Samsung Offers Massive $600 Discount on ViewFinity S9 5K Smart Monitor, Available for $999.99

Samsung kicked off a new sale on computer monitors this week, including a match of the all-time low price on the 27-inch ViewFinity S9 5K Smart Monitor. You can get this display for $999.99 on Samsung's website, down from $1,599.99. Amazon is matching this sale.

This is a massive $600 discount on the Smart Monitor, which features a matte 5K display, modular 4K SlimFit camera, and support for Thunderbolt 4. The monitor is a good (and cheaper) alternative to Apple's Studio Display. The last time we tracked this deal was about one month ago, so if you've been waiting for a solid markdown on the Samsung display, now is definitely the time to buy.

In addition to the ViewFinity display sale, Samsung has a few other monitor discounts right now, which we've listed below. You can also find other Samsung products on sale this week, including offers and savings on Galaxy smartphones, watches, and tablets.

At this price, it does seem like a compelling alternative to the Studio Display. 5K panel, similar color gamut, Thunderbolt connectivity, and you even get a height-adjustable stand included. Matte coating, too, if glare bothers you. And, if you like to connect multiple devices — like a gaming console — this should be convenient.

Tradeoffs: Build quality kinda sucks, speakers sound like junk, and that top-mount webcam prevents the use of a light bar on top of the monitor (if that's your thing). If something goes wrong, you've gotta deal with Samsung support, for better or worse. And there's the lack of built-in macOS integration/control (although there are third-party apps that usually fix that.)

I would be more interested in this if it lacked the smart TV functionality and had a corresponding drop in price.
You’ve got it backwards. Smart TV functionality is a way to subsidize the hardware by tracking what you watch, to later serve ads with any cookie associated accounts. It would be more expensive without those features, not less.
