Hugely Faster Response Time
The DELL P2815Q has a response time of 5ms, but the DELL P2715Q is a 9ms response time PC monitor (4ms slower).

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.
