If you've switched to working from home at any point in the last couple of years, you might have found yourself stuck with a monitor that's, well, less than ideal. That's the only nice way to say it, especially if you find yourself daisy-chaining adapters together to make an old monitor work with a newer computer. Well, take heart: 2023 is the year of good monitors, so take the chance to snatch this LG number up for cheap!
One cool thing about this monitor is that it will fit almost all standard monitor mounts, which is a great thing — trust us. A lot of monitors have moved away from what's known as VESA (i.e., mounting-hole) standards, especially those on the more budget-friendly side of things. Without that compatibility, it can be difficult to connect them to a third-party mount.
"I got this monitor to match the LG Ultragear 27. I was on the hunt for a second monitor that would be identical to my main, but cheaper. This hit every mark and is a great monitor on its own. Ten out of 10," one happy customer said. They even mentioned that it makes a great secondary monitor for gaming, due to the Radeon FreeSync feature.
While it's not exactly a gaming monitor, the 75Hz refresh rate is enough to keep most games running at 60 frames per second — the gold standard for most games — while the 1080p display is more than sufficient for most gameplay. But, again, it's not meant for gaming. It's built for productivity, at which this excels (pun intended). Word documents? Bring it on.
One user said it's a great WFH monitor. "Great price for a really nice monitor. I did a lot of research to figure out which was the best work-from-home monitor and saw this one on a list somewhere in google. I am really happy with it!! Love that there’s a split-screen function and also great that I can adjust the lighting on the screen. The 'reader' section makes it a lot easier on my eyes, since I stare at a screen all day — it reminds me of the night shift on iPhone. The colors are amazing, and the resolution is very crisp."
Right now, the monitor is a full $60 off, bringing it down to just $110.
