Re: Idiot marketing people at work again
Ultimately televisions will end up with no bezel at all - they get smaller every year. That really only leaves the stand (if the set is not wall mounted) and the sound bar / speakers.
As for what the wall behind the television looks like, that depends upon the owner. To illuminate the room at low level, a lamp behind the TV is sensible as it can't cast reflections upon the screen. Then there's the people who like Phillips' TVs which illuminate the wall behind the TV in sympathy with the displayed video.
For watching TV during the day, buy Samsung. For watching movies in dark rooms, buy an OLED from LG or Sony. (Samsung's invention of the term QLED would appear designed purely to confuse consumers - it's just an LED set with a quantum dot filter).
For many home owners, their chief question is 'how can I make the television disappear when we're not watching it?' - a large black rectangle doesn't sit well with many decor schemes. Jony Ive used the term 'black mirror' when designing the 20th Anniversary Mac and was considering ways of hiding the screen when the computer was not in use.
