So, you’re looking for a new computer monitor. On behalf of everybody who has scrambled to buy one for a home setup in the early stages of the pandemic, welcome to the team! Fortunately, there are bargains galore across the current group of gaming displays and productivity panels.

Whatever your needs, from a crisp picture and high refresh rate for the competitive advantage, to a curved, ultra-wide blue light-reducing screen for getting stuff done, there are big discounts to be had out there.

Why buy a computer monitor if you already have a laptop? I’ll answer that with another question — why settle for that small portable display when you’re spending most of your time at home?

Don’t get me wrong, the convenience of opening up a laptop and doing something quickly when inspiration strikes is great. Whether it’s some late-night binge-watching in bed or an article idea while cooking (guilty), having a system there ready for your input is warmly welcome.

But for work and play, nothing beats plugging that laptop into a monitor for a big-screen experience. With that in mind, here are the best monitor deals you can buy today!
