Black Friday is here and awesome monitor deals are dropping as we speak! Here are the best offers worth your hard-earned money.

Whether you're looking for a new productivity panel, an ultra-fast, ultra-responsive gaming monitor, or even one of the latest screens that support HDMI 2.1, there are savings to be had across retailers of all sizes.

Everybody wants to know where to find one of the best graphics cards, but you're unlikely to see one in stock, let alone on sale. However, you can drastically change your computing life by buying a new monitor or two. 

With a new display, you can go for a higher resolution, a faster refresh rate, a larger panel or just a second or third display to boost productivity. 

Monitor Specs to Look Out For

Size - 27 inches seems to be the typical entry-level size where 24 inches is small and 32-inches or higher should be considered large.

Refresh Rate - If you're a gamer, you'll prefer a high-refresh rate display that's at least 120 Hz and supports FreeSync and / or G-Sync technology. Unless you're an esports professional, you probably don't need more than 165 Hz.

Resolution - 4K is the top resolution most people can afford, but it can be expensive if you want both high resolution and high refresh rates. You can usually get a good price on 2K, high refresh monitors and even better savings on 1080p screens.

I/O - If you want to future proof your RTX 30-Series GPU or purchase of the Xbox Series X or PS5, you need HDMI 2.1. And for laptop users, USB-C connectivity makes it super easy to plug in.
