A high refresh rate and low response time are both hallmarks of the best gaming monitors for playing competitive games like Rainbow Six Siege and Black Ops: Cold War, helping you smoothly track enemies as they dash across your screen. Should the display have a nice curve, you’ve also got something immersive for story games to suck you in. Thankfully, Dell has a great discount on a display that fits the bill and you’ll struggle to find a monitor as good as this with its current deal price.
Over on Amazon US, the creatively-named Dell S2721HGF is discounted 19% ($54), bringing it down from $279 to $224.99. And for UK customers, the reduction is even more pronounced, with 31% (£75) off, bringing the price down from £244 to just £169.
It’s one of the few gaming monitors that actually has Nvidia’s G-Sync alongside the more commonplace AMD FreeSync – so, if you are on team green, you won’t have to worry about learning how to enable FreeSync on an Nvidia GPU.
The 27-inch panel has a butter-smooth 144Hz refresh rate and a top-class 1ms MPRT response time. It’s screen is near-bezel-less with a slight 1500R curvature and a VA panel that shows nice, deep blacks, so it should also immerse you in some of the latest graphical masterpieces like Cyberpunk 2077 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
