The Smart Monitor M5 is a very interesting combination between a computer monitor and a smart TV. The M5 screen will carry the design language of Samsung smart TVs in 2021, with a leg assembly with a neat screen support shaft and a very sturdy base made of aluminum.
This design trend is very suitable for users who want a simple computer setup corner because the stand has helped the monitor have a decent and polite design in the computer corner.
