With the Xbox Series S, a $300, 1440p console, on the horizon, there's even more reason to start looking at QHD monitors. Thanks to continuing Labor Day sales, that's a little easier today. The Dell S2721D is currently marked down to $239.99 on Dell’s website, down from $319.99.
The Dell S2721D is a 27-inch IPS display with a 75 Hz max refresh rate. It fights scree tears with AMD FreeSync and 100 x 100mm VESA mount compatible and comes with built-in 3W speakers. Dell advertises 99% sRGB color coverage, and you can also upgrade to an adjustable height stand for $25 more.
It’s tough to find high resolution IPS monitors for below $250, and while this one can’t support the high frame rates like the best gaming monitors, it's still an enticing pick for gamers on a budget, especially if they don’t play many competitive multiplayer games.
