Cyber Monday portable monitor deals 2023: Buying advice

Where are the best places to find portable monitor deals on Cyber Monday 2023? 

We’ll keep this page updated with the best Cyber Monday portable monitor deals from every top outlet. Bookmark this page if you’d like to keep up with all the best deals.

We also understand that people like to hunt for discounts, so we’ve included the list above. It’s our pick of the top portable monitor retailers, so you should head to these sites to check out the Cyber Monday situation.

Cyber Monday is the biggest shopping day of the entire sales season – in 2022, it generated nearly $11.3B of online revenue, while the infamous Black Friday tapped out about $9.12B of online spending.

Online shopping and electronics purchases go hand-in-hand, too, which is why techy sales account for a huge proportion of Cyber Monday spending. Indeed, experts estimate that nearly a quarter of sales spending during Cyber Monday 2023 will be on an electronic kit.

A closer examination of recent Cyber Monday sales also suggests that good things are coming for anyone who wants to save cash on a portable monitor.

That’s no surprise when online shopping as a whole is increasingly popular. Analysis suggests that in-store shopping dropped 30% between 2020 and 2021 – thanks to the pandemic – and that’s only pushed people online to look for deals. In turn, that incentivizes retailers to deliver better online offers.

Indeed, experts reckon that Cyber Monday spending will top $11B again this year with record-breaking discounts available on electronics. Given retailers’ desperation to keep people spending, we agree with those conclusions.

We’re sure you’ll find great discounts on portable monitors this sales season, and we’re also confident that the best deals will appear on Cyber Monday itself.

If you want to ensure you’re on the ball, be prepared to shop in the evening. Between 7 pm and 11 pm is the busiest on Cyber Monday, with sales peaking at 9 pm – people come home from work, browse on their phones, and buy before the deals stop.

To take advantage of that, get ready to buy in the evening and keep watching retailers that offer flash deals and hourly offers. Ensure that you’ve got your phone handy because the popularity of mobile shopping means that push notifications and social media pages will be crucial channels for last-minute discounts.

You don’t have to restrict your shopping to Cyber Monday, either. Experts have crunched the numbers to discover that electronics prices start to tumble in late October and remain low throughout November – so you can find good bargains for a long period.

How much can I save in a Cyber Monday portable monitor deal? 

We are confident that electronic items like portable monitors will receive significant discounts on Cyber Monday. Indeed, Adobe's research suggests that Cyber Monday will be the best day to buy electronics. 

Experts predict that across Cyber Monday and the entire Thanksgiving weekend, we’ll see discounts on electronic items reach around 32%. A portable monitor that costs between $150 and $300 represents a decent saving. Look out for even deeper discounts on older products and those from less-popular brands – we wouldn’t be surprised to see 40%-off deals on some products.

The popularity of Cyber Monday and the tech sector means you’re bound to find great portable monitor deals.

If you don’t want to wait, expect to find portable monitor discounts of between 15% and 20% throughout Cyber Monday and beyond.

How to find the best Cyber Monday portable monitor deals

1. Do your research

To make the most out of Cyber Monday 2023, you need to figure out which portable monitor you want to buy before the discounts start. Get that done first, and you’ll be better positioned to get the right product at the best price. 

Figure out how much you want to spend, and spend some time thinking about what features you need in your next portable monitor. You should think about their screen size, resolution, and image quality attributes – you don’t need rock-solid quality for web browsing, for instance, but you’ll have to spend more if you want stellar quality for creative workloads. 

Consider a higher refresh rate if you want a portable game monitor. Consider the connectivity methods – it’ll need the right ports and cables to attach to your laptop. It’s also important to consider whether you want a portable monitor to stand in a folio case or if you’d prefer a model that can fold out from your laptop screen. 

Don’t restrict yourself to just one portable monitor, either. Instead, pick out a handful of displays to pivot to another product if your favorite isn’t available at a good price. Consider cheaper displays or last year’s products, too, because many of those will still tick the right boxes. 

2. Prepare your shopping strategy

Don’t head to the stores blind if you want a good Cyber Monday deal on a portable monitor. Register your accounts before the big day, sign up for mailing lists to get extra discount codes, and create alerts for your preferred products to instantly notify you of price drops. 

