There are a few other monitors, memory, and storage accessories on sale during the Samsung Father's Day sale. This includes $400 off the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 Curved Smart Gaming Monitor, priced at $1,099.99 during this event.

In terms of TV sales, Samsung has a few options during this event, including up to $300 off select models. You can also get Samsung's Sound Tower portable speaker at 50 percent off during this sale, priced at $249.99.

As someone who will need to connect their display to both a Mac and a PC, the M80B's single USB-C input is insufficient. The updated M80C model adds HDMI 2.0 so that would be an option.

At this point, I'd be fine with a reasonably-priced 21.5" 4k. It's crazy that you can't buy proper PPI screens for Macs at any kind of reasonable price.

LG no longer offers it for sale new, but the old UltraFine 4K (22MD4KA-B) used the same 4096 x 2304 HiDPI panel as the Intel 21.5" iMac 4K and was the smaller companion to the 27" LG UltraFine 5K (which is still offered). So you can probably find a used one on eBay at a reasonable price.

They say that because of its design
Its design may be iMac-inspired (or Apple display-inspired), but even that is only a superficial visual similarity. You have to screw the foot on and it lacks the iMac's far more elegant solid-piece stand, and the display is otherwise plastic.

To be sure, it has some positives such as the built-in height adjustment and (arguably) the separately-adjustable webcam, but these also do not make it any more "iMac-like."
