Reasons For

Acer G246HLF Viewsonic VX2457MHD
6 Reasons For
Faster Response Time
The Acer G246HLF is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the Viewsonic VX2457MHD (2ms).

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
Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Acer G246HLF is a 170° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 10° wider than the Viewsonic VX2457MHD (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
6° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Acer G246HLF has a horizontal viewing angle of 176°, however the Viewsonic VX2457MHD is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (6° 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
£17 Cheaper
The Acer G246HLF costs £17.05 less than the Viewsonic VX2457MHD.
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
48% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Acer G246HLF only costs £32 to run over five years but the Viewsonic VX2457MHD costs £62 to run (91% more).
Read more Read less
2 Reasons For
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Viewsonic VX2457MHD has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the Acer G246HLF 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.
