7 Reasons For

Read more Read less | Edit
3ms Faster Response Time
The NEC MultiSync EA244WMI has a response time of 5ms, but the DELL U2414H is an 8ms response time PC monitor (3ms 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 NEC MultiSync EA244WMI has a built-in speaker(s), however the DELL U2414H does not.
