Dell's S2522HG 24.5-inch 240Hz gaming monitor has dropped to a low price of just $209.99 through Amazon. This is a really good deal. Not only is it the lowest price we've ever seen for this display, we're talking about a monitor that regularly sells for around $280 and can jump as high as $320. Last year we were sharing deals on this monitor when it dropped to $260 because that was a good price, and look at it now! The screen is the same, but the value is just that much greater thanks to Amazon's price.
Hard to find a 240Hz monitor going for this low while still maintaining other great features like a 1ms response time, a 1080p resolution, and a fully adjustable stand.
You know how most monitors, especially gaming monitors, generally sit around 1080p or 1440p resolutions because the leap to 4K usually requires a leap in price most people aren't willing to pay? The same is often true of refresh rates. Your average monitor has a refresh rate of 60Hz, and you're going to pay more for higher options. The 144Hz refresh rate is generally considered the best upgrade without going nuts on price. The sweet spot. Well, Dell's monitor on sale here today has a refresh rate of 240Hz. That would normally cost you an arm and a leg, which is what makes this such a great deal.
In addition to that 240Hz refresh rate, you also get 1080p pixel resolution and a 1ms response time, which means you get a smooth performance even during intense gameplay or high-octane action. The IPS panel ensures you have great image clarity and fantastic color accuracy. The screen also has AMD FreeSync to help reduce screen tearing, and it is G-Sync compatible so it will work with your Nvidia graphics cards as well.
Use the monitor's fully adjustable stand that can swivel, pivot, and tilt to find the best possible position for you. Watch your media or play your games in absolute comfort for much longer periods when you can get the angle absolutely right.
