Reasons For

Asus PG278Q LG 34UM95C-P
3 Reasons For
3D
The Asus PG278Q is a 3D PC monitor, whereas the LG 34UM95C-P is not 3D.

Monitors that are 3D compatible are able to display 3D images. Some monitors will require you to wear special glasses to appreciate the 3D affect.

A 3D monitor allows you to view 3D content on the monitor such as 3D films, 3D games or 3D applications.

Read more Read less | Edit
Faster Response Time
The Asus PG278Q is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 4ms faster than the LG 34UM95C-P (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
Better Brand
Asus PC monitors have an average rating of 88.2%, whereas LG has an average rating of 84.9%.
5 Reasons For
7" Bigger Display Diagonal
The LG 34UM95C-P is a 34" PC monitor. That's 7" bigger than the Asus PG278Q (27").

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 LG 34UM95C-P has a vertical viewing angle of 178°, whereas the Asus PG278Q 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
Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The LG 34UM95C-P is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Asus PG278Q (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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The LG 34UM95C-P has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the Asus PG278Q does not.

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper to Run by $29 Over Five Years
Over five years the LG 34UM95C-P only costs $57 to run however the Asus PG278Q costs $86 to run (50% more).

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.
