The monitor was first announced back in January, but today is the first day you can snag one for yourself. The nine-month wait between its initial announcement and release hasn't brought much in the way of changes, though, for better or worse.

It still has ultra-thin bezels, fancy RGB lighting, and support for Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. One of the more gamer-friendly features present in the Raptor 27 can be found in its stand -- it can be tilted back at a 90-degree angle, which gives you much easier access to its connectivity ports.

In terms of concrete specs, the Raptor 27 is, as the name suggests, a 27" device. It has a 2560x1440p, IPS panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz, and a response time of 1-7ms, depending on your monitor settings. The Raptor 27 has an HDR400 certification, with 420 nits of brightness and a contrast ratio of 1000:1.

Unlike other monitors, Razer also says the Raptor 27 has a built-in CNC cable management system, which runs through the back of the stand. Speaking of cords and connectivity, the Raptor 27 has one HDMI 2.0b port, a USB C port, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and a headphone jack.

If all of that sounds like your cup of tea, you can snag the Raptor 27 from Razer's website (or your retailer of choice) for $699.

You can get a 1440p 144 hz monitor for half that price
The only downside being that you might get a TN panel instead of an ips panel

For $107 more you can get the acer predator ips 4k 144hz 27 inch 400 nits hdr display XB273K at microcenter after 5% insider discount.

Remember you can get obsolete tech at a premium as long as it has RGB!
Even TVs can achieve 120hz 1440p oled now at up to 2000 nits competitive input lag/ response times.
