    The size of 4 decently big screens tiled together into one panel? How many TVs that size can they sell?

    Seems an expensive way to start divorce proceedings

    105"? Not big enough!

    Make it taller LG and then I can use it as a wall of a room.

    Ah, yes, 21:9 4K movies, those things! Of course, all the films ever are in that kind of format aren't they? It's not like there's already an issue in terms of getting any sort of content in normal 4K or anything...

    "the challenge of uneven backlighting on curved LCD panels was successfully addressed"

    I would say the challenge of getting it through your door.....begins.

    a special 'Quadmatic Picture Engine' for upscaling "all content in UHD-level picture quality".

    By that do they mean, it can up-scale even 1080p content?

    Well, they finally caught up to an average projector screen. Quite a feat, I'll give them that, but now that they've hit the 3 digits, just bumping up the size incrementally isn't going to impress me. I want a TV I can climb into for complete immersion

    HTPC-style gaming rigs maybe? (Although one would need to utilise quite some graphic firepower for that...)

    Re: News - LG and Samsung both announce 105-inch curved LCD TVs

    Of course now I want to know...

    What is the radius of curvature of these? Therefore, how many do you need to make a circle, how big would the room be, and how many graphics cards would you need to eyefinity the lot into a surround video wall
