This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The amazing MG278Q has hit a low price at £359, currently available at Currys. Amazon seem to have priced matched albeit with only 1 left so will probably on back order for 1-3 months soon.

I have been trying to find my perfect TN gaming panel for a while and decided this still seems to be one of the better choices in 2019. Colour accuracy is very well regarded and the image quality is very vivid. some other manufacture functions I won't go into detail but there are a few preset for colours. Probably has one of the better menu navigation systems out there if thats important to you.

This is a great buy for gamers who are after a 1440p TN monitor with nicer that average colours.


Some specs:
- 27"
- WQHD 2560x1440 resolution
- Freesynch (work with G-synch)
- 144Hz
- 1ms response time (TN panel)
- 2 DP, 1 HDMI and USB 3.0.


Manufacture info can be found on amazon amazon.co.uk/gp/…TV0

TN panel. Shame as it ticks pretty much all the other boxes.
Yeah IPS users generally wouldn't consider 'gaming monitors' irrespective of how good they are. Then again you wouldn't get the supposed 1ms response rate nor the dreaded back screen jackpot gamble also lol.
I have been trying to decide on a new monitor and honestly don't know what to buy, just want something I can use for my pc and consoles, 27" either full HD or 4k with good viewing angles, 2 and hdmi or 1 and a dp. Possibly built in speakers. Like has to be ips for the viewing anes but don't want bad back light bleed, needs to be black in the dark.
For a console you probably only need 60hz and it doesn't make use of any synch technologies. Look for a full HD (1080p) one.

If you game on the pc them you need to check it you GPU can manage higher resolution in games. Time to do eome research.

If you want IPS you compromise with a slower response rate (4ms as opposed to 1). A TN like this one gives you decent colours and I think blacks than IPS.

There's a number of things to consider and ultimately the monitor you chose should be based on your own user preference, constraints and priorities.

I would ignore any TN, VA, IPS debates, you go for what you want not what someone else thinks.

Not all are equal though. I have a 1440p 144hz TN Panel from Dell and its brilliant, very vibrant and bright.
Why is this cold?! Heat from me 🔥🔥🔥
