The deal is part of a Best Buy Deal of the Day featuring several ViewSonic monitors. The sale includes a couple of other monitors as small as 24 inches and as large as 43 inches. The one above just hits that sweet spot on size for monitors where the price is still not too expensive but the display is large enough to give you plenty of room to work.

The monitor includes a 2K Quad HD 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, which means plenty of pixels for you to enjoy. It also has a 60Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time. While those settings aren't ideal for a gamer, the IPS panel makes this a great screen for media watchers and creative types. It has great color accuracy and 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles.

The 27-inch screen has an anti-glare coating with LEDs that provide precise backlighting for every pixel. The screen also has two 2-watt built-in speakers for a little audio boost in stereo sound and 350 nits of brightness. The connectivity options include HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort. It even comes with a five-foot DisplayPort cable. This is covered by a three-year warranty from ViewSonic.
