There are a lot of budget monitors out there for those not looking to spend a lot of money, but if you’re on the other end of the spectrum, looking for the best out there with no price limits, then there’s an excellent deal at Microsoft right now. The 43.4-inch Lenovo Legion Y44w-10 ultrawide monitor is only $799 right now, down from its regular price of $1,199. That’s $400 off, one heck of a deal for an excellent ultrawide display.
If you order now, the Lenovo Legion ultrawide monitor can arrive as soon as August 3 if you order with express shipping. Otherwise, it comes with free two-to-three day shipping, which may take longer due to current conditions with the pandemic.
This particular Lenovo Legion boasts a 3840×1200 resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 6ms response time that can be overclocked to 4ms. On the back, you’ll find two HDMI 2.0 ports, two USB-C ports, one DisplayPort port, and four USB 3.1 ports. It’s also equipped with FreeSync technology that’s compatible with G-Sync, making it possible to take advantage of variable frame rates no matter what your GPU is.
Ultrawide monitors are great to game on, providing an incredible experience that can only be found on PC. However, not every game supports ultrawide monitors. In those cases, you’re left with black bars on both sides of your gameplay. Thankfully, Steam has an excellent group for ultrawide monitor users that lists all of the games that support the 21:9 aspect ratio. It’s definitely worth checking before you make your purchase.
