Reasons For

DELL S2240L HP ENVY 34
4 Reasons For
7ms Faster Response Time
The DELL S2240L has a response time of 7ms, whereas the HP ENVY 34 is a 14ms response time PC monitor (7ms 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.
