Looking for an upgrade for your computer screen? The Monoprice Zero-G curved gaming monitor has dropped to $199.99 at Amazon. The monitor normally sells for around $282, and it has never been discounted on Amazon before. Even the open-box version on the Monoprice website is $30 more than today's deal, which is brand new. This is a huge discount on a very solid monitor, and chances are the deal will go out of stock before long.
This monitor has 1440p resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. It has 400 nits of peak brightness, which is great for HDR content, and it has a 1500R curve for immersion. It also works with a 75 x 75 VESA mount for an arm or wall mount.
The Monoprice monitor is built for gamers. The specifications include a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and a super-fast 144Hz refresh rate. Both specs are great for gamers or even media watchers. Whatever you're going to do with your monitor, this one will do it well. It uses a VA panel and has a 6ms response time.
it's got some other great features, too. For example, adaptive sync allows you to reduce screen tearing while playing some high-octane video games. It uses AMD FreeSync so it syncs with your AMD graphics card to make that happen. When using the DisplayPort connection or the HDMI 2.0 port you can get both FreeSync and the 144Hz refresh rate.
A lot of monitors tout HDR compatibility, but you really need a lot of brightness from your screen to take advantage of that. Luckily this screen has 400 nits of brightness, so your HDR content will look great. Also, if you don't like the included stand or you just want to put this monitor on an arm or wall mount, it has a 75 x 75 VESA mounting pattern.
