Update: These monitor deals have been verified for the month of June, so save away!
Even in a computing scene turning down desktops more and more for laptops and 2-in-1 laptop devices, nothing beats owning a big, honkin’ display. Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a massive project, we all need that extra bit of screen real estate that only a monitor can offer.
Fortunately for you, monitors have evolved nearly as far as smartphones and other modern devices of today. Screens come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, sharpness and style. To help you make sense of it all, we’ve narrowed down the best monitor deals, according to the most common categories.
Best Full HD monitor deal
Fully adjustable stand
Some IPS glow issues
Only okay for gaming
The Dell UltraSharp U2414H is the bee’s knees of standard, 24-inch displays. It offers a sharp, Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) picture with rich, but accurate colors and deep contrast. Best of all, Dell personally calibrates every U2414H unit, so you won’t have to mess with the gamma, contrast or a ton of other settings just for a solid picture.
Best QHD monitor deal
Massive 32-inch screen
Slick design and base
75Hz only in FreeSync mode
If you’re looking for a little more clarity in your computing life, a QHD monitor is the way to go, and the Omen 32-inch QHD screen offers the best frequent deals we’ve found so far. With 2,560 x 1,440 rich pixels, this Omen display can make everything from films, games and even text look that much better. The display also comes packed with AMD’s FreeSync technology to reduce gaming frame rate drops, though you’ll need an AMD graphics card to use the feature.
Best 4K monitor deal
Fast, pixel pushing display
144hz refresh rate
We’re officially entering the 4K age, and at last we’re beginning to see some serious deals on the Ultra HD monitors we’ve been wanting for so long. The 27-inch ViewSonic XG2700-4K is arguably one of the best 4K monitors around with a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution. Its SuperClear IPS is no slacker either, with the ability to produce vibrant colors while providing a gamer-grade 144hz refresh rate and 5ms response time.
Best gaming monitor deal
Low blue-light mode
1ms response time
Serviceable color reproduction
Gaming is an expensive hobby, but there are plenty of ways to penny pinch with mid-range components, budget accessories and, of course, excellent deals on screens. The Asus VG245H is one of the most affordable gaming monitors we’ve ever tested. It’s no 1,440p panel, but you do get a 75hz refresh rate, blue-light filter and, thanks to its TN panel, response times as quick as 1 millisecond.

Best curved monitor deal
Perfect aspect ratio for movies
Great for multitasking
75Hz only in FreeSync mode
Curved monitors are the best for movie buffs, however, their price tags can be intimidating. Fortunately, the LG 29UM68 is a steal of a deal. Though it’s technically just a Full HD monitor with its 2,560 x 1,080 pixel count, you’ll likely be too busy immersed in its visual wingspan to care. The IPS panel produces 99% of the sRGB color spectrum. Plus, that 21:9 aspect ratio is just too good to pass up if you’re tired of seeing letter-boxed movies on traditional, 16:9 screens.
