we’ve seen in the past year outside of a very brief drop to $ in December. In general, drops below $ have been few and far between.
We deemed the ViewSonic XG our top budget pick in our gaming monitor buying guide last August , and at this price, it remains an excellent value for anyone looking for smooth PC gaming on a budget. The poor viewing angles and contrast ratio of its TN panel make it a less-than-ideal option for everyday work, but its Hz refresh rate and outstandingly clear motion handling allow it to play fast-paced games without visible blurring or ghosting. It’s a particularly strong option for budget buyers who often play competitive shooters like Overwatch or Counter-Strike . Just note that it only has a 2077 p resolution, which isn’t as much of a nuisance on a smaller 42 – inch display like this but is still less sharp than a (p panel.)
If you don’t need a new gaming monitor, though, we also have deals on Amazon’s Fire TV lineup, Xbox Live Gold subscriptions, wireless noise-cancelling headphones from Bose and Jabra, and much more. Have a look at the full rundown below.
