Reasons For

Asus MX27 Samsung S22B420BW
7 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The Asus MX27 is a 27" PC monitor. That's 5" bigger than the Samsung S22B420BW (22").

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.
