When will the Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals start?

Black Friday is set to take place on November 24th, 2023 and that's when is most likely for the best deals on 144Hz monitors to start appearing. That said, deals do start popping up from the beginning of the week (Nov 20th) before wrapping up on Cyber Monday (Nov 27th).

Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals: what to expect

Black Friday 144hz deals are an area of the major sales event where we always see an incredible amount of action - and that's in part due to the field being so vast and filled! This means there will be huge discounts in each 'category' of monitor that has a 144Hz refresh rate, or higher. 

Starting with the premium side of things, 2022 saw a lot of 4K 144Hz monitors becoming more readily available. It was the first Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals event for the likes of the Corsair 32UHD144 and the AOC Agon Pro PD32M for example, and we really hope to see even bigger discounts on them in 2023.

In the middle, we have 1440p monitors offering 144Hz - the sweet spot still from our experience. For example, the Razer Raptor 27 is a fine 1440p 144Hz monitor and always gets discounted every year. One of our favorite 1440p monitors over the last couple of years, the MSI Optix MAG274QRF-QD, we're hoping to see drop again too, maybe even get close to $300. 

With that in mind though, the best savings may well be seen in 1080p monitors - now we're seeing monitors with 300Hz+ rates, there's every chance you could get something incredibly quick for less by the time Black Friday 2023. The Acer Predator XB253QGX is a seriously speedy contender in the 1080p category, which should be even cheaper than ever come November 2023. 

We can generally just see the lines blurring further between gaming monitors and TVs too, so that's something to take into consideration. With the likes of Asus, Alienware, Samsung, LG, and several of the other top brands already making big announcements to kick off the year at CES 2023, naturally last year's models will fall in price. As the year goes on, this will become clearer.

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

High-refresh gaming monitors (144Hz and above) are fast becoming the minimum standard for gaming - and as such the starting point for those folks searching for monitors. Amazon and Dell normally have 144Hz gaming monitors cheaper than most but Newegg in the US as well as Overclockers and eBuyer in the UK also can be pretty great too. Here's what you can currently expect from the biggest online retailers. 


Amazon: Regular Low prices on Samsung, Dell, and AOC 144Hz monitors

Should you wait for the Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals?

Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals are best for discounts in November from our experience, so the likelihood is that if you buy something earlier, you could be spending more than you needed to. It all depends if you're happy to wait until Black Friday to save some cash or spend a little more and enjoy the benefits now.

Remember, though, you might not have to wait right to the very end of November to get a great Black Friday 144Hz monitor deal. Retailers go earlier and earlier with their sales, spreading deals across multiple days and even weeks so you might just find one that comes about earlier than the day itself. What's even better is if such as deal is Black Friday guaranteed which covers you for any difference there might later be if the monitor does drop down further after you've bought it (there's usually some form of retailer refund arrangement) - this can definitely be a time to go early.

Is Black Friday the best time get a 144Hz monitor?

If Black Friday isn't the best time to get a new 144Hz (or faster) monitor then we're yet to find out what is. Touching all parts of the gaming monitor market, Black Friday is hands down the best time to get a monitor and that is no different for the niche that is the Black Friday 144Hz monitor deals. 

There will be a vast array of those exact monitors on offer, and any that are teamed with other premium specs such as G-Sync, 4K resolutions, or larger screen sizes will see their prices drop by the largest amount. The question is more if you can wait until November 2023.
