Reasons For

Philips 220B4 Viewsonic VX2770
2 Reasons For
Faster Response Time
The Philips 220B4 is a 5ms response time PC monitor. That's 2ms faster than the Viewsonic VX2770 (7ms).

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.

41% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Philips 220B4 is £28 cheaper to run than the Viewsonic VX2770 over five years.
Read more Read less
4 Reasons For
Bigger Display Diagonal
The Viewsonic VX2770 is a 27" PC monitor. That's 5" bigger than the Philips 220B4 (22").

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 Viewsonic VX2770 has a vertical viewing angle of 178°, but the Philips 220B4 is only a 160° vertical viewing angle PC monitor (18° 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
5% Wider Horizontal Viewing Angle
The Viewsonic VX2770 is a 178° horizontal viewing angle PC monitor. That's 8° wider than the Philips 220B4 (170°).

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.
