The AOC Q3279VWFD8 may look unassuming but if you’re after a big-screen monitor deal this Cyber Monday, this 31.5-inch IPS panel is tough to beat. The AOC  Q3279VWFD8 is on sale for $169.99 at Best Buy, down from $329.99. It sports 2K/QHD resolution, a 75Hz refresh rate, and AMD FreeSync support.

Connectivity is ample, with HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort and VGA ports. There’s no mention of speakers, so you’ll have to bring your own. But built-in monitor speakers are almost always bad anyway.

At 48% off, this 32-inch screen from AOC packs 2460x1440 resolution, 75Hz refresh and AMD FreeSync support. If you’re looking to go big on a budget, this monitor is tough to beat. 

AOC lists the response time of this monitor at 5ms, which means it might not be the best option for serious competitive MOBA and FPS gamers. But really, if your skills are that good, you should probably opt for a high-refresh panel anyway. This monitor should suit most gamers and productivity users well.
