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.

4.96cm bigger display diagonal Edit
The Benq RL2455 has a display diagonal of 60.96cm, however the Eizo FlexScan EV2216 is only a 56cm display diagonal PC monitor (4.96cm smaller).

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.

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