Reasons For

Asus MX259 DELL U2414H
6 Reasons For
1.2" Bigger Display Diagonal
The Asus MX259 has a display diagonal of 25", whereas the DELL U2414H is only a 23.8" PC monitor (1.2" 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
60% Faster Response Time
The Asus MX259 is a 5ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms 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
Built-In Speaker(s)
