4 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The Samsung S27E391H is a 27" PC monitor. That's 4" bigger than the Asus VX239H (23").

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
1ms Faster Response Time
The Samsung S27E391H has a response time of 4ms, whereas the Asus VX239H is a 5ms 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.
