Reasons For

HP Pavilion 27c LG 29UC88-B
3 Reasons For
75% Faster Response Time
The HP Pavilion 27c is an 8ms response time PC monitor. That's 6ms faster than the LG 29UC88-B (14ms).

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
Two HDMI Ports
The HP Pavilion 27c is a two HDMI port PC monitor, whereas the LG 29UC88-B 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.
