These Cheap but Capable Gaming Monitors as Less Than $200 for Black Friday | Tom’s Hardware

Like many other areas of PC technology, high-end monitors have become increasingly expensive in recent years, with state-of-the-art panels often topping the $1,000 mark. But that doesn’t mean you have to drop a stack of Benjamins to get a good experience, or even one of the best gaming monitors. While the price of the best gaming monitors has risen in recent years, the cost of features once premium dropped significantly at the same time. There are several surprisingly well-specified sub-$200 gaming monitor deals available during Black Friday deal season, with new deals every day.

In this price range, you won’t get OLED, full-array local dimming, or ultra-fast 360Hz refresh – though we’ve seen a 360Hz MSI model reach $199, so there could be have more to come. What you can usually find under $200 are IPS or VA panels (the former is better for color and viewing angles, while the latter is better for contrast), equal refresh rates or higher than 144 Hz and curved screens.
