Reasons For

DELL S2415H HP 27xw
4 Reasons For
8ms Faster Response Time
The DELL S2415H has a response time of 6ms, whereas the HP 27xw is a 14ms response time PC monitor (8ms 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In Speaker(s)
The DELL S2415H has a built-in speaker(s), but the HP 27xw 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
TV Tuner Integrated
The DELL S2415H has a TV tuner integrated, whereas the HP 27xw does not.

An integrated TV tuner on a PC monitor means that you can use the monitor to watch TV.

A built in TV tuner means that you can use the screen as both a PC monitor and a TV which saves money on buying 2 devices and also saves space.

Read more Read less | Edit
Better Brand
DELL PC monitors have an average rating of 89.5%, however HP has an average rating of 81.3%.
3 Reasons For
3.2" Bigger Display Diagonal
The HP 27xw is a 27" PC monitor. That's 3.2" bigger than the DELL S2415H (23.8").

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
One More HDMI Port
The HP 27xw is a two HDMI port PC monitor, whereas the DELL S2415H 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
Cheaper to Run by $8 Over Five Years
Over five years the HP 27xw only costs $31 to run however the DELL S2415H costs $39 to run (26% more).
