Also, did you notice any clouding?
Lastly, do you think the curve would make it harder to wall mount?
I've only spent a short time with it, so my initial reactions to your questions are:
The reflections in a bright, sunny room are noticeable during dark scenes. And because of the curve, the reflections are distorted and more focused to a narrow area. If I lean left and right, the reflections move back and forth quickly. Hard to explain, i hope this makes sense?
Clouding - I had to load up the solid red, blue, green and white screens from the Disney WOW disc, and yes, I saw some minor clouding - most noticeable in red. Thankfully, I couldn't detect any clouding with normal content
, and nothing in dark or black scenes so far. I was concerned about this, but after seeing content in action I feel it's a non-issue.
Wall mount - this sucker is heavy (106 pounds), but not as thick as expected. Wall mounting shouldn't be a problem with a well-anchored mount and strong people lifting it.
Hope this helps! Any other question or concerns, please post!
