'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

AlsoThe best Prime Day deals right now

This year, Amazon's massive Prime Day shopping event is taking place on July 16 and July 17. You can take advantage of deals on monitors of all shapes and sizes suitable for every budget: affordable flat screens suitable for daily tasks, curved, high frame-rate models perfect for your next gaming session, large monitors perfect as entertainment hubs, or even dual-screen options for the busy home office worker.

Best Amazon Prime Day monitor deals

  • Current price: $980
  • Original price: $1,600

One of our favorite Prime Day deals is for a Samsung Odyssey curved gaming monitor. This monitor, available with a $620 (39%) discount, comes with a 49-inch OLED display, FreeSync Premium Pro support, a 240Hz refresh rate, and a 0.03ms response time.

  • Current price: $90
  • Original price: $173

If you're in the market for a smaller, budget-friendly gaming monitor, you can take advantage of a $83 discount on a 23.8-inch Acer Nitro. This monitor is called a ZeroFrame due to its thin, small bezel, and comes with a Full HD display, AMD FreeSync Premium support, a 165Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time.

  • Current price: $90
  • Original price: $118

This already affordable Acer monitor is another $28 off. Suitable for home office use, this monitor is equipped with a 23.8-inch Full HD Zero-Frame display, AMD FreeSync support, a 100Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time.

  • Current price: $540
  • Original price: $600

LG's DualUp is an unusual monitor. The DualUp is a vertical option -- rather than a traditional, horizontal design -- which provides enough display real estate to run two screens simultaneously and offers an SDQHD resolution. This monitor is available with a $60 discount.

  • Current price: $140
  • Original price: $170

An alternative gaming or work monitor is on sale. This LG model comes with 27-inch Full HD display, a 165Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. This monitor also comes with motion blur reduction technologies and support for AMD FreeSync Premium.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024? 

Prime Day is one of the most popular sales events of the year. In 2024, Amazon's Prime Day 2024 will officially run from July 16 at 12:01 a.m. PDT through July 17. The annual two-day sale will provide discounts on technology, electronics, home products, clothing, and more.

Are monitors really cheaper on Prime Day? 

In our experience, monitors often get excellent discounts during the two-day Prime Day sales event. Vendors including Samsung, LG, and Sony are only a handful among many that cut the price of their monitor ranges by up to 30% or 40%, making Prime Day a great opportunity to upgrade your existing hardware.

How do I know what monitor is right for me? 

As a valuable tool for work, productivity, and entertainment, picking the right monitor as part of your home setup is imperative. If you have a smaller space, consider going for a display size within the 20- to 30-inch range, while larger spaces could more readily accommodate sizes between 30 and 50 inches. We recommend flat screens (and preferably with eye comfort technologies) for work, but gamers are better served by curved screens and a higher refresh rate, as they provide a more immersive experience. If you plan to use your monitor to watch movies, however, consider products with 4K resolution.

How did we choose these Prime Day deals?

At ZDNET, we only write about deals our team members would want to buy -- devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. We looked for deals that were at least 20% off (or are hardly ever on sale), using established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops.

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we recommend. These recommendations may also be based on our own testing -- in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter.
