Dell’s Awesome 27″ 2K 165Hz Monitor Now $189
- Dell S2722DGM 27″, 165Hz 2K Monitor: Now at Dell for $189 (opens in new tab)(was $289)
Even with the best sales, 2K (2560 x 1440) gaming monitors rarely sell for less than $200. But not today; Dell has the 27-inch, 2K Dell S2722DGM monitor. Only $189, down from $289. This is a really great monitor. We gave him 4 stars. The price is so low that he can give one or more of his relatives as a gift without breaking the bank. For example, he ordered one for his 10 year old son.
When we reviewed the Dell S2722DGM back in February, we praised the monitor for its strong color saturation and excellent contrast, along with its excellent build quality. I was. Not only does this provide vivid images, but it’s also enough to play games on a sunny day even when the computer is near a window.
Its contrast ratio was a mighty 2536:1. That’s, at least in part, thanks to the VA panel. IPS panels tend to top out at 1000:1.
According to the colorimeter, the Dell S2722DGM can reproduce up to 111.8% of the sRGB color gamut, and a slightly less than impressive 75% of DCI-P3.
If you want a bigger screen, better colors and contrast for more money, consider the S2722DGM’s bigger sibling, the Dell S3222DGM. This is a 32 inch with the same 2K resolution and 165 Hz refresh rate. Currently on sale. All-time low $249 (opens in new tab) at Best Buy.
Dell’s 32-inch 4K Gaming Behemoth drops to $599
- Dell G3223Q 32″, 4K 144Hz Monitor: Now $599 (opens in new tab) (was $799)
Whether you’re buying a monitor for gaming, productivity, or both, stepping up to 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution is a big win. You get sharper, richer images and tons of space for text. But getting a decent gaming monitor that works at 4K often comes at a cost.
However, as part of Dell’s Cyber Monday sale, we’re offering the Dell G3223Q 32-inch, 4K gaming monitor. Only $599, (opens in new tab) Price reduced from $799. At 144 Hz, the G3223Q tops the list of best 4K gaming monitors thanks to its colorful image output, strong build quality, and low input lag.
I reviewed the Dell G3223Q and was impressed with its performance. On our light meter, the Dell monitor managed 459 nits of brightness. That number climbed to 607 nits with HDR enabled.
The Dell G3223Q reliably reproduced 99% of the sRGB gamut and 92% of the DCI-P3 gamut. These aren’t the best numbers among the competition, but they’re still very strong.
In practice, color accuracy may be more important than amount of color gamut, and G3223Q excels here. The factory accuracy is so high that even calibration didn’t improve the image quality. Its average gamma deviation was just 0.45, lower (and better) than any of its competitors.
However, this is a gaming monitor, not necessarily a photo editing monitor. It is therefore very important to note that the G3223Q has a very short absolute input delay of only 30 ms.
Dell’s 32-inch, 165 Hz S3222HG at just $199 is a great deal
- Dell S3222HG 32″, 165Hz monitor: Now at Dell for $199 (opens in new tab) (was $299)
There are lots of great deals on Dell monitors this Cyber Monday season. The good news is that at $200, the Rubicon has some pretty great options. I previously wrote about the 27″ Dell S2722DGM. $189 (opens in new tab) It has 2K resolution. But for just $10 more, there are bigger options.
Dell now has a 32″ S3222HG, Only $199 (opens in new tab)has been reduced from $299. This monitor has a resolution of 1080p, a refresh rate of 165 Hz, and promises 350 nits of brightness and 99% coverage of the sRGB color gamut.
We reviewed the Dell S3222HG, praising its excellent contrast, accurate colors, and excellent gaming performance. With our light meter, Dell’s display is as bright as the spec sheet says it is, achieving a brightness of 352.2 nits.
Our colorimeter found the Dell S3222HG to output 88.7% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and a whopping 127.5% of the sRGB color gamut.
Perhaps most impressive is that the monitor produced a contrast ratio of 3,591.3:1. This is very impressive even on screens with VA panels. This kind of contrast makes bright colors really pop.
Usually when you spend less than $200 on a gaming monitor you have to make a lot of compromises. However, the S3222HG’s only compromise is its only 1080p resolution. This isn’t ideal, but depending on your gaming PC’s graphics card, you may not want to play games at higher resolutions.
