You can get LG's 27GN800-B 1440p gaming monitor on sale for just $294.99 at Amazon right now. This is a huge price drop and the lowest price we've ever seen for the monitor. It's pretty close to a deal we shared back in April, but it's actually better than that price by about $2. And this compares to its regular price that's usually around $340 or more (sometimes as high as $400). You can find this deal price-matched at a couple of different retailers like B&H.
If you're a gamer, the specifications on the monitor are ideal. It's a 27-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and a 1 ms response time. It also uses an IPS panel, which is crazy given that IPS panels usually have much slower response times. Some reviews have called it one of the fastest response times ever measured for a panel like this.
IPS panels also ensure really great viewing angles, so the picture won't fade just cause your chair is crooked. And you also get good color accuracy with SRGB 99% color gamut and HDR 10 support. The display is virtually borderless on three sides, which gives it a sleek look that's also extremely immersive.
With those stats and the adaptive sync technology built in, you won't notice any motion blur while gaming. It defaults to AMD FreeSync tech, which works with your AMD graphics card to reduce screen tearing. However, it's also officially compatible with Nvidia G-Sync, so you can use this with your Nvidia graphics card as well. Just plug in via DisplayPort to get that G-Sync tech working. You'll want to use the DisplayPort anyway for gaming because it's the best way to ensure you're getting the 144Hz refresh rate.
