Talk about a week of killer deals. First, it was a feather-light Microsoft Surface Pro X tablet that retailed for $549. Now it’s the Acer Predator XB3 gaming monitor and it’s on sale on eBay for just $219.99. That’s a $170 savings that’s nothing to sneeze at. The specs on this 1440p monitor are truly phenomenal for the price, so let’s get down to business.
The 27-inch Predator XB3 has a resolution of 2560×1440, a refresh rate of 165Hz, an aspect ratio of 16.9 and a response time of 1ms. This means crisp and responsive visuals await you. It is designed with more dynamic games in mind, where the smallest fraction of a second means victory or defeat in a match. This monitor also has an average user rating of 4.5 at Best Buy based on 216 reviews. People love it.
One thing you should be aware of is that this is such an absolute steal because it is a certified refurbished device. But don’t let this information fool you, as the monitor comes directly from Acer on Ebay. In accordance with Ebay’s repair policy, “All items are tested by qualified repairers and function properly” and this display works just like a new one. Ebay also provides a two-year warranty that covers repairs and replacements. In other words, you get a nearly new Predator XB3 monitor with a multi-year warranty and 44% off the regular price.
Yes, this is a fantastic deal. Although you’d better fly in now. At the time of this writing, 1,329 units have been sold and only a limited number are available.