Also, consider whether or not different retailers offer extra incentives for buying at their sites, like gifts or voucher codes, because they can make a difference when prices are similar across different sites. 

3. Be patient – but don’t be loyal 

If you don’t need to buy a portable monitor right away, then it’s worth remaining patient and buying the new product on Cyber Monday – that’s when the best deals are unveiled. 

But if you do buy, remember that you can always return that product for a refund if you spot it cheaper on a different date – make sure it’s still in its box, and you should be fine. 

Also, compare prices between different stores because you may find your favored product on sale at a far lower price on a site you hadn’t considered. 

3 best portable monitors to watch out for

Innocn 15A1F

Innocn 15A1F (Image credit: Innocn)

Innocn 15A1F

An effective all-in-one with impressively low running costs

Screen Size: 15.6" | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Weight: 0.76kg | Connectivity: USB-C power (45W), HDMI 1.4, USB-C (Display Mode) | Panel Type: OLED

1080p resolution
OLED color quality
Magnetic support arm
Supports USB-C and HDMI
Needs a carry case

The Innocn display costs less than $400, which makes it all the more impressive when you consider that it’s an OLED panel. That future-proofed technology means you get incredible colors and vibrant imagery no matter what you’re doing on this screen, so it’s ideal for media playback and creative work. 

The 15.6in panel has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, which matches rivals and should be high enough for most situations. You’ll find impressive design elsewhere, too: the 15A1F is robust and light, comes with a slick magnetic support arm, and works with both USB-C and HDMI connections. 

There are only minor downsides. There’s no audio jack here, and you’ll need a carry case to properly protect this panel on the road – especially with that sharp magnetic arm. 

Despite that, the Innocn delivers sensational OLED quality in a slim, sturdy, lightweight design. It’s capable, very easy to use, and the ideal companion for anyone who needs a second screen with high quality levels.

Asus ZenScreen MB16A

Asus ZenScreen MB16A

Thin, light, and with superb image quality

Screen Size: 15.6" | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Weight: 0.78kg | Connectivity: USB-C | Panel Type: IPS

Top-notch IPS image quality
Slim
Light chassis
Relatively expensive
Could be brighter

The Asus’ 800g weight makes this unit one of the lightest 15.6in portable displays on the market, and it pairs that svelte design with enviable build quality and good looks. If you want a portable monitor that won’t weigh you down, it’s an excellent choice. 

Elsewhere, the Asus delivers solid 1080p image quality and great viewing angles thanks to its IPS underpinnings. Its single USB-C connection makes connectivity simple. The trio of buttons allows easy adjustments, and the panel’s magnetic screen protector folds into an effective stand – even if it’s a bit fiddly to assemble. 

This screen isn’t bright enough to work particularly well outdoors, and you can certainly find 1080p portable displays for less elsewhere – but the ZenScreen is a slim, light and good-looking IPS panel for anyone who wants a stylish second screen.

AOC I1601P

AOC I1601P (Image credit: AOC)

AOC I1601P

Great value and surprisingly great image quality, too

Screen Size: 15.6" | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Weight: 0.8kg | Connectivity: USB-C (with USB-A adaptor) | Panel Type: IPS

Cheaper than most rivals
Light and portable
Good image quality
Short cable limits versatility
Menu navigation tricky

At the time of writing this AOC screen is routinely available for less $200, and we’ve occasionally spotted it for less than $150 – on that basis alone it’s a great option if you need a portable monitor at a reduced price. 

Despite the low price, the AOC’s IPS hardware delivers enough image quality to tackle everyday tasks, and the 1080p resolution keeps things reasonably crisp. The design is smart and subdued, and the panel’s weight of 800g means it won’t weigh you down. 

The cover doubles up as a stand and works well in both scenarios, and the USB-C connection means the AOC can work with most modern notebooks. 

We only have minor issues with this screen. The one-button menu navigation is slow and irritating, and the included USB-C cable is annoyingly short. The bezels could be slimmer, too, for an even better aesthetic. 

At this price, though, they’re acceptable compromises. The AOC is a top choice if you want a 15.6in portable monitor without spending huge amounts of cash, and the situation will undoubtedly improve when Cyber Monday arrives.
