Feature: A FreeSync 2 HDR monitor that can be enjoyed by all

AOC Agon AG273QX review: Finally, a perfect 1440p, HDR monitor

I love a great 1920x1080 gaming monitor as much as the next person, but personally, I've always been more of a 2560x1440 kinda gal. The problem is, my current best gaming monitor recommendation for 1440p is the increasingly scarce MSI Optix MPG27CQ, and I've been desperately trying to find a replacement for it all year. BenQ's EX3203R came close, but was let down by its…

AOC’s 24G2U is another best budget gaming monitor champion

AOC's C24G1 is an excellent gaming monitor for those on a budget, but for those of you who prefer flat screens as opposed to curved ones, then the AOC 24G2U is definitely the monitor for you. This 24in, 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync screen shares many of the same specs as the C24G1, but comes with a flat, even more accurate IPS panel instead of a…

Acer’s 4K G-Sync monitor is down to $470 right now, but it’s going fast

Never fear if you missed the mad Dell Cyber Monday monitor deal earlier, as your deals herald has gone and found another stonking savings. This time, it's on the Acer Predator XB271HK, which is now down to $470, which is the cheapest this 4K 60Hz Nvidia G-Sync monitor has ever been.

Grab this bargain-tastic 144Hz G-Sync Compatible monitor for just $99

Deals hunters, the best Cyber Monday gaming monitor deal has arrived, as Dell has just slashed $200 off its 144Hz, G-Sync-enabled S2419HGF display, taking its price down to a mere $99. That's the cheapest price I've ever seen for a 24in, 144Hz, G-Sync Compatible monitor, so fill your boots, monitor deals fans, because I doubt this bargain will be around for long.

Feature: Getting in sync

Every G-Sync Compatible monitor confirmed so far and how to enable G-Sync on a FreeSync monitor

Nvidia's list of G-Sync Compatible monitors grows larger with every passing month, and there are now even a handful of 2019 LG TVs that now support their variable refresh rate technology. What's more, with [block id="605515" title="Black Friday"] getting closer and closer, there couldn't be a better time to pick up a gaming monitor on the cheap that can make use of Nvidia's super smooth…

Amazon’s Alienware Black Friday monitor deals are cheaper than Dell’s

Dell's Black Friday deals started earlier today, but Amazon have already gazumped them on Alienware's ultrawide AW3418DW monitor. This curved 34in, 3440x1440, 120Hz IPS Nvidia G-Sync panel is down to £850 over on Dell's website right now, offering a saving of just over £320 off its normal £1170 price. Amazon, however, have got it for £849, the cheeky so-and-sos.

Feature: But it's not great value for money

Acer’s Predator XN253Q is a perfectly okay 144Hz Nvidia G-Sync screen

Ever since Nvidia introduced their G-Sync Compatible driver so that cheap AMD FreeSync screens could play nice with Nvidia graphics cards, full-fat G-Sync monitors have had to work a heck of a lot harder to earn their keep. After all, why pay almost double the money to get smooth, tear-free gaming on a proper G-Sync monitor when you can get pretty much the same experience…

Samsung’s titanic CRG9 is an absolute unit, but there’s still, somehow, room in my heart for it

The Samsung CRG9 is easily the most preposterous gaming monitor I've ever laid eyes on. It's not the sheer size of it that boggles the mind. Oh no. A diagonal of 49in and an aspect ratio of 32:9 is nothing after last year's equally large and equally wide CHG90 monitor. It's the resolution of the damn thing, which stands at a mad 5120x1440. That's the…

Loads of gaming monitors are going cheap right now in these definitely not Black Friday deals

Another day, another sack load of early, but definitely not Black Friday deals, this time on a bunch of gaming monitors. As with yesterday's Samsung SSD deals, it's entirely possible you'll find better savings come next week when Black Friday proper really kicks into gear, but with plenty of all-time low prices on screens from LG, Samsung, MSI and Asus, there are still plenty of…

I now refuse to play Red Dead Redemption 2 at anything less than 5120×1440

We all know Red Dead Redemption 2 is a gorgeous looking game (at least when it's not crashing and freezing), but holy moly does it look stupidly good in ultrawide. Specifically, the kind of ultrawide made possible by Samsung's new CRG9 monitor, which is an even higher specced version of last year's ludicrous 49in, 32:9 CHG90. Whereas the CHG90 had a resolution of 3840x1080 (making…

Feature: 144Hz and AMD FreeSync for under £200 / $200

AOC’s C24G1 is the new successor to the best budget gaming monitor throne

For years, the AOC G2460PF has been sitting atop our [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] list unchallenged and undefeated. With its sub-£200 / $200 price, 144Hz refresh rate and superb TN panel, it's by far one of the best screens around for those on a budget. The only problem is that it's getting on a bit now, and is becoming increasingly difficult to track down.…

Acer’s Thronos is an envoy from a hellish future where gaming chairs have enslaved humanity

I wish I was joking about the Acer Thronos, but this hulking all-in-one gaming-chair-come-war-machine absolutely terrifies me. I know gaming chairs are all the rage right now. Heck, you, reader, might even be sitting in one right now. But this is something else. It looks like a legit naval gun turret with a malign consciousness, and it fills me with terrible dread. Yes, its trio…

Acer Nitro XV273K review: 4K, 144Hz and it’s G-Sync Compatible

Nvidia's G-Sync Ultimate monitors may be some of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s I've ever laid eyes on, but good gravy do they cost an arm and a leg, with both Acer's Predator X27 and Asus' ROG Swift PG27UQ still going for around two grand a pop. The Acer Nitro XV273K might just be the next best thing, though. It's not a G-Sync Ultimate…

Feature: But the XG32VQR is a great 1440p gaming monitor regardless

Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR review: HDR is still a pain in the ass

As 2560x1440 gaming monitors go, the 32in Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR is probably one of the better screens you can buy today. I'd even go as far as saying it's potential [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"] material if ever suddenly became a lot cheaper than our current 1440p recommendation, the MSI Optix MPG27CQ, but even at its current price of £489 / $550, the XG32VQR…
