Get on a cheap monitor with these discount deals

Even in a world increasingly moving away from desktops for laptops and 2-in-1 devices, nothing beats having a big ol' screen. Whether you're watching a movie or working on a huge project, we all need that extra bit of screen real estate that only a monitor that can offer.

Luckily for you monitors have evolved just as much as smartphones and the other devices in the world. Screens come in all sorts of different sizes, resolutions and form factors. To help you made sense of things we've narrowed down the best monitor deals according to the most common categories.

Best Full HD monitor deal

Dell UltraSharp U2414H

Factory calibrated
Fully adjustable stand
Some IPS glow issues
Only okay for gaming

The Dell UltraSharp U2414H is the bee's knees of your standard 24-inch monitor. It offers a sharp Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) picture with vivid, but accurate colors and excellent contrast. Best of all Dell calibrates every U2414H so you won't have to fuss about with the gamma, contrast or a bajillion other settings just right for the perfect picture.

Best QHD monitor deal

Omen 32-inch QHD display

Massive 32-inch screen
Slick design and base
75Hz only in FreeSync mode

If you're looking for a little more resolution in your life a QHD monitor is the way to go and the Omen 32-inch QHD display offers the best discount we've found yet. With 2,560 x 1,440 sumptuous pixels, this Omen display can make everything from movies, games and even text look that much better. The display also comes equipped with FreeSync technology to smooth out choppy gameplay, though you'll need an AMD GPU to really take advantage of it.

Best 4K monitor deal

ViewSonic XG2700-4K

Fast, pixel pushing display
144hz refresh rate
FreeSync only
Clumsy interface

We're fully entering the 4K age and finally we're starting to see some deep discounts on the Ultra HD monitors we've been pining after for so long. The 27-inch ViewSonic XG2700-4K is arguably one of the best 4K monitors out there with a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution. Its SuperClear IPS is no slouch either with the ability to produce rich colors while offering a gaming grade 144hz refresh rate and 5ms response time.

Best gaming monitor deal

Asus VG245H

Low blue-light mode
1ms response time
Serviceable color reproduction
Freesync only

Gaming is an expensive hobby but there are plenty of ways to squeeze your pennies with mid-range components, budget peripherals and, of course, great deals on monitors. The Asus VG245H one of the lowest price gaming monitors we've ever seen. It's no 1440p panel, but you do get an  75hz refresh rate, blue-light filter and thanks to being a TN panel, response times are cut to a scant 1 millisecond.

Best curved monitor deal

21:9 aspect ratio is perfect for movies
Great for multitasking
75Hz only in FreeSync mode

Curved monitors are amazing for movie buffs, however, their high prices can be intimidating. Luckily, the LG 29UM68 is a steal at its discounted price. Although it's technically just a Full HD monitor with its 2,560 x 1,080 resolution, you'll probably be too busy being immersed its visual wingspan to care. The IPS panel renders 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 media on a traditional monitor.
