Reasons For

Acer H257HU DELL U2515H
3 Reasons For
4ms Faster Response Time
The Acer H257HU is a 4ms response time PC monitor. That's 4ms faster than the DELL U2515H (8ms).

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.
