These are all the Black Friday monitor deals still live going into the weekend, but we're now switching focus to what's coming up with the Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals (opens in new tab). That's where all the latest and greatest discounts will now be curated going forward, so come take a look.

The good news is that gaming monitors have come a long way recently, meaning you'll get a lot more for your money than you did even just a couple of years ago. Though we expect more deals to pop up as we head through to Cyber Monday, the price drops we're seeing today give a good expectation of what the floor is likely to look like, so don't hold off if you find a new screen you love the look of.

As ever, our guide to the best gaming monitors (opens in new tab) is a great place to start if you're looking to upgrade your current display. But we've also put together a guide so you know what actually makes a Black Friday gaming monitor deal (opens in new tab) this year.

Right now, the best gaming monitor for most PC gamers is a speedy 144Hz screen at 1440p native resolution. You should steer towards IPS or VA panels since they offer better color and contrast than TN panels (while still nailing those high refresh rates). 4K panels are on the table too, especially if you've managed to upgrade your graphics card recently. 

We get that it's not always easy to tell what's a deal, since there are so many monitors and TVs on sale. That's where we come in. We know which screens are worth your hard-earned cash, and which are actually bona fide deals. 

Below is a constantly curated list of the best gaming monitor deals we've spotted over the Black Friday weekend. We even have help from our sleepless deal bots, which trawl every major PC gaming retailer looking for the best prices.

Black Friday gaming monitor deals in the US

Acer PG241Y | 24-inch | 1080p | VA | 165Hz | $179.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer PG241Y | 24-inch | 1080p | VA | 165Hz | $179.99 $119.99 at Amazon (save $60) (opens in new tab)
Normally retailing for around $150, this is the cheapest we've seen the Acer, and one of the cheapest high refresh rate gaming monitors you'll find this Black Friday. As an entry-level 1080p screen this is an excellent price.

Acer Nitro XF243Y | 24-inch | 1080p | IPS | 165Hz | $219.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro XF243Y | 24-inch | 1080p | IPS | 165Hz | $219.99 $129.99 at Best Buy (save $90) (opens in new tab)
The Acer Nitro is a budget IPS screen with genuine gaming credentials. It's got a super low response time at 0.5ms and a 165Hz refresh rate. It may only be a 24-inch panel, but there's a lot to like about this bargainous display.

Dell G2722HS | 27-inch | 1080p | IPS | 165Hz | $279.99 (opens in new tab)

Dell G2722HS | 27-inch | 1080p | IPS | 165Hz | $279.99 $149.99 at Amazon (save $130) (opens in new tab)
I love a Dell panel, they pretty much always look fantastic out of the box, and this gaming focused screen ticks all the boxes. Most especially that combo of 1ms IPS and 165Hz refresh rate. Banging. It's also never been cheaper to bag this 27-inch 1080p gamer.

HP X32 | 31.5-inch | 1440p | IPS | 165Hz | $389.99 (opens in new tab)

HP X32 | 31.5-inch | 1440p | IPS | 165Hz | $389.99 $229.99 at Best Buy (save $160)
(opens in new tab)This is an absolute banger of a monitor deal. I struggle to believe you're going to find an IPS screen with the same size, such a high resolution, and such a high refresh rate for less than the $230 Best Buy is asking.

LG Ultragear 32GN650-B | 32-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

LG Ultragear 32GN650-B | 32-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | $399.99 $241.99 at Amazon (save $158) (opens in new tab)
This big screen LG gaming monitor has never been cheaper than it is right now, and it's a great price for a genuine known-brand 1440p display. Yes, it's VA not IPS, but it will still deliver great colors and sports a high refresh rate alongside its AMD FreeSync tech.

Samsung Odyssey G5 Series | 27-inch | 1440p | VA | 144Hz | $319.99 (opens in new tab)

Samsung Odyssey G5 Series | 27-inch | 1440p | VA | 144Hz | $319.99 $249.99 at BestBuy (save $70) (opens in new tab)
This monitor has never been cheaper than this, and delivers a lot of bang for your buck, too. You're getting a quality Samsung panel with a 1440p native res and a 144Hz refresh rate with FreeSync support. There's nothing not to like.

