Playing your favorite titles at 4K (opens in new tab)resolution is a luxury that promises game-changing image quality with sharper detail than lower resolution QHD (opens in new tab)or FHD (opens in new tab)options. That level of experience comes at a price, but with Black Friday tech deals (opens in new tab) approaching, now is the time to keep your eyes out for 4K gaming monitor deals.
Today, we’ve found just that. Newegg is offering the LG 27UD58P-B, a 27-inch FreeSync gaming monitor for $269.99, which is $70 off its original price.

With 4K resolution and AMD FreeSync, the LG 27UD58P-B should offer sharp image quality and decent gaming performance for mainstream gamers.
We haven’t reviewed the LG 27UD58P-B, but with a 60Hz refresh rate, 5ms response time and FreeSync (opens in new tab) for fighting screen tearing with AMD graphics cards (opens in new tab), it sounds promising for casual gamers. It’s not the speediest gaming monitor and, thus, won’t satisfy the most competitive, skilled players. But mainstream users can expect strong viewing angles and typical contrast and brightness at 1,000:1 and 250 nits max, respectively.
The monitor also features two 1.2W speakers and a stand that allows for portrait mode, as well as tilt, height, swivel and pivoting.
