Acer's 24-inch curved gaming monitor has dropped to a new low of $142

The Acer ED242QR 23.6-inch curved gaming monitor (opens in new tab) is down to $141.99 on Amazon. The monitor sells as high as $200, but it has dropped to $150 in the past. This deal is a little better than those drops and an all-new low for the already pretty affordable screen. This deal is even better than what we saw on Black Friday.

The curved widescreen has 1080p resolutions, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and a 4 ms response time on a VA panel. The curved screen is great not only for immersing yourself in the media you're watching or the game you're playing but also for a workstation featuring multiple monitors. You can line up the curves and create a battlestation of screens directly in front of you. The refresh rate as high as 144 Hz is important, too, because it gives you the smoothest motion when playing high-octane video games.

The monitor also has AMD FreeSync technology. This helps reduce screen tearing and improves your games just that much more. The connectivity options include a DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI. You'll want to use HDMI or DisplayPort if you want to get the most out of this monitor with FreeSync and the high refresh rate, and the monitor comes with a DisplayPort cable to make that easier for you.
