Dell has a unique price on the Alienware AW2521HFL gaming monitor. You can get it right now for just $269.99 through the Dell online store. The same monitor can be found going for around $370 through third parties on Amazon or for as much as $400 at other retailers like Best Buy. It can even sell for as much as $525 at Dell on a bad day. Wherever you're looking for it, no one has a better price than Dell right now. This deal surely won't last forever so grab it while you can.
The key to this monitor is that 240Hz refresh rate. Most monitors have an average refresh rate of around 60Hz, and even when you're looking for something higher than that most of the time you're looking for something around 144Hz. Going any higher usually means a huge jump in price, but this Alienware monitor defies those standards and gets you to 240Hz without driving you to bankruptcy in the process. If you're a gamer and you're into fast-paced or competitive games like Call of Duty or Halo infinite, you will really appreciate the jump in the refresh rate.
The rest of the monitor's features aren't bad at all, either. You get a 24.5-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It uses IPS panel technology for great color accuracy and viewing angles. It also has adaptive sync tech. The AMD FreeSync Premium tech will work with your AMD graphics cards for a better experience and less screen tearing. It is also Nvidia G-Sync compatible so you can use a DisplayPort connection with a modern graphics card to make the same feature work with your Nvidia graphics card.
