Reasons For

5 Reasons For
1" bigger display diagonal Edit
The Asus PB328 has a display diagonal of 32" (as does the Philips BDM3275), whereas the LG 31MU97 is only a 31" PC monitor (1" smaller). Read more

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.

The Asus PB328 is a 4ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the LG 31MU97 (12ms) and 8ms faster than the Philips BDM3275 (12ms). 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.
