Acer's 24-inch 1080p G-Sync compatible monitor has dropped back down to $180

Grab the Acer XFA240 24-inch 1080p 144Hz G-Sync compatible monitor on sale for $179.99 on Amazon. This is only $10 above the lowest we have ever seen, which is a price the monitor only hit during big events like Black Friday. It's $20 lower than the regular price of the monitor and one of the best prices around.

Has AMD FreeSync by default but also supports G-Sync in compatible graphics cards. Specs include 1080p resolutions, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. Also has 170-degree viewing angles and VESA mounting.

The screen is 24 inches and features 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution on a TN panel. TN panels don't have quite the viewing angles or the color accuracy of other panel types, but in this case it actually does pretty well. Plus, the trade off is a much less expensive price and super quick response time. So, with the Acer you'll also get a 144 Hz refresh rate and a 1 ms response time, which is definitely very quick.

The vieiwing angles go up to 170 degrees horizontally and 160 degrees vertically, which is comparable to 178 degrees from say an IPS panel. There's also VESA mounting at 100 x 100mm, which means you can take the monitor off its stand and put it on an arm mount or on your wall. Of course, the stand does have adjustable height, pivot, swivel, and tilt, so you'll still be able to find a good viewing angle that way. Other features include two 2W speakers, and a brightness of 350 nits.

Use the built-in AMD FreeSync technology to reduce screen tearing and give yourself an awesomely smooth gaming experience. The monitor is also G-Sync Compatible. That means it will work with Nvidia graphics cards as long as they are from the GTX 10xx series or RTX 20xx series. You'll want to connect via DisplayPort to take advantage of adaptive sync, and that's also essential for getting the full 144 Hz refresh rate.
