This 28-inch, 4K monitor is a steal and is even fit for casual gaming. When we reviewed it, we were impressed with its speedy 1ms response time, 60Hz refresh rate and FreeSync. On Amazon Prime Day in July, we spotted this monitor at $347, but now it’s even cheaper at $250.

Scoring a gaming-worthy 4K display for under $500 sounds too good to be true. But in our BenQ EL2870U review, we were impressed by its ability to game. While it’s not the best 4K gaming monitor and isn’t better than gaming on a QHD monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate and combined with FreeSync a low 1ms response time, we enjoyed lag-free gaming. If you’re a casual gamer, this is a great way to get a 4K monitor that also supports HDR at a bargain.
