Samsung added to its Smart Display lineup a few months ago with the introduction of the M8, and now for the first time you can pick up that display for less. Both Amazon and SAMSUNG yes Smart display M8 white for $100 less than normal, down to $600. You won’t find any other color options at Amazon, but Samsung also has green, pink, and blue versions. While those models are also $100 off, they start more expensive at $730, so you can pick up any of them for $630.
These Smart Displays are designed for people who want an all-in-one display that can do a lot, even without a connected PC. The M8 Essentially a 32-inch, WiFi-capable smart TV and a display in one, allowing you to connect your PC or laptop to use it as an external display or use it with remote control included. You get access to streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and more, and you won’t have to connect external speakers as the M8 delivers audio through dual built-in 5W speakers.
The M8 can also control SmartThings-compatible IoT devices thanks to its built-in home hub. That means you can use Alexa or Bixby remotes or voice commands to turn off smart lights, adjust smart thermostats, and more, as long as those devices work with the SmartThings platform.
In terms of specifications, the Smart Monitor M8 has a UHD 3,840 x 2,160 resolution, HDR 10+ support and a refresh rate of up to 60Hz. It also comes with a magnetic SlimFit Cam that you can attach to the top of the monitor whenever you need to make a Zoom call for work or video chat with friends. We appreciate the M8’s slim, 11.4mm-thick design and its height-adjustable stand, plus its support for AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth 4.2. While you don’t need to drop $600 for a 32-inch monitor, the Smart Monitor M8 is a good choice for those with limited space, those who want a TV and external monitor in one, or those who just want a small monitor that’s more versatile than your standard monitor.
