Thursday deals: huge monitors at cheap prices and more

Hello, gerbils! Jeff's been hard at work on the review of AMD's latest Ryzen 2000-series processsors. It's safe to say that the company delivered and that we'll see quite a few of those CPUs in our future recommendations. However, deals can't stop just because some CPUs came out. Check out what we have for you today.

  • Today is huge-monitor day. There's practically no excuse these days to stick with tiny 22" or 24" displays anymore. To prove that point, we'll kick things off with the LG 32UD59-B. The company's not very good at naming its monitor wares, but it's certainly excellent at typing up spec sheets. This 32" beast has a VA panel with a resolution of 3840×2160. Color reproduction is top-tier, too, at 95% of the DCI-P3 space. Finally, the contrast ratio is 3000:1 and there's FreeSync support on tap. You can get this display in your hands for only $369.99 from Newegg with the code EMCPTEY34.

  • Ultra-wide displays are all the rage now, and we have an option in that format, too. The LG 34UM69G-B has an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560×1080 and FreeSync support. Regular response time is set at 5 ms, but gamers can take advantage of the blur-reduction mode that effectively reduces that figure to 1 ms. Around the back, you'll find DisplayPort, HDMI, and USB Type-C inputs. Newegg is selling this display for $279.99 with the promo code EMCPTEY67.

  • You might want a nice 4K monitor but you might not need the 32 inches of that LG above. You should look at this Acer H277HK, then. This display's 27" IPS panel delivers 3840×2160 pixels with a maximum brightness of 350 cd/m². Acer says the contrast ratio is 1000:1 and that the response time is 4 ms. Get the H277HK for only $299.99 from Newegg with the promo code EMCPTEY33. That's a sweet deal.

  • One of the recently-released Coffee Lake CPUs needs a good home, and we figure that the ASRock Z370 Killer SLI/ac motherboard fits that role just fine. This mobo has metal-reinforced main PCIe slots, USB Type-A and Type-C ports, and Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. There's also SLI and CrossFire support on tap, too. Take this motherboard home from Newegg for $134.99. You'll also get a $10 rebate card that can get you a few bucks back.

  • Everyone's a fan of a big, speedy hard drive, like the HGST Deskstar NAS 6-TB spinners with their 7200-RPM rotational speed and healthy 128 MB of cache. We have a combo deal today on two of these beasties for the amount of $299.98 if you use the promo code EMCPTEY57. That works out to a flat $25 per terabyte, which is a great price for a good chunk of fast storage.

  • All this talk about desktop CPUs is all fine and good, but you can't be sitting at a desk all the time. Maybe you're thinking of acquiring an item like the Asus ROG GL702VI-WB74 laptop. This 17.3" is full to the brim with fast hardware, like the Core i7-7700HQ processsor, a GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, and a storage combo setup comprising a 256-GB SSD and a 1-TB hard drive. That's not all, though. The 1920×1080 display has a 120-Hz refresh rate and G-Sync support. All this hardware usually sells for north of $2000, but not today. This laptop trades hands at Newegg in exchange for $1869 if you use the code EMCPTEY52.

That's all for today, folks! There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered. If that's the case, you can help The Tech Report by using the following referral links when you're out shopping: not only do we have a partnership with Newegg and Amazon, but we also work with Best Buy, Adorama, RakutenWalmart, and Sam's Club.

    Question to others here –

    Are you people ever considering 2 displays. A 1080p 144 Hz for games for cheap, and then a 4K for work or whatever?
    It seems cheaper than buying a 34″+ UW display that is 1440 or better and 100 Hz or better. The more I shop for 1 display, the more appropriate I feel different displays for different tasks are.

      The problem there is a physical one. Do you have an easy way to switch displays? Even with gasket-mounted arms, it’d still be a chore to constantly switch.

      What if you want a 21:9 gaming monitor? Why not use it for work also?
      What if you want/need 21:9 for work? Why not spend a little more for a high refresh and use it for gaming also?

      The resolution argument seems more pertinent: get a fixed 60Hz 4K monitor for work if you need that, and a 1440p gaming monitor that doesn’t require insane amounts of GPU capital.

      I use 2 monitors at work. 1 monitor at home.

        The best arrangement for me seems to be a 16:9 or 16:10 primary monitor in the center with additional monitors on one or both sides in portrait mode.
