Curved TVs aren’t any good , they reflect light and it’s bloody annoying

Think this model is cheaper at sainsburys,
Saw one in my local today
I thought curved gave better viewing angle?

Every TV reflects light. Curved TVs aren't any more reflective than flat ones.

Specifically the issue with curved TVs is that they stretch reflections, so the reflection from a light source is a larger patch on screen.

That depends on your requirements, but it's nothing special generally.
I believe a couple of manufacturers will cease making curved tv's.
Polaroid and Alba didn't make them in the first place...
curved screen biggest gimmick that there's ever been in tv history! why hasn't it just died already!

Nice to look at straight on if they're large or you're close to a small one. If you think about it curved makes sense as the wider a flat screen is the image would become distorted. However you'd need a pretty big flat screen to see the difference.

That said, curved viewing angles are odd if you're sat off-centre.

It's not pointless, just not massively practical in reality methinks

If you could bring yourself to pay that little bit extra and get yourself a curved one you'd find out that they are actually fantastic. Until that day you'll continue to comment negatively on every curved tv thread you see - enjoy

Sorry I assumed your inlaws didn't have a curved TV - pardon me I should have asked before making this foolish assumption. Is there any pattern to your use of words in block capitals or is it just random?

it's so they stick out at the right time,didn't you learn that from school at all or were you too busy watching your gimmick tv lol
in summary of the tests.
So, out of the three TVs, the best set was the 4K, flat one. It still gives you the lasting satisfaction and future-proofing of 4K without the short-lived and expensive thrills of going curved.

Well at least your words stick out at the right time - I'm assuming from your pent up aggression that it's the only thing of yours that does

you assume quite a lot don't you?
and you know what assuming does buddy.
ASS out of U and ME
have a good evening.
While curved is a gimmick, I got one as it was the only tv at the time to suit my requirements and I actually like it.
It's a small tv for the bedroom so only viewed from one position. Even the Mrs has commented it makes a tiny difference and she likes it too
*the Mrs is usually oblivious to anything tech.

Kevin, I'd say not, this TV has been significantly cheaper in the past: hotukdeals.com/dea…958

Although none of us has a time machine, it must be worth holding out for a lower price than this if this is what you're looking for.

BUT for this money you get the flat version of Samusng's next TV up: cramptonandmoore.co.uk/tel…tml better colours, higher peak brightness, although unfortunately a slightly dodgy IPS panel with risk of light bleed, so you have to get lucky.

Price match at John Lewis for a 5 guarantee too

I don't think curved is a gimmick. I think I get more depth to the image and as for reflections it's no worse than my previously flat set

I should have said have ceased....... Sony and LG.

It's may be a manufacturing defect in plant or accidental innovation, so they trying to sell by bluffing and misguiding people, curved is basically all waste LCD in production

,
Might just bend my flat screen TV to make it move curved?
I have this, everyone moaning about the curve obviously hasnt spent much time watching one, the curve is barely noticeable, to the extent where you forget its even curved in the first place!

Don't know about that, but I've a curved LG & it's great. The curve is very gentle (as kieran77777 says), almost unnoticeable, especially if TV is sat in a corner.

So, as long as it's going in a corner & there aren't any windows or bright lights behind the watchers (as I have it set up), it's absolutely fine. Not a single person has had anything negative to say about it. Has got only compliments.

Mine is a 4K OLED too, so picture quality is quite amazing as well.
