Where will the best Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals be?

High refresh gaming monitors (144Hz and above) are now very popular, with 144Hz fast becoming the line of acceptability for 1080p and 1440p resolutions particularly - the latter being the sweet spot for so many PC gamers - and retailers have begun to notice. Amazon and Dell normally have 144Hz gaming monitors cheaper than most, but Newegg (in the US) and Overclockers and eBuyer (in the UK) have held their own in the past as well. Here's what you can currently expect from the biggest online retailers right now.

Dell: Deep discounts on Dell and Alienware high refresh rate gaming panels
Best Buy: Save on Lenovo, Dell, and LG displays

Newegg: Always offers deals on the likes of Z-Edge, Asus, Aorus, and more

When will the Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals start?

Black Friday is taking place on November 26, this year. However, as gaming monitors have become much more sought-after items in recent years, especially high refresh models, then the Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals could begin at the beginning of the week, or potentially as early as late October, with things wrapping up on Cyber Monday. 

Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals: what to expect on the day

144Hz gaming monitors are going to be popular on Black Friday, which we can be sure of. For instance, last year, Amazon had a BenQ Zowie XL2411P gaming monitor reduced to $199 from its original $289 MSRP. Similarly, the Samsung CJG56 curved gaming monitor was $529, down from $599 - a full $70 off. These are the kinds of offers that you can expect to find on 144Hz gaming monitors from some of the larger retailers. 

Is it worth waiting until Black Friday to buy a 144Hz monitor?

144Hz monitors (and other high refresh rate panels) are still considerably expensive when compared to their 60Hz standard counterparts, especially in 1440p and 4K. Because of this, the Cyber Monday 144Hz monitor deals will see all the top models have some form of reduction, however minor in some cases. We personally think that Black Friday is the best time of the year to pick up a new 144Hz monitor for this very reason, so it's definitely worth the wait.
