I think this is a fair question and didn't deserve the down votes. This TV mounts totally flush to the wall and has interchangeable bezels to match your decor. It also has an art mode that shows paintings in a slideshow, but only has 100 paintings in 10 categories so if you prefer a certain style, you may only have 10 options. You can buy more from Samsung, of course. Given that there are a ton of iconic public domain paintings that Samsung could use for free, only loading 100 seems like a money grab on an already expensive set.
They consolidated all the input cables into one cable but that means all your stuff has to connect to a box somewhere. You still have an input and power cable to hide, so I'm not sure it really helps that much unless you have a TON of inputs.
It seems nice, but a sizable markup for what are essentially cosmetic issues.

I have this and I got a few problems with it -- too bad we can't return it since its just a gift.

Anyway -- this back light bleed on this thing is really bad.

Also, you need an app to upload your custom pictures and it won't let us since its a known issue and Samsung is still working on the fix.

Lastly, the motion sensor is also bad. I have to turn on the lights then move in order for the painting to show up.

I looked at one of this line of TVs for our living room because it has a high Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF). TVs are banned from our living room because they look like TVs and are kind of ugly with mounts and (unless hidden) cables and such. However, this style could be acceptable. Buying it would be paying up for style, which, as a function over form guy, I normally don't do, but sometimes it is worth it.

Its arrangement is interesting, with a box separate from the display providing all the connectivity and processing. A single thin cable (less than pencil sized) up to 15 meters long provides power and data to the display. Depending on your situation, this might be an advantage over a typical television that has all the connections on the display.

Doesn't have to be constant. There is a motion detector and will display art when there's movement

And is there a sensor to control the intensity of the backlight? Also if it's at night and it senses a pet dog, will it illuminate even though we're sleeping?

i was looking at rtings.com and the 43 does not support variable refresh rates and only a 60hz panel. I was interested in 120hz and VRR because it would be great for a pc monitor. The viewing angles are not so great but im okay with that. If you are considering using it as a pc monitor too, you would need a 55 inch or bigger for the earlier mentioned specs.

No TV will do 120hz as a PC monitor. All TVs out there with 120hz or more is not a true refresh rate like you would see in a gaming monitor. 60hz is the best you'll find at 4k for a TV when using it as a PC monitor. Just making sure you are aware of that.

However you can do 1080p 120hz on the LG OLEDs (and the sonys that use same panel), Qdot Samsungs, and P series Vizio
