Reasons For

HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only HP ProDisplay P240va
4 Reasons For
0.2" Bigger Display Diagonal
The HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only has a display diagonal of 24", however the HP ProDisplay P240va is only a 23.8" PC monitor (0.2" smaller).

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
Faster Response Time
The HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only is a 7ms response time PC monitor. That's 1ms faster than the HP ProDisplay P240va (8ms).

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 USB Hub
The HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only has a built-in USB hub, whereas the HP ProDisplay P240va does not.

This indicates whether the monitor has a bank of USBs built into it or not.

A usb hub provides a helpful area to plug in memory cards, charging cables and other peripherals without having to ferret under your desk to plug them into the back of the computer.

Read more Read less | Edit
Better Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the HP EliteDisplay E242 Head Only is "A+", however the rating of the HP ProDisplay P240va is "A".
1 Reason For
