Product Snapshot

Overview

The Samsung Smart Monitor M7 is a budget display launched in 2020 and aimed at users who want to be able to work or enjoy media content seamlessly. It runs on Samsung’s exclusive Tizen OS, making it very easy to navigate and access apps such as Netflix, YouTube, or HBO for streaming. The display’s ability to automatically adjust its brightness levels gives it a slight edge over the Samsung S70A monitor, and its 4K UHD resolution makes it perfect for streaming movies and media content. The monitor’s remote also allows for convenient use, and its built-in speakers are of considerably better quality than other monitors within the same price range. Make sure you get to the end of this Samsung Smart Monitor M7 review to find out if it’s got what it takes to rank among the top-rated computer monitors around.
