When looking at purchasing a new Television, you might see that some of the higher end models from Samsung and LG come in a curved variation. Why would you buy a curved television over the traditional flat panel tv? There are some important characteristics that set curved televisions apart from Flat screen televisions:
Aesthetic – Curved Televisions can offer a great futuristic enhancement to any living room. The look of curved televisions usually entails premium materials and design
Immersive Experience – The curve design of the television matches the concave shape of the eye giving the perception that the screen is larger. This means, for example, a curved 55” television would appear bigger than the equivalent traditional 55” television. For smaller rooms, this makes curved televisions the perfect option for bang for your buck as a smaller curved television can compensate for a larger traditional flat screen television
Premium features – With the price of curved televisions you can expect all the premium features that you would usually find in high-end televisions such as OLED panels, 4k Ultra High Definition, Smart functionality, High Dynamic Range compatibility and built-in Wi-Fi.
Better Viewing Angles – With the concave screen there are wider viewing angles when watching content as you will not be watchinAg a flat screen on an angle. This also means there will be less glare on the screen making them ideal for bright rooms.
Some things to consider when purchasing a curved television:
As with most premium thin televisions, the sound is sacrificed to maintain the design so you may want to factor in the price of a sound bar with your purchase. Both LG and Samsung offer curved soundbars which match the design of curved televisions
While curved televisions are perfect for viewing due to the design, the televisions can be bulkier. Curved televisions can also be harder to wall mount with a unique bracket being required. They are best suited to sitting on a cabinet on the included stand for a stable position
