Samsung 85-inch TV is ugly as shit Posted on Monday, January 7th, 2013 at 3:26 pm. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple I love large TVs and was excited when I heard about this big-ass TV, but damn is it ugly. http://twitter.com/studuncan Stu Duncan It’s a sideways door. It needs the Flex Seal treatment. http://twitter.com/sbatwater Sebastian Atwater I just read on Twitter that the frame isn’t even detachable. How the hell do you mount this onto a wall? Where do your various peripherals go? Under the frame? Dammit, Samsung. http://twitter.com/Adamski Adamski I don’t think it’s that bad. But if this stand is not optional and the TV comes this way no matter what then it’s a fail. If this is Samsung’s so-called “New Shape” then that too is a fail as the TV itself is shaped just like any other. http://twitter.com/studuncan Stu Duncan It looks like a sideways door. It needs the Flex Seal treatment. Steven Fisher Quad core? How much power does it draw? dr.no Samsung A15 draws 4W and max 8W with GPU. Steven Fisher Interesting. Seems a heavy additional requirement over the TV, but not unreasonable. Thanks. http://twitter.com/billyrazzle Billy Razzle awful http://www.facebook.com/neal.mcauley Neal McAuley This is what happens when Samsung doesn’t copy from Apple and others. http://digitizedsociety.tumblr.com/ DigitizedSociety Here is what happens when Samsung copies from Microsoft and their kickstand. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=567543450 Billy Liar Does it come with a piece of chalk? M They got their inspiration from a bowl of water guys. It’s so sexy. http://twitter.com/Moeskido Moeskido They call it “minimalist,” which I guess is true if you’re an MBA standing in front of a whiteboard, presenting your pitch for a product design to a room full of C-level sinecures. Kriztyan I thought, how can a TV be ugly? Dam, this thing is bad, really bad. http://twitter.com/RoadRacer DT Turn flat, display picture of table cloth … tada, instant seating expansion for Thanksgiving. http://www.thegraphicmac.com/ JimD I’m left with absolutely nothing to say, except: What the fuck??? I can’t imagine even the wealthiest of people placing this ugly thing in their MTV Cribs-worthy media room. http://twitter.com/bmauter Brian Mauter I don’t get it… GTWilson I admire the effort that went into making a simple rectangular device look so appalling.
