The Viotek GN27DB 27-inch curved 1440p 144Hz FreeSync gaming monitor has dropped to $299.99 on Amazon. This monitor was selling as high as $350 at the beginning of the year and more recently has been selling for around $330. The drop to $300 is an all new low. And here's a bonus you don't see in monitors very often: this monitor (and the deal price) comes in a white version.
These are very good monitors going for a very good price.
So Viotek is not a name that immediately jumps out like Asus or LG, but they are very popular displays on Amazon. This one has 4.2 stars based on 772 reviews. So what's the deal? Are these any good? Turns out Viotek uses quality Samsung VA panels and cuts costs in the build and the color accuracy. It'll be up to you to either accept the colors as they are or use something like the Spyder5Pro calibration tool. And thanks to being VESA mountable, the build quality is an easy weakness to get around. What you end up with is a really high-quality monitor at a budget price, and that's good for everyone.
