If you're in the market for a new gaming monitor, MWave's current Easter Sale has some pretty good deals. Chief among them, for our money, is the Aussie retailer's current price on the Gigabyte G27Q gaming monitor. That QHD display has a 144Hz refresh rate, HDR, and FreeSync Premium—the latter feature won it the title of our favourite FreeSync gaming display in our best gaming monitors round-up.

The 27-inch affair normally goes for a very reasonable AU$479, but until April 30 it's available for a mere AU$399. Add the AU$5.99 flat rate shipping, and the total ends up being AU$405.

We rewarded the G27Q a very respectable 88 / 100 in our 2020 review, praising it for its "fantastic picture quality" and "excellent gaming performance" while acknowledging that it's not the most aesthetically mindblowing monitor going around. For some people, that's likely to be a benefit.

That's not the only Gigabyte display going cheap, by the way. The Gigabyte G27QC-A is down to AU$349 from its usual AU$429. That QHD display has a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and a big ol' curve in it.

At the other end of the price spectrum, the Gigabyte AORUS FI32U is a 31.5 inch 4K screen with a 144Hz refresh rate, HDR400, and "audiophile sound" via its Audio ESS SABRE HiFi support. That's down to AU$1,099, from its usual AU$1,399.

A tempting AU$80 off our favourite FreeSync gaming monitor. It's an IPS 1440p affair with HDR, and while it may not be the most striking monitor out there, it gets the job done with a brilliant panel. Also has HDR.
