Reasons For

Asus MX259 DELL P2416D
5 Reasons For
5% Bigger Display Diagonal
The Asus MX259 is a 25" PC monitor. That's 1.25" bigger than the DELL P2416D (23.75").

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
1ms Faster Response Time
The Asus MX259 has a response time of 5ms, whereas the DELL P2416D is a 6ms response time PC monitor (1ms 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
One More HDMI Port
The number of HDMI ports on the Asus MX259 is two, but the DELL P2416D 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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Asus MX259 has a built-in speaker(s), but the DELL P2416D does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.
