While other retailers are selling the 27-inch Dell S2719DGF gaming monitor for as high as $400, it can be yours today from Amazon for just $275.49 (opens in new tab), the lowest price we've seen yet and one of today's best holiday tech deals (opens in new tab)

In our Dell S2719DGF review, (opens in new tab) we praised its out-of-the-box performance, which included accurate color and, of course, a lot of speed. However, with a TN panel (opens in new tab) built primarily for fast, competitive gaming, contrast could be better.

The Dell S2719DGF is a 27-inch TN panel with 1440p resolution. It's fit for competitive gamers, with a refresh rate that can be overclocked to 155Hz (144Hz otherwise), plus a 1ms (GTG) response and FreeSync. In our review (opens in new tab), we wished for better contrast, however. 

The 27-inch panel is a great size for both gaming and office work. If you're currently using a FHD (opens in new tab)(1920 x 1080) screen, you'll be getting a boost in sharpness, thanks to this display's higher QHD (opens in new tab) resolution (2560 x 1440). 

In terms of gaming attributes, the Dell S2719DGF has a native 144Hz refresh rate that can be overclocked to 155Hz. It also flexes a 1ms gray to gray response time and supports AMD FreeSync (opens in new tab) for fighting screen tearing if your gaming PC (opens in new tab) uses an AMD graphics card (opens in new tab)

The Dell S2719DGF has plenty of interfaces to go around. You have access to two HDMI ports with HDCP support, one DisplayPort 1.2 output, one headphone jack, and one audio line-out port. The monitor even has its own USB 3.0 hub that provides four USB 3.0 downstream ports and one USB 3.0 upstream port.
