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. Desk space usage between the two will be marginal, I’d aim for the M7 for the extra screen space.

  2. The Samsung M7 would be better for a student as it has a bigger screen and that would be better for doing homework. It can also be turned into entertainment when school hours are over with its awesome graphics also built for gaming and movies with wide screen technology and built in speakers.

  3. The Samsung M7 would be better for a student as it has a bigger screen and that would be better for watching media, playing games and doing homework

  4. I would opt for the cheaper of the two and tell the kid he can pay for the upgrade if he wants to.
    Either way, he still has work off half of it. Cutting the lawn, trimming trees… whatever.
    And, no computers in the daytime, unless it’s to do with school.
    Life ain’t fair. The World is hard,

  5. The Samsung M7 smart monitor. Because a monitor that doubles as a television is perfect for a student.

  6. The Samsung M7 smart monitor is the one I would choose. After working on a little old Toshiba TV/Monitor that my mom-in-law had which was left to my husband and me after she passed away. Yes, I was very grateful but my eyes and my ears were not. Former student and now working from home the Samsung M7 would have ticked all my boxes. Having the Samsung M7 would have been great for a student because they could have opened up more tabs which would have made it easier than closing and reopening them. The speaker’s capability would have saved their ears from getting warm and or sore from wearing a headset for more than 8 hours. ( I know I would wear them up to 14 plus) In conclusion, the Samsung M7 would be great because of: Resolution of 4K, affordable, looks great and Samsung is a very great Brand.

  7. The Samsung M7 would be the best choice for a student as it allows them to multitask (with multiple windows) on the same screen due to the size.

  8. The Samsung M7 would be my choice, as it has a larger screen and internal speakers great for zoom classes, which have become the norm

  9. The Samsung M7 because a larger screen is easier to see and more likely to keep the student engaged!

  10. The Samsung M7 would be much better for students. The larger screen would be perfect for homework and entertaining.

  11. M7 would be great for a student because it’s bigger so if they use it for a tv as well that’s nice.

  12. The Samsung M7 would be my choice. The larger monitor would be ideal for homework and watching the occasional movie.

  13. I thing the M7 Monitor would be better because students frequently need to be looking at multiple things at once so with the extra screen size you could have things open side by side.

  14. The Samsung M7 smart monitor would be best for a student as they could fit all of their work on one screen!

  15. The Samsung M7 would be my choice. The larger monitor would be ideal for homework and watching the occasional movie.

  16. As a former student, I would like to have had a larger monitor to complete homework and watch movies. So the Samsung M7 would be my choice

  17. The Samsung M5 smart monitor would be the better choice for a student as this monitor is cheaper and smaller. Perfect for the student on a tight budget in a small room.

  18. Any student would love the larger M7 screen for doing their projects, homework, etc, then, with (any) downtime they could kick-back and easily watch a movie or burn off steam with playing a video game. (In a shared dorm room, they’d be a hit with their roommate)! Having the “PC On Screen features” is a real boon for editing and viewing documents/papers.

  19. I think it’d be great for a student because it’s self-contained – smaller than a TV and a computer and it’s both!

  20. Samsung M5 smart monitor would be better for a student as it would be an easier fit to a small desk.

  21. The M7 monitor due to the sheer size, would make it more convenient for work at home and make use of my desk space
