Reasons For

HP ENVY 34 LG 27M45HQ
4 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The HP ENVY 34 has a display diagonal of 34", but the LG 27M45HQ is only a 27" PC monitor (7" 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
Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The HP ENVY 34 is a 178° vertical viewing angle PC monitor. That's 18° wider than the LG 27M45HQ (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
Moderately Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The HP ENVY 34 has a horizontal viewing angle of 178°, but the LG 27M45HQ 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
Two HDMI Ports
