Top monitor values under $300
CNET rounds up the best monitor values available for less than $300.
Unless you have a strict,when purchasing your next monitor, there's a good chance you'll be at least a bit excited about the following list.
Sure, $300 is no amount of money to sneeze at, but in the grand scheme of devices that allows your computer to visually communicate with you, it could be a lot higher.
Low-priced IPS monitors are becoming a bit of a thing. A thing I fully support. Beyond he inherently wide viewing angles and surprisingly low price lay a bevy of useful ergonomic options.
This 27-inch HP monitor offers great simplicity that meets most basic needs. The 27xi boasts both good performance and design while still being priced in the $300 range.
When you think of the best monitor deals of all time, you won't see the HP 2311xi in your mind's eye. That's because the $240 IPS monitor was only recently released and has not been given adequate time to properly implant itself into your consciousness. However, once you've been exposed to its wide viewing angles and great overall performance, it'll likely be a mainstay in your mind going forward.
It's not just the fact that the HP x2301 is available for as low as $200. There are plenty of monitors available at that price. But, from build-quality to performance to connection options (HDMI, DVI, and VGA), the monitor gives much more than what $200 usually buys. If you're going low price, go here.
You ever have a retail person mistakenly charge you much less for an item you were purchasing? That uncomfortable bit of guilt is what I imagine purchasers of the IPS235V feel when clicking on the purchase button. It's just that you don't everyday get this level of quality for only $230.
Backed by the fantastic four of ergo options, the U2412m also has the performance, design sense, and price to be the most compelling value on this list. If you can look past the lack of HDMI, you'll find a monitor that combines features and affordability like no other. It goes a bit over $300, yes, but it's close enough and it's an awesome monitor.
