a 7ms response time PC monitor (3ms slower).

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.

Key Features

Display Diagonal

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.

Response Time

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.

Running Costs Over 5 Years

PC monitor running costs calculated based on an average of 8 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the PC monitor and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving PC monitors.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these PC monitors for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
