Samsung The Frame UE55LS03N

A bit late with the review but it might be helpful for someone who will buy some subsequent model in the near future. Bought it for SEK 9900 on Christmas sale 2018 and it has undoubtedly been worth it! IF you intend to have it hung like a painting on the wall, Peo agrees that if it is to stand on a bench, you can rather choose another TV. I have it as a bedroom TV on a wall completely without other furniture so it was important to me that the TV should be discreet. Well it is maybe a little too thick to fool anyone that it would be a painting but compared to other models it still feels very discreet. Due to the area of use, maximum image quality per krone was not the most important thing to me, which it would otherwise be, but I am still very pleased with the picture, as well as the sound. The minimal remote control with just a few buttons along with the fairly simple but agile menu system on the TV is very good, at least for what I do. If you are still using teletext and the like, it may not be optimal with so few buttons. I have always been against the concept of smart TV and run with external boxes and HTPC where I myself can control and can update when needed, but this caused me a lot of positive. I exclusively use the TV for Youtube, Netflix, Plex and Chromecast, all of which still work clockwise now a year after purchase but remain to see how it will be updated in the future. Samsung's concept of just a long thin cable to an external box is amazingly smooth. The only stupid thing is that even though the cable is very thin about 3mm, the connector itself is quite bulky about 25mm, which means that it is not possible to drill a small hole behind the TV through a wall and stick through the cable as I intended to do. You are also a bit limited where and in what directions you can let the cable leave the TV because you are not allowed to bend the optical cable in reverse and there are not so many channels / spaces on the back to pull it in. It became a star deduction most Due to the cable handling, a bit contradictory as the cable is also one of the strengths with the TV. Agree that the whiteboard effects are not optimal. They do not fool anyone that it is a blackboard but are better than a still image on a regular TV and the setting options are quite limited and cumbersome. Can't remember I felt it would be unstable or creaky when we hung it up, as Cocorocko wrote. I think it has good build quality.

Finally, it was time to replace my old Philips SBCHP1000, which began to break after about 12 years. Well, above all, Sennheiser was the option but eventually chose to stay at Philips when I loved my old ones, they sounded and felt quite ok at a quick test and they have also received a lot of positive reviews all over the world. I think the building quality feels great, they are good at wearing longer times and the sound is good, but it's a flavor. I do not understand those who say they are bad or have too much / sharp treble. I also do not like any of it but do not experience it from these naps. I like a nice warm, easy-to-listen sound, which for me means prominent midrange. I'm not an audio file though, so maybe they hear something my ears do not understand, or maybe it's the source that color the sound. I start with a 9 in grade so they have the opportunity to grow a bit with the years my old cheeks did. :)

When I wanted to fit the speakers under the monitors, the supply was quite limited. After reading many tests, the choice fell on them and I am extremely satisfied. Can play loud and powerful to be so small and the sound image I think fits "computer speakers" as they do not go away too much in any direction but are quite easy to read. Very good construction quality, no "plastic bag". I have them white and they see them much more premium than plastic gray / black computer speakers do not do anything. All I have to note is that the volume control that also operates the switch is on the back. This makes for a clean and tidy look, but it is a bit worn to access it when it is under the monitors. Draws one star for volume control and one for the price.

2018-08-03: Has now had two more for another 4 years. Have had them connected in series with a lot of gadgets in them. Has what I can remember still has not had a single unplanned reboot so is extremely satisfied. Now, this model does not seem to be buying anymore, but hope this cavity is representative of other Netgear products in this segment. 2014-07-22: Have had it for 1.5 years now and it has always worked clockwise, not a single unplanned reboot. Do 2 computers have 1 HTPC and 1 NAS connected to it. Small fluffy butt and does not emit much heat. Nothing to hesitate at that price! Have just ordered one more.

Feels well built apart from the small button on the cord that you switch device with. Smooth that it's small and pretty but at the same time it's the only part to pillar on, so if something breaks, it'll be the one. Switching between devices is fast and I have not experienced any problems just that it would not respond or so. Have no experience with others like this so can not say if it is better or worse but since I do not have any problems then there will be a 9 in grade. Tears of a star for the plastic button and one for the price, so I can not imagine that such a mojäng contains electronics that motivate it. :)

Have had it for a couple of years without a problem. Used quite diligently for HTPC. Works equally well to a little heavier surfing and writing like controlling Kodi, Plex, Netflix, etc. Do not weigh so much and have areas that you can get a good grip on. The Touchpad works fine to control the mouse pointer, but double scroll for zoom, pinch for zoom and so on, but it may be a little whimsical sometimes. Battery consumption is fully acceptable. Has the white version and it may become a bit tacky and after a while when you eat chips and watch movies, it's easy to clean it with a slightly damp cloth so it looks like new after a couple of years of use.

It's a printer, the kind of dullest thing I know in electronics, so there will be no long review here. :) It does what it's supposed to be and considering the price it's all right. Have it connected via network cable but have not been any problems when I drove via wifi either. Perfect to hide on the pull-out shelf in IKEA Pax wardrobe. :)

I had at home Bose Quiet Comfort 35, Plantronics BackBeat Pro (Sennheiser Momentum M2, Sennheiser PXC 500 and Sony MDR-1000X at the same time to compare. Bose is so good that I had bought home just them, I had been so pleased that I had kept them. So I'm glad I did not do that side by side, so Sony won quite easily. Bose was more beautiful to wear, but Sony was good two just a little snap after. Boses construction where the diaphragms are angled inside the hoods is what made them snap more beautiful, feels like the ear does not touch the napkins at all and thus neither gets sore or hot. On all other points, though, Sony thought I was best or in any case shared, so overall it was not a hard choice. Sony had the nicest sound image (at least unplayed), and then I was not looking for unscrambled reference songs without a comfortable sound image that works for many genres and is not hard to listen for 15 hours on a long long flight. They also had the best noise reduction and most / best features. Just the function of folding your hand over one handset to temporarily switch from active noise reduction to speech amplification could bring the decision down now that I know how useful it is.

I have these napkins at work and as far as noise and noise reduction are concerned they are good at it but they are not very well-being, they are quickly hot on the ears and the function that they turn off by turning a cover is a design gimmick that is very bad in practice . It's good that as the headset is pairing both with computer and mobile at the same time, never got a phone call while I had Skype / Hangouts conversation running so I do not really know how they react.
