Dell is selling the Alienware 25 AW2518HF 25-inch 1080p 240Hz LED FreeSync monitor (opens in new tab) for $279.99 right now. While not the lowest price we have ever seen, it is pretty close. Plus, it's the best deal anywhere right now. The same monitor is $320 on Amazon (opens in new tab), $343 at Best Buy, and at similar prices elsewhere. This sale from Dell is very limited and almost done! It only has about 40% of the stock left. This is a huge discount over the G-Sync version (opens in new tab), which goes for $525 or more. And you don't even need that version because the one on sale today is G-Sync compatible.

The Alienware 25 uses a TN panel because these offer the fastest response times. They sacrifice the viewing angles of an IPS panel and the contrast ratio of VA, but if what you're interested in is competitive gaming, this is the way to go. It has a response time under 1ms and refresh rate of 240Hz. It also has AMD's FreeSync technology, although it is a bit disappointing the pixel resolution is only 1080p. This would be the perfect monitor in 4K.

The monitor's technical specifications include a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, a 1ms response time, and a 240Hz refresh rate. The connectivity options include two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, and four USB 3.0 ports. There's also an audio out port.

It comes with AMD's FreeSync technology, which works with your AMD graphics card to help reduce screen tearing and motion blur. If you have a Nvidia graphics card from the 10xx or 20xx series, the monitor is G-Sync compatible. Just be sure to connect to the display through the DisplayPort, which helps ensure the highest possible refresh rate, too.

Dell covers this monitor with a three-year warranty. Users give it 4.6 stars out of 5 based on 765 reviews (opens in new tab) on Amazon.
