    you may be better off buying an hdmi to scart adapter from somewhere like Maplins.

    not many tvs come with scart connections these days may have to do what jbecker suggested

    I'm a right tech nerd and buying a curved tele is a waste of time unless its big and your he only one watching it so your bang in the middle.
    I'd personally stick with a flat screen, all new teles have HDMi and USB, as for Scart I'm not 100% mines only a year old and has scart.
    John Lewis and Richer Sounds will be your best bet as you get there 5-6 year warranty

    The fashioned for curved is on its way out. At that price your only choice from this years models as far as I'm aware is Samsung.

    Agreed with the above. It appears curved panels were a bit of a passing fad. Unless of course, as toon_army rightly stated is that it's huge (55+) and views bc position is dead centre

    But that said, Samsung have always made the best curved panels.

    You can get a Samsung 40" ku6300 for about £400 in most places now. Good quality 4K, HDR(ish) well rated smart tv for your curved budget

    I've got the 6400 which is the same set but not curved and it's been excellent for ps4 and sky HD watching

    Don't restrict the set you can by the scary socket. Most new mid range led don't seem to come with so you'll be limiting. By the

    Oops...

    Buy the converter jbecker suggested and the odd occasion, you'll require a scarf socket, it'll be available

    You're getting your models conflated there. The KU6300 is a flat model for the US market, it's not available here.

    There's the K6300 which is a Full HD curved model, the KU6100 which is a curved 4K screen and the KU6500 (and 6510/6670 variants) which are the curved version of your KU6400 - a 4K TV with partial HDR (just the wider colour space).

    Your spot on mate. I got the us model mixed in there. I was referring to the ku6100 you mention.

    It's £450 from Argos and cheaper online

    But I got my 43" ku6400 for £450. So you get bigger screen, metal bezel instead of plastic and wider colour gamut for the same price if you can live without curved.

    Sorry if my recommendation is Samsung specific but after research and experience, the mid range+ Samsungs are the best value for money and spec without spending crazy amounts on a Lg oled. Just my two cents

    Thanks endkesswaves for pointing out my error. I could have sent OP on a right old wild goose chase

    Can you send me a link to this model please, and a one to the converter for the scart socket as well please??

    Curved 40" £449 http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6146865

    Flat 43" £539 currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

    amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1480507402&sr=8-3π=SY200_QL40&keywords=scart+to+hdmi+converter&dpPl=1&dpID=41SwmXfUwSL&ref=plSrch

    Note: make sure you get scart to HDMI converter and not a HDMI to scary converter

    Ps the 43" for £539 I got off EBay for £450. If you search electronics warehouse on eBay they regularly get unwanted returned stock from currys. They're open box but often not even plugged in. You still get 1 yr warranty but I get not everyone would spend that much on eBay

    I personally don't think it's worth it spend more on the curved. But after some more research; one more thing curved screens are good for is if you will be using the tv a lot as a pc monitor.

    So if you'll be sitting a metre away from it the majority of time, the curved would help as you would lose less of the screen given the close viewing distance

    Other than the above, curved TVs seem to be favoured in the 55"+ panels where it's more suited technology. At 40" a lot of people argue it's redundant

    Sorry to waffle
