The same places that were bumpin' with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals tend to be barren wastelands in the days afterwards. It's like going to a night club the day after just to find it's an abandoned office building. Some of the deals do survive, although it's hard to know just how long they will last. So you should act fast if this is interesting to you.
Grab the Dell S2722DGM 27-inch 1440p curved gaming monitor on sale for just $239.99 through Dell's online store (opens in new tab). This is the lowest price ever on this monitor, which was selling for as much as $340 in August and has had a street price around $300 since. We even shared a deal on this screen back in September when it dropped to $285 because that seemed pretty good at the time. Not as good as this, though! You can also find these savings at Amazon (opens in new tab), although once the Dell deal goes away that one will too, most likely.
Dell S2722DGM 27-inch curved monitor | $60 off (opens in new tab)
The lowest price we've ever seen on this monitor. It has 1440p resolution, a 1500R curve for immersion and realistic visuals, and a 165Hz refresh rate that makes it great for gaming. It has AMD FreeSync natively and includes an adjustable stand.
Dell always has a whole lot of value built into these S Series screens. It's just got all of those great features that any gamer is looking for in a screen. For one thing, it has a 1500R curve to it. That really adds to the immersion and your overall experience. It keeps the visuals from every edge of the display right in front of you, and it's still nice enough that you could put a couple of them next to each other and fully surround yourself.
The 27-inch screen has a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440 and a refresh rate of 165Hz. That 1440p resolution is the sweet spot for creative types and video gamers who want to upgrade but don't want to sacrifice a ton of other features like you might have to with a 4K monitor. The 165Hz refresh rate, for example, would be hard to find on a 4K screen without paying a huge premium that's probably outside your budget. And you want that refresh rate because it really helps with high-octane games like shooters.
If you have an AMD graphics card, you can use AMD FreeSync with this monitor to reduce motion blur and screen tearing. That just adds to the excellent clarity. The monitor also has a great stand with tilt and height that can be adjusted until you're comfortable. Includes two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort as well.
J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now covers deals for Android Central, iMore, and Windows Central. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
I have the 32-inch version of this monitor - two of them in fact - and I'm very happy with it. I have them attached via DisplayPort to my desktop machine and via HDMI to a Surface Dock 2 and a Surface Pro 7 for work. It took a bit of time to get used to the curvature but I don't even notice it now. The only issue I have is that you can see that the lighting is uneven if you have a fully dark screen. It is alternatively lighter and darker, but I suspect that this is common in curved monitors. I really don't notice it in general use though.
