With more and more of us working from home these days, it has become ever-more important that we equip our home offices with technology that will help us be productive and ensure that we look after our health.
Using a good PC monitor is one of the easiest way to do just that and, with hundreds of monitors on sale over this weekend’s Black Friday deals, now’s a great time to buy—either as an upgrade to an existing monitor or for a new screen to plug your work laptop into.
Not only does a larger screen help you view more documents at once, and side-by-side, monitors with good adjustability make it easier to position your screen in an ergonomic way, helping with back strain problems. And monitors with eye-care modes can lower the amount of blue light emitted from them, so reduce strain on your eyes and make it easier to sleep at night.
Here we’ve rounded up the best Black Friday monitor deals for every budget, so you don’t have to trawl the web looking for them. Read on to find the perfect Black Friday monitor deal for you and your home office.
