samsung smart monitor M5, M7, M8 reviewThe new line of Samsung Smart Monitors blurs the lines between televisions and monitors. Connect one of these monitors to the internet and instantly you can do many things, before you even connect a computer or other device to it. In that sense the monitor is “smarter” than your average monitor. Great for productivity and for pure play. Read on to learn why you might want to upgrade your monitor with a new Samsung, then enter for a chance to win either the new Samsung M5 smart monitor or the Samsung M7 smart monitor.

How smart is your computer monitor

The word “smart” gets thrown around a lot these days whenever people are talking about tech. Sometimes it means it connects to the internet, so you can access features via an app. Smart lights are examples of this. At some point in the future, “smart” devices will uniformly predict when and how you want to use them and behave appropriately without your intervention. Samsung smart monitors fall somewhere between these two.

The Samsung M5 and M7 monitors we are giving away in this contest offer a better experience that most monitors. My daughter recently bought a monitor and I offered to send her a Roku streaming stick so she could watch movies on it in her apartment. However, the monitor didn’t have internal speakers so she could watch movies but couldn’t hear them. The Samsung M5 and M7 do have speakers. However, they have a lot more than that.

Access entertainment and much more on Samsung smart monitors

It’s not hard to see why smart monitors are becoming so popular. Read the review of these monitors by Shelly Wutke on the blog and you’ll understand the attraction immediately. You can access content on the internet just using the monitor: without even attaching a computer. In this sense, it behaves like a television. It’s self contained with the Samsung operating system and its own remote control. Quickly and easily go from work mode to play mode, from typing an article to catching up on the new season of “Stranger Things.” Of course, it’s especially useful for students in a small apartment or a dorm room where you wouldn’t want to have a TV and a monitor. A monitor that doubles as a television is ideal.

But it also serves as an excellent monitor to get work done. The M5 is an amazing 27″ Full HD monitor and the M7 a spacious 32″ 4K UHD monitor. Both feature enhanced features for brilliant gaming when the work is done. And, as I mentioned, both are smart, bridging the gap between monitor and television making this an all in one productivity and entertainment centre.

Amazingly, Best Buy and Samsung are giving away both of these monitors in this contest.

  1. The best monitor for the room would depend on the space available. The M5 is a great monitor/TV for any student, but if the space allows it, then the M7 is larger and better for videos and gaming.

  2. The M7 32″ 4K UHD monitor would be better – a larger screen is always the way to go especially for gaming.

  3. to save space in a dorm room, as its size and resolution allow it be an “all-in-one” panel would be great

  4. The Samsung M7 because of the 178-degree horizontal and vertical visibility which helps display without visual deterioration when working on computer simulations of object designs.

  5. The Samsung M7 monitor is the better student choice because of its large display area makes it more efficient to do report writing.

  6. I think the double purpose of being a gaming monitor and a movie/tv monitor would be amazing for students especially when space is tight.

  7. I would most certainly choose the M7. At 32″ of 4K it would be awesome for movies and surfing with the need for reading glasses.

  8. The Samsung M7 with 3840 x 2160 resolution would be great for studying and doubling as a TV would mean dual purpose for any downtime..

  9. The Samsung M7 monitor is the better student choice because of its large display area makes it more efficient to do report writing. Also better use as a TV monitor as well.

  10. I think the M7 would be the best for a student because the larger size would have less eye strain

  11. I’d go with the M7 for a dorm. It’s not physically that much bigger than the M5, but offers better screen real estate. It already saves space that a TV would use, so it should work even in a small dorm.

  12. The M7 would be great for a student I think they’d appreciate the size doubling as a work and entertainment station

  13. I think the M5 would be best for a student because the smaller size would probably be a better fit for their space.

  14. I think that the M7 would be more useful for a student because of its higher resolution

  15. The higher resolution of the M7 would be more useful to a student for multitasking productivity apps.

  16. The Samsung M7 Monitor would be perfect for the over achiever who strives for productivity and also enjoys gaming with his friends!

  17. The Samsung M7 4k monitor with its ultra-large display area would be perfect for a busy student. Yes, it could do amazing gaming, but the screen resolution and real-estate would give any student, more than enough space to be more productive with multiple windows going: Zoom, Chat, and a PDF of notes or an e-textbook.

  18. I have 2 future students and I think the best one for them would be the M5. First the price is more of what they can afford but more important is the dorm rooms these days are very small so this size would be a better fit.

  19. The M7 would be best for a student because of its size and the quality of the display.Will be awesome for multitasking

  20. I would have to say that the M7 would be best for a student. Screen economy is essential when working on assignments with multiple windows open.

  21. M7 would be great to save space in a dorm room, as its size and resolution allow it be an “all-in-one” panel.

  22. Either of these amazing Samsung monitors would be great for students since they can be used as a computer monitor, Smart TV or even a gaming monitor. This would be the ultimate space saver in a students room. I think that the M5 would likely be best for a student though because of it’s lower price point and more compact size.

  23. The M5 would be better for a student because most students are on a very tight budget and it is the less expensive of the two models.

  24. Both have a lot of good features but definitely for a student because of the price of the M5 is the perfect choice.

  25. The ability to connect directly to the net would probably help students but the larger size makes a lot of difference in coding and photo manipulation, so the M7 takes the prize…

  26. I think that the M7 would be best for a student for increasing productivity, also it is so versatile with its smart features.

  27. The M7 would be best for a student for productivity, also its so versatile with its smart features.

  28. The M7 would be best for a student because of its size and the quality of the display. Also it pairs with Apple and that is awesome.

  29. the M7, the more real-estate on a single monitor is better than having the foot print of two smaller one’s and you can still have multiple windows on one in full screen

  30. At the lower price point and smaller space needed I feel the M5 would be better for a student and still give them everything they need and more!

  31. I think the M7 would be good for a student in graphic design or photography due to the 4K resolution.

  32. I think the M7 would be better for a student because of the larger size to allow him to do everything (movies, games, work) from this monitor with quality
