The best computer monitor deals of the summer are upon us thanks to Black Friday in July deals. Additionally, several retailers currently offer back to school sales with solid discounts on today's best displays. 

Whether you're bargain hunting for a computer monitor or the best 4K monitor for PS5 or Xbox One X, we've got your back. We're rounding up the best monitor deals you can get from several retailers right now. 

The right computer monitor can help your day-to-day productivity soar and enhance your viewing experience. You can mirror or extend your laptop screen, build a dual monitor setup or even a multi-monitor setup for gaming. 

But before you select the best monitor for your needs, there's something you should know. There are lots of specs to consider when you're choosing the right monitor for your PC. Besides display size, resolution, refresh rate, and response time, you'll also have to think about price versus performance.

Computer monitor deals buying guide 2021

  • We recommend a 27-inch monitor size. However, go for the largest display that will fit your workspace and your budget. 27 inches is very large, so pull out a ruler and do some measuring. 
  • Buy a 4K monitor if you can afford to splurge. Although 1080p monitors offer a great viewing experience, 2160p content is becoming the new norm. If you have room in your budget to spend upwards of $250, go for the 1440p or 4K monitor. 
  • Widescreen multimedia monitors are for everything. If cinematic viewing, immersive PC gaming and maximum productivity are priority, go for a widescreen monitor. They come in flat and curved designs with life-like FHD or 4K resolution. 
  • Generally speaking, 60Hz and up is a good refresh rate. The refresh rate is the number of times a monitor refreshes the screen per second. A standard 60Hz monitor refreshes the screen 60 times per second whereas a 120Hz monitor refreshes twice as many times. Competitive gamers will benefit from the smoother gaming performance of 144Hz and up. 
  • Most monitors have a response time of 5ms. Response time is the time it takes the monitor to shift from one color to another. Gamers will want to get the lowest response time (1ms is ideal). 

No matter your budget, you'll want to get the best value for your hard earned cash — and that's where we come in. Whether it's 27-inch monitor deals, 32-inch monitor deals or 4K monitor deals you're after, we've got you covered. 

From cheap computer monitors to the best monitors for gaming, here are the best monitor deals you can get.
