The 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.
