If you've been looking for a great computer monitor upgrade but don't want to empty your wallet for one, then check out Best Buy's Black Friday sale. You can get the Dell S2721DGF 27-inch 1440p monitor (opens in new tab) for a low price of $329.99. That's $70 off what the monitor goes for at other retailers as much as $140 off Best Buy's regular price. While we used to see regular deals on Dell monitors, they have been a lot less common this year. This deal, for example, is the lowest price we've seen since February and beats out a price drop we shared back in September by $40. You can also find this price through the Dell website (opens in new tab).
Dell S2721DGF 27-inch monitor | $70 off (opens in new tab)
This is a top notch gaming monitor. It has a native 1440p resolution with a refresh rate up to 165 Hz and a 1ms response time. Has an IPS panel with great viewing angles and colors. Includes two HDMI, one DisplayPort, and a USB 3.0 hub.
The Dell S2721DGF is a followup to an extremely popular monitor that we've shared deals on several times, the S2719DGF (opens in new tab). That older monitor has been struggling to stay in stock this year despite its popularity and the price has jumped as a result. We have seen it drop below $300 in the past, but these days $450 or more is a more expected price.
What you get with Dell's 27-inch screen is a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440, a 1ms response time, and a refresh rate that can reach as high as 165Hz with the right connection. Those are fantastic gaming stats. The 1ms response time is particularly impressive if you consider this monitor is using an IPS panel. Previous generations used a TN panel, which was cheaper but had less impressive viewing angles and colors. Now you get the same super fast response time with much better specifications overall.
The monitor also has AMD's FreeSync tech natively. This works with your AMD graphics card to help reduce screen tearing in high-octane games or movies. It's also Nvidia G-Sync compatible, which means you can get the same functionality from a Nvidia graphics card to reduce motion blur. Of course, for G-Sync compatibility you'll need to be connected via the DisplayPort, which is also essential for reaching a 165Hz refresh rate.
Use the VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard combined with 400 nits of brightness for the best HDR content support and watch content with even better image quality.
In addition to one DisplayPort, the monitor also has two HDMI ports capable of up to 144Hz refresh rates. There's also a USB hub that includes two USB-A 3.0 ports for connecting other peripherals.
