Although creatives might prefer an all-singing, all-dancing 4K monitor to work on, the reality is not everyone has that kind of cash to splash. So I'm delighted that the Asus ProArt monitor is currently price-slashed from $299 to just $200 at Walmart – that's a third off. 

This monitor is our budget pick for both our best USB-C monitor and our best monitor for MacBook Pro guides. It may not have 4K resolution but we feel the resolution and colour accuracy is ace for the price. The display is sharp and clear, too. See the full list of specs below.

Overview: The cheapest of the ProArt range, this monitor doesn't have the bells and whistles of its bigger siblings. But it is well worth it as a budget pick as it performs remarkably well for its price point – and this record-breaking deal makes it even better.
