If you’re thinking about picking up a Black Friday monitor deal this year, you’re in the right place. With more and more of us working from home these days, it’s become ever-more important that we equip our home offices with technology that will help us be productive and ensure that we look after our health.

Using a good PC monitor is one of the easiest ways to do just that. And with hundreds of monitors likely to go on sale in this year’s Black Friday deals event, November will be a great time to upgrade your existing monitor – or maybe finally upgrade to the multi-monitor setup of your dreams.

Black Friday’s a while away yet though – November 26, to be precise. But if you want to grab the best monitor deal possible on the day, preparation is key. So with that in mind, we’ve pulled together everything you need to know to bag a brilliant Black Friday monitor deal this year, from when and where we expect to see the lowest prices, to what specs to look for, and more.

We’ve also rounded up a few of the best deals you can get today, if you’re after an early bargain, further down the page. Be sure to check our best monitors guide too, if you want to find out which screens you should be looking out for.

Black Friday monitor deals: FAQ

When will the best Black Friday monitor deals start in 2021?

Black Friday officially lands on November 26th this year, but we expect the discounts will begin before then. However, the best discounts usually land on the day itself, so if you’re after a real Black Friday monitor bargain you might want to set a reminder in your calendar.

If you can’t wait that long, there will likely be plenty of early discounts in the weeks leading up to the big day – some might arrive as early as mid-late October. Those that hold out will be rewarded though, as the biggest discounts will likely drop the week of Black Friday. (If you need a hand searching for the best Black Friday monitor deals, be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back as this is where we’ll be rounding them up.)

If last year is anything to go by, we might also see the best deals land slightly earlier than usual. Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic we found that deals began dropping in late October and mid-November, before plummeting at the start of Thanksgiving week. Monitor prices then stayed low into the first week of December.

With many brick-and-mortar stores closed thanks to the local pandemic restrictions, and more people than ever shopping online – plus with Covid-19 causing logistical challenges such as shipping delays – it made sense for retailers to spread the deals out.

We don’t yet know if this year’s Black Friday monitor deals will start as early as last year’s, but our money’s on retailers looking to space their best offers out once again. As always, we recommend having your eyes peeled from late October / early November just to be safe.

Where will the best Black Friday monitor deals be?

You’ll find all the best Black Friday monitor deals here as soon as they drop. However, some retailers are better than others for monitor discounts, and it can be helpful to know which online stores are good for what. We’ve listed the retailers we most recommend shopping at for monitor deals over Black Friday – they’re worth browsing in the run-up, to get a feel for current, pre-deal pricing on any devices you’re interested in.

Which monitors will be discounted for Black Friday?

By November, we expect to see a wide range of discounts across HD and 4K monitors that will be perfect for both work and gaming. This will include many of the best monitors from last year but will likely include monitors that were released in early 2021 as well.

Be on the lookout for monitors from a range of brands too like Dell, Asus, Samsung, and BenQ (many of which have devices that feature in our best PC monitors list). We might not see their most powerful monitors get much of a discount, but if you’re after a premium experience on a budget, Black Friday is the time to look.

What specs should I look for when buying a monitor on Black Friday?

When you’re browsing through the Black Friday monitor deals, it can be difficult to tell what device is actually a good buy and what monitors aren’t even worth the discounted price. We’re here to help you decipher the deals but telling you what specs to look out for.

Firstly you’re going to want to understand HD (sometimes called FHD or Full HD) vs 4K (also called UHD or Ultra HD). 4K monitors will be filled with more pixels, and therefore put out a better image, than HD monitors in general. However, they can cost quite a bit more and are only really worth it for gamers or those who need high-quality monitors for their job.

If you’re after a great viewing experience you’ll also want to look out for key terms like HDR (high dynamic range), brightness, and color support. These features will mean that your monitor will be able to output a wide spectrum of colors, making bright moments pop and helping you decipher what is going on during dark scenes.

Next up are refresh rates. You might have heard of people playing games at 120FPS, but to do that you’ll not only need a PC that’s powerful enough to run a game that well but also a 120Hz monitor that can produce the image. If you aren’t a gamer though, high refresh rates aren’t going to be too important so if you can save even more by going with a lower option we’d generally recommend that.

Finally, you might want to compare flat monitors with curved screens. Curved monitors offer you a wider field of view, a more immersive experience, and many people find them more comfortable though they’re also larger and generally take up more space. If you’re short on desk space, are looking for a multi-monitor setup, or are on a budget, flat monitors will be your best choice.
