565mm

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

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 1080px

1920 x 1080px

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.

29"

24"

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