The LG 27GL83A-B 27-inch 1440p screen is a fantastic monitor, and I should know because I’m typing this post while staring at it. Today you can get it for $299.99 at Amazon. This isn’t the lowest price ever on this monitor. It actually dropped to $285 for Prime Day earlier this summer, but other than that today’s price is the best we’ve ever seen. It normally sells for around $380, and it has only dropped this low one other time. You can’t find this price anywhere else, either, as it’s going for as much as $400 at other retailers like Newegg.

You get 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 1ms response time despite the amazing color of the IPS panel, and a 144Hz refresh rate. The connectivity includes DisplayPort and HDMI. Plus it is wall and arm mountable so you can remove it from the stand.

This is my personal recommendation for the best “bang for your buck” gaming monitor. You get all the stats a gamer should love, including a 144Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time, and 1440p pixel resolution. Plus it uses an IPS panel while still getting that response time, which means you get great viewing angles and color accuracy.

While the monitor has native AMD FreeSync, it is also Nvidia G-Sync compatible. Just connect via DisplayPort to use the G-Sync, which is what you’ll need to use to get up to 144Hz refresh rate anyway. It works great.

The monitor has a very adjustable stand, but it also uses the VESA 100 x 100mm standard. That means you can just attach it to a wall or arm mount instead and forego the stand altogether. With the virtually borderless design, these monitors look good stacked next to each other. I use this mounting arm with two of the screens for my personal build.
