It is a great price for this tv, I would try and get John Lewis to price match for their great service and guarantee. I am delighted with my 4k Samsung tv not this one but one down from this with a flat screen and it is brilliant, I would expect this to be that little bit better.

Heat.

personally I think curved TV are a gimic ...

Same price at 123av....

I agree its a gimick

Gimmick

(want to be different could be one), I saw a difference when 0.75m away from it, I realised is curved

What if your tv is wall mounted? How far off will it 'curve' doesn't seem a necessary feature, won't last as long as 3d

Is it halal?

they are curved so you can paint behind the wall easier, when you come to redecorate.

Or buy it from Currys or John Lewis for £200 more but get 5 year warranty and free M5 wireless speaker as well.

I love how the resident HUKD TV experts can declare curved TV's a gimmick without probably ever seeing one of them in action. For large TV's it's a more important factor to look for over 4K - which needs to be ignored as a main buying benefactor until we actually start getting 4K broadcasts (years and years away), or at the very least, blu-rays.

Please, read the following and educate yourself before ignorantly declaring technology people who know a lot more than you obviously didn't just create for ****'s and giggles!

Due to its curved design, Curved OLED TVs have several advantages. First … Due to its curved design, Curved OLED TVs have several advantages. First of all, the biggest characteristic of the Curved OLED TV is its ability to enhance the viewer’s immersive experience with its curved form. Because the screen ‘wraps around’ the viewer, the viewer gets the feeling of stability and being immersed in the image as if he/she is at the amphitheater.The curved form of the screen is similar to the ‘Horopter Line’ seen by human eyes. The ‘Horopter Line’ refers to the hypothetical line connecting the dots one sees as being in the same focal distance when our eyes focus on an image.This means that curved OLED TVs have a screen with a curved trajectory similar to a person’s ‘Horopter Line’ allowing the maintenance of a constant focus, and because of this, the viewer can enjoy more comfortable viewing without tiring their eyes.Second, the distance of viewer’s gaze between the center of the screen and each end of the screen isn’t steep due to the gradually curved form of the Curved OLED TV. For example when watching a flat screen TV, the viewer’s gaze when sitting in front of the center of the screen would require more distance when watching each ends of the screen, compared to the middle of the screen.The viewer will not sense a big difference because he/she sees the center and end of the screen at the same time, but in reality, there is a subtle distortion of image and color due to this distance. The larger the screen and the closer the distance from the screen, the distortion becomes more noticeable.In comparison, for Curved OLEDs, the center of the screen that is closest to the viewer’s eyes is pushed back and the farthest ends of the screen are bent forward, the distance between the viewer’s eyes and every point of the screen can be maintained almost the same!Because of this, we can enjoy more realistic images without color or image distortion. This difference in the form also affects the expression of 3D images. In case of Curved OLED TVs, the user can enjoy more realistic and comfortable viewing of 3D images since the 3D depth at any point of the screen is the same, as the distance between the user’s eyes to the any point on the screen is also kept the same.Thirdly, Curved OLEDs compared to flat screen TVs of the same size feels larger and brighter, resulting in the immersive experience similar to that of the movie theater. Though the sizes may be the same, a curved screen offers a larger viewing angle than a flat screen, and therefore, the viewer will feel that the size of a curved TV screen is larger than its actual size. Curved OLED TV also feels brighter because the light coming from the screen is focused on the center of the screen.

IMO curved TV's are not a gimmick, I have seen them personally and was very surprised at how pleasant they are, I much preferred them although it could have been due to the lovely 4K content aswell, which certainly helped the viewing experience.. I certainly wouldn't hesitate buying one!

Very gimmicky, the field of view only benefits the TV when in an enclosed space with few people huddled close to the TV. As more people attempt to watch from various angles and distances the benefits of the curve are negated and are actually worse for the field of view.

Half of the quoted text is marketing rubbish... "feeling", "immersion", etc. That said, I am willing to accept that if a single viewer sits at the perfect position, dead in the centre and at the exact distance that matches the curvature of the screen for the ‘Horopter Line’, then the curved screen may indeed have benefits.

The problems however is that if your sitting position is not dead centre, or even worse if you do not always watch tv alone, then the curve becomes a drawback.

Yeah I agree and a total no go for me as it will look ridiculous wall mounted, ideal for people that do not want to wall mount however.

Ahahaha, I laughed way more than I should have at this XD.

Will be a great pairing for those with a iPhone 6 that have a curved back....

Just what ive been looking for.Love curved tv worth every penny along with 4k.Viewed one and can honestly say I'm hooked the curved screen really works.Time to see if John lewis will play ball.

Useless if you have a family or large sofa. Only good for one or two people sitting in central viewing angle - I'd argue very gimmicky, but each to their own. Also, no use in paying extra for 4k at the moment as nothing is available to view.

I have the 55" 8500 and the curve adds a little but not a huge amount. It's a little more noticeable with 4K content though.
As a TV consoles look great with the 4K upscale, as do reference Blu Rays like Oblivion. It's certainly the best TV I've owned, better than my Panasonic ST60 plasma.
4K Blu Ray was also announced yesterday but won't be out in force till late 2015. Until then it's still limited streaming.

Its "wrap-around" curved display is for immersion people. When watching footy you will feel like you're on the pitch. When watching films you will feel like things are coming out of the screen or that YOU are in the screen!

Best example i can think of is: imagine it's cold and you need a blanket. If you just put the blanket on your head it's not bad but you don't get the full "wrap-around" warmth benefits. Now if instead you use the blanket in a "wrap-around" fashion (similar to a curved screen) you will get the full warmth of the blanket or in other words the full "warmth immersion" of the blanket. I believe this is where the word 'Immersion heater' comes from. It's science really. So anyway, that's why curved screens are better, unless you are sitting to the side in which case it will be like watching TV with one eye closed.

when is 4kCurved™ BluRay out?
