So why does the curved screen cause distortion here but not at movie theaters? This is probably the second or third review I've heard say that so I'm inclined to believe it but aren't movie screens curved? Why is this a negative in a TV?

I think the distortion is due to the size of the screen. A movie theater screen is MUCH bigger than 55 inches.

Exactly. Where you see the distortion is at a typical viewing distance (7-8 feet) for a screen this size. To get the same immersive effect as with a movie theater screen, you'd need to sit a lot closer.

Samsung, save the misguided curved panel, bring down the price, get rid of the outboard box- this is not a positive. Bag the non-ergonomic remote and did I mention- drop the price, then you might sell a couple of these over-engineered Frankensteins.

...that the outboard input management, and possibly image processing, seems to be a best practice for displays. It is an excellent idea on a panel that should outlast multiple connectivity evolutions. The curve, though, is strange. Could it be a work around for some little known design challenge or inherent flaw for OLED panels of this size?
