Sometimes a Black Friday deal comes and goes and you’ve missed your chance by the time you realize you want it. Sometimes they come back. This deal from Dell is one we saw on Cyber Monday, but if you missed it then consider today your second chance to save big. The Dell S2721DGF 27-inch 1440p gaming monitor is down to $329.99 through the Dell website. That’s a great price that we first saw this monitor reach over the holiday shopping weekend. Before then it was selling for as much as $400, and it’s still going for that price in some places. The deal also comes with next-day delivery so you can get it and start using it right away.
Dell S2721DGF 27-inch monitor | $70 off
If you’re a gamer or a content creator or someone who just needs a great screen to work with, the S2721DGF is a great possibility. It really hits that balance of awesome specifications without breaking the bank. The display has a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 1ms response time, and a refresh rate that maxes out at 165Hz. That’s even above the 144Hz “standard” most gamers are looking for. Even if you just connect via HDMI instead of DisplayPort you can still achieve 144Hz.
With an IPS panel, the Dell monitor ensures top notch viewing angles and great color accuracy. In the past, IPS meant sacrificing other things, particularly response time. Technology is catching up to quality, though, and now you can get an amazing 1ms response time as well. Previous generations used a TN panel to achieve that, which usually meant much worse color. So you get the same specifications, and, in some ways, it’s just overall better than previous generations.
Other features include AMD FreeSync to help reduce screen tearing and a USB hub that includes two USB-A 3.0 ports for connecting other peripherals. The monitor is also G-Sync compatible so it will work with AMD or Nvidia graphics cards.
