HP's 27-inch 1440p FreeSync monitor has dropped to $231 for the first time

The HP 27-inch Ultra Wide WQHD monitor (opens in new tab) is down to $230.92 on Amazon. The monitor normally sells for $350, and it has never dropped from that price in its history on Amazon. We know HP likes to run sales on its own website from time-to-time, but even those sales never saw the 27xq drop this low. The next best price anywhere is $280 at Newegg (opens in new tab) and other retailers sell it for as high as $400 or more.

The HP 27xq uses a TN panel. Compared to other panel types, like IPS and VA, TN offers super fast response times. It's also much less expensive to produce so you can get some excellent specifications without breaking the bank. Unfortunately, TN panels tend to sacrifice color accuracy and viewing angles to reach these goals. So you should decide if that's something that matters to you. If this is primarily a gaming monitor or a monitor you use by yourself, that shouldn't be a problem.

The monitor has a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440, a refresh rate of 144 Hz, and a response time of 1 ms. These are ideal specs and ridiculous for the price. All high-paced action and intense gaming will be free of motion blur and look crisp and clear. The Quad HD display and 3.7 million pixels will help capture every detail.

Use AMD's FreeSync technology to further reduce any motion blur or screen tearing during high octane action. Connect your monitor to your graphics card via DisplayPort so you can get the most out of the monitor's technology.
