In the lead up to Australia's Black Friday sales later this month, Samsung is hosting a quick flash sale on some of its excellent monitors, both in the Odyssey gaming series as well as a couple of its Smart Monitors that double up as TVs.
This flash sale is for 24 hours only and will end tomorrow, Saturday, November 4 at 8:59am AEDT, and there's up to 50% off these monitors. We think one of the most tempting discounts in this flash sale is on the 32-inch Odyssey G51C gaming monitor, which you can now snap up for just AU$599! Want to go bigger? The 43-inch Odyssey Neo G70NC 4K gaming monitor is now just half price!
Other than monitors, Samsung is also discounting its excellent T7 Portable SSD in a couple of storage options by 30%, which is a great bargain, although we think it might be cheaper to pick one of these up when the official Black Friday sales start as they will likely drop further in price now that Samsung has released the T9 Portable SSD.
The way this flash sale works is simple: you just head to Samsung's early Black Friday deals landing page and you can add the item of choice directly to your cart. You won't be able to head to the product page from there, but you can reveal the discount.
We've listed the discounted monitors below to make it easy for you to know what you're buying, but note that they all lead to Samsung's dedicated sale page from where you can add the items to your cart directly. But hurry, as these offers will be gone by 8:59am on November 4.
