If you didn’t take advantage of yesterday’s deal on an LG 34-inch 3440x1440 monitor we’ve got news of another compelling deal on a different display today. Newegg’s got a 35-inch 2560x1080 curved monitor on sale today for $449 with promotional code EMCBRCR79. This is a much better price than the last time we highlighted a sale on this monitor in April for $550. The sale is scheduled to last until Thursday, October 27.

The BenQ XR3501 ultra-wide monitor features a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 4ms response time. Unfortunately the monitor doesn’t have FreeSync or G-Sync for variable refresh rates, which is something of a disappointment. Still, the immersiveness of a curved monitor is a big enough draw on its own.

This monitor features three gaming presets for race games and first-person shooters—one specifically for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It’s also got a picture-in-picture mode, a split-screen feature for using two apps at once on the large screen, and a 20-level color-vibrancy setting.

For ports, the display has two HDMI 1.4, one DisplayPort 1.2, and one Mini DisplayPort. Finally, the monitor can tilt from -5 to 15 degrees to help it better suit your gaming set-up.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
