Originally priced at $600, the 4K smart TV has an impressive 55-inch curved display with a full 4K Ultra HD resolution, vivid colors and deep black levels. It produces exceptional picture quality with support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) movies and TV shows for the best 4K viewing experience around.
"This is the first curved television I have owned and it is excellent," shared a satisfied Walmart shopper. "The picture quality is great and so is the sound. I am very impressed with the picture quality. The apps such as Netflix and Hulu work perfect. I would and will recommend this television to anyone."
Curved vs. flat
In case you were wondering, the difference between a curved TV and a flat TV is, of course, the shape. While both can deliver impressive picture quality, a curved TV makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the movie, show or video game. That’s why curved TVs are considered more immersive compared to their flat counterparts, even if the comparisons are slight.
Additionally, the curve also makes the 55-inch 4K TV seem bigger than it actually is. The 4K resolution and HDR (High Dynamic Range) setting draws you in — even if you’re not sitting close to the screen. And shoppers say it's like being in the movie theater too.
"...The curved screen does make a subtle difference in viewing. I love it," raved a five-star Amazon reviewer. "I feel like I am in the movie or in a nice theater watching it. There is very little glare and I have a lot of low lighting in the room..."
And shoppers also say it rivals competing brands. "...Actually less glare than my old Sony and the other TVs in the house...," continued the reviewer.
It’s no slouch in the audio department either. The sound quality on this Samsung Curved 4K TV is world-class — so immersive and rich. "Beautiful TV! The sound and picture is fantastic," reported a savvy Amazon shopper. "It connected easily to our Wi-Fi. We are extremely satisfied with this TV. I have wanted a curved screen for a long time. So happy to have this TV."
Streaming apps galore
Plus, it’s also Wi-Fi-enabled with smart home support for Alexa, Google Assistant, as well as Samsung’s Bixby and video streaming features included. Translation: You don’t have to buy a separate video streaming device to watch Netflix, YouTube, HBO Max, Apple TV, Hulu, Disney+, Paramount+, Peacock and much, much more. It’s baked in the cake and ready to go as soon as you turn it on. And shoppers love that it's great for all sorts of entertainment, including gaming.
"I use this primarily for my computer for both gaming, surfing and entertainment," added another five-star Amazon reviewer. "The apps installed make it easy to watch Netflix, Hulu and Prime TV with little to no switching time between inputs. The picture quality is great, just what i have come to expect from Samsung..."
The Samsung Curved 4K TV includes three HDMI ports for a Blu-ray player or video game console, along with dual USB ports, so you can bring your own media to the party. Some shoppers even use it as a gigantic computer monitor. "The TV is great as is but it really shines when used as a monitor," wrote a happy Amazon shopper. "...With the curved TV, I can see the whole screen clearly in close proximity..."
