We haven't reviewed the Acer R240HY monitor, but the Amazon user ratings speak for themselves. After 3,000 reviews, the 24-inch monitor has an average rating of 4.3 stars. That's an excellent score for a monitor that now costs less than $100. 

Highlights of the R240HY include its 1080p IPS panel, which is hard to find at this price point. Surrounding the screen are narrow bezels that will draw your eyes into vivid colors. Connectivity is solid, if a bit dated; You can connect to the R240HY via an HDMI port, a DVI input or a VGA port. The monitor also tilts from -5 to 15 degrees, so you can adjust the screen for the best sightline. 

This is an Amazon "Deal of the day," so keep in mind that the savings will disappear when the clock strikes midnight Pacific tomorrow. But if you're in the market for a new monitor and are on a tight budget, this seems like a no-brainer.
