What you need to know for Black Friday

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday is always the day after Thanksgiving, and the biggest shopping day of 2023 falls on November 24th. While it officially starts at midnight, expect to find early Black Friday sales in the days and weeks leading up to the 24th.

Although most Black Friday sales will end on November 25th, some may last throughout the weekend and into Cyber Monday as supplies last.

What gaming monitor deals should I expect?

Generally speaking, expect Black Friday deals for gaming monitors to be comparable to Black Friday TV deals. The more expensive the gaming monitor, the steeper the price cut. For example, you should expect to see a costly 4K curved monitor that normally retails for $600 to be on sale for around $450, or an excellent 1440p monitor regularly priced at $235 to go on sale for $195 for Black Friday.

If you’re hunting for a quality gaming monitor in this economy, any discount helps, but if you want to go big, Black Friday is the time to buy for PC gamers (it’s worth noting that gaming PC Black Friday deals are also upon us).

What kind of gaming monitor deals did they have last year?

Some of the best gaming monitor deals of 2022 included $130 off a Dell G2723HN 27" 1080p 165Hz FreeSync IPS Monitor (normally sold for $259), a $261 discount on a Dell UltraSharp U3421WE Curved USB-C 34" Monitor (regularly $869), and $120 off the Samsung Odyssey 27" 1440p 165Hz IPS Gaming Monitor (usually $399.)

How to get good gaming monitor deals on Black Friday

Do some research beforehand to get a general idea of either the gaming monitor you want, or familiarize yourself with the specs of similar models before Black Friday, so you can easily identify the best monitor for you and check out fast to be sure you get your top pick.

Take the time to search social media for anything related to PC gaming that you’re interested in. You may be surprised to find some obscure, yet excellent, deals on gaming monitors out there.

Act quickly if a Black Friday gaming monitor deal grabs your attention, as stock may be limited.

How to choose the best gaming monitor for you?

Style

It’s up to you to learn whether or not your PC can effectively handle displaying a 1080p, 1440p, or 4K resolution, but since your brand-new gaming monitor will be sitting on your desktop for a long time to come, take a moment to consider its aesthetics before you buy.

Size

If you have the desk space and the Black Friday tech deals allow you to go bigger, always spring for a large gaming monitor. Even with the sales, an extra-wide curved gaming monitor may be a bit pricey, but it’ll be worth it in the long run. Consider a more comfortable gaming setup if you do go big—right now is also to find sizable gaming chair Black Friday deals as well.

Features

There are a number of first-class features that help some gaming monitors stand out from their competition, including HDR (high dynamic range) for deeper contrast between light and dark tones, a much more vibrant color palette, and an all-around brighter display, an immersive curved shape, and technology like Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync for smoother online gaming. These special features add up quickly for a superior gaming experience. If they’re a good fit for your PC and the games you play, they’re an excellent investment.
