G-Sync monitors aren't cheap. The most affordable ones are usually listed in the $600-700 price range. That's why we're interrupting our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this early deal of the week: a full-fledged G-Sync monitor for just $479.99.
Newegg currently lists the Acer XB270H Abprz for $549.99, and it lets you take another $70 off by entering the promo code "STARTANEW27" (sans quotes) on the checkout page. Free shipping is available, and there are no mail-in rebates or other strings attached.
The Acer XB270H Abprz has a 27" TN panel with a 1920x1080 resolution, 144Hz maximum refresh rate, 1-ms response time, 300 cd/m² brightness, and 1000:1 contrast. Other perks include a built-in USB 3.0 hub, VESA mounting holes, and a stand with pivot and tilt capabilities.
Of course, thanks to G-Sync, the monitor can also sync its refresh rate with in-game frame rate in order to provide silky-smooth, tear-free animation—so long as you're playing on a supported GeForce graphics card. If you're new to the whole G-Sync thing, be sure to check out our first look at the technology. (Thanks to TR reader John for the tip.)
