The Dell S2719DGF 27-inch FreeSync monitor is down to $299.99 at Best Buy. You can also currently find this price at Amazon (opens in new tab). It's one of the best prices we've seen in several months because this monitor actually jumped really high in price recently. It was going out of stock and suffering from surges in cost because of that. We have seen it go as high as $450 and generally settle around $400. Today's drop is not the lowest we have ever seen, but it is the lowest we've seen since February.

Dell S2719DGF 27-inch FreeSync monitor (opens in new tab)

Has been out of stock and running high in price since earlier this year. Specs include 1440p resolution, up to 155Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. It has FreeSync but works with G-Sync. Connect via HDMI, DisplayPort, or the USB hub.

If you're a gamer or spend a lot of time in front of your computer and just want one all-around great monitor, this is it. The Dell 27-inch has 2K Quad HD 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 1 ms response time, and a 144 Hz refresh rate. If you connect through the DisplayPort, you can overclock the monitor to a 155 Hz refresh rate, but you'll get up to 144 Hz even if you just connect through the HDMI 2.0 port.

The connectivity options include two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, and a USB hub with four USB 3.0 ports. Hubs like that are really nice for getting all your peripherals plugged in, especially if your desktop doesn't have a huge amount of ports in the back.

Despite being a TN panel, which usually means sacrificing viewing angles for faster response times, it has viewing angles up to 170 degrees. That means you can still watch your media even from different vantage points around the screen.

The monitor also has adaptive sync, which reduces screen tearing during high-performance moments. The default tech is AMD's FreeSync, but it is also compatible with Nvidia's G-Sync tech. In order to get it to use that you'll need to connect via DisplayPort and have a Nvidia graphics card from the 10xx or 20xx series.

  • should be below $200.
  • Because? This monitor continually comes up high on many lists for its 1440p and 144hz. Actually one of the cheaper ones you can get
