Reasons For

Asus PB258Q DELL U2515H
4 Reasons For
3ms Faster Response Time
The Asus PB258Q has a response time of 5ms, but the DELL U2515H is an 8ms response time PC monitor (3ms 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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Asus PB258Q has a built-in speaker(s), however the DELL U2515H does not.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor.
19% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Asus PB258Q only costs £74 to run but the DELL U2515H costs £92 to run (24% more).
Read more Read less
3 Reasons For
Built-In USB Hub
The DELL U2515H has a built-in USB hub, however the Asus PB258Q does not have a built-in USB hub.

This indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Read more Read less | Edit
One More HDMI Port
The number of HDMI ports on the DELL U2515H is two, but the Asus PB258Q 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.
