In working for the blog, I’ve read many, many reviews of computer monitors and, if I’m being honest, they all eventually sort of blend into each other and it’s hard to tell what sets each apart from the rest. But while working on publishing its review, the Samsung ViewFinity S9 monitor stood out to me. It has 5K resolution, an included HD webcam, and lots of thoughtful and useful features added for users. Find out what makes this monitor a hit in my book and enter for a chance to win it.

The ViewFinity S9 is a work from home workhorse

Given that it costs as much as a high-end TV, I would definitely expect a lot from the ViewFinity S9 monitor. And it delivers. This monitor is designed to be at the centre of your workspace while taking up as little space as possible. It has a beautiful, sleek look and can be wall or arm mounted to still be accessible but free up some desk space. It comes with a 4K webcam for all your video calls or vlog recording too! The 27-inch display may seem small to some, but is really the perfect size to be unobtrusive while still giving you plenty of real estate to pour over long Excel sheets or refine that tricky curve of the new art piece you’ve been working on.

The display features of the S9 perfectly lend themselves to creative tasks and long hours looking at detailed documents. If you read through Chris’s honest review of the monitor, you’ll learn that the S9 has a multitude of display features, key of which is the impressive 5K resolution. 5K means over 14 million pixels, which is ideal for those who need (more than) ultra-high definition and clarity for video editing, graphic design, and gaming. For ease, the monitor can be height adjusted via the stand as well as tilted up and down to get the optimal viewing angle, and can also be pivoted to 90 degrees for those times when a vertical view is more useful. Two additional features I like the most are the Eye Care technology and matte display, which is very important for making sure your eyes aren’t constantly fighting glare and getting easily strained.

An entertainment and smart hub rolled into one

Like many, I am an early October baby, with a birthday that’s just a few days before Thanksgiving. So for me, there’s usually a lot to look forward to in October as fall moves toward the cold, cold holidays—a quick weekend away, cozy days sipping on hot chocolate, and horror movie nights to watch spooky stuff around Halloween. I know if I were to win the ViewFinity S9 it would not only be a fantastic birthday gift but I would be very thankful to have a high quality screen from which to independently stream YouTube or any other video content. You don’t need to be connected to a computer, or speakers either. It’s also possible to play games without a console with the Samsung Gaming Hub! Some Fall Guys perhaps? Haha. Now, playing games wirelessly on a monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate is not going to give you the optimal gaming experience that a competitive player might want, but for the casual gamer, the S9 will be more than good enough.

While gaming or watching a cheesy horror flick, you can also change the smart lights in your room to set the mood with Samsung’s SmartThings app. This monitor is able to control any compatible smart home devices in your home for you, so you don’t even have to get up from your chair to turn your oven off when the turkey is done cooking! Sadly, though this monitor can do many things, it can’t actually take the turkey out of the oven for you.

  1. I would use this monitor the most of for working and entertainment such as watching tv/movies and gaming if i won it.

  2. I would use it mostly for TV/Movie viewing and for my YouTube channels. The 3 specs I am most excited about are the 5K resolution, built in speakers and the Smart TV app.

  3. 1. I think I would use this monitor the most for online shopping honestly. Maybe I’d even take up a work from home position since I’d have such a pimp monitor to be using. Also to counter act the online shopping lol. Maybe I would try gaming from a desktop that could be fun.
    2. The fact that it can mount to a wall is pretty cool and very space effective if you have limited room. Another feature I thought was cool was that it has a matte display to help your eyes not fight the glare so bad. Kinda like those blue ray glasses? Lol is that what there called
    The last feature I thought was pretty sick was controlling lights from the monitor. What kind of next level shit is that? Love that for me.

  4. Me and my gf could both use this monitor, while I would mostly use this monitor to work, game and watch anime, she would love to use it to create to create art!

  5. I would use this monitor for times when I work at home because I need two monitors and only have one, I love that you can place it vertical as it would allow 2 monitors to fit on my desk. It would also be very useful for watching video and/or gaming due to all the features.

  6. I wouls use this monitor most for gaming- Starfield graphics would look incredible on it! But also would watch movies on it for the high quality visuals.

  7. I would use it mostly for work.
    I like that I can mount it to the wall, as my desk space is tiny. I also think the Intelligent Eye care would help with my computer headaches too. It might be fun to try out some new games on the gaming hub.

  8. With its great features, if I win it, I would use this monitor for home entertainment- movies and gaming!
