Deals of the week: Displays, displays, displays, and more
Is your display looking a bit tired and yellow with age? Been on the fence about upgrading to a shiny, new panel? This week's deals may push you over the edge. We've also found a couple other bargains worthy of consideration if you're already set on the display front.
- Newegg is selling Acer's K272HUL bmiidp 27" display for $50 off at $299.99. This monitor is our entry-level 27" display of choice for our peripheral staff picks. It packs a 2560x1440 IPS panel with DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA inputs. The stand is tilt-only, but Acer includes VESA mounting provisions if a more adjustable stand or arm is needed. Acer is also offering a $50 rebate card on top of Newegg's discount, which could make this monitor an even better deal if the company honors it.
- For those who want assurance of accurate color right out of the box, Adorama has Dell's U2715H 27" monitor for $439.99 with promo code 10172015AA, or $60 off. This monitor has a 2560x1440 IPS display, and Dell claims that it calibrates each U2715H to a delta-E of less than three at the factory. The U2715H also comes with a fully-adjustable stand, an integrated USB 3.0 hub, mini-DisplayPort and DisplayPort inputs, and twin HDMI ports, and its thin bezel could be especially well-suited to multi-monitor setups.
- Fancy something curvier? Adorama also has Dell's U3415W 34" ultra-wide display for $699.99 after promo code 10172015AA, or $70 off. Its 3440x1440 IPS panel provides a sweeping vista. Like its U2715H cousin, the U3415W comes factory-calibrated. It's got HDMI, mini-DisplayPort, and DisplayPort inputs, a DisplayPort output for daisy-chaining, an integrated USB 3.0 hub, and a pair of built-in speakers.
- High-resolution displays demand beefy graphics cards, and Zotac's GeForce GTX 970 has enough power to drive them. For just $289.99, this card has a nice-looking twin-fan cooler and moderately-overclocked 1076MHz base and 1216MHz boost clocks. The GTX 970 remains a staple of our System Guides, and that $289.99 price is among the lowest we've seen.
- Building a new PC with Windows 10? If you can stomach digital delivery, Newegg has the retail version of Windows 10 Home for $15 off with promo code EMCAXKV48. The retail version includes both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows, and it includes perks like license transfer rights that OEM versions don't.
Those are the best deals we could find this week. If we missed one, be sure to share with other TR readers in the comments.
