Reasons For

Acer H277HU HP ENVY 34
4 Reasons For
Faster Response Time
The Acer H277HU is a 4ms response time PC monitor. That's 10ms faster than the HP ENVY 34 (14ms).

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.
