The promotional image above was enough to suck me into Razer's lure, sure, but once you dig into the specification of the Raptor 27-inch gaming monitor you'll be smitten. Especially as this Black Friday deal dumps the price down by hundreds of pounds.

The Raptor 27 is the first ever gaming monitor to be THX certified, offers Nvidia G-Sync and AMD Freesync for perfectly matched frames-per-second fluidity, and delivers a 1440p resolution at 165Hz. That it's on the Microsoft Store tells you something: this would be a great Xbox or PC monitor for your gaming endeavours.

Shopping for one of the best gaming monitors on the market? If you can forego 4K resolution then this 1440p 165Hz option is a brilliantly stylish and capable package that's a great price in the sales.

As you can see from the shopping widget below, Microsoft is really trailblazing with this deal: the £549 asking price is £350 less than you'll pay at Razer's own store, and it's £250 less than Amazon is asking too. You won't find it at a better price right now.

Indeed, Microsoft's Black Friday sales have been pretty eye-opening: my favourite so far was the Xbox Series S price drop to £189 (which is almost 25% off), which made it into my 10 Best Black Friday Deals Actually Worth Buying featurette.
