Which Best Buy

Absolutely no need to curve a TV, just a ridiculous marketing gimmick

Absolutely no need to curve a TV, just a ridiculous marketing gimmick


Dunno about that, I think the viewing angles are pretty good - and a decent picture as well

The majority of people that say curved TVs is a gimmick are the people who have never experience one!!

This looks like the perfect size for a PC monitor so viewing angle will be a non-issue. I can't seem to find a single review that mentions it's input lag though.

4k on a curved 40in screen is pretty pointless.

In order for the curve to not distort the image, the optimum viewing distance is the curvature radius, which on this set is 3000mm, or 3 metres.
However, in order to visually see the difference between 4k and 1080p on a 40in set, that's actually ~1-1.5 metres.

So either the 4k is pointless as you won't actually be able to see the difference, or you'll sit too close and the curve will distort your view of the image.

this any good @ £459.99

Has anyone noticed that Gru in Dispicable Me had a curved TV and that was in 2010 some 4 years before they came to market.

good to see Samsung now have Wifi built in

The samsung dongles are £35+ which you need to factor in for some TVs

Like Technohunter, I'd be interested in any review that tests this TV as a monitor and / or provides more details on the specs. It only says HDMI; which version (2.0 is needed to get 4k @ 60Hz). Does it have 4:4:4 chroma sub sampling? What's the input lag?

I have the slightly bigger version of this one, the picture is amazing for still images. Still good for moving stuff but you can detect some degradation on the picture quality when the motion begins to ramp up.

I have a Samsung Curved TV and wouldn't get another one. The reflection from the window makes it un-watchable if your sitting directly in front.

​that should of said if your NOT sitting directly in front.

Thanks for Posting OP. I've been meaning to get one of these ever since they first came out. But the one I want (60") is still nearly the same price as it was then!

I've been looking at the similar model KU6400 (49") but the 60hz refresh rate concerns me as I've read movie judder will be present. This model will suffer from a similar problem too, how bad would it be? Is it only worth sticking to 120hz TV's?

​damn, that's some good research oO

How do you get Netflix 4k streaming? I've a 4k tv with Netflix on and that doesnt stream 4k.
Amazon only have a few programs still that are 4k.

You have to pay extra.....there is a reason these companies don't have a lot of 4K....not only does it use a boat load of bandwidth but 4K take up is still slow

No problem

I tempted by this but what's the curved screen about/benefits?

is there any point buying 4k presently as no tv channel is 4k (is it) with only a small selection of HD channels presently.
Not really seen many 4k blurays either

presumably will be 5-10Y before it takes off and by then 4k tvs will be half the present price

Look up "Sky Q" on google, its already broadcasting 4k..

Not quite correct, especially when you look at OLED - viewing angles are far superior to LCD VA panels which are around 40 degrees...

They also reduce reflections from artificial and natural light sources.

Curved TVs is becomming obsolete already. (_;)
Hence the price cuts.
And if you go to show rooms the most top of the range,premium TVs are flat ones not curved.
it was a purely commercial gimmick that lasted very short time with zero benefit.

...They also reduce reflections from artificial and natural light sources.



No they don't. The reflection gets trapped by the screen, and as opposed to a seeing a simple, mirror type refection, the reflection goes from one side of the screen to the other, unless you are sitting directly in front of it that is. That's real world experiences (and regrets), not marketing speak.

Look at the image below to see how the reflection of the lamp shade is ghosted across the entire width of the TV (not my image, I had to go back to flat!)

People do talk some nonsense on here. Reductions are purely because the first range of curved TVs is now end of life, new models are coming in to replace.

Some thoughts:

1) Anditails is right - this TV is pretty pointless.
2) 4k is pretty pointless in your average living room unless you're on upwards of about 55 inches.
3) HDR should make a difference at any size. The extra colour depth and contrast is more of value on a smaller TV than the actual resolution.
4) Curved TVs suit some deployments better than others. I went from a 46" flat plasma to a 55" curved OLED and the table lamp reflection that always annoyed me has now gone. This is a combination of the curved surface and the OLED panel being less reflective.
5) Viewing angle on all Samsung TVs is poor, curved or flat. OK for people who live alone but not recommend for a family set-up. Straight on they give a better picture than many equivalents but as soon as you move to the side they are worst in class.

They absolutely do - I've had both an LG 55EC930V (OLED) and a Panasonic 55CX802 (LED) - both premium TVs. The LG was far superior to the Panasonic and both were positioned in the same area - lighting in same area too. I'm thinking it may have something to do with OLED being far superior in both colour and black reproduction.

There's hardly a TV out there that won't reflect light that isn't behind it - if you've found one, let me know will you?!

If that photo was taken with the TV on it would be rather different

I am sure this outputs a decent quality picture and would be nice as an overgrown monitor or such but agree with all of the above. Op you are better off buying a decent 40" model for less money and avoiding the added problem of screen reflection. Curved Tv's are a bit of a gimmick but on larger sets can give results!

That said, if you do have a 4k set, Netflix is currently the best source of quality 4k programming at the minute in my opinion. I haven't yet signed up with Sky Q though, so other than the football, I'm not too sure whether they're putting lots out at the minute.
