The Best Computer Monitor Deals for January 2023

Whether you’re back at the office or using a basic laptop at home, a good monitor is a must for any work setup. If you need a larger main display, a budget-friendly second screen, or a touch display, here are a few ways to do that while saving a few bucks. And if gifting is your intent, keep your recipient in mind: Are they a gamer? Do they have a frequently utilized home office? We’ve got budget monitors to suit more casual usage as well.

If you haven’t sized up monitors in a while, screen size is probably the most important factor—fitting a screen to the size of your workstation is an important place to start. Beyond that, most of us can get by with a full HD screen (splurge on a 4K panel if you want to future-proof). 

Today’s average screen brightness is about 300 nits, but if you’re working in a bright space or in sunlight, finding a panel with 400-500 nits would be worth the extra spend. Similarly, higher refresh speeds mean sharper images, so gamers will want at minimum a 75Hz screen, with 144Hz probably being the true minimum to look for.

(If your PC has an HDMI-out, consider one of these discounted TVs as a monitor. They’ll provide streaming capabilities when you’re not at work.)
