Upgrade to a pixel-packed Dell 4K display for $220

Dell's S2817Q is available at a great price at Walmart today.

Most of the computers are tied to 1080p monitors, but glorious 4K screens pack four times as many pixels, and today, you can snag one at Walmart for cheap. The big box retailer is selling the 28-inch Dell S2817Q 4K monitor for $220. That’s well below its $600 list price, $188 cheaper than you can get the display from Dell itself, and $40 less than the last time we saw a significant price drop on the monitor.

Such a low price doesn’t get you much more than the basic 4K TN panel. There’s no high-dynamic range (HDR) support or FreeSync for smoother gaming. It’s a straight-up 28-inch, 3840-by-2160 display with a speedy 2 millisecond response time and a 60Hz refresh rate. This monitor also has built-in 9 watt speakers.

To take advantage of all those pixels, Dell built picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture modes into the S2817Q if you need to keep an eye on multiple windows at one time. You can also watch two connected devices at the same time. The monitor packs a pair of HDMI ports, a pair of USB ports, one DisplayPort, and one mini DisplayPort.

This is the best price we’ve seen yet on this 4K monitor, and while Black Friday is only a few weeks away it seems unlikely the price for this display will get any better in the short term.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
