Saw a curved TV for the 1st time on Monday, not sure what the purpose is.

I was told by an LG rep it's so you can see all four corners.

Since you can see all 4 corners on a smaller TV, isn't BIG and CURVED than an oxymoron ?

I personally don't get the attraction. Maybe if I watch something -- movies, sports, 3D -- I would see what the rationale is for curved.

^ Yeah you know what.- There was a time when for the average Joe, we thought 64" was WAY too big, no-one would ever need such a large TV....

Now we want bigger and sit closer. Always looking for more.

Curved may indeed wean it's way into our psyche and become a requisite.

I see no purpose in a curved plasma, and a real need for curved displays in large LCD panels.

Consider the off-axis characteristics of the two display technologies. If you're set up per SMTPE viewing distances (30 degree screen coverage), and seated on-axis, the edge of the screen is 15 degees off-axis. Sit closer and the angle is greater. If a display technology has issues with off-axis viewing, you may see off-axis degradation when sitting on-axis. Curving the screen addresses this.

Have fun,
Frank

Please NO don't make it SO! I love a lot of things with curve's women, car's, but not TV's although that is just my thought's.

If all the people become crazed and fall in love with curved tv's what will happen to the folks with projector's?

Then they may have to buy a new curved projector screen to enjoy whatever their watching!

I hope not, it's distorts the image. even if you are sitting at the 'focal' point exactly, it's only curved horizontally, not vertically, so you don't really get a perfect 'wrap-around' feeling natural image.

it's funny, when the best thing they are saying about the curve, is that if you sit in the right spot it's not very noticeable...

if not being noticeable is the goal, why do it at all? so bizarre

you mean dig out the old curved screens they used to 'need' before they were lucky enough to get projectors capable of projecting a sharp, uniform image on a flat screen.

curved screens, is literally a step backwards, not forwards. or at least it is with todays sources. maybe they'll start making sources that are edited specifically for curved screens, and we can start expanding around the room(since we're already at the point where larger TV's likely won't fit) until we get full 360* screen walls.

but to be honest, I don't think i'd want that, even in a dedicated room.
