Prism isn't the best known monitor brand going around, but in a review of the PG270 Ultra last year, our own Chris Szewczyk described the Singaporean company as "a brand that deserves attention". 

Another Prism gaming monitor, the XQ340 Pro, has some high-end specs: it's a 34 inch QLED ultrawide affair, with a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and 3440x1440 resolution. We haven't tested it, but I can't help but raise my brows at its current, limited price: as part of one of Amazon's endless seasonal promotions, you can grab it for AU$579, which is nearly half of its usual AU$1,099 RRP.

For reference, the Alienware AW3423DW has similar specs and will set you back just over AU$2,000 on a normal day. Sure, the Alienware is a safer bet (it was one of our favorite gaming monitors last year) but if you're looking to save a considerable amount of money, the Prism is worth a look.

Under AU$600 for a 34-inch QLED ultrawide monitor is worthy of consideration, even if the brand isn't too familiar. The  XQ340 Pro offers a 165Hz refresh rate and a maximum resolution of 3440x1440p. With Adaptive-Sync included, you'll also get a smoother gaming experience.

The XQ340 Pro hasn't been discounted since Boxing Day 2022, so if you're very much in the market right now, it could be worth a shot. If the specs aren't right for you, other Prism monitors are also discounted at the moment, though not by much.