4K, 144 Hz Gaming $449: Gigabyte M28U Hits New Lows
With a 28-inch panel, 4K resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate, the Gigabyte M28U gaming monitor offers Newegg for $449.99. This is the lowest price we’ve seen. It last covered the deal when it was $599 on Memorial Day.
For console players, the M28U supports HDMI 2.1, allowing PS5 and Xbox Series X to play at 4K at 120Hz. This monitor also has KVM built in so you can easily switch between devices.
It’s VESA compatible (with a 100 x 100 mm adapter) but also comes with an included stand. Ports include DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.1 ports, 3x USB 3.0 ports, and USB Type-C ports.
Aorus 48-inch 4K OLED 120 Hz now for just $779
- Aorus FO48U 48 inch, 4K OLED 120 Hz Monitor: Now $779 (opens in new tab) (was $1,499)
If you have the real big screen space for PC and console gaming, Gigabyte’s Aorus FO48U OLED monitor has long been voted the best 4K 120Hz gaming monitor thanks to its highest contrast and accurate color.and that Newegg’s current low price is $779 (opens in new tab), much cheaper than LG’s 48-inch C1 OLED TV with a 120Hz refresh rate. This price is a whopping 49% cheaper than the price the Aorus FO48U OLED was selling for when we reviewed it last summer.
We tested the Aorus FO48U and found it to have pro-level accuracy right out of the box, the ability to deliver over 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, and even excellent audio with a 3-speaker 50W soundbar. I was.
The FO48U’s peak measured brightness is around 400 nits, which can’t compete with high-end LCDs, but black levels are literally too good to measure, matching Alienware’s own large OLED displays.
With two HDMI 2.1 ports (with VRR support) and DisplayPort 1.4 with Display Stream Compression, this monitor is ready for the latest consoles and PCs. It also has built-in KVM so you can share peripherals between screen-connected devices.
If you’re wondering if your existing desk can handle this huge screen, the monitor measures 42 inches wide by 9.9 inches deep and has support feet. As someone who has used huge screens as monitors for years (I’m writing this on a 55″ LG OLED), I highly recommend wall mounting if possible. This allows you to move the monitor away from your desk and (with the proper mount) move the screen a few inches back from where you’re sitting. Unless you like neck and back pain, you should stay at least 30 inches away from this big screen.
From a few years of personal experience (and over a year of using my 55″ OLED as a monitor), I can say that once set up properly, nothing compares to the monitor experience of a giant OLED display. And with the Aorus FO48U at $769, you won’t find much better without spending a few hundred dollars more.
HyperX Armada 27 Brilliant QHD Gaming Monitor Now $399
The HyperX Armada 27 is a 27 inch QHD/IPS gaming monitor and one of the best QHD/165 Hz gaming monitors we’ve seen to date. All-time low at just $399.
The Armada 27 delivers excellent images thanks to its wide and accurate color gamut, flexible calibration and balanced performance. Instead of a traditional stand, the monitor ships with a high quality mounting arm. It’s not common, but it’s very useful and much more flexible than a regular desktop stand.
When I reviewed the HyperX Armada 27, I appreciated its vibrant and accurate colors, strong build quality, and excellent video processing. On our colorimeter, the monitor gave a strong 91.5% of his DCI-P3 gamut and 94.6% of his sRGB gamut.
Perhaps more importantly, it was one of the more accurate monitors we tested with a gamut error of just 0.87. Lower is better here.
The Armada 27 has a maximum refresh rate of 165 Hz, so it’s not as fast as a 240 Hz monitor. Elsewhere he has less input lag than QHD/165 Hz monitors, with a total control delay of 27 ms, not lagging far behind the 240 Hz cloud.
All in all, at $399, this monitor is a little more expensive than some of its 27-inch, 2K competitors, but it’s worth the price as it brings a lot of quality and color accuracy to the table.

- Acer Nitro ED270 Xbmiipx 27″, 240 Hz Monitor: Now $189 At Newegg (opens in new tab)(was $299)
Even a 165 Hz display is too sluggish for some competitive gamers. Luckily, this Cyber Monday, you don’t have to spend $200 to get a monitor that runs up to 240Hz. So if you’re playing titles like Call of Duty or League of Legends and want a faster response so you can hit moving targets, get Acer’s Nitro ED270 XBmiipx 27-inch, 240 Hz display. I can. Only $189 At Newegg (opens in new tab).

On the connectivity side, there are two HDMI 1.4 ports and one DisplayPort 1.2 port. No built-in speakers. However, I’m not going to complain at this price point.
