The Acer Predator 27-inch gaming monitor is down to $379.99 at Amazon. This is a Prime Day deal but it's more like a Prime Day steal since this monitor was selling for $550 yesterday. You'd have to go back more than a year to find this monitor selling anywhere near this low.
This is an easy deal to miss, too, because the Predator is squeezed onto a sales page that includes dozens of other monitors, laptops, and pre-built desktops. Of course those are all good deals so you could look through it if you're interested in something else. Luckily Prime Day deals include a whole lot of savings.
Gaming monitor deal
The Acer Predator includes 1440p resolutions, a 144Hz refresh rate, a 4ms response time, and Nvidia G-Sync compatibility. This price is unique and one of the best we've ever seen.
$550 $170 off
The specifications for this Acer Predator monitor are perfect for gamers. It has a 27-inch screen, 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 4ms response time. If you're into shooters and other high-octane games, you need a 144Hz refresh rate. There's a huge difference between that and the standard 60Hz most monitors use. You'll be on top of the action in a way you won't believe. Plus, that 1440p resolution gives you a crisp, beautiful image that doesn't also lead to a huge jump in price the way a 4K monitor would.
The monitor uses an IPS panel, too. That means great color accuracy and good horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Add on the two integrated 2W speakers and a stand that can tilt and swivel with adjustable height. Of course, if you don't care about the stand you can use the VESA compatibility to mount it to the wall or a separate arm mount. It also has a brightness of 350 nits.
The native adaptive sync technology is AMD FreeSync, but if you use a Nvidia graphics card the Predator is G-Sync compatible. Just connect via the DIsplayPort, which is what you'll want to use for the maximum refresh rate anyway. There's also an HDMI port.
