Newegg is selling a 2560x1440 monitor for $170 today

If you'd like to try gaming at 2560x1440, the Acer G247HYU is available for a good price right now.

Newegg has a good price on a 2560x1440 monitor right now. Until Tuesday, you can pick up the 23.8-inch Acer G7 Series G247HYU for $170. That’s close to $40 cheaper than what you’ll find on Amazon’s marketplace, and $50 cheaper than a few other retailers.

The G247HYU has an IPS display with a 4ms response time and a 60Hz refresh rate. There’s nothing fancy built-in to this monitor such as AMD FreeSync or Nvidia’s G-Sync, but for casual and beginning PC gamers it’s still a nice little monitor.

On the back it has one DVI, one HDMI, and DisplayPort. There are also two built-in speakers, and it can tilt between -5 and 15 degrees, making it easier to suit a variety of set-ups.

While you can play games on a 2560x1440 monitor like this, it’s probably not a good idea to try it with a graphics card lower than a GTX 1060 or an RX 580. That’s if you want to hit that all important sweet spot of 60 fps gaming on PCs—if you want to play on High settings in most games, at least.

Other “extras” Acer built-in to this monitor include Flicker-less Technology for reducing eye strain, and a “Zero Frame Design.” The latter basically means the sides and top of the monitor are very thin.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
