Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Four times faster response time Edit
The Benq RL2455 is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 4ms faster than the Viewsonic VG2439M (5ms). Read more

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.

1W higher RMS rated audio power Edit
The Benq RL2455 has an RMS rated audio power of 4W, whereas the Viewsonic VG2439M is only a 3W RMS rated audio power PC monitor (1W lower). Read more

RMS rated power is a true measure of the power of the audio system on a monitor. It also sometimes referred to as the Continuous Power. RMS stands for Root Mean Square and is measured in Watts (voltage x current). The RMS rated power is the highest amount of power that an amplifier can deliver continuously without failing.

A higher RMS rated power will provide audio that is louder and cleaner.
