As you may have imagined, that means that the Samsung Smart Monitors have everything you need to unify work and leisure in a single device, and above they have a very interesting starting price.

Tizen 5.5: the smart face of the Samsung Smart Monitor
At the hardware level, its benefits have been quite clear with the two previous lists. The Samsung Smart Monitor use VA and IPS panelsdepending on the model, ensuring high image quality, perfect viewing angles and good color reproduction.
The 60 Hz refresh rate guarantees a comfortable user experience, both working and playing games and multimedia content, and the integration of Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity allows us to use these Samsung Smart Monitors completely independently. In this sense, we must not forget Tizen 5.5, an operating system that brings the smart touch to these monitors.
