Amazing TV that really lives up to the hype.

 

It isn't cheap but it is as good as they say. Picture is great. Sound is good. And the artwork function is pretty cool and actually very nice way of 'hiding' the TV in plain sight. Only comment is that there is a lag in the adjustment of brightness and...

sadly old technology TV

 

Looks fantastic but To buy the 55'' TV on its own would be around £900-1000 max so effectively you are paying almost £1000 more for the pleasure of having a picture frame around it and a bit of software!!

Doesn't quite do what "it says on the tin"

 

I bought this tv as I don't like the big black ugly square in the room when the tv is off and the idea of it looking like a picture when not in use was a perfect solution. On a positive note the tv itself looks very good, fits snugly to the wall, is...

Good-but some problems

 

I bought this because I wanted NOT to have a TV dominating my living room. The art feature seemed to answer that problem, but. . . We have had huge problems with the brightness in art mode. It has a sensor which supposedly self adjusts to light levels...

Everything I want it to be!

 

Amazing TV. I had a power socket chased into the wall behind the TV, and the invisible cable. Although if I hadn't had the invisible cable chased it would still look great. It looks just like the adverts! Does everything I want it to do and more. It...

Beware a very visible power supply cable is also required

 

The Frame TV is shown in all the pictures with the "near Invisible" connector. However, it actually needs a separate very visible power supply cable which is only 3m long. Its very misleading by Samsung.

Brilliant idea and excellent picture

 

I have moved house and needed a new TV. Although expensive for a 55 inch TV I thought the frame concept was excellent. I wanted a TVs that wouldn't dominate the room when not being viewed and this does the trick. Would be even better if you could...

TV with a great difference

 

We wanted a modern TV to replace our trusty old plasma screen, and thought The Frame, combining a TV with the ability to show off my photographs, was a great idea. So far it has not disappointed. As a TV it is good and as an art/photo frame, it makes...
