Black Friday is just around the corner, but you can already get great deals on monitors now.

If you look around, the LG 34-inch GK950G curved gaming monitor has some significant price cuts. The monitor features a 21:9 aspect ratio, which provides an ultrawide view. Gamers can immerse themselves in their game without too much distraction. The curved display also gives crystal-clear images from almost every angle.

The LG 34GK950G already features an IPS panel, which is better compared to the twisted nematic and vertical alignment. The downside is IPS can also be expensive, which explains the price point for this monitor.

While IPS trumps both VA and TN in display quality and viewing angle, gamers still prefer the TN panel. It is because most IPS LED do not feature a high refresh rate. However, the LG LG 34GK950G has a 120Hz refresh rate if you overclock. A 120Hz refresh rate is capable of 120 frames per second, which is sufficient to avoid tearing in most gaming titles.

With the IPS display, however, you will see colors as you have never seen before. A standard TN panel, for instance, will only feature a 6-bit color depth (RGB), which limits the color spectrum to 262,144 production potentials. In contrast, the IPS is 8-bit, which can produce 16.7 million hues.

IPS is always compared to the AMOLED panel, but the latter’s display tends to have strongly saturated colors.

The LG GK950G is also equipped with NVIDIA G-Sync technology, touted to provide the best gaming experience. If you have GeForce graphics, it is the perfect monitor for you because the display refresh rates are already synchronized. What that means is you avoid screen tearing, input lag, and screen stutters. Couple that with a response time of 1ms or less, and the LG QHD monitor will level up your experience.

The 1440p monitor is designed for high-performance gaming. For example, the Black Stabilizer feature will automatically adjust very dark scenes. You can immediately spot the enemy trying to ambush you in the shadows. The sRGB technology provides accurate colors, so you enjoy the game the way it is meant to be enjoyed. For instance, the monitor covers 98% of the DPI-P3 color spectrum for life-like color accuracy.

The only knock on the LG GK950G is the price. Buying one will typically set back a consumer more than a thousand bucks. But ahead of Black Friday, and with a little bit of research, you can get the monitor of your dreams.
