I've seen pictures of other people's mounted on wall and they don't look very pronounced.

55" now also has £350 off!!
Sorry, Is this a top end model. Is this better or going for the 55inch LG B7 OLED (1349 in JL) or the 58inch Panasonic VIERA B802 for 899 in JL?? Please advise.

£899!

Curved TVs have clearly been unpopular this year!

Hi TTSS

This is a mid-range TV, Samsung's attempt to compete with OLED is QLED.

It is curved and 65", so difficult to compare with the 55" LG OLED or the 58" Panasonic.

The Panasonic is fairly old (2016) and makes a number of compromises in terms of HDR implementation.

The LG OLED is extremely highly rated, so if you have £1349 and want a flat 55" panel, then go for that.
There was a 65" QLED selling on their website for £1299.. I was too late tho.. So many curved tv deals coming out recently and I have done some research. Apparently they have limited viewing angles and light reflections but there are also some pros.. Don't know what to do now lol.

Thank you.
Other than the latest QLEDs. This MU9000 is fairly up the range? comparing the other models like MU 7000,8000 etc (assuming MU9000 would have more features than the lower numbers).
Also curved TVs. Why are they less popular. Do they have any defects compared to flat ones.

I was about to pull the trigger on another 65" to upgrade a really cheap one and Im really stuck now also..... got JL to price match a 65MU7000 for 1099.

So do I go for the 65mu7000 for 1099 or a slightly upgraded 65mu9000 but curved for 100 more??

As a note for anyone else I believe the mu9000 is essentially an mu8000 but curved....

I believe the mu9000 is a curved mu8000..... in Europe anyways.

Oh that is all? I thought there would some improvements as the numbering goes up.

The numbering system for Europe is terrible, makes sense in North America as I think the x500 are the curved versions, where as over here they increment by a full 1000.

Same for the LG OLED range, B7 etc, all use same panel and SoC. Differences are mainly design amd inclusive of soundbars etc.

I have a DX902, hard to get hold of now but I would recommend an OLED over a lower specced LED.

No problem.

Yes the MU9000s are the rung below QLEDs in Samsung's range.

8000s and 9000s are very close in terms of spec. 10 bit panels, closer to full HDR brightness. 7000s are a bit of step down but still rated highly.

Curved TV's as cr7hg says have a bad reputation for viewing angles. I think they probably make could bedroom TVs, but perhaps not for the lounge. Trusted Reviews quite liked the 55" version of this TV: trustedreviews.com/rev…000

No it's not. You got to be looking at a QLED. I had a curved 65''OLED and didn't like it so sent it back. Currently looking for a flat 65'' QLED but being s tight arse I don't want to pay over £1500

From what im gathering online, seems like the mu7000 is preferred over the 9000. I'd love to find a 65KS8000 but I think that ship has sailed for reasonable prices.

"That said, issues with reflections on the MU9000's curved screen and some unusually (by Samsung standards) noticeable backlight clouding flaws ultimately make it only a good rather than great TV. With that in mind, the not-curved and more affordable MU7000 is the more logical purchase.
...

Although it can't hit the same black level depths and contrast extremes of the more expensive MU9000, the flat-screen MU7000 arguably delivers more consistent and thus immersive pictures - despite costing significantly less."

via pocket-lint mu9000 review


But for £100 difference the 9000 does offer better blacks, upgraded processing, and nicer design/smaller bezel.....

That was turned until the q6 came out. Samsung puts it slightly above the 7000, but below the 8000.

So the curve is not that significant? Can it be wall mounted. Would it look ugly.
Don't know if I should get this now or wait for q7, q8, q9 to be discontinued in a few months and hope for some bargains.

No I wouldn’t mount on to a wall tbh but I’ve got some super fancy stand still from my old telly plus I don’t like looking up at a tv like it in front and even when laying on sofa at a angle it’s still perfect picture .. no need to find what they call the sweet spot with this tv

Thanks for the info this is good to hear....I was sort of gambling with this purchase. But at this price I felt it was worth it.
I plan on mounting mine to the wall though....do you see any real problems with this? They fit standard vesa mounts

Tbh mate don’t know if I’d like the look of it mounted on the wall even though it only has a slight curve ... so can’t really help with that as mine is just on a stand

I received it at the beginning of the week but the mount arrives on Monday unfortunately so haven't had a chance to put it up yet. I will as soon as it arrives. I can post pictures if needed? I've seen the 55 and the 65 and am so glad i got the 65 curved.....looks much better with the curve as it seems less pronounced.

Missed your reply somehow!!

How did you get on with the wall mounting? Happy with a curved screen on the wall? I’m getting close to the 28 days of JL price match, not sure if I should buy now, or just wait until spring