Gigabyte G32QC | 32-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | $369.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte G32QC | 32-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | $369.99 $259.99 (save $110) (opens in new tab)
I'm a big fan of Gigabyte's pared back approach to gaming monitors. Simple, speedy, and nice quality panels. I use two similar Gigabyte models myself at home.

Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 165Hz (OC) | $469.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Predator XB271HU | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | 165Hz (OC) | $469.99 $279.99 at Amazon (save $190) (opens in new tab)
This is an old monitor now, having launched in 2017, but it's still an outstanding full G-Sync IPS gaming monitor. It's been selling for this price since mid-October, so it's not precisely a Black Friday deal, but we've never seen it cheaper.

Acer Nitro XZ342CK | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | $449.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro XZ342CK | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440 | VA | 144Hz | $449.99 $349.99 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
4K gaming monitors aren't necessarily super expensive anymore, but the GPUs that will really allow you to game in 4K at acceptable frame rates still are. For our money, if you want something more expansive than a 1440p panel you need an ultrawide. This VA panel from Acer has the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio and a high refresh rate to boot. It's also never been cheaper than today.

Acer Nitro XV273K | 27-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | $499.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro XV273K | 27-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | $499.99 $379.99 at Newegg (save $120 (opens in new tab)) (opens in new tab)
A couple of years ago when the Acer Nitro XV273K launched, it was a $899 monitor. It currently has an MSRP of $499. But it's now yours for just $379.99. For a proper 4K, 144Hz, IPS gaming panel. It's also good for 1ms response and 400 nits of brightness. So, maybe the question is, can you afford not to go 4K...?

LG 32GP850-B | 32-inch | 1440p | IPS | 180Hz (OC) | $599.99 (opens in new tab)

LG 32GP850-B | 32-inch | 1440p | IPS | 180Hz (OC) | $599.99 $386.99 at Amazon (save $207) (opens in new tab)
LG is the originator of the IPS panel technology and its 1ms response is about as fast as you're going to see this sort of screen get. And with a potential 180Hz overclock available on this big screen, 1440p display, the LG Ultragear has a lot to offer for the money, and it's only ever been cheaper than this once before.

Samsung Odyssey G5 | 34-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | $549.99 (opens in new tab)

Samsung Odyssey G5 | 34-inch | 1440p | VA | 165Hz | $549.99 $399.99 at Amazon (save $150) (opens in new tab)
Confusingly, there are at least two other G5 models. But we think this is the one you want. It's a 21:9, 34-inch ultra-wide bad boy with 165Hz refresh and 1ms response. It's not a fancy HDR model with a mini-LED backlight. But at this price point, that's pretty much a given. 

Acer Nitro XV322QK | 32-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | $1,099.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro XV322QK | 32-inch | 4K | IPS | 144Hz | $1,099.99 $599.99 at Best Buy (save $500) (opens in new tab)
Obviously, $600 is still a lot of money, but the beauty of spending big on a gaming monitor is that it will likely still be a great screen long after you've moved on from your current gaming PC. And this big screen 4K IPS panel is no exception, with a 1ms response, and the all-important high 144Hz refresh rate. It's not a bargain, but it's a very good price for a big boi screen.

Aorus FO48U | 48-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,499.99 (opens in new tab)

Aorus FO48U | 48-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,499.99 $769.99 at Amazon (save $730) (opens in new tab)
If you're looking to go big, check out this Aorus 48-inch OLED 4K 120Hz gaming monitor. Now that a larger model has been announced, this one got another price cut. Indeed, it's been cut even further from $899. Plus it's an OLED, ie. a peak gaming monitor (opens in new tab).

