These Eight Monitors Bring An Instant Computer Upgrade Without Breaking The Bank

Just like the eyes are a window to the soul, so is a monitor a window on what’s really happening at the heart of your trusty computer. Think about it — without it, how do you do…well, anything?

You don’t. But whether you’re looking to work, watch a movie, play games, or just surf the web, the right monitor is key to the experience. Thankfully, monitors have not only been improving in recent years, they’re also cheaper than ever before. Right now, take a look at eight different monitor options that may suit your specific needs, each at savings up to almost $700 off their regular price.

AOC

For more than 50 years, AOC has been pushing the boundaries of display technology, today producing monitors with high resolutions, high color accuracy, and an impressive set of advanced features.

If you’re going for a monitor that needs to fill a smaller space, the AOC 19.5″ Monitor (Certified Refurbished; $79.99; originally $98) might just suit your needs. With a dynamic contrast ratio, you get crisp detailed images and bright vivid colors in HD 1600×900 resolution.  It also sports VGA and HDMI connections so you can transfer HD video and audio signals from your desktop, laptop, or other enabled device.

Going a little bigger, the AOC 27″ Monitor (Certified Refurbished; $134.99; originally $169) features a frame-less design with slim bezels for a more immersive viewing experience. The built-in IPS (in-plane switching) panel serves up superior image quality with vivid colors and wide viewing angles so everyone can join in. It even supports up to 16.7 million colors for brighter brights and deeper blacks.

Of course, if you really want to take in everything a monitor is putting out, you should consider a curved screen. It directs light from all angles towards your eye, causing less ocular exertion and tricking your brain into feeling like it’s larger than it is. The AOC 27″ Curved LCD FreeSync Monitor (Certified Refurbished – $239.99; originally $499) has a 1800R curvature that wraps around your field of view along with AMD FreeSync technology that reduces screen tearing, stuttering, and ghosting.

There’s also the widescreen grandeur of the similarly bent AOC 32″ Curved LCD Gaming Monitor (Certified Refurbished – $259.99; originally $379), featuring full HD resolution, a 3000:1 static contrast ratio and a 250 cd/m² brightness rating. Since it is a gaming monitor, it’s also good to know it’s got a 144 Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time, and that same AMD FreeSync technology for a crystal clear display with none of the artifacting to take you out of the gaming experience.

HP

Of course, everybody knows Hewlett Packard, so you can rest soundly with any of their three monitor sale models. First, if you need versatility, the HP EliteDisplay 21.5″ Docking Monitor ($189.99; originally $269) works with almost any device, each connectible through this monitor’s nine integrated ports. Unlike many smaller monitors, this one also angles like a beast as well, with adjustable tilt, height, swivel, and pivot rotation.

That four-way adjustability is also a calling card of the HP EliteDisplay 23.8″ 16:9 IPS Sure View Monitor ($309.99; originally $364), which also features an integrated privacy screen that drops screen brightness almost a third, allowing you to shield any sensitive content on your monitor for any prying or underage eyes.

But what happens if you want to upgrade an all-in-one computer with a larger monitor, or add a second for a dual-screen display? The HP EliteOne 27″ 4K LCD AiO Monitor ($399.99; originally $1,089) was designed to integrate seamlessly with the HP EliteOne 1000 AiO — and it’s in brilliant 4K. Along with the stellar 3840×2160 resolution display, you can easily switch the display head into your existing EliteOne 1000 AiO base with no tools required.

SunFounder

If you want to take your PS4 or XBox360 on the road, but don’t want to drag your giant living room TV along as well, the SunFounder 13.3” IPS Display Screen ($134.99; originally $149) is a perfect option. At just over 13 inches and half an inch thick, it’s lightweight and immensely portable, while serving up a full HD screen with 1920×1080 resolution, HDMI compatibility, and an IPS panel that is prime for displaying gaming graphics.
