Reasons For

NEC E171M-BK Neovo X-17P
5 Reasons For
Moderately Wider Vertical Viewing Angle
The NEC E171M-BK has a vertical viewing angle of 170°, but the Neovo X-17P is only a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (10° 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
HDCP
The NEC E171M-BK has an HDCP, but the Neovo X-17P does not have an HDCP.

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

2 Reasons For
Vastly Faster Response Time
The Neovo X-17P has a response time of 3ms, however the NEC E171M-BK is a 5ms response time PC monitor (2ms 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.
