Upgrading to a pixel-packed 4K setup usually costs an arm and a leg, but prices have been slowly dropping down, and today, Staples has a nice deal on a big-screen 4K display that won’t break the bank. The office supplies retailer is selling the Dell S2817Q, a 28-inch 4K monitor, for $260. That's nearly 50 percent off its list price, and $170 cheaper than you can get it direct from Dell.

This monitor is pretty basic as 4K displays go. It doesn’t have any special features like HDR, FreeSync, or anything like that. It’s also a TN display, which means it’ll have poorer viewing angles than IPS panels.

On the upside, the Dell monitor has a speedy 2ms response time, a 60Hz refresh rate, built-in 9W speakers, and of course, that glorious 3840-by-2160 resolution. The monitor also takes advantage of all those pixels with picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture modes. The underside of the monitor packs a pair of HDMI ports, a pair of USB ports, one DisplayPort, and one mini DisplayPort.

It’s a nice little monitor at one heck of a bargain price. In fact, this is even a tiny bit cheaper than the last time Staples had this monitor on sale. Back in January, the retailer sold it for $270.

If you’re looking to upgrade to 4K and don’t spending a little more to get premium features like high-dynamic refresh (HDR) and a crisp, factory-calibrated IPS display, Dell still has the 27-inch 4K HDR UltraSharp U2718Q available for $500—$240 off the retail price. That deal also comes with a $200 electronic gift card for Dell’s online store.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
