Entry level and up.
A new monitor is a truly wonderful thing. Gone are the days of bulky CRT monitors, and if you never experienced a time when 90% of your desk space was devoted to a heavy monitor, count yourself lucky. While you can’t degauss modern computer displays, they’re sleeker, cheaper, and better than ever.
Here are some selections on sale right now, from curved to cheap to one of the best monitors, period. Do yourself a favor and get rid of that old dusty monitor you’re suffering with now. Your eyeballs will thank you.
Samsung CF398 Series Curved 27-Inch FHD Monitor
Samsung CF398 Series Curved 27-Inch FHD Monitor for $187
Curved gaming monitors are great. I am being completely serious here. There’s something about that subtle curve that really pulls you in. It fills the edges of your vision in a way you didn’t even know you needed in your life, until you try one for yourself. It’s hard to go back, to be honest. Samsung’s curved monitors are excellent and this one’s on sale right now. Add it to your cart to see the price.
Sceptre 24-inch LED Full HD 1080p Monitor
Sceptre 24-inch LED Full HD 1080p Monitor for $94.99
Looking for a new monitor on the cheap? Sceptre’s 24-inch LED monitor is less than a hundred bucks. The bezel isn’t the thinnest, but it’s thin enough to make this a great, low-cost choice for a multi-monitor set up.
HP 27-inch LED-Backlit IPS Monitor
HP 27-inch LED-Backlit IPS Monitor for $159
This 27-inch HP is another great choice for a multi-monitor set-up, especially at the price. It’s response time doesn’t make it the greatest for fast-paced competitive shooters, but for basically every other type of gaming or PC use, it’s a really nice get at a good price.
LG 34-inch Curved FreeSync Monitor
LG 34-inch Curved FreeSync Monitor for $509
OK, now we’re talking. This is a beastly ultra-wide monitor with FreeSync, so if you’re running an AMD graphics card, you can kiss that screen tearing goodbye. So long, screen tearing! Smell you later. It also has a 144Hz refresh rate and an aggressive styling, making this a sweet monitor for your gaming rig, even if you have an Nvidia graphics card.
