Forget Amazon Prime Day, Newegg's got two great deals on FreeSync displays right now

The Alienware AW2518HF FreeSync monitor is $200 at Newegg and an Acer FreeSync Ultrawide is $300.

While everyone is going crazy over the deals at Amazon for Prime Day right now, Newegg is sneaking through the back door of the bargain basement with its FantasTech sale. There are lots of things on sale, but these two particularly juicy deals on new FreeSync gaming displays caught our eye.

Newegg’s got the Alienware AW2518HF 24.5-inch FreeSync monitor for $300 with the checkout code EMCPWEW28

This monitor features 1080p resolution on a TN panel, a 240Hz refresh rate, 1 millisecond response time, and AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate technology. For those with compatible AMD graphics cards can sync with the monitor to produce a smoother gaming experience with less stutter. For ports it’s got two HDMI, one DisplayPort, and three USB 3.0 ports. Dell recently had this monitor on sale for a little more than what Newegg is currently offering.

The second monitor is the Acer CB351C for $200 with the coupon code EMCPWEW26 at checkout. This is a 35-inch ultrawide IPS display with 2560-by-1080 resolution, 4ms response time, and a 60Hz refresh rate. It also has FreeSync for that buttery smooth gaming experience. It’s not curved, but it does swivel and is height adjustable. For ports, you’ve got DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB 3.0, and audio out.

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.

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.
