Reasons For

Benq GL2250 Benq GW2265M
3 Reasons For
20% Faster Response Time
The Benq GL2250 is a 5ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the Benq GW2265M (6ms).

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
Cheaper to Run by £5 Over Five Years
The Benq GL2250 is £5 cheaper to run than the Benq GW2265M over five years.
Read more Read less
User Reviews Are Significantly Better
Based on 385 reviews, the average user review score of the Benq GL2250 is 92%, whereas the average rating of the Benq GW2265M is 70% (based on 4 reviews).
2 Reasons For
Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Benq GW2265M has a vertical viewing angle of 178°, but the Benq GL2250 is only a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (18° narrower).

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
5% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Benq GW2265M is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Benq GL2250 (170°).

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.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

PC monitor running costs calculated based on an average of 8 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the PC monitor and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving PC monitors.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these PC monitors for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
