The best monitor deals this July

1. Acer Predator XB253QGX (avg £295, now £250)

The Acer Predator has a superb refresh rate of 240Hz and a quoted response time of 1ms for when those lightning quick reactions make all the difference, and you’ve got a computer that can give you lots of FPS. Either way, your performance will be helped by the 1080p resolution of this monitor, and its small size means you can focus on what matters. We commended it in our full review for its accurate colour reproduction and its neat stand that won’t get in the way of keyboards and mouse pads. This is the monitor for the gamers who want to perform their best in every match.

Panel size: 24.5in; Resolution: 1,920 x 1,080

2. Huawei MateView GT (avg £405, now £380)

Our favourite "budget" ultrawide gaming monitor is currently going cheap. The MateView GT has a 3,440 x 1,440 resolution and a 165Hz refresh rate with a VA panel that produces cracking contrast and surprisingly decent colours to boot. The curvature sucks you into the action and mitigates the VA panel's poor viewing angles, meaning this is a well-rounded gaming monitor that has remarkably few flaws. Heck, you're even getting a USB-C port for charging connected devices or carrying a video signal.

Panel size: 34in; Resolution: 3,440 x 1,440

3. AOC AGON AG273QXP (was £430, now £259)

This is a real steal. The AOC AGON AG273QXP is a 1440p monitor with a 27in display and a refresh rate of 165Hz. All good, so far. What’s truly impressive about this monitor, however, is how well it performed in our in-house tests. It produced a whopping 99.9% of the sRGB colour gamut and 95.6% of the DCI-P3 gamut. It has a versatile stand that won’t get in your way and has extremely convenient hooks on the sides for hanging a headset on, and has a bundled LED ring light.

Panel size: 24.5in; Resolution: 1,920 x 1,080

4. Philips 243B9H (was £300, now £280)

When it comes to home office monitors, it doesn’t get much better than the Philips 243B9H. It has a flexible stand, a built-in webcam and a USB-C port that supports data transfers. On a technical note, it produced 90% of our sRGB colour gamut test with low colour variance and a great contrast ratio. It uses IPS technology too, so viewing from all angles looks great. For a non-gaming specific monitor it has a decent refresh rate of 75Hz which should be more than enough for daily office work and some light gaming on the side. Its usual price is already something to jump at, but with £30 off, you’d be mad to miss this one.

Panel size: 24in; Resolution: 1,920 x 1,080

5. HP X27qc (Was £280, now £230)

In our opinion, this is one of the best value gaming monitors you can get your hands on. It’s a 1440p, 165Hz curved monitor with a ridiculous peak contrast of over 5,700:1. It’s a good thing, too, because the X27qc doesn’t support HDR or have much in the way of height and tilt adjustments. We can forgive its few quirks, though, especially with a peak luminance of 500 nits.

Panel size: 27in; Resolution: 2,560 x 1,440

Dell U2720Q UltraSharp (was £677, now £592)

One of our favourite 4K monitors is currently on offer. If you're on the search for a practical, colour-accurate screen that doesn't cause your workspace to be cluttered up by cables, this could be the monitor for you. The Dell UltraSharp U2720Q has great options for connectivity (including two USB-C 3.0 ports), as well as a tonne of options for adjustability when it comes to the stand. Top off that practicality with a stunning 4K IPS panel that scored well across the board in our various benchmarking tests, and you've got an excellent all-rounder.

Panel size: 27in; Resolution: 2,560 x 1,440
