    Curved screens are just plain stupid.

    Give me 4k, OLED, 3D, flat screens anytime.

    You see those monitors from Samsung? They've got curved screens. Curved. Screens.

    Curved monitors are not good for digital artists... I can say that much with confidence hahaha..

    Great for watching videos and playing games though.

    Sorry you feel that way man. I'm looking forward to getting one of the 21:9 curved screens. Maybe even two and stack them. It would be sweet!

    The samsung one mildly makes sense, but I can't imagine how the LG one wouldnt just eventually snap in your pocket

    I used to be a gamer like you. Then I took an arrow to the knee.

    LG right now sells their curved TVs at the same price as their flat ones because curved TVs are more of a hipe thing than a real plus. Heck, their latest TVs only have one curved model and it's not even the most expensive one.

    Another thing would be computer monitors that are inches away from the user. That "may" have some immersive benefit, but certainly not on TVs.
