Televisions and monitors are often used interchangeably because of their similar hardware, but it isn't often that you come across a product that can serve for both productivity and entertainment with equal competence. The design and core specifications of monitors are often focused on productivity, with bright, sharp, and high-resolution, but modestly sized panels. However, Samsung's new ‘smart' monitor appears to be equally at ease if you want to watch some Netflix after your work is done for the day.
The Samsung 32-inch Ultra-HD Smart Monitor M7 is a versatile product from the Korean company, combining productivity and entertainment. Although positioned as a monitor, the 32-inch screen effectively doubles up as a TV as well, after work hours. The device has full smart connectivity through Tizen, and allows for streaming of content directly using its smart interface and remote.
Although not suited for gaming, the monitor works well as a productivity option with entertainment features, with an Ultra-HD screen and support for up to the HDR10 format for high dynamic range. Although expensive, the M7 is a useful device for those looking for the benefits of both a monitor and a TV.
