I agree, the reflection and the curve are two items blown out of proportion. The OLED is so bright you really don't see a lot of reflection unless you are viewing from the sides, I have four windows behind me an this set deals with the incoming light very well. There is a reason that 2 manufactures came out with curved sets, not sure what it was but I don't even see the curve anymore. The only time I see bad distorted reaction is when the set is off .

That's good to hear. All your combined comments are making me more comfortable with the curve . My wife likes pretty things, does the base/stand hold up well in looks in RL?

Watched Gravity this evening (goofiness galore, but I wanted to see it shine on the OLED), which if you didn't know is with an AR of 2.35:1. Followed it with the first bit of Sin City and the letterboxes looked pretty dayum uniform (as you may or may not know, the film is loaded with shades of gray). Didn't pull up the slides to check afterwards because I didn't want to end the night on a bum note!

Suppose I could live with the curve and the reflections, but these often reported isses is the one thing keeping me away from this first-generation set.

No matter the amazing PQ, having had plasmas in the past I'd hate having to constantly think about what I'm watching, how I'm watching it, and for how long I'm watching it. Even if it would only be in the back of my mind I can't stand the idea of my tv restricting things for me this way. That would not be what I payed a premium price for. Not to torture ones set (which I've never done with any tv) and to exercise common sense is one thing but to risk IR or burn-in after just a few hours of a static image or letterbox bars would be completely unacceptable to me.

Why do you insist on interpreting the reflections as a negative?

 

A parabolic mirror will without a doubt reflect fewer light sources. That means windows, lamps, whatever you have around your room are less likely to be reflected.

 

However in the (low probability) case that something is reflected, the reflection will be brighter than a flat mirror.

 

The improvement is the same as going from concave to flat, i.e. less reflections caught, but reflections caught are brighter. Going from flat to convex is the same.

Like I said; "...I could live with the curve and the reflections..." but I don't have to like them. I never have so why should I think of them as positive? They are a distraction. But the amount of reflection on tv's do differ though. I've gone through several examples of this over the last 20 years. This wasn't quite the point of my post above though as there are bigger fish to fry it seems (things to complain and be concerned about).

Not brighter.  Larger.  A concave mirror spreads the appearance of the images.  There are actually two effects.  It gathers from a smaller angle (fewer things are reflected), and what is reflected seem optically spread (those items are larger).

 

You can verify the reverse effect by looking at the reflections on the surface of a shiny cylinder (a convex shape).  Or verify the same effect by looking into a concave mirror that women use for makeup.

Give it a try from someone with a good return policy just in case, but note the only people who are complaining about the curve do not own own and most are just repeating negatives from others. The people who own the set are not bothered by it, there is most likely a good reason Samsung & LG both curved their 1st OLED sets, if it was an issue at all I will tell you and return mine.

Well, your wording annoys me. You are implying that they are a negative particular to this TV. They are not. In fact they are less likely to be a nuisance than they would be for a flat display with similar glass/filters/specs.

Well, people bothered by a curved display obviously wouldn't buy it in the first place.  So of course the ones who own the set are not bothered by it.

On the other hand, I was bothered by the curve but thanks to the owners discussion I've found myself less and less motivated to even consider it an issue since I'm not wall mounting the one I purchase.

Can someone please chime in on whether the base is completely transparent and whether they've provided a way to hide cords for people like me that need good cable management?

Do you have a worst-offender list for glossy that comes to mind?  IIRC the 2012 LG LM series gave the worst reflections.  Potentially the 2012 pana plasmas, but I might be remembering that one wrong.

You get a cable flex wrap, and some other stuff to help. I can send u a pic of how mine ended up looking later.

Fair point.  I myself was wondering how effective the conversation about that has been.

I'm surprised how much I might be over it truly. I have my windows to either side of the screen, I'm starting to think the curve might actually help prevent some of those reflections too. One of the big factors after the discussion was the one where I showed it to my wife and she ended up saying how nice it would look. With WAF in hand I can get a lot done biggrin.gif
