"In the past, it's been like a tech beauty pagent," Eena Kim, Creative Director of Samsung's Visual Display team told me this morning at the launch in New York. "It's all about who has the best colours, the best specs, the best picture - but we have forgotten who we are speaking to - who we are designing for."
Last year, Samsung introduced an innovative new product to the TV buying public dubbed 'The Frame'. These Yves Behar-designed models attempt to make TV panels feel less like technology and more like art. Boasting a minimalist construction and ultra-thin bezels, each unit resembles a jumbo picture frame.
Originally only available in 55-inch and 65-inch iterations, you can now snap up a 43-inch model which is better suited for the bedroom (and kinder to your wallet). Here are the details.

With exquisite picture quality and a striking design, Sony has put forward a worthy contender for the OLED television crown. OLED televisions offer the best home entertainment picture that money can buy, thanks to the fact that – unlike LED-backlit LCD screens – OLED doesn't rely on a backlight. This lets OLED produce perfect blacks and amazing contrast, underpinning phenomenal overall picture quality.

If you're a big-name TV maker, 'LCD' is a dirty word. OLED is a different technology, but in recent generations LCD panels have been rebranded with modern monikers, from LED to ULED to Samsung's own SUHD. Now, Samsung has a new line of TVs it's calling QLED, with a quantum dot LED-backlit LCD panel that promises huge improvements to picture quality.
If you just bought a brand new Android TV, or a box that runs the Google OS, you probably want to dive straight in and explore all of the new features. You'll notice right away that it's similar to Android for your phone, but built for the big screen. Still, it can occasionally be tricky to navigate. Here are 6 tips to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
CES is kicking off with its traditional showing of really fancy TVs. Combining all the good top-end stuff we're already used to like Dolby Vision HDR with new 'nano cell' tech that reportedly improves colour quality and viewing angles, LG's three newest Super UHD panels are the most advanced the company has produced -- and promise the best ever picture quality from a LCD.
The hugely popular TV show Game of Thrones has two seasons to go; already the showrunners, David Benioff and Daniel Weiss, are speeding towards the endgame. But providing a satisfactory conclusion to a show that has multiple, interweaving storylines and which incorporates both realist and high fantasy elements is no easy task.
When you drop hundreds on an HDTV, you expect it to work out of the box.
