With ViewSonic's monitor you get 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, an ultra-fast 1 ms response time, and an awesome 144 Hz refresh rate. That makes it ideal for gamers. It also uses AMD FreeSync technology to reduce screen tearing during high-paced action and smooth out those frame rates. It might also be G-Sync compatible, but that information is not available yet. The IPS panel gives you 178-degree viewing angles so you can get a good view of what's on the screen no matter where you're watching from.

Some of the built-in tech includes flicker-free technology and a blue light filter to help reduce eye fatigue during long sessions. It also has pre-set visual modes that are customizable for whatever type of game you're playing.

Connectivity options include two HDMI ports and one DisplayPort. ViewSonic covers it with a three-year warranty.

The key to this screen is that it's an IPS panel with large viewing angles and good color accuracy. But at the same time it has a 1 ms response time, which is unusual for these panel types. Include a price that's under $300 and you've got a very unique product. Similar monitors (opens in new tab) go for as much as $500 or more and even then still don't have 1 ms response times. Only monitors with TN panels (opens in new tab) can reach this price with these specifications generally, but TN panels are less expensive because they're less accurate with strict viewing angles.
