If you’re looking for a big, spacious monitor on the cheap, and you don’t particularly demand lightning-fast performance for gaming, then this LG closeout is right up your alley. The company is offering a 34-inch ultrawide with a color-accurate IPS panel for just $249.99, which is half off its original $500 price.

The LG 34WQ60C-B ultrawide offers 3440×1440 resolution, a pretty huge array of pixels that’s basically a 27-inch QHD panel stretched out to the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio. The gently-curved IPS panel is exactly the kind that I look for to ensure color accuracy when I’m editing in Photoshop. And with a built-in VESA mount, it’s great for popping onto a monitor arm for a multi-screen setup.

The downside is that this is a rather basic design, with no extra ports beyond HDMI, DisplayPort, and a headphone jack. At 60Hz and 5ms of response time, it’s also not ideal for fast-paced games (though of course you can still play whatever you want on it). But for a huge productivity boost on the cheap, this monitor hits the spot. Shipping is free to the US, direct from LG’s online shop.
