Whether you want to add a second monitor or are thinking of upgrading an old display, you’ll find some great deals right here.
Unlike some products, monitor deals tend to be quite short-lived so if you see something that suits, don't hang about. If you hesitate even for a few days, you'll probably return to find the discount has ended. It's also quite difficult to find big discounts because the profit margin on monitors isn't huge. So when you see hundreds slashed off the original price, the original price is probably inflated over the real-world price that the product usually sells at.
In any case, a new monitor will probably have better colour accuracy, better contrast and viewing angles and typically a higher resolution than your old one, so it's a great upgrade for your PC or laptop.

Best monitor discounts: what to look for
You’ll need to decide two things first: your budget and what size screen you’d like. You should measure your desk and the available space. And if you’re going for one the ultra-wide 21:9 models, be sure to check the width on the manufacturer’s website as they can take up a lot of horizontal space.
With that decided, consider what you will use the monitor for. This will determine which screen technology you should choose. For example, if the monitor for gaming you’ll want a TN or VA panel for the fastest response times. But some IPS displays can also be suitable if you don’t plan to play first person shooters where response time is so important.
IPS and VA generally have accurate colours and good contrast ratios, but IPS has the best viewing angles.
It’s possible to find budget IPS screens, and we recommend you seek these out rather than a TN-based monitor because image quality should be much better. Of course, you should also read monitor reviews as well, and never judge a screen purely on specifications.
Other factors to bear in mind include whether you need your new monitor tadro have a VESA mount for wall or multi-monitor stand mounting and whether you want it to be able to rotate to a portrait orientation as not all do. Similarly, look for height adjustment to avoid having to put the monitor on an extra stand (or pile of books) to get it to the right height.
Finally look at the ports and connections and make sure the monitor has the inputs you require. If you’re buying a 4K monitor, you’ll need a DisplayPort output on your laptop or PC as most HDMI outputs won’t be up to the task. However, if you have a recent PC or laptop it might just have the HDMI 2.0 port required.
