2.height

368mm

384.6mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.Has a swivel stand
Asus MG278Q 27"
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
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.width

625mm

637.3mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.thickness

233mm

47.9mm

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.
6.Supports VESA mount

Display

1.response time

1ms

8ms

Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
2.resolution

2560 x 1440px

5120 x 2880px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

27"

27"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.pixel density

108ppi

218ppi

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
Asus MG278Q 27"
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has an IPS screen
Asus MG278Q 27"
Dell UltraSharp UP2715K
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. 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.
