You will be familiar with Smart Hub if you already have a modern Samsung TV. The platform powers all of the company’s Tizen sets and provides access to popular streaming services like Netflix, HBO, YouTube, and Apple TV.
With the Smart Monitor series, Samsung blurs the lines between screen and desktop monitor by making Smart Hub available in your workspace. And prices start at just $ 229.99.
Samsung Smart Monitor puts Apple TV on your desktop
The Samsung Smart Monitor does everything you expect from a desktop monitor. It comes in razor-sharp 1080p and 4K versions, both of which support HDR 10. Plus, it comes with all the usual connectivity options. There’s HDMI 2.0 and even USB-C with charging.
Unlike most desktop monitors, the M5 and M7 also have built-in 5-watt speakers, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth – and they come with a Samsung remote. These features allow you to control and enjoy the Smart Hub platform when the working day is far away.
An integrated app store offers all your favorite streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV. And you can stream directly from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac using AirPlay 2.
The line of smart monitors can be ordered now from Best Buy. It starts at $ 229.99 for the 27-inch M5, while the 32-inch model – both with a 1080p display pack – costs $ 279.99. The 32-inch M7, which offers a sharper 4K display, costs $ 369.99 after a reduction of $ 30.
