Reasons For

Acer G226HQL Acer S220
5 Reasons For
3ms Faster Response Time
The Acer G226HQL is a 2ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms faster than the Acer S220 (5ms).

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
18° Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Acer G226HQL is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 18° wider than the Acer S220 (160°).

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 G226HQL has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, whereas the Acer S220 is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (8° 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.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

PC monitor running costs calculated based on an average of 8 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the PC monitor and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving PC monitors.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these PC monitors for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
