Head over to Amazon (opens in new tab) and grab the LG 27GN800-B 1440p gaming monitor down to its low Cyber Monday price of $276.99. This monitor has been selling for around $350 for most of the past year, and we even saw it jump as high as $400 on occassion. We've seen it go as low as $295 in the past, but even those deals didn't last too long. We first saw this price drop right before Black Friday, but it sold out before the weekend and sold out again on Monday. It's back and the price hasn't jumped yet, so jump on this deal while you can because it's obviously pretty popular. If it does sell out again, you can find the deal at a couple other retailers like B&H (opens in new tab).

A great monitor that includes a 2560x1440 resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. It has an IPS panel for great viewing angles. It's also G-Sync compatible with FreeSync native support.

If you're a gamer, the specifications on the monitor are ideal. It's a 27-inch screen with 2560x1440 resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms 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.

  • If you're gaming on a Series S, would just using an HDMI cable be better than using a DisplayPort cable with an HDMI adapter?
  • No. Most of these 2k/144 Hz monitors ONLY support the high refresh rate on their Displayport, not on the HDMI port.
