Asus MG278Q 27"
Dell S2716DG
Total tilt adjustment is the ability for the monitor head to move up and down. Tilt adjustment enables a user to change the viewing position of the display, creating a more comfortable view of the screen.

362.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

A swivel stand allows you to adjust the position of the display left or right, so you can position it to the desired angle.
4.thickness

233mm

55.6mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

625mm

612.5mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Supports VESA mount

108ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels

It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
