If you’re going all-in on 4K PC gaming, you can save a little bit of money on that pricey journey by buying Acer’s 27-inch 4K Predator gaming monitor today at Amazon. It’s discounted as part of a Prime Day 2020 Lightning Deal, dropping from its usual $1,200 price to $720 until tonight 11:45PM PT / 2:45AM ET. This monitor has swung down to $900 a few times, but this is the best deal yet.
Here are the specs that matter: it’s an 4K IPS panel with a 120Hz refresh rate (can be overclocked to 144Hz) and G-Sync support to take full advantage of your new RTX 3080 or 3090’s graphical power, if you were lucky enough to get one. This monitor (model XB273K Sbmiprzx) supports VESA DisplayHDR 400 and has a 4ms response time. In terms of video inputs, it has one HDMI 2.0 and one DisplayPort 1.4. It’s easy to confuse this monitor with the extremely similar $830 Gpbmiipprzx model (catchy, yeah?) that has a slightly faster response time and more video inputs. Normally, the Gpbmiipprzx model would be the better buy, but with this sale, you can get almost the same thing for $110 less.
This Acer monitor also ships with a shielding hood, which should help to block out a glare if you sit near a window.
