We first bought a Frame in 2017 when we remodeled our house and hung it over the fireplace. It was a good TV but the art made it a completely awesome animal. Spring forward to this summer and we sold the house and moved. Of course the new owners asked for the TV to be included, which we agreed to. When we got to our new home, one thing we both agreed on was that we wanted another Frame TV. It really is a game changer from the old dumb black screen when folks are over. Doesn't hurt that it also sounds good for a TV which means you really can live without the soundbar or speakers that give away the fact it is a TV.

One of the few purchases we bought again.
Exceeded Our Living Room Design Standards
For years we've had an ultra short throw projector on top of our piano because we don't want to see a TV in our room. So many living rooms are TV centric and that's not what we want. We enjoy TV but we're not glued to it. We've arranged our room for conversation and music. When our projector bit the dust, I found The Frame. I was worried it would still distract too much in our room and be visually imposing, but it's not! It looks like a nice framed picture hanging above our piano with no visible wiring. The sound is incredible for just being a TV (I'm an audio engineer and there's definitely some magic going on) and the picture quality is just fantastic. Not to mention all the intelligent eco settings. I'm so happy we got this TV that is only a TV when it's on. When it's off it's just adding to the design and decor of the room. I'm thrilled Samsung product team / engineers / designers realized not everyone wants a 60" gaping black void at the focal point of their living room!

A nice TV for a non-TV place (Living Room)
I just purchased this TV (QN49LS03RAFXZA) for my Living Room, with the intention of it 'replacing' a piece of art. This is a versatile piece of equipment, though not 100% ready for prime time. The "Art Mode" interface is a bit clunky, and takes a bit of practice to get used to (and even then, not as intuitive as I'd like). The rest of the setup is in the same mode as other Samsung TVs (I have two others), with an external box handling all of the cabling/connectors, and one slender wire providing the TV with power, etc. My main beef is with the actual "frame". The TV doesn't come with the frames that make this actually look like a piece of art hanging on the wall, and they may be purchased separately in a number of colors. Unfortunately, the metal frame that one purchases isn't properly machined to fit well on the TV. I purchased the White frame (VG-SCFN49WM/ZA), and returned it after it didn't fit well (it needed to be forced a bit and even then there was a small gap where there shouldn't have been). I ordered/received another one, and it had the same problem, but I've chosen to live with it (as opposed to returning it), as my assumption is that it won't ever get any better than this (once might've been a mistake, twice implies that all of them have this issue). I'm not sure how the Samsung QC allowed this to happen, but it did. Anyway, I'm generally happy with the TV, less so with the external frame.
Issue With White Line While In Art Mode
I have been extremely pleased with this purchase; however, recently while in art mode, a 1/4 inch white line has appeared towards the top of the tv. It seems that there is an issue with the tv going between art collections you have selected and the total amount of artwork can be displayed at a given time. The silly workaround is to find individual artworks you enjoy and making them your favorite and keep the total under 40. I'm not sure if this also includes personal photos under favorites since I have not tried this yet. So far, there isn't any fixes for this issue; however, there is a string started by a few within the support community. Lets see if Samsung fixes this issue since it really takes away from the feel of an art piece.
Love the flush mount . . . But . .
Hi. This review is for the newbie (like me) who is just transitioning to wall mount and QLED/flat panel. In a nutshell, if you need a flush mount QLED, this is a nice tv. Really opens up a small space having it hung on wall with no need for bulky console. The TV is easy to use for streaming, has nice sound and I love the remote/navigation. But . . .wish I had known: 1) For bright spaces, this does not look like art. It looks like a monitor with a screen saver. The screen is highly reflective. When not in use almost looks like a smoke mirror and on/off you'll see your blinds/glowing lamp on the screen. Probably no different than other new large format, but not the case with my older TV. Physical/advertising display not representative. 2) The TV frame will not stay pressed up against the wall if you do not have perfect receptacle in back or perfectly straight walls - but it is close. 3) Can't find the setting that lets you just watch the same lapping waves, or moving scene. Thought that came with the TV. 4) Pre-programmed art probably has a color scheme for everyone, but selection is very limited. Wish company would allow at least one personalized selection without additional cost as other QLEDs are cheaper and it's the whole point of the TV. 5) Can't figure out how to default to art mode when turning tv back on - so need to keep clicking through to art mode each time. 6) The motion sensor is not working as expected but maybe I just need to fiddle with it. I do love art though, so if they expand the library, beef up the artist profiles, and keep it affordable/convenient I will be happy.
Pretty fair tv except when it comes on it makes a lot of music extra noise. Then the lady comes on and talks some more and when you raise and lower the volume she has to tell you the volume number like I can't tell when it is too loud or not loud enough. Other than that it has a great picture and I like it very well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Great Picture in TV Mode, but not in Art Mode
I just bought the 43 inch version, and while the picture in TV mode is great, in the Art Mode it is very dim. Unfortunately the only way to change the brightness is using the SmartView app on your phone, and that does not work either, in that it will not link up with the TV. Nor does the SmartThings app connect with the TV. I spent an hour on the phone with tech support and that did not correct the problem. I'm guessing that the 2019 version of the Frame with the QLED screen was not well tested with the firmware and both of the apps. I hope this is corrected soon.
This screen is amazing.The promotion did not come with the frame. It was disappointing to find out.Some of the apps do not support on Samsung.The voice control is not accurate.It needs to have a smoother control.Overall I am happy with purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
TV great but no wall-mount screws
After 90 minutes on the phone, the TV doesn't come with F&G screws (dry wall anchors), which is incredulous. The TV is great, but a separate trip to home store to get anchors needs to be apparent. This would have been easy to do and set up if it had the F & G anchors. UGH!
Good if you don't use wireless or android app.
The TV looks great but wireless connection kept getting disconnected after a long period of being turned off. I would have to unplug the tv or redo all the wireless settings. Switching to a wired connection fixed the issue but isn't ideal. Also, the Smart view app cannot find the TV on android and I have not been able to load my pictures on the TV.
