Reasons For

Benq GW2470HM DELL U2415
6 Reasons For
50% Faster Response Time
The Benq GW2470HM is a 4ms response time PC monitor. That's 2ms faster than the DELL U2415 (6ms).

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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Benq GW2470HM has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the DELL U2415 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

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.
