Recommend me some monitors?

Looking for a standard 1080p monitor that my mom can use with her work laptop. Must have HDMI. Just looking for the absolute best deal/value.

For myself, looking for a 144HZ monitor to go with the desktop I am building. I currently have a 24-inch Dell P2419hc that I use connected to a laptop as a second monitor for work. I'll be using both the Dell and this new monitor with the desktop (can't give up my dual screens haha), so being able to daisy chain would be nice. Again, good bang for the buck if possible.

I am willing to wait for sales so if anyone knows the historic best price to wait for that would be great.

TIA!

Around $100-120 is the cheapest I've seen 24" 1080p IPS displays go for, usually nothing special though almost always have at least 1 HDMI input.

For high-refresh gaming monitors, there's plenty of 27" 1440p offerings out there - usually around the $500 mark. Some good ones off the top of my head are the LG 27GL83A, and when it goes on sale the Lenovo Y20q-20.
No USB-C daisy chaining there, you'll have to choose between panel type, refresh rate, and price - pick two.

What monitors have you seen for $100-120? I recall seeing a Dell Monitor for $99 a few weeks back I think?

Yeah the dell, there was also an ASUS monitor VA24EHEY at staples a few months ago. Seen the HP 23ES for around $100 as well, but no VESA. I think there was an AOC and Phillips at Costco recently as well.

Even steeper deals to be had on kijiji, I assume= it's because of the recent cheap 32" 1440p screens that I've been seeing lots of 24" monitors being dumped on kijiji for as low as $50 but massive YMMV.
