Gaming Monitors

By far, gaming monitors are the most popular monitor variants this Black Friday. Gaming monitors are usually designed with a higher monitor frequency (Hz) and a specialized monitor panel. When it comes to frequency, the general rule is: the higher, the better. As any gamer who has shifted to using a gaming monitor can tell you, the difference is so prominent that it’s almost like playing a whole new game.

Most of the newly-released gaming monitors come with IPS panels. Compared to the older TN panels, IPS panels deliver better color reproduction and less color shifting when the monitor is viewed from different angles. Keep in mind that these added features make gaming monitors more power intensive, so don’t be surprised when your electric bill suddenly shoots up.

This list also includes a few gaming monitors that also have a curved design. Not only are these monitors faster and display higher quality images, but they also provide a larger field of view for a more immersive gaming experience. For hardcore gamers, this year’s Black Friday is starting to look like a shopping spree.
