Reasons For

Benq VW2235 Samsung SMT-2232
6 Reasons For
11% Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Benq VW2235 is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 18° wider than the Samsung SMT-2232 (160°).

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
8° Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Benq VW2235 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, however the Samsung SMT-2232 is only a 170° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor (8° narrower).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
HDCP
The Benq VW2235 has an HDCP, however the Samsung SMT-2232 does not have an HDCP.

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Read more Read less | Edit
£176 Cheaper
The Benq VW2235 costs £175.76 less than the Samsung SMT-2232.
18% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Benq VW2235 only costs £73 to run over five years but the Samsung SMT-2232 costs £90 to run (22% more).
Read more Read less
Better Brand
Benq PC monitors have an average rating of 90.1%, whereas Samsung has an average rating of 83.5%.
4 Reasons For
3D
The Samsung SMT-2232 is 3D, but the Benq VW2235 is not 3D.

Monitors that are 3D compatible are able to display 3D images. Some monitors will require you to wear special glasses to appreciate the 3D affect.

A 3D monitor allows you to view 3D content on the monitor such as 3D films, 3D games or 3D applications.

Read more Read less | Edit
20% Faster Response Time
The Samsung SMT-2232 has a response time of 5ms, however the Benq VW2235 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
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Samsung SMT-2232 has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the Benq VW2235 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.

More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this PC monitor remaining in stock.

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.
