I'm in serious need to upgrade my current 32" Samsung which I feel I need to use a pair of binoculars to watch it! I have decided a 55" would fit the bill nicely and after hours of research i've narrowed it down to the Samsung UE55MU8000, but I have noticed the 9000 is £40 cheaper. It seems the only major difference is that the 9000 is curved and the 8000 is flat. On the face of it, it seems a no brainer to go for the curved but after all my research, it seems like hardly anyone on here is recommending a curved screen. Is this a quick fad that has been and gone? After much Googleing, all I can find are sponsored articles that don't really answer the question. So i'll ask the trusted forums, what are the pros/cons of a 55" curved screen? For reference; my budget is £800, this could stretch to £1000 if it was *really* worth the upgrade. Used mainly for netflix, films, general TV and the odd sporting event. I would rarely, if ever use it for gaming.
