Reasons For

AOC U2868 Asus MX27
3 Reasons For
1" Bigger Display Diagonal
The AOC U2868 has a display diagonal of 28", however the Asus MX27 is only a 27" PC monitor (1" 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
4x Faster Response Time
The AOC U2868 is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 4ms faster than the Asus MX27 (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
$6 Cheaper
The AOC U2868 costs $6 less than the Asus MX27.
11 Reasons For
11% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Asus MX27 is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 18° wider than the AOC U2868 (160°).

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
Marginally Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Asus MX27 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the AOC U2868 is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (8° 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Two HDMI Ports
The Asus MX27 has two HDMI ports, however the AOC U2868 only has one HDMI port.

This indicates 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
