Get this 32-inch 4K 144Hz Dell monitor for £494 – more than £100 cheaper than Amazon UK

Dell’s 32-inch G3223Q gaming monitor has had its first major discount, thanks to a sale on the Dell UK store and a voucher code that knocks even more off the price. It’s now possible to pick up this 4K 144Hz HDMI 2.1 model for £494 when you use code VOUCHERBOX4MON at the checkout, compared to £610 for the same monitor at Amazon UK – that’s £116 cheaper.

Alienware’s 34-in AW3423DWF QD-OLED ultrawide is down to £880 at Amazon UK

The Alienware AW3423DWF is a monitor we’ve talked about a few times, as this 34-in ultrawide QD-OLED manages to outperform almost everything else on the market – albeit with a four-figure price tag that also eclipses almost every alternative. Now though, this 3440×1440 165Hz gaming OLED has dropped in price by a sizeable 26% or £310. That brings the monitor well into three-figure territory at £880, still pricy but a reasonable value given that this Dell monitor is head and shoulders above its IPS, VA and TN opponents. Read more

This basic monitor arm is down to $22.79 after two coupon codes

It’s rare to see a double discount deal on Amazon, but today that’s exactly what’s happened with this promotion on the Irongear Single Monitor Arm. It normally retails for $75.99, but you can tick a 50% off coupon on the product page and use code 2YXE4T73 to knock the price down to just $22.79 – an incredibly low asking price for a solid budget option that can handle even ultrawide monitors up to 26.4lbs/12kg.

Blank screens and a bad neck: hands-on with the Samsung Odyssey Ark monitor

While mooching around Samsung’s Gamescom booth, waiting for their 990 Pro SSD reveal, I took the opportunity to play with an altogether more unusual addition to their hardware catalogue. The Samsung Odyssey Ark, for the unfamiliar, is a kind of all-in-one entertainment screen: a mammoth 55in Mini LED panel that can act as a desktop gaming monitor or living room TV, complete with honking great speakers and built-in support for all the big game streaming services so you can play on it without a PC or console. Unlike other monitors of this magnitude, it can also rotate into portrait mode,…

Samsung’s Odyssey Ark monitor wants to kill your gaming PC

Samsung have made a lot of great gaming monitors over the years, and they’ve also been making steady inroads into the realm of cloud gaming through their ongoing partnership with Microsoft. Until now, most of their cloud ambitions have been neatly contained in the console space, but today Samsung have unveiled their latest cloud-enabled PC monitors, presumably in the hope that the combination of Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia’s GeForce Now, Stadia, Utomik and Amazon Luna services inside their integrated Samsung Gaming Hubs will be enough to convince folks to part with their towers once and for all.

MSI Oculux NXG253R review: Nvidia Reflex is sharp, but 360Hz is still unnecessary

Even if you’re not “into” PC gaming hardware, spend enough time in its orbit and you’ll eventually develop a healthy scepticism for a specific type of electro-trickery. The kind that promises, naturally with the right purchases, to help you shoot better or drive cars faster or generally be a more PRO ELITE WINNER in competitive games. For me, there have been two such technologies I’ve never really bought into: ultra-high 360Hz monitor refresh rates, and Nvidia Reflex, a kind of setup-wide latency reduction system. Now, having spent some quality time with the MSI Oculux NXG253R – which features both –…

Porsche Design AOC Agon Pro PD32M review: not very Porsche-y, but a fine gaming monitor

Here we have another AOC gaming monitor, except it’s not just by AOC, but by posh car makers Porsche? It’s the Porsche Design AOC Agon Pro PD32M, a premium 4K / 144Hz beast of a display, and is in fact the second hardware collaboration between these unlikely bedfellows. It’s also far more ambitious (and expensive) than 2020’s AOC Agon PD27. It’s flat rather than curved, but goes for both a higher resolution and a larger 31.5in IPS panel. Its DisplayHDR certification also rises from 400 to 1400, fuelled largely by a switch to more advanced Mini LED backlighting: the same…

This Black Friday discount on the Samsung Odyssey G9 is almost as massive as the monitor

Black Friday is a time of excess, kicking off a season of even more excess. In that spirit, I’ve been thinking about buying four more of my current monitor and lashing them together into a makeshift array using rope fashioned from my corgi’s shed hair. There’s no way that I could achieve such an impressive display in any other way, certainly not with a single monitor. At least that’s what I thought, until hardware ed James reminded me that the humongous Samsung Odyssey G9 exists. Read more

Monitors are a must in PC gaming – or even for consoles, if you don’t have a TV. It’s tempting to invest in that additional screen to increase productivity or juggle windows. Heck, some people even have three monitors or one of those vertically aligned sideways ones. Thankfully, Black Friday brings deals on these necessary investments every year.

$220 for a 27-in 1440p 144Hz ViewSonic monitor is an absolute steal

It’s rare to see a legitimately good 1440p 144Hz monitor for less than $250, but right now ViewSonic’s VX2758-2KP-MHD is on sale at Newegg for $220 – a stunning $110 (33%) reduction from its original price of $330.

Dell’s 1440p 240Hz Alienware monitor is back to £550

The Dell Alienware AW2721D is one of our top recommended monitors, sitting right in the emerging 1440p 240Hz sweet spot preferred by players of fast-paced shooters and racing titles. Right now, the monitor has returned to the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it, £550, down from a nominal RRP of over £800. Read more

Get a 27-in Fast IPS 1440p 144Hz monitor for £238 – that’s £62 off its normal price

Fast IPS monitors like the Dell S2721DGFA and LG 27GN800 have become some of my personal favourites to recommend, thanks to their combination of excellent motion handlin, wide viewing angles and gorgeous colours. We’ve seen these 27-in models discounted to around £300 a few times over the past few months, but today a couple of discount codes have dropped the price to historic lows. You can choose from the Dell S2721DGFA, a 165Hz monitor with great ergonomics, for £270, or the LG 27GN800, a 144Hz monitor with a more basic stand, for £238. Either way, you’ll get an incredible value…

LG’s phenomenal 27GL850 monitor is back down to £299 at OCUK

The LG 27GL850 is an iconoclast, a monitor that broke the mould by daring to combine the colours and viewing angles of IPS monitors with the blazing fast pixel response times you’d normally only find on TN panels. The result is what LG call ‘Nano IPS’ and what I call ‘Fast IPS’, a new class of monitors that offer incredible all-around performance, from gaming to content creation. The 27GL850 was the first such monitor to hit the scene, and a couple years on it remains an incredible value choice for anyone with a mid-range PC. Today, Overclockers in the UK…
