Samsung smart screen M8
The Samsung Smart Monitor M8 is a 4K display for your PC, but it can also be used on its own to access streaming apps like Netflix, and it includes a 5MP camera for HD video calls and meetings. You can save $200 on it now, which makes it just under $500.
Monitors don’t always have to be for your computer, and Samsung Smart Monitor M8 is the best example of that. On top of being one of the best productivity monitors, this monitor runs Tizen so you can use it on its own to access media apps like Netflix, Disney+, etc. It even includes a webcam that you can easily attach to the top of the screen for video calls and meetings. All of this normally costs $699.99, but thanks to a big Black Friday deal, you can get it for just $499.99, which is a pretty tempting price for such a versatile monitor.
Let’s start with the basics: The Samsung Smart Monitor M8 has a 32-inch VA panel, which can reach 400 nits of brightness for easy viewing in any room you put it in. It comes in 4K, so it looks pretty sharp, and it supports HDR10+, so you can enjoy some HDR content on it as well.
In terms of connectivity, it has a USB Type C port, which means you can connect it to your laptop with a single cable to not only connect the display itself, but also charge your laptop at the same time. Apart from that, there is a micro HDMI port as well, if you prefer to connect that way. The Samsung Smart Monitor also supports wireless transmission with Apple AirPlay support and Samsung phones can also connect wirelessly to use Samsung DeX. Of course, you can use the screen on its own, and it will look like a Samsung Smart TV, with access to all the apps you already know.
Another highlight of the Smart Monitor M8 is that it comes with the Slim Fit Camera, which is a webcam that magnetically attaches to the back of the screen for video calling and meeting playback. Since it’s a fairly high-resolution camera, this can be a great upgrade from your laptop’s webcam, so it can make your telework experience that much better, too.
All of this makes for a great monitor for just about anyone, and if the $700 price tag was too much for you, discounting it to just $500 means now is the best time to buy it. Otherwise, you can check out more screens in our roundup of Black Friday deals on PC.
