Reasons For

5x faster response time Edit
The DELL S2716DG has a response time of 1ms, however the DELL U2715H is a 6ms response time PC monitor (5ms slower). 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.
