Samsung announced the two monitor series m5 and m7, which the manufacturer is analogous to smart tvs as smart monitors. For this samsung brings a small, economical arm processor in the display and installs its own operating system tizen 5.5 before. This allows users without connecting pc video-on-demand services such as amazon prime video, netflix or youtube. In addition, office-365 applications can be started.
Three displays make the beginning: the 32m70a is 32 inches coarse and lost with 3840 × 2160 pixels (ultra hd) at 60 hertz. The m5 series consists of a 27- and 32-incher with low full hd resolution (1920 × 1080 pixels). Samsung relies on va panels, whose backlight with 250 cd / m² is quite low. The reaction times are also rather slow with 8 ms (gtg).
The manufacturer sees the m7 and m5 monitors for homeoffice. Users can beat their pc at the same time; in the evening, watch the favorite series without having to run the pc. It makes sense only if you do not already have a smart tv.
