Upgrade your workspace with a new monitor. This Acer Nitro VG271 27-inch screen has dropped to just $199.99 through Amazon (opens in new tab). This is a unique price that matches the lowest we've ever seen. It has only dropped this low once in the last year, and that sale happened during the Black Friday shopping weekend. Normally the Acer Nitro is going for something closer to $300, so you're saving quite a bit with today's sale. You won't find this deal at any other retailer, and you'll actually find some places selling it for even more than its $300 street price right now.

The specs for this display include a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. It also has AMD FreeSync tech and both DisplayPort and HDMI for connectivity. The price ain't nothin' to sneeze at.

You get a lot of bang for your buck with this monitor, especially if you're into video games. After all, if you're playing games on a PC capable of much more than the standard 60Hz then you really need a monitor that can show that off. With Acer's 27-inch screen you do get a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, and you also get a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. It manages that 1ms response time even with an IPS panel, which is fantastic.

It also has AMD FreeSync technology, which means if you have an AMD graphics card this monitor can help reduce screen tearing. That combined with the high refresh rate means you get a smooth, immersive, experience no matter what you're doing.

Connectivity on the back includes two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort. You also get two built-in speakers and VisionCare technology to help prevent eye fatigue from long sessions.
