The Samsung Smart Monitor M8 is currently available for pre-order in Canada ahead of its official Canadian launch on April 20th at a starting price of $699.99.

It doubles up as a TV and monitor, offering smart TV with Netflix, YouTube and most streaming platforms, as well as connection options for most laptops, AirPlay for Apple products and even DEX to connect your Samsung smartphone as a computer.  It also has built-in speakers, a 4K display and an added webcam. This monitor will light up your room with different color variations such as white, pink, blue or green. The monitor is a minimalist look that suits any environment. There is an ultra slim back, neat camera design and beautiful colors. This monitor can be PC less. You are able to browse the web, edit documents and work on projects, all without the need for a separate PC. There is a new Workmode feature that allows you to access another PC, use Microsoft 365 programs and even connect to Samsung mobile devices with Samsung DeX for seamless working.The SlimFit camera with tilt functionality allows you to create the perfect angle while using your favorite video call apps like Google Duo, which can be accessed directly through the monitor. Plus, the camera cover and option to fully detach always protect your privacy. With the Far Field Voice feature, activate your voice assistant just by speaking.

The Samsung M8 Smart Monitor is currently the best monitor out right, but it is pretty pricey at approximately 700 dollars. Other monitors do not compare to the quality and capability of this monitor, but I am sure other monitors are a lot cheaper. If you are willing to spend money for quality this is the best monitor for you. I think the only thing that could help this monitor sell better would be decreasing the price, but you are paying for what you get.
