Amazon Prime Day kicked off on Tuesday, July 12 and runs through July 13. I know: Why don't they call it Prime Days? That's an ongoing mystery, and Jeff Bezos stubbornly refuses to respond to my inquiries. (Jeff! One day is a day; TWO are days.) Questionable grammar notwithstanding, Prime Day produces some of the year's best deals on things like TVs, laptops and — you guessed it — computer monitors. Below, I've rounded up some of the best Prime Day monitor deals, starting at just $93 for a top-rated 24-inch model from Sceptre.
Sceptre E248W 24" Professional Thin 75Hz 1080p LED Monitor

A budget monitor with some premium specs, Sceptre's 24-inch screen features two HDMI inputs, a 75Hz refresh rate, built-in speakers and even a blue-light filter. Overwhelmingly positive reviews make this a total steal at $95.
On sale for the lowest price to date, this is practically a TV, something that probably makes more sense on a wall than on a desk. Because it's an IPS screen, it should look bright from just about any angle.
What's better: two monitors side-by-side or a single screen with extra resolution? LG makes a strong case for the latter, effectively shoehorning two monitors into one stylish unit. And this is the lowest price in two years!
A 240Hz refresh rate gives Dell's monitor an edge over others -- and may give gamers an edge as well. (Higher refresh = better clarity, which may in turn improve reaction times.) And this price? Historic low.
A bigger, better curved monitor from Dell, this one spans a whopping 34 inches and an equally whopping 3,440 by 1,440 pixels. Plus it's curved for a more immersive gaming experience. The $387 price tag is an all-time low.
The 30mm drivers make sure your audio delivery is crisp and robust, while Dual Noise Sensor technology, measures the level of potential distraction around you and adjust your level of "cancellation" accordingly.
At more than half off, and with these cans' simultaneous ability to deliver the sound you want while sparing you the noise you don't, this truly is a no-brainer purchase.
"Relationship saver!" proclaimed a relieved shopper. "These headphones are amazing — I should have bought them years ago! I've been working from home for six months now with my boyfriend who insists on taking every phone call on speaker.... I was one Zoom call away from a breakup or a psychotic break, or both. These headphones may have just saved our relationship (and potentially his life) — I can almost stand being in the same room with him again!"

You'll be over the moon (and various other outer-space bodies) about this game's action and hilarity.
"It felt like I was binge watching a full season of Guardians of the Galaxy but I’m controlling the progression," testified one gleeful gamer. "Is it worth the full price? Hell yeah!!!" What he said, except now you can get it at less than half price!
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga — Standard Edition — PlayStation 4
This unit packs a ton into its 14" size: 16 GB RAM, 256 GB of solid-state storage and a fast-response touchscreen. Use it in standard laptop mode, "tent" it for videoconferencing, or flip it for conversion to a tablet.
When it comes to PC laptops, you simply can't go wrong with a Lenovo...especially at this ridonculously low price. This one's a workhorse that'll get the job done, and then some.
"We bought this laptop as a Christmas gift for my daughter," related this five-star fan. "We were very pleased with the screen quality and touchscreen. Also, what you get with this laptop is extraordinary. You can’t beat the price.... I would definitely buy another one. Kind of wish I needed another one."
This little wonder can stream your fave jams via Spotify, Apply Music or Sirius XM; control the lighting and thermostat, set alarms and generally serve as your home's nerve center. Just tell Alexa, and watch it all happen.
At this stage of the game, and with this the fourth iteration of the Dot, we hardly have to enumerate its wonders. Simply put: If you haven't yet snagged one for yourself, here's your chance.
"Best Dot ever," raved one of over 380,000 five-star reviewers. "I currently have 6 Echo devices and I have had nearly every model since the original Pringles can design.... I purchased this latest Dot for use near my new Xbox in the media room. The sound is excellent for its size and I love the futuristic look and shape of the device. Highly recommended!"
‘I think I was more willing at 22 to be like: ‘Okay, I’ll follow’ and then you start going, ‘Well, I don’t want to just follow. I want to lead sometimes and I want to walk side by side sometimes,’ famed supermodel says
A man who took shocking footage of a dog walker being attacked by a bull mastiff today (Weds) claimed he had complained to police about the animal 'loads of times'. Meeran Hassan's CCTV camera picked up the sickening attack in Sheffield, South Yorks., on Tuesday afternoon. The video shows a man, in a blue fleece and dark trousers, trying to protect his own small black dog as a larger, tan-coloured canine appears to snap at his arm. As he moves around and attempts to fend off the rampaging beast while holding his own dog aloft, the bull-mastiff locks its jaws around his left forearm. The man loses his balance and falls into the street during the struggle before a red BMW car pulls up to try and scare the attacking dog off. Witnesses say the victim, who was 'covered in blood' and 'looked like he'd been stabbed' made a dash to a nearby GP surgery before going to hospital. The attacking dog is believed to live next to a house which shares a car park with a nearby nursery. It is thought the dog jumped over a wall before pouncing on the dog walker. South Yorkshire Police said a 53-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident. Meeran, 40, who captured the attack on his security camera, said he had just got home from work when he saw the incident unfold. He said: "I've complained about the dog loads of times to the police but they've never done anything about it. "It just non-stop barks because they leave it outside all the time. "I think the owner is a taxi driver who only comes at certain times of the day to let it out and feed it. But it is left outside for the majority of the time. "It started barking a couple of months ago - when the family moved in but I think it's quite an old dog. "It seems hungry - like nobody feeds it. I've never actually seen the dog until today - it's scary." Armed cops were amongst the responders to the incident, which happened just after 5.40pm on Tuesday in Handsworth Road in Sheffield, South Yorks. The victim, whose chest and arm were cuts in the mauling, went into a nearby GP surgery in the street where he was bandaged up before going to hospital. Police say his injuries are 'serious', but are not thought to be life-changing or life-threatening. The dog was later trapped by police officers who removed from the area. Meeran added: "The dog jumped over a wall, he lives next to the house which shares a car park with the nursery. "The man then tried to get the dog off him - and a man in another car tried hitting the dog. "He was covered in blood and one of my neighbours tried hitting the dog with my blue bin at one point. "He then ran into the doctors surgery with his dog, where they bandaged up his stomach." A woman who lives nearby said she saw the aftermath of the incident and that the man, who has not been identified, 'looked like he'd been stabbed'. She said: "I looked out of my window and saw a man covered in blood, looking like he'd been stabbed. "It was very scary because you want to protect your children. There's a school nearby, it could have been a child." A police spokesman said: "A 53-year-old man from Sheffield has now been arrested on suspicion of having a dangerous dog out of control and remains in police custody at this time as enquiries continue. "We are still looking to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who has CCTV or car dash cam footage which may have captured the incident."
