Reasons For

HP Z32x LG 55SL5B
3 Reasons For
Faster Response Time
The HP Z32x is an 8ms response time PC monitor. That's 4ms faster than the LG 55SL5B (12ms).

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 Z32x is a two HDMI port PC monitor, whereas the LG 55SL5B 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 $94 Over Five Years
The HP Z32x is $94 cheaper to run than the LG 55SL5B over five years.
Read more Read less
3 Reasons For
A Lot Bigger Display Diagonal
The LG 55SL5B has a display diagonal of 55", however the HP Z32x is only a 31.5" PC monitor (23.5" smaller).

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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The LG 55SL5B has a built-in speaker(s), however the HP Z32x does not have a built-in speaker(s).

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.
