Reasons For

Acer 276HL DELL U3014
4 Reasons For
20% Faster Response Time
The Acer 276HL is a 5ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the DELL U3014 (6ms).

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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Acer 276HL has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the DELL U3014 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper to Run by £111 Over Five Years

3 Reasons For
2.8" Bigger Display Diagonal
