This 27-inch curved WQHD display sports HDR400, a 165 Hz refresh rate with FreeSync, flicker-free low blue light technology, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and a 3000:1 contrast ratio — all housed in a svelte design with VESA compatible mounting. 

The more you read down the spec list, the more this deal is a no-brainer. This is a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p resolution, a 3000:1 contrast ratio and DisplayHDR400 certification for greater luminosity.

Gameplay is kept silky smooth at a fast 165 Hz refresh rate, with FreeSync built-in to stop any screen tearing (AMD’s adaptive sync technology). And all of this is enclosed in a nicely designed chassis with an infinite level of customization on its own stand or VESA mounting compatibility, to easily fit into your setup.
