Reasons For

AOC Q2778 DELL U2414H
3 Reasons For
3.2" Bigger Display Diagonal
The AOC Q2778 has a display diagonal of 27", whereas the DELL U2414H is only a 23.8" PC monitor (3.2" smaller).

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
7x Faster Response Time
The AOC Q2778 is a 1ms response time PC monitor. That's 7ms faster than the DELL U2414H (8ms).

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
User Reviews Are Better
The average user review score of the AOC Q2778 is 96%, whereas the average rating of the DELL U2414H is 88% (based on 538 reviews).
7 Reasons For
11% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The DELL U2414H is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 18° wider than the AOC Q2778 (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
8° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The DELL U2414H has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the AOC Q2778 is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (8° 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
Two HDMI Ports
The DELL U2414H has two HDMI ports, however the AOC Q2778 only has one HDMI port.

This indicates the number of HDMI ports the monitor has.

More HDMI ports means that you can plug in more devices (computer, games console, DVD player, etc) to the screen at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
£67 Cheaper
The DELL U2414H costs £67.05 less than the AOC Q2778.
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.
69% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The DELL U2414H only costs £24 to run over five years but the AOC Q2778 costs £77 to run (226% more).

DELL PC monitors have an average rating of 89.5%, whereas AOC has an average rating of 87.6%.
