Reasons For

Acer XF270HUA iiyama GB2488HSU
5 Reasons For
3" Bigger Display Diagonal
The Acer XF270HUA is a 27" PC monitor. That's 3" bigger than the iiyama GB2488HSU (24").

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
18° Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Acer XF270HUA has a vertical viewing angle of 178°, whereas the iiyama GB2488HSU is only a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (18° narrower).

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
5% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Acer XF270HUA is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the iiyama GB2488HSU (170°).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper by $77
The Acer XF270HUA is $76.67 cheaper than the iiyama GB2488HSU.
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of shops increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock.
3 Reasons For
3ms Faster Response Time
The iiyama GB2488HSU has a response time of 1ms, but the Acer XF270HUA is a 4ms 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
2% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the iiyama GB2488HSU only costs $41 to run but the Acer XF270HUA costs $42 to run (2% more).
