1.SAMSUNG Odyssey G5

Pros & Cons

The Samsung Odyssey G5 LC27G55T is a good budget gaming monitor with a 1440p resolution. It’s better suited for a dark to moderately-lit room, as it has a high contrast ratio to produce deep blacks but doesn’t get bright enough to overcome intense glare. It has a quick response time, high refresh rate, and low input lag, resulting in a smooth and responsive gaming experience.

On top of that, it has FreeSync support and G-SYNC compatibility. Unfortunately, it has sub-par viewing angles and terrible ergonomics, so it isn’t the best choice for co-op gaming or sharing content. Also, even though it supports HDR, it has a low peak brightness and can’t display a wide color gamut.

2.LG 27GL83A-B

Pros & Cons

The LG 27GL83A-B is a great monitor for gaming. It has an extremely low input lag and an outstanding response time, resulting in clear motion with little blur behind fast-moving objects.

It supports FreeSync variable refresh rate technology (VRR), but it’s also certified by NVIDIA to support VRR from recent NVIDIA cards. On the downside, it may be difficult to place it comfortably due to its lack of swivel and limited ergonomics.

3.Dell Gaming S2721HGF

Pros & Cons

The Dell 27 looks very plain compared to its more pricey, Alienware-branded siblings like the Alienware 25 and Alienware 34. The curved screen is framed with a simple black band and a narrow black bar flush with the active display on the top and sides, with a slightly wider bottom bezel holding the Dell logo.

It mounts onto a similarly plain black stand with a hexagonal base that holds the monitor steady. The stand can slide and tilt up and down (vertical height 15.5 to 19.4 inches, vertical angle -5 to 21 degrees), but it doesn’t rotate from side to side

4.Acer Nitro XV272U

Pros & Cons

Acer’s Nitro series of gaming displays has always occupied that coveted space in the market, where you can get performance and features nearly equal to premium screens at a reasonable cost. Every category of PC component has a sweet spot where price and performance create an ideal ratio.

Of course, if you have the budget, you’ll never regret buying the very best gaming monitor money can buy. But for most, it pays to dig for the best value. A few 1080p resolution monitors even manage 360 Hz, but 170 Hz can deliver a lot of that response and low input lag for far less money.

5.Sceptre 34-inch

Pros & Cons

On looks, the Sceptre C345W has an understated aesthetic, which is expected for a business monitor. While it can be used for gaming, it lacks the bold and aggressive, angular stylings seen on competitors like the LG 34GL750-B. Instead, the monitor’s chassis is made of a dark-gray plastic supported by a circular base.

The only real nod to the gamer aesthetic is an illuminated ‘Sceptre’ logo on the circular game and a red ring in the back, which breaks the black monotony where the stand attaches to the monitor. The stand only offers tilt adjustment (15° backward and 5° forward), but you lack height and swivel adjustments you’d ordinarily find at this price range.


Best Value Curved Monitors – Curved monitors have just started to catch on, despite being widely available for a few years. As monitors have grown in size, it has become more and more difficult to maintain an accurate image across the entire screen when sitting up close. Curved monitors were one of the solutions monitor manufacturers came up with: a gentle curve brings the edges of the screen into your field of view, so the image remains accurate and uniform even if you’re sitting close to a large screen.
