    Thinking about getting a new TV. Considering OLED but unsure about the curved TVs. Are they a gimmick?

    Yes I have a Samsung 55" and it's not better than my older samsung 50", it's a big gimmick but they are getting cheaper now anyway

    The curves distort the picture, imo.

    I had a Samsung 55", now I have a Samsung 65" curved. There's a big improvement because it's UHD, and the curved looks flat to the eye and certainly doesn't take away anything. I'm pleased with it.

    I have Samsung 55" 4k. My god is it clear. Cost 1400 new now it's 750 go figure. I love it I can use my phone on it with screen mirroring. Got so many compliments of how clear it is. Oh did I mention it is so clear.

    Love my 58" Panasonic plasma. THX certified, which means I never have to adjust the color. Fantastic picture...

    Most of these people with an opinion don't have a curved tv. I do, and it's much better than boring regular square tv. Especially if you are watching on an angle, it is really cool and draws you in. I just bought two tv's one is a curved the other is not. both 4k uhd tv's. The curved samsung is about 100x better that the square sony.
