Reasons For

DELL U3014 DELL UP3216Q
6 Reasons For
Faster Response Time
The DELL U3014 is a 6ms response time PC monitor. That's 2ms faster than the DELL UP3216Q (8ms).

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.
