Thinnest (or closest to wall when installed) TV

Hi all,

I had a different thread about a tv in bright room.

Slightly different topic.

I am looking for a TV that can be installed as flush as possible to the wall.

The obvious candidates are the LG Wallpaper (has anyone installed this with the cable in the wall), the Samsung Frame and LG Gallery(?)

What are other options?

Or is the bracket the main driver of how close to the wall it can be? I’d also want to feed the cables in the wall so they can come out below where the tv unit is located.

Any recommendations of installers in melbourne?

  • Can you create a recess in wall?
    .

  • I installed a 65" Samsung Frame yesterday and it looks pretty neat IMO. There was a small gap(more like a buckle) between the TV frame and wall but I used 4 x 3M Velcro bits on either end and now it looks 100% flush. I had the oneconnect box in a recess that I built behind the TV (with power and cat6) so no wires are visible.

      Do you mind showing us some pictures of what you mean here?

      That oneconnect box is definitely pretty cool! How do you access it behind the TV when you need to plug something in? I've left mine out, but away from the screen itself so I can plug things in, but if you've got a better way, I might steal your idea! LOL

        In my setting it is supposed to be a one big photo frame on a photo wall surrounded by 'real' photos. Something like this I wanted the whole thing to look clean with nothing but photos on that wall. Inside the cavity the oneconnect box already has power and data so anything I need to display I get that way (photos and videos from my NAS etc.) thus eliminating the need for having to plug things.

        It was a bit loose around the hinge when it hangs from the wallmount. Nothing major so I used 4 small bits of velcro on the 4 corners to push it against the wall.

          You never have to plug a HDMI cable in? Like one from the laptop display or cameras or anything or even a temporary gaming console like a PS4 etc?
          Even my soundbar is plugged in via HDMI (even though it has optical and bluetooth support) so that the ARC connection can work.

          I'd really like to hide that box behind the screen, but I'd hate to have to move the screen back and forth to plug something in.

          • @bobbified: Of course you need access to the oneconnect box then. I have another TV elsewhere in a more traditional setting for all of the above purposes you've mentioned. The Frame has only one purpose in my case - A large photo frame on a photo wall with occasional TV/Media watching.

  • LG GX when mounted with matching mount.

    I decided against it because there isn't room for ambience lighting with Hue Sync.

  • I have a Samsung Q7 mounted with this wallmount.

    I also didn't need to feed the cables into the wall because it uses the One Connect box which is just one thin cable into the TV.

    • Nice one.

      Even though it’s one cable, I’d still like it hidden.

      Does the one connect box on the q7 carry power to the tv?

      • Yeah all power, sound and vision. You hide the connect box in your TV unit.

        I opted for the QLED because it's in a bright room which handles it better than an OLED.

  • I’m keen on an OLED, keen to hear people’s experience with brands that sell this type (Sony etc)

    • OLED is great, and the LG CX is currently pick of the litter; however, while the panel itself is extremely thin, it has a thickened section in the bottom 1/3 where LG stores all the internals so you'll never have a zero gap wall mount unlike some other popular TVs like Samsung Q series.

      If you want an OLED that mounts essentially flush with the wall.

      Samsung’s Frame TVs are good if your goal (like someone else said) is to hide the TV as a picture on the wall. The GX will give you the best picture quality, aside from reflections in brightly lit environments, of any TV that can be mounted this closely to the wall.
