Reasons For

Eizo FlexScan S2133 NEC MultiSync P242W
5 Reasons For
1ms Faster Response Time
The Eizo FlexScan S2133 has a response time of 7ms, whereas the NEC MultiSync P242W is an 8ms response time PC monitor (1ms 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 USB Hub
The Eizo FlexScan S2133 has a built-in USB hub, however the NEC MultiSync P242W does not have a built-in USB hub.

This indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.
