Reasons For

Acer BE240Y Acer Predator GN276HL
8 Reasons For
5% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Acer BE240Y is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Acer Predator GN276HL (170°).

The vertical viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the screen can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Read more Read less | Edit
Moderately Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Acer BE240Y has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the Acer Predator GN276HL is only a 176° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (2° narrower).

The horizontal viewing angle dictates the maximum angle at which the monitor can be properly viewed.

A larger viewing angle means that the monitor can be watched from many different parts of a room successfully. Conversely, a very small viewing angle means you would effectively have to sit directly in front of the monitor to be able to view the screen successfully.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In USB Hub
The Acer BE240Y has a built-in USB hub, whereas the Acer Predator GN276HL does not have a built-in USB hub.

This indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Acer BE240Y has a built-in speaker(s), however the Acer Predator GN276HL 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

Read more Read less
Better Energy Efficiency Rating

4 Reasons For
3.2" Bigger Display Diagonal
The Acer Predator GN276HL is a 27" PC monitor. That's 3.2" bigger than the Acer BE240Y (23.8").

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
3D
The Acer Predator GN276HL is 3D, but the Acer BE240Y is not.

Monitors that are 3D compatible are able to display 3D images. Some monitors will require you to wear special glasses to appreciate the 3D affect.

A 3D monitor allows you to view 3D content on the monitor such as 3D films, 3D games or 3D applications.

Read more Read less | Edit
Faster Response Time
The Acer Predator GN276HL has a response time of 1ms, however the Acer BE240Y is a 6ms response time PC monitor (5ms 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.
