    Hi guys,

    I was interested in maybe getting this TV, but I cannot find any user reviews for it - no mention on these here forums, and certainly no apparent love for curved TV's - which I think look great!

    There are several reviews here, but none of them in depth enough to warrant an accurate purchase.

    SAMSUNG UE65MU6670 65" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR Curved LED TV

    I have about 1.5k to spend and really want to go 65" - my current TV is 55". I plan to Steam Netflix 4k, get a PS4 Pro and Amazon TV 4k.

    Does anyone know of any negatives regarding this TV, or indeed could recommend another 65" for around the same price.

    Thank you very much indeed.

    Spence

    I purchased the 55" version this week, had a few days using it with my one x and everything seems to be working great and the pic looks spot on. No negatives from me

    Spend a little more and get the 65MU9000 would be my advice.

    I purchased the 55 MU6670.
    Took it back , inexcusably backlight bleed,
    Tried another 2 units, all 3 had terrible bleed in the corners.

    Decided to get the MU6470 , tried that, huh.. bad light bleed, plus I found out it’s got ips panel, went back to Currys,
    They told me it’s a va.
    Bullsh*t it was a ips.
    Bought a MU7070 55
    No light bleed .
    Va panel

    It’s a keeper .

    Just to add
    I found the 667 bad with reflections. Could see a dam thing,
    Even a white cushion reflected bad
    Happy camper now.

    Here’s a good site to check what panel you have. DisplaySpecifications - Specifications and features of desktop monitors and TVs
    Apparently Samsung changed the 6640 to an ips mid series .
    Sadly it didn’t list 6670 s. The 6670 was devoid of black, sure sign of ips.
    Check before purchase.
    Don’t bother to ask know how team they are clueless.

    VA - good contrast, black uniformity and next to no light bleed but poor viewing angles.
    IPS - Good colour accuracy and viewing angles but prone to backlight bleed.

    E.g. MU6400 40" has a VA panel with 4000:1 contrast ratio but maybe 49" and definitely 55" have an IPS panel with 1000:1 contrast ratio.

    Thanks. Makes sense but yikes to model numbers not being identical spec and changes with screen size

    To be honest anything is going to be better than our 8year old Samsung lol

    I’ve been reading on the forum and the backlight bleed seems prone on the mu6400 49”

    What’s the definition of poor viewing angles?

    Taking size away would va panel be better than ips?
    Do you know what the mu6470 has at 49”

    The 6470 is really a cosmetic version of the 6400 exclusive to Curry's so the 49" is almost certainly an IPS panel.
    There are pros and cons for both panel types but if you are mainly looking for a TV for watching films then a VA panel is probably better. I use mine mainly for gaming so am OK with an IPS panel.
    You should really check out the TVs in a showroom and look for one you know has a VA panel e.g. a 40MU6400 and see how far off centre you need to go before the display starts 'clouding' and if that will fit with your home location.

    Thanks

    Makes sense. Most of the time it will be usually TV programmes with the odd films

    I went to store which had the 40 and 49 mu6470 and didn’t pay much attention to angles and colours as they were playing different things and one was on a higher shelf. But now I know I will look out for it
