This curved gaming monitor will make you a winner — score it for $103, a sweet 50% off

Updated ·2-min read

Why are gaming monitors so expensive? It sometimes feels like everything related to PC gaming is locked behind a paywall — fork over a ton of cash or relegate yourself to bottom-tier experiences. Not anymore! Sceptre's excellent curved gaming monitor is nearly 50% off right now. Pick it up for just $103 versus the normal price tag of $200 and get 24 inches of high-resolution gaming.

The 24-inch screen, 75Hz refresh rate and HDMI connectivity make this an excellent, all-around monitor.

The most amazing aspect of this monitor is that it's curved. This keeps every pixel at the same distance from your eyes, which results in a much better overall experience. It has a response time of only one millisecond, greatly cutting down on the amount of input lag. This is an important feature to keep in mind for competitive gaming — the more lag you have to deal with, the worse your performance will be.

The Sceptre monitor also has features like flicker-free technology which results in a more crisp picture, as well as tilt adjustment up to 5 degrees forward and 15 degrees backward. There are built-in speakers, too! (Although you'll get better sound quality from a headset, like one of those from our list of best headphones.)

You can connect to the monitor via an HDMI port or VGA port, and there are also audio input jacks if you want to connect higher-end speakers to the system. If you don't want to use the included stand, then you'll be happy to hear that this mount is VESA-compatible. (VESA is the standard mounting configuration used by most computer monitors.)

Whether you're using it for work or play, over 3,600 five-star Amazon reviewers say this is a great choice.

"I use mine in the office, and honestly I don't know how I ever survived without this screen," said one five-star reviewer. "The curve is not the newest tech but it makes all the difference. I don't game on it, but from what I have read it is worth it for that purpose. ... Everyone in my office is jealous of it and find excuses to borrow my computer. Overall fantastic price, fantastic product. I have seen similar ones for double the price and have the same specs if not less in some areas."

Another user backed this up: "This monitor is amazing. I was looking for something good for gaming that would act as a second monitor for my Alienware laptop. This works perfectly! Would buy again for a third monitor. Got here quick too."

Gain an edge in all competitive games thanks to the high refresh rate on this monitor. It's great for work too!
