Most of you reading this have long since moved on from using those bulky CRT monitors of yesteryear, the kind of big and heavy displays that would break your back if you had to lug them up a flight of steps (been there, done that). Nevertheless, you might still be on the hunt for a new monitor, one that is primed for gaming. If so, now is a good time, with Cyber Monday deals bringing discounts on a bunch of models.
This is one of HP's newer models, having been introduced this past summer as a relatively affordable option for budget buyers. The value proposition is now even higher, with this Cyber Monday discount in play.
It is a fast monitor built around a 24-inch TN panel with a 1920x1080 resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. That makes it well suited for esports and competitive gameplay in general, where even a modest GPU will be able to take advantage of the high refresh rate in some games, at the display's not-too-demanding native resolution.
A TN screen is a bit underwhelming these days when IPS and VA displays have come down in price, though according to one of the user reviews, the image quality "actually rivals my IPS panel." And for what it is worth, the user reviews are overwhelmingly positive—it has a 4.5 star rating (out of 5 stars) out of nearly 3,000 user ratings.
Several other monitors are priced below MSRP as well, with options ranging in size from 27 inches all the way up to 49 inches. Here they are...
You might not be able to get your hands on a GeForce RTX 30 series or Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card this holiday with supply exceeding demand, but at least you can upgrade your monitor while you wait for inventory levels to normalize.
