When I saw this last month, I was very interested in owning the product, yet the practical side of my brain was saying 'uh, no'. Let me explain what this is first before discussing the positives/negatives.
Frame, by Depict, is a 50" 4K TV that's different than your typical 4K TV. How so? Well, it's not for watching TV for starters. It's a TV exclusively for viewing art.
Frame solves a problem that not many people actually have. But if you do want to show your own work, or show others' work in your home/office, therein lies the problem: how do you present your work in your home in an elegant fashion? A computer is nice, but its small. An iPad is awesome, but its even smaller. A TV would be the ideal size, but the picture quality is often complete garbage: the colors are tuned for TV programming, the height of the TV is based on your TV viewing experience, the resolution is crap compared to your typical computer or iPad, plus the viewing angles are often lacking. Frame helps solve those problems by giving you a 4K TV (super-high resolution) that's supposed to be a dedicated viewer. It's not meant for TV or video games, it's meant to be mounted in one location and be viewed.
So for my uses, that's an awesome way to present my work to others. It turns 90º so you can have art that's also in portrait orientation shown in the correct fashion. It's connected so you can easily get your work onto it. It's also connected to a network of artists so you can easily display other works of art and rotate them out when the old work is feeling stale. It's wild!
It's also very, very expensive. Frame comes in at $1,800. That's a lot of money for something that can't be used as a TV as well. I know you wouldn't really want to use it as a TV, but there's just so much technology in there that not using it for other purposes feels like a waste! And while we're talking about the cost, at the time of this writing, a 50" Samsung 4K TV is priced at $1,800 while a 50" Vizio 4K TV is $750. I'm willing to bet the Vizio doesn't outperform the Samsung, but are we willing to suggest the Samsung and the Frame outperforms the Vizio by a factor of 2? Heck, for the price of the Vizio I could buy 2 of them - use one for my regular TV and one for 'Frame-like' art viewing. See, the 4K thing is what makes all of this possibility anyway. If you walk through the TV section of your local gadget store, you'll find that while 3D and curved displays are gimmicks, 4K is just the opposite. 4K is the closest to a DSLR or Mirrorless camera's native resolution we've gotten to on a large display. Just increasing the size of the display doesn't make it better (in fact, spanning 1920x1080 over 70" vs 50" makes the display arguably worse, not better), but now that we're dealing with pixel dimensions of 3840x2160 in the same physical space as we're used to seeing that low resolution, the images look so much better.
Will I be buying the Frame? No. I really like the concept of the Frame, but the high price combined with the feeling that most of the technology is being wasted makes me want to seek out my own solution for displaying art on my walls.
