LG has just released a new 27" 4K IPS monitor, and despite adding a critical feature, the price is even lower than previous 4K IPS models: $400. And for one day only, you can get an even better deal - grab the LG 27UD58P-B IPS 4K UHD Free-Sync Gaming Monitor for just $350 shipped from Newegg.

What's the critical feature, you may ask? A fully height-adjustable stand, which the previous $450 model lacked!

The TBG Forum, after 3 years of existence, has just hit 500 members! Thanks to all of you for making this a helpful and friendly resource for tech enthusiasts the world over. The Forum actually has about 5,000 visitors monthly, and all the great questions our members ask inform people who have the very same questions but are afraid to ask, so keep up the good work, members!

We happen to have a Rise of the Tomb Raider "Season Pass" left over from our 2016 Holiday drawing, and we're happy to give it to the first member to claim it in this thread!

Hot Deals / Acer Predator X34 Curved UltraWide Monitor - $1,079.99!
« on: January 22, 2017, 09:30:46 AM »
January isn't exactly the best time to find huge tech deals, and this one just came out of nowhere. The awesome Acer Predator X34 Curved UltraWide Monitor is now just $1,079.99 at Amazon, down from the $1,249.99 it typically sells for!

Many TBG readers have picked up this monitor over the past 6 months or so, and the feedback has been nothing but positive. You get Nvidia G-Sync, refresh rates up to 100Hz, and a huge 34" curved 3440x1440 IPS-type panel. It really can't be beat if gaming is your thing!
