Reasons For

Benq VW2430H Philips 200S4LYMB
5 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The Benq VW2430H is a 24" PC monitor. That's 4.5" bigger than the Philips 200S4LYMB (19.5").

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
1ms Faster Response Time
The Benq VW2430H has a response time of 4ms, whereas the Philips 200S4LYMB 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The Benq VW2430H has a vertical viewing angle of 178°, but the Philips 200S4LYMB 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
Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Benq VW2430H is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Philips 200S4LYMB (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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Better Brand
Benq PC monitors have an average rating of 89.1%, however Philips has an average rating of 77.4%.
3 Reasons For
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Philips 200S4LYMB has a built-in speaker(s), whereas the Benq VW2430H does not have a built-in speaker(s).

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
