We find gaming PC deals pretty much every week, and we’re even happier when we get to spotlight a handful of exceptional gaming monitors to go along with your new PC purchase. Monitor deals are some of our favorites, and we found one for the history books: For a limited time, you’ll be able to take home the LG 48-inch UltraGear OLED Monitor for just $700 when you purchase through LG. At full price, this amazing display once cost $1,500, so you can consider this an $800 markdown!

Why you should buy the LG 48-inch OLED monitor

Perhaps we should start with a tiny breakdown of OLED technology: The acronym stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, which refers to an OLED’s self-emissive pixel makeup. Unlike the zoned layouts of LED backlighting, individual OLED pixels can be powered on or off. This delivers some of the most accurate colors and contrast, as well as deep, inky black levels. Such is the case with the LG UltraGear, which also delivers 4K resolution, pushes a 120Hz refresh rate, and is capable of 0.1ms response times. Any discerning PC gamer will tell you that those are some rock-solid specs!

A monitor that once cost $1,500 should definitely have HDMI 2.1 connectivity, and the UltraGear does not disappoint. The 2.1 certification guarantees bigger and faster data transfer speeds, both for in-game performance and traditional file uploads and downloads. HDMI 2.1 also allows for features like Variable Refresh Rate, Automatic Low Latency Mode, and gaming optimizations like G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium; both of which are supported by the LG UltraGear.

This awesome LG monitor is equipped with a 20W speaker system too. And while it’s only two channels, you’ll be surprised how much audio the stereo configuration can push. You’ll also be glad to learn that the UltraGear comes with a two-year limited warranty from LG. 

We come across OLED TV deals all the time, but this monitor offering is one we just had to shine an extra-bright light on. Again, for a limited time, purchase the LG 48-inch UltraGear OLED Monitor from LG and save $800!
