A trio of gaming monitors are part of a massive Samsung sale on Amazon UK today, including a 27-inch 2560×1440 144Hz model for only £240. That’s the same price that we saw during last Black Friday, and it’s a heck of a deal. Here’s what you need to know.
The first monitor in question is the Samsung LC27JG50, a model built around a curved 27-inch VA panel. That provides excellent contrast – at the expense of viewing angles – and reasonable pixel response times. The 1440p resolution and 144Hz refresh rate mean that this monitor sits right in the current sweet spot for PC gaming, with more pixels delivered to your eyeballs more quickly than on a standard 1080p 60Hz display. If you’ve not tried a high refresh rate display yet, this is an excellent introduction at its reduced price of £240, down from £300.
There’s also a 32-inch model of the same monitor, the Samsung LC32JG50, which costs only a touch more. It’s £270 in today’s sale, down from £335. You’d normally expect to pay a lot more for upgrading from 27 to 32 inches, so it’s well worth the extra money if you prefer larger displays.
