Summary: This tv looks amazing hanging on the wall. That is why a purchased it. When you look at what is offered by this set compared to Samsung, it was a no brainer for me. I essentially purchased it for the sleek form factor. Yes, it has a unique remote, it has "smart" features, it has 3D, but those aren't quite the reasons I purchased it. I am not a hardcore videophile, nor an expert on picture quality. So coming from an average watcher, the picture looks great! That is really all I have to say about it since it's all that matters. The specs can say whatever they want, but at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is what your eyes see, and if they like it then you are golden.
The reasons for buying a tv are purely subjective to the person buying the tv. In my case, I wanted something that looked good when the tv was turned off as well as when it was turned on. The housing being aesthetically pleasing, was high on my tv priority list, and had major pull for me buying either this one or the LM7600. There again simply came down to aesthetics and we preferred the stainless finish of this one over the darker graphite look of the LM7600. Both are essentially the same TV under the hood. A minor TruMotion hz bump from 120 to 240, and better "blacks" (whatever that truly means), but my eyes can't tell and I don't even know if I am that satisfied with these smoothing technologies anyways. I guarantee you, when this tv is the only one you see (most homes have only 1 tv in their room), you will think it looks good.
There seems to be a huge difference from seeing this tv in a brick and mortar store vs seeing it in your own home. It really shines when it is alone. The tv also looks tiny in the store, but huge in your home. 47 inches is PLENTY for me and I sit about 15 feet away from the thing on average. That is of course a subjective feeling too, but for me it seems just fine. The remote works fine, and I wouldn't complain about it. It serves its purpose and I will use it for the smart functions. I use a Logitech remote for most of my A/V equipment, but for "smart" functionality, this magic remote will shine. Its kind of a conversation piece. I wouldn't call it a gimmick as it does work quite well, and is a decent alternative to the standard tap 50 times to input your wireless network key. Yeah you all know what I am talking about too. When you can point to the letters you want on the screen instead of tapping over to each one, you will like the magic remote.
I am sorry this is running longer than expected, I just want to hit most of the bases. The stand is not "overly distracting" as others have noted. I am not using the stand because I wall mounted it. I did set it up on the stand to make sure everything worked and it looked nice sitting there. The stand matches the silver bezel and looks very modern. This may not work for a rustic home, but it isn't overbearing. The minimal framing around the tv is the reason I purchased it. Makes you want to be delicate in handling it, but it does feel very solid.
A quick note on screen reflectivity. It does reflect, but not like a mirror as some people have stated. You can tell efforts were taken to semi gloss the screen. What people need to realize is that when you have a 47"+ piece of glass or plastic staring you in the face, you are bound to see some reflection. The thing is that you want some gloss because this is how you get the clearest picture. I don't know about you, but I have seen iPhones where people put the scratch resistant, finger print proof, anti reflective screen protector on and it greatly reduced their overall screen quality. The iPhone looks best without screen protection. This is the same principle when they put a matte finish on tv screens. The picture will be dulled somewhat to cut down on reflective light.

In conclusion, I hope this review has been somewhat helpful. I aimed to answer some of the questions I had going in. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
