Best monitor deals 2020: Grab a cheap monitor from Philips, Samsung, Acer and more this September


Want to upgrade your home office or gaming setup? Here are the best monitor deals available this month, starting from just £130

Having a good monitor can make all the difference in the world, especially when most of us are still working from home. However, a good monitor can also be expensive: many of the best models will set you back several hundred pounds. Luckily for you, we’ve scoured the web to find you the best monitor deals available this September, starting from just £130.

A monitor can be used with a PC, laptop, MacBook, smartphone or games console – and sometimes, depending on the number of ports it has – potentially with all those sources connected at once. No matter how and for what purpose you use your monitor, a good one can make all the difference for your eyesight, posture and general convenience.

With many of us facing the prospect of a prolonged period working from home, there has never been a better time to get your home office decked out with a brand new monitor. Or perhaps you just want a new better display to pass your time gaming or watching movies while self-isolating. Whatever the reason, good monitors are quickly becoming a must-have across the country.

Unlike the start of lockdown where retailers across the country spiked the prices of monitors as the whole nation started working from home, things have now changed and you can bag a sweet deal on some really good units. We’ve listed the best units for every budget, detailing their price drops so you have a good idea on how much you’re saving.
