Samsung's designer Serif TV reaches the US for $1,499

It's only available from the Museum of Modern Art.

How much do you value design over sheer value for money? You're about to find out. Samsung's Serif TV is now available for US pre-orders through the Museum of Modern Art at a price of $1,499 -- given that this is only a 40-inch set, you're clearly paying for the typography-inspired body more than you are the electronics. Not that you aren't getting some decent hardware. The Serif packs a 4K display with high dynamic range color support, and you're getting perks that include an exclusive remote control, detachable legs and a custom interface with a simple "curtain mode" menu. If you're at all interested in this conversation piece, the biggest obstacle may simply be having to wait until it ships in August.
