For its latest televisions, Samsung is touting the gesture controls you use to operate the sets. In case you weren’t paying attention to this innovation, the company is hoping that its new “Seductive Motion” ad featuring suggestively clad model Angela Bellotte will grab your eye and motivate you to buy one of its TVs.

Judge the ad (video below) for yourself. But when it comes to the gesture controls themselves, we feel that for now they’re more sizzle than steak. Still, some Samsung sets with gesture controls have done well in our latest Ratings of TVs. The Samsung UN55ES8000 55-inch LCD 3D TV, $ 2,900, earned a very good overall score. But you can spend a lot less for comparable performance—if you can live without advanced controls and design. A $ 1,550 Panasonic TV outperformed that Samsung, and a $ 1,700 LG earned nearly as high a score.

Updated software could improve the minor glitches with the Samsung gesture controls, perhaps allowing them to go beyond the ad campaign ,and become more than just eye candy.
