Mini-Guide 2016: How to Buy High Quality Monitors for Less

Your monitor is one of the most important parts of your computer or other electronic devices because it’s the most useful part to you. Without a good monitor, your computer is completely useless. A good monitor improves your experience when using your computer whether for business or personal uses. However, high quality monitors don’t come cheap. This mini-guide contains useful tips to help you get the perfect monitor for cheap.

Buy a Refurbished Monitor

Refurbished doesn’t necessarily mean damaged or faulty. Sometimes, you might not even be able to tell the difference between a refurbished and a brand new monitor. Refurbished monitors are monitors that have been recycled and repackaged by the manufacturers for resale.

Most of them would have already had their faulty parts replaced and they come with warranty too so it’s almost like buying a new monitor. You can get a high quality refurbished monitor for half of the price of a brand new one and this helps you save a whole lot of money.

Use a Monitor Review Site

A monitor review site is one that is dedicated to providing the latest information about different brands of monitors in the market. They also compare prices of different monitors and inform you whenever there are sales or discounts from various online and offline stores that sell high quality monitors. You may want to keep an eye on monitor review sites if you really want cheap deals on monitors.

Buy Recycled Monitors

Most people with Cathode Ray-Tube (CRT) monitors are switching them for the trendy liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors and sometimes, they have to even pay disposal and recycling companies to get rid of these monitors for them. Some of these products are still in perfect working condition and can be used for years without problem. If you are on a budget and cannot afford LCD monitors, you can check websites like Craigslist, Ebay, Amazon and other e-commerce platforms where recycled goods are sold. You would be able to get good quality CRT monitors for cheap and this would help you save a lot of money especially if you are buying in bulk.

Go for Customized Monitors

Do you know that it’s possible to have your monitor specially built for you with your own design and specifications?

Yes it is, especially if you want a special design, like a very small screen or other features that are not commonly found in other products in the market. You just have to discuss your needs and specifications and designs with the manufacturer and they would be able to design what you want for you. If you are buying in bulk, you would find this cheaper than buying conventional monitors.

Look Out for Deals

If you want to buy a new monitor for less, you should take advantage of special periods like CyberMonday, BlackFriday and other special periods when the prices of electronic products reduce significantly due to the numerous special deals and discounts offered by most sellers as reward to their customers during this period.

The next time you’re looking to buy a high-quality monitor for less, simply follow one or more of these tips and you’d surely save a lot on your purchase.
