Black Friday is just around the corner, and while there are already a few deals on monitors out there, it's still early enough that you can grab one at a bargain.

If you've been waiting to upgrade your monitor, this is the time to do it. We have deals on both desktop monitors and curved gaming monitors. Whether you're looking for a cheap deal or something more expensive, we have what you need for any budget.

LG 27-inch IPS LED Monitor with 1080p Resolution (27MP58VQ)

The LG 27MP58VQ is one of the best-selling monitors on Amazon for its size and price point. This monitor has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, which is higher than most other monitors in this price range. It also has built-in speakers and USB ports. The only downside is that it doesn't come with built-in USB hubs as some other models do, so if you want more than two USB ports, you'll need to purchase an additional hub separately.

Acer Predator XB271HU 27-Inch 144Hz WQHD IPS Monitor

This is one of the best monitors on the market right now. It features a 2560 x 1440 resolution and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. It has Nvidia G-Sync technology, which allows you to play games without any screen tearing or lag. You can also adjust the height, tilt, and swivel of this monitor so that it's just right for your needs. This monitor also comes with built-in speakers and two HDMI ports.

Asus MG279Q 27-Inch WQHD 144Hz FreeSync Gaming Monitor

Another popular option is the Asus MG279Q monitor. It has the same resolution as the Acer Predator above (2560 x 1440) but has AMD FreeSync technology rather than Nvidia G-Sync. This means that it offers similar benefits without requiring an expensive graphics card upgrade!

Dell SE2417HG

Dell SE2417HG has been on sale for $99 since November 1, but with coupon code V361 SAVE10 you can get another $10 off (bringing it down to $89). It has TN panel technology, which means colors aren't as vibrant as other types of displays, but response times are faster. This is great for gamers who want quick response times without spending too much money. The screen itself also tilts and swivels from -5 degrees to 15 degrees, making it easy to adjust. It comes with HDMI and VGA inputs and offers a 4ms response time (1ms faster than standard).


BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P is a 24-inch monitor with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and DisplayPort 1.2 input. The XL2411P features an adjustable height stand, black eQualizer (for visibility in dark scenes without overexposing bright areas), S Switch Arc (to easily switch between saved settings), Black Frame Insertion (BFI) Mode to reduce input lag when using 120 or 144Hz refresh rate, and Color Vibrance for adjusting screen saturation to your liking.

LG 32GK850F-B 32" QHD 144Hz FreeSync gaming monitor

The LG 32GK850F-B is an awesome, affordable 144Hz monitor with AMD FreeSync and a lot of features. You can use it for gaming and work or even just to watch movies and TV shows. This is a great 1440p monitor with a lot of bang for your buck.

The LG G3 is one of the most popular smartphones ever made, so there's no surprise that LG decided to bring back the name for its latest flagship smartphone. This time around the device has been updated with a new design and some impressive specs that make it one of the best smartphones you can buy right now.


AOC has a lot of great monitors, but the G2590FX is our favorite. It comes with FreeSync technology that reduces screen tearing and stuttering. It also sports an AMD Radeon R7 240 graphics cards and a 1ms response time. The stand is adjustable and can be tilted up to 12 degrees backward and 5 degrees forward, and it also has pivot adjustment for better viewing angles.


Spending money is fun. But if you've got the cash saved up for a great gaming monitor for Black Friday, it can be doubly so. Make sure you shop early and shop smart. Don't let your competition get the jump on you, and get that monitor you're wanting all year long. Good luck.
