Reasons For

Acer B286 HP Pavilion 27
3 Reasons For
4% Bigger Display Diagonal
The Acer B286 is a 28" PC monitor. That's 1" bigger than the HP Pavilion 27 (27").

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Hugely Faster Response Time
The Acer B286 has a response time of 1ms, but the HP Pavilion 27 is a 7ms response time PC monitor (6ms slower).

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
