Reasons For

Acer Predator GN276HL NEC E241N
7 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The Acer Predator GN276HL is a 27" PC monitor. That's 3.2" bigger than the NEC E241N (23.8").

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
3D
The Acer Predator GN276HL is 3D, however the NEC E241N is not.

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
Five Times Faster Response Time
The Acer Predator GN276HL has a response time of 1ms, whereas the NEC E241N is a 6ms response time PC monitor (5ms 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.

5 Reasons For
5% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle

Read more Read less | Edit

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

The NEC E241N has a built-in speaker(s), however the Acer Predator GN276HL does not have a built-in speaker(s).
