Reasons For

Benq GW2470HM Viewsonic VX2757-MHD
5 Reasons For
Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Benq GW2470HM has a vertical viewing angle of 178°, but the Viewsonic VX2757-MHD 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 Benq GW2470HM is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Viewsonic VX2757-MHD (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
One More HDMI Port
The number of HDMI ports on the Benq GW2470HM is two, but the Viewsonic VX2757-MHD 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
$30 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Benq GW2470HM is $30 cheaper to run than the Viewsonic VX2757-MHD.
Read more Read less
Better Brand
Benq PC monitors have an average rating of 90.3%, however Viewsonic has an average rating of 87.4%.
4 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The Viewsonic VX2757-MHD has a display diagonal of 27", but the Benq GW2470HM is only a 23.8" PC monitor (3.2" 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
Faster Response Time
The Viewsonic VX2757-MHD is a 1.5ms response time PC monitor. That's 2.5ms faster than the Benq GW2470HM (4ms).

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.
