Reasons For

Acer G246H Hanns.G HS221
5 Reasons For
11% Bigger Display Diagonal
The Acer G246H is a 24" PC monitor. That's 2.5" bigger than the Hanns.G HS221 (21.5").

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
Two Times Faster Response Time
The Acer G246H has a response time of 2ms, but the Hanns.G HS221 is a 5ms response time PC monitor (3ms 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.
