Curved TV's are for gullible mugs.

What that has to do with whether this is a good deal or not, compared to the normal price of this TV, I do not know

Probably because they are trying to flog technology that is used on an IMAX screen (to make all of the screen equal distance from your eyes) in a home environment. It isn't necessary because you sit far closer and the screen is far smaller. It's the biggest gimmick since 3dtv and gives you a tv that's dreadful unless you sit directly in front of it. Or so the reviews tell me.

well I would not bother as only the person directly in front of it gets a proper view and for everyone else it is oddly distorted, and if you wall mount then chances are everyone has distortion due to edge heights and curve

Exaggerates reflections
Limits viewing angles
Look stupid on a wall (if that's your thing)
You need to sit directly in front of it to get the so called "benefits" of the curve
I've been to cinemas that dont have curved screens.

What neXT smart watches .........

1080p only for that size = not very good picture quality. watching 1080p on that size is like watching standard TV on a 32" LCD panel.
Plus being curved as many said will distort the image in most sitting positions.

overall not a good deal in my PoV
