'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. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Miss out on PC gaming deals during all the big sales last week? There's still time to grab a great gaming monitor on sale. Newegg currently has the MSI Optix MPG 32-inch gaming monitor on sale for $330, meaning you'll save $270. 

The MSI Optix MPG uses an IPS panel as well as support for Nvidia G-Sync to give you up to a 175Hz refresh rate, 1440p resolution, and up to 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The IPS display also works with quantum dot technology to produce over 1 billion colors as well as a 1,000-to-1 contrast ratio for enhanced detailing. 

It connects to your computer via HDMI or DisplayPort inputs, and it even has an integrated mouse cable guide to help keep your gaming desk neat and organized. And if you're an audiophile, the MSI Optix MPG has built-in sensors that monitor ambient sound and automatically reduced background noise for crystal clear team comms. And for console gamers, it has a Console Mode to help eliminate screen tearing and stuttering as well as provide better 2K downscaling of native 4K games.
