Reasons For

Acer G277HU Acer Predator XB271HU
2 Reasons For
Three Times Faster Response Time
The Acer G277HU is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms faster than the Acer Predator XB271HU (4ms).

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.
