    I have been looking to see the Samsung Frame in person (preferably in the Memphis area). I have called around, and no one seems to have it in stock or on the floor. Can anyone recommend a place that has it?

    What is your local area? I'm looking in both Boston and Memphis and have not found anything on display.

    If you’re up for a six hour round trip drive from and back to Memphis, they are in stock at Best Buy in Little Rock.

    Personal opinion on Frame based on quick glance with my wife. Spoilered to not sway anyone who wants to window shop uninfluenced by outside views :)

    My wife, who is totally cool with my HT gadgets and hobby but who also cares about aesthetics, thought ithe Frame TV on demo looked like a small TV with big bezels compared to the current super-slim bezel TVs. Even our new, mid-budget LG 49" has thinner bezels. I explained to her that the goal with the Frame series is to provide actual "art" framing to fit in with art and/or capture the aesthetic of quality framed artwork. We have custom framed artwork. She still thought the Frame was silly, and chunky looking, and if I'm buying a TV she'd rather have a slim, disappearing bezel.

    So that's a long way to say: if you want this aesthetic, it's there. But if you want your electronics to good looking via minimalism, this isn't the right product.

    I see your point. I'm not 100% sold on the design either, but I do like it for some situations, and I'm actually shopping for my in-laws, as I think they'd like it in their home.
