I have always disliked the aesthetics of TVs in the home and have never had one in the living room or master bedroom. My late husband had one in his man cave and my daughter had one in her bedroom.
The Samsung Frame TV has changed all that for me. It sits flush against the wall, it has a frame, and when you are not watching TV, it displays art of your choosing from a Samsung subscription where they have partnered with museums and galleries around the world, art you buy and download from places like Etsy or Juniper Home, or your own art or photographs. Above is an abstract I chose as a start from my free trial Samsung art subscription. I chose the white frame - there are several options.
It also has a built in motion and sound sensor, so it goes dark when nobody is in the room to save energy, and the art pops back up when you re-enter the room.
There are tons of "how to" videos online as far as installation, but basically, you or your installer can hide the one cord in the wall behind the TV and the small black box which is the brains of the TV in the wall behind the TV, in an adjoining room, or in a cabinet, basket, or whatever beneath. Critical of course, to make it look like a piece of art and easily done.
Someone asked about a cable box. I stream as do most people I know nowadays, but if you have not cut the cord on cable, one would be best off hiding the TV wire in the wall, but then having a cabinet below to hide the Frame TV box, cable box, DVD player, etc.
I am crazy about this TV. And I have decided what I want for Christmas - another large one for the great room. And this is also on my Christmas wish list. Those of you who follow me regularly will get this.
And here are some more shots of my bedroom.
