Samsung The Frame UE55LS003A im Test


Ein Fernseher, der nach der Benutzung unsichtbar wird. Nein, das ist keine Vision aus Zurück in die Zukunft, sondern der Samsung UE55LS003A alias "The Frame". Im Test präsentiert sich der UHD-TV zunächst wie andere Samsung-Modelle mit üppiger...

Schicke Gemäldeoptik dank abstandsloser Wandmontage ; Schönes UHD-Bild ; Umfangreiches und übersichtliches Smart TV

Hohe Zusatzkosten ; Schlechtes Preisleistungs-Verhältnis

Review: Samsung UE55SL003 – The Frame design tv


De Samsung UE55SL003, The Frame, moet je televisie een nieuwe invulling geven. Niet zo maar een fotokader, maar een televisie die dienst doet als volwaardig kunstkader. Met een design dat je zonder aarzelen aan de muur hangt, tussen je andere kaders....

Kunstkader functionaliteit

Sommige instellingen vereisen een smartphone

Samsung had al ervaring met stijl-ontwerpen, denk maar aan de Serif van vorig jaar. Met The Frame gaan ze een stapje verder. Die is niet alleen ontworpen om als stijlicoon te dienen, maar ook met een zeer specifiek doel in gedachte, namelijk dat van...

XXL-TEST: Samsung „The Frame“ 55 Zoll Ultra-HD Design-TV mit „Art Mode“


Der etwas andere Ultra HD-TV: Der Samsung The Frame versteht sich als Design-Fernseher mit im wahrsten Wortsinn künstlerischer Note: Er ist sowohl Kunstwerk als auch UHD-TV. Bevor wir näher auf die Besonderheiten eingehen, klären wir zunächst die...

Ein äußerst interessantes Konzept, das Samsung mit The Frame verwirklicht hat. The Frame ist ein erstklassiger Ultra HD-TV mit gleichermaßen dynamischem und augenfreundlichem Bild. Die Balance ist den Samsung-Entwicklern sehr gut gelungen, das Bild ist...

Love how it doubles up as a picture ...


Good quality HD picture, looks great when it's off and the art work is very good. Ideally best to hide all cables (power and signal) in the wall to get the best effect.

Consumer review (

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!!

Consumer review (

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...
