LG"s 27-inch 1440p 165Hz Ultragear gaming monitor has dropped to just $396.99 at Amazon. You can also find it going for this price at a couple of other retailers like B&H. It is a unique deal price and the lowest we have ever seen. This monitor normally goes for just under $500, and even when it has gone on sale has only dropped to around $450. This is a Black Friday price if ever there was one, so if you're interested pick it up now because it could just sell out at this low of a price.
LG has a lot of great monitors, but this is one of the newest generation. It only released earlier this year, so you're getting the most recent tech built into it. That includes LG's Nano IPS display, which manages to squeeze the most of the monitor without sacrificing on response times or color accuracy as IPS panels tend to do.
What you end up with is a 27-inch screen with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 165Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. The screen looks great, and that refresh rate is way above average. You'll really see the difference if you play a lot of shooters like Call of Duty: Vanguard or Halo Infinite.
The screen has adaptive sync technology built in with AMD FreeSync Premium natively. It is also Nvidia G-Sync compatible. So whether you use an AMD graphics card or a Nvidia graphics card, you can reduce screen tearing during high octane moments. You'll just need to make sure you have a Nvidia graphics card from the 20xx series or later if you want that to work, and you'll want to use a DisplayPort connection. You should be doing that anyway because it's the best way to get that high 165Hz refresh rate.
In addition to the DisplayPort connection and the two HDMI ports in the back, the monitor also has a USB 3.0 hub with two USB-A ports.
