Newegg is selling a 2560x1440 monitor for $170 today

If you'd like to try gaming at 2560x1440, the Acer G247HYU is available for a good price right now.

Newegg has a good price on a 2560x1440 monitor right now. Until Tuesday, you can pick up the 23.8-inch Acer G7 Series G247HYU for $170. That’s close to $40 cheaper than what you’ll find on Amazon’s marketplace, and $50 cheaper than a few other retailers.

The G247HYU has an IPS display with a 4ms response time and a 60Hz refresh rate. There’s nothing fancy built-in to this monitor such as AMD FreeSync or Nvidia’s G-Sync, but for casual and beginning PC gamers it’s still a nice little monitor.

On the back it has one DVI, one HDMI, and DisplayPort. There are also two built-in speakers, and it can tilt between -5 and 15 degrees, making it easier to suit a variety of set-ups.

While you can play games on a 2560x1440 monitor like this, it’s probably not a good idea to try it with a graphics card lower than a GTX 1060 or an RX 580. That’s if you want to hit that all important sweet spot of 60 fps gaming on PCs—if you want to play on High settings in most games, at least.

Other “extras” Acer built-in to this monitor include Flicker-less Technology for reducing eye strain, and a “Zero Frame Design.” The latter basically means the sides and top of the monitor are very thin.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
