    Its interesting they got THX cert for this TV. They clearly try with most of their LED TV's as most of them have THX settings hidden in the menus once cracked/unlocked.

    Re: News - LG curved OLED TV achieves THX certification

    Is it just me, or is this just a bit strange? For years, manufacturers have been telling us that flat (and thin) screens were best. But now they're saying that this was all wrong and what we actually needed was screens that curved in the opposite direction to the old CRT's?

    Not impressed anyway, the chances of me being able to persuade SWMBO to upsize from 40" to 55" is about the same as that of having a news broadcast that doesn't mention babies at the moment.

    Also read somewhere that while the picture at the focal point of a curved screen is superb, those at off-angle viewpoints get a correspondingly poorer picture. Which is great - I guess - for Royle Family setups where you're all huddled in together, not so good otherwise.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Why would I want a TV broken out of the box?

    Curved monitor (for a single user): yes please. Curved TV: not sure...
