Given the general price trends of gaming gear right now - a broadly downward trajectory as time passes - and their high quality, gaming monitors are great for everything other than games too, be it everyday use, creative use, or work. This is because the best gaming monitors (opens in new tab) have to produce excellent, sharp picture quality, great contrasts, and exquisite colors from the deepest blacks to the brightest whites. As a result, they are excellent monitors for everything - especially when you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get a good one, or one from a reputable manufacturer.
And so here we are. The pick of the bunch today is a high-quality ASUS ROG model, the PG248Q. It is a 24-inch, full HD, IPS, 240Hz screen that you can get a massive $150 off of today by using the code '93XPJ36'. This code will take the price down to an excellent $299.99 (opens in new tab).
For those looking to bag a gaming-focused panel for a bargain, however, the ASUS VP228HE at just $99.99 (opens in new tab) is an absolutely cracking deal. This whippersnapper has great gaming pedigree, built with gaming in mind first, but is equally adept at being a go-to, everyday monitor. Getting two of these for a multi-display setup would be great for gaming, or for boosting productivity when working from home.
You'll find links below for all of these, but note that the VG248Q monitor and Zephyrus M laptop offers end at midnight PST tonight.
