As mentioned above, Dell’s SE2717HR is a 27-inch display with a 1080p IPS panel. I actually own two of these displays that I use everyday in a multi-monitor setup for work, and I can report they perform quite well. This display features 6-bit+FRC technology to simulate 8-bit color support. Although the color accuracy is inadequate for professionally editing images, images on screen look clear and vibrant.
Although the SE2717HR was primarily designed for office use, it can also be used as a budget gaming display. The display supports a 75Hz refresh rate, which makes movement look slightly more fluid when compared to the standard 60Hz displays that dominate the market. Dell also added support for AMD’s FreeSync technology to smooth out image refresh rate, which helps to prevent image tearing and ghosting. Although it can’t compete with a true gaming display, these features still make for an enjoyable gaming experience.
Right now you can get these displays from PCMag with a substantial discount that drops the price from $189.99 to $129.99. The displays also come with free shipping. Priced this low, they could sell out at any moment, so if you're in the market, you should probably get on this deal quick.
