mech, I've asked LG's director of product management and they say other than what we already know about reducing reflections, it adds to the immersive experience when viewed close.
For me, at first I was opposed to the curve, but as I got to view several of the curved models the curve panel look grew on me and I began to enjoy it. It's a very slight curve that is barely noticeable when sitting centered to the TV.
At our TV Shootout an expert will be reviewing all of the reasons and benefits in viewing a gently curved display. Stand by for more on this.
My biggest concern with the curve would be someone sitting off at a wide angle - 30 degrees or even more. I picture this display in my living room and there's generally someone sitting off to one side on a love seat and it would be about 40-45 degrees off axis.
Keep up the great work and I look forward to this year's shootout!
mech, understood, but let's see what Samsung and LG say about the curved displays at our TV Shootout. Should be interesting. If you watch the live event we're moderating viewers comments and will pass along questions to the speakers and our panel of experts.
We don't have a shopping cart as we are a brick and mortar store and not eCommerce so we enjoy speaking to all of our clients. Our dedicated LG OLED website should have prices listed along with our special offers.
As of my last update from LG we are on schedule to have our first allocation next week. Hopefully Thanksgiving won't delay the delivery.
