The M5 32" (₹ 25000) appears to be a bang for the buck over the M7 32" variant(₹ 37000).The only two differences being -1. Screen resolution - 1080P (M5) vs 4K (M7)2. USB C to C option for 65W charging & connectivity is present in M7 & not in M5. However the USB C to C cable is not included in the M7 OOTB package for which you will need to shed out another 1000 odd bucks to get the compatible cable and make use of the connectivity option. Huge disappointment on that front.M5 32" is still a desirable monitor cum Tv @ ₹ 25000 given the value proposition it offers while M7 falls flat, charging a bomb.For 37000, you can get a massive 4K HD LED IPS Redmi TV at 55" against the minuscule 32" inch 4K HD LED VGA Samsung M7 smart monitor, if you desire for a good TV. If you are just after the monitor & not the TV, 25K M5 variant would suffice more than needed.-------Detailed Review :What's in the box? 🎁1. 32" VGA Monitor & a stand with required screws. (Yeah you've seen it right, it's VGA and not IPS)2. Power Adapter3. HDMI - HDMI Cable4. Remote with batteriesWhat's not? 🚫USB type C-C cable for 65W charging is NOT included as part of the M7 package and the feature in itself is not available in the M5 32"/27".What's great? 😻1. TV + Monitor all in one interface, pre loaded with the YouTube/Prime/Netflix/Hotstar/Zee5/Apple TV+ apps.2. Display & visual calibration - Despite being a VGA panel, I've zero complaints on the display quality and the available calibration options. I haven't witnessed any ghosting/black bleeding regardless of the surrounding brightness. Eye Care & Adaptive Display calibration are good & I'm sure with the subsequent software updates, display options and calibrations will only grow from strength to strength.3. Seamless transition from Tv to Work & back : Thanks to the Tizen OS. All it takes is just a remote click and I'm already loving to swap between the TV & the Work Monitor without much ado or efforts.4. Remote - The best part of it all. Minimalistic yet effective. This makes the experience so rewarding. Offers the comfort from wherever you are.5. Audio quality - Oh boy, this blew me off! Nobody would've expected a monitor to perform so well in this area. The Amplification option is "real loud" and trust me you won't need to tune beyond 25 so not to invite the fury of your neighbours. Audio quality is exceptionally good given its price range. Hey but, don't expect the Atmos / Bass effect. It does it's job over and above. DOT. It even allows you to pair a bluetooth headset/speaker if in case you need. The BT headphone option for sure helps those late night binge watchers with parents/kids next room.6. AirPlay support - Perhaps the only non mac monitor to come up with an inbuilt AirPlay support. You can mirror your iOS / MacOs / iPadOs devices with an one time pairing. Works reasonably good although the efficacy lies in the strength of your Wifi.But make no mistake, the monitor doesn’t support HomePods / HomePods Mini yet for Audio streaming. I wish they enabled this feature. This monitor and HomePods for audio would’ve summed up a quality entertainment.What's Meh? 😼1. Tizen/Samsung App Store is still evolving and you won't find a lot of Indian OTT/News apps in there yet. But all the major ones mentioned above are already available.2. Bixby Voice assistant is still mediocre.3. Not for ardent gamers. Screen refresh rate tanks at 60Hz.4. No Ethernet port making it entirely relying on Wifi. So unless you’ve a strong Wifi, you can’t leverage the Tv features much.5. Wireless screen mirroring has a lag and that’s understandable. However the wireless mirroring supports only the screen refresh rate of 30 Hz against the capable 60 Hz. As well the screen resolution is supported only at 720P / 1080P against the 4K.
I do not suggest to buy this product.Luckily I have purchased this product from Amazon so able to returned it.This monior comes with 16AMPS power plug which is not compatible with you home power sockets. 16 AMPS socket comes in bathroom for geaser and in balcony/utility for washing machines.Does this monitor intended to use in bathroom or balcony ?Samsung customer care is not capable to provide a solution. Samsung customer care could not give me reason why this Monitor comes with 16 AMPS plug ? even this product is compatible with Indian electrical standard ?What happens when we use a converter and use the monitor with 5 AMPS home socket? Should we take the risk with such a costly product ?This irresponsible action by Samsung India. We are unfortunate that India do not strictly follow the electrical standard for home appliances.
The media could not be loaded. A perfect baby of 2 parents - a TV and a Monitor.Screen Quality - 10/10 (Best)Brigthness - 9/10Audio - 10/10 (Best)Connectivity - 1000/10Comes with an HDMI cable.This is the perfect monitor for entertainment and work.Value for money!Edit : M7 is better than M5 because 1080p on a 32 inch of M5 is pushing it too far.I would recommend to go for 27 inch M5 or the 32 inch M7, not the 32 inch M5!
