There was a time when users who were interested in a monitor for their computer were looking for models with a built-in TV tuner. But times change, and now the consumption of content is going elsewhere, such as video on demand services. And that is why Samsung has launched these very interesting models.
The best of work with the best of leisure
A monitor is a very important tool with which to work comfortably, but it is also a fundamental piece for leisure. Having large inches allows you to enjoy a larger workspace and the comfort to devour movies and series in great detail, and so, with that idea of offering the best of both worlds, Samsung introduced the new Smart Monitor M5 and Smart Monitor M7 .
With remote control
With the idea of complex disconnection from the work day, these monitors have a remote control so that we can navigate through the Tizen operating system and thus run the Netflix, Prime Video applications or any other type of application that you install through from the app store.
In addition, with the mirroring functions, you can also send content from your phone directly to the screen, so you won’t even have to move if you want to see something in larger inches.
As you may have seen, we would basically have the functions of Samsung Smart TVs in a computer designed to be placed on a desk table next to a PC.
They can now be purchased in Spain
The models were presented last November, and although they were initially available in the United States, China and Canada, we still had to know when they would arrive on the shelves of our stores. Well, these new monitors can already be purchased in the usual distributors with a price of 399 euros for the 32-inch M7 model, 289 euros for the 32-inch M5 and 249 euros for the 27-inch version of the M5.
The Smart Monitor M7 is the only one that has 4K resolution, so it is also a very interesting option to use with consoles. It is true that it does not have HDMI 2.1 to enjoy 4K at 120 HZ, but taking into account its price, design and features, it is not bad at the time of considering it as a possible option for your desktop.
Next, we leave you with a table of characteristics so that you know the technical specifications of each model.
