If you're looking to upgrade from 1080p or to something with a higher refresh rate for gaming, today's your day. LG's 27GL850-B 27-inch 1440p gaming monitor has dropped to just $346.99 at Amazon. This price matches its low, and it's a price it has usually only dropped to during big sales events or the holiday shopping season. The monitor sells for around $400 usually and has jumped as high as $480 recently. Avoid those high marks and grab it while it's down this low because we're sure it won't last long at this price.
This is just a great monitor for gamers. Its specifications are exactly what you want without costing too much. The display includes a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1 ms response time thanks to the Nano IPS technology in its IPS panel. Normally IPS panels don't have response times that fast, but thinks have changed recently in the monitor world and IPS panels have improved much. At the time of this monitor's release it was called one of the fastest response times ever for similar panels.
You also get adaptive sync tech with this monitor, which helps reduce motion blur while gaming as long as you have the right graphics card. Natively it has AMD FreeSync, which is great if you use an AMD graphics card. It is also Nvidia G-Sync compatible. If you're using a Nvidia graphics card from the 20xx series or later, you can connect via the DIsplayPort on the back to get G-Sync working and help you reduce screen tearing. The DisplayPort connection is ideal either way because that's how you get the 144Hz refresh rate.
It comes with an ultra-thin bezel and a stand that is tilt, height, and pivot adjustable. You can also forego the stand for a wall or arm mount with the Vesa 100 x 100mm standard.