Black Friday gaming TV deals in the US

Samsung Q60A QLED | 32-inch | 4K | QLED | 60Hz | $499.99 (opens in new tab)

Samsung Q60A QLED | 32-inch | 4K | QLED | 60Hz | $499.99 $399.99 at Samsung (save $100) (opens in new tab)
This QLED TV makes for an excellent second screen for streaming and playing some games at 4K/60FPS. The picture quality also makes it a good TV for an office or bedroom. Yeah, it's a bummer it doesn't support 120Hz at 4K, but it's not too big of a loss if you don't have the hardware to reach those heights. 

LG A2 (opens in new tab)

LG OLED A2 | 48-inch | 4K | OLED | 60Hz | $1,299.99 $569.99 at Best Buy (save $730) (opens in new tab)

This is a great price for a 4K OLED TV, and at 48 inches it's still viable as a very large PC monitor. A word of caution, though: It's limited to 60Hz, so if you've just got yourself a nice GPU and want to push games as far as you can, this will be a limiting factor.

LG C2 OLED | 42-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,499.99 (opens in new tab)

LG C2 OLED | 42-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,499.99 $996.99 at Walmart (save $503) (opens in new tab)
Only the best gaming TV on the planet with a $630 saving right now. Oof. Yeah, this is the real LG OLED deal, and at the 42-inch scale actually makes for an amazing gaming monitor. The HDMI 2.1 makes 4K at 120Hz a reality on PC, and the lightning-fast response of OLED panels makes it glorious for gaming. Yum.

LG OLED55B2PUA| 55-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,599.99 (opens in new tab)

LG OLED55B2PUA| 55-inch | 4K | OLED | 120Hz | $1,599.99 $996.99 at Walmart (save $603) (opens in new tab)
A fantastic OLED offering for gamers, with deep blacks, HDMI 2.1, and all the VRR options you could handle. This one offers low input lag and is topped off with a nifty 120Hz refresh rate. Sure, there are higher refresh rate monitors but, a 55-inch gaming OLED TV sounds pretty great as a giant second monitor for that price.

LG 86 UQ75 (opens in new tab)

LG UQ75 | 86-inch | 4K | 120Hz | $1,199.99 $999.99 at Best Buy (save $200) (opens in new tab)

While the UQ75 isn't particularly gaming focused, an 86-inch beast that's under $1,000 is a solid deal. The huge size means you won't be replacing your PC monitor, but if you're looking for a living room TV that you can also stream games to (or use with a living room PC) then this is worth a look, especially with the 120Hz refresh rate.

LG 27GN800-B | 27-inch | 1440p | IPS | £519.97 £284.97 at Laptops Direct (save £114) (opens in new tab)
Given the name, Laptops Direct is probably not your first port of call for monitor deals, but this 27-inch LG is a great price right now. Even if the 'saving' looks a trifle generous compared to the level it's been retailing for... But with a 144Hz refresh rate, a genuine LG IPS panel, and a 1ms response time, this will make for a great gaming monitor.

LG Ultragear 34GP950 | 34-inch | 3440 x 1440p | IPS | 180Hz (OC) | £1,196.98 (opens in new tab)

LG is the originator of the IPS panel technology and its 1ms response is about as fast as you're going to see this sort of screen get. And with a potential 180Hz overclock available on this beautifully curved monitor, the LG Ultragear has a lot to offer for the money, and it's only ever been cheaper than this once before.

For £5 less you can grab a very similar VA screen, but I'd happily pay that to get a 165Hz IPS panel instead. And with a 1ms response time, this 24-inch screen makes for a fantastic entry level gaming monitor.

A gaming-ready 4K TV for under £600 isn't bad at all, especially at this size. This one comes with a 120Hz refresh for smooth gaming, some wide viewing angles, and HDR10+ for great colour. You even benefit from Game Mode Pro with FreeSync and ALLM (Auto Low-Latency Mode).

You get the benefit here of wide viewing angles, and OLED which means deep blacks. Of course, it's a smart TV, too.
