Reasons For

Acer GF246 Samsung C24F396FHU
7 Reasons For
3D
The Acer GF246 is a 3D PC monitor, whereas the Samsung C24F396FHU is not 3D.

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
3x Faster Response Time
The Acer GF246 is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms faster than the Samsung C24F396FHU (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.
