Lenovo to launch the 280Hz Legion Y25-30 gaming monitor in May

Lenovo first announced the Legion Y25-30 gaming monitor at CES in January. Now, the 25-inch, 280Hz gaming monitor is finally heading towards release, starting with availability in the US in May. 

According to DisplaySpecifications, the upcoming Lenovo Y25-30 features a 25-inch IPS panel with FHD resolution, 1ms G2G response time (0.5ms MPRT), and 280Hz refresh rate (OC). At default, brightness is set at 400nits but increases to 430nits for HDR content. The contrast ratio wasn't mentioned, but it should be rated at 1000:1. These specifications allow the monitor to cover 99% of the sRGB colour spectrum.

Lenovo's new monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified. Moreover, it is certified by TUV Rheinland due to its low blue light mode and flicker-free tech. Like most modern gaming monitors, it should also feature Adaptive Sync, most likely AMD FreeSync.

The included stand is very versatile, as it allows you to tilt, pivot, swivel, and adjust height. Connectivity options include 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-B 3.2 Gen1 upstream port and 4x USB-A 3.2 Gen1 ports. Finally, there are two 3W built-in speakers, which might come in handy if you don't have any other audio solution.

Rumours say the Lenogo Y25-30 will release in May for $340. Unfortunately, there's no word on when this monitor will come to the UK and Europe, or how much will it cost.

KitGuru says: Do you prefer super high refresh rate monitors over something with a higher resolution display but still offering above 100Hz?
