Samsung Curved TV (65H8000) Review - Week 6 - My Final Week

Times flies when you enjoying. This is pretty true with my time and Samsung Curved TV. It has been 6 weeks since the beauty came into my life and living room.

I have to say my impression of the Curved TV did changed for the better. I used to think that Curved TV is just a gimmick to make a TV set more attractive. However, other than the appearance, it does overall enhance the TV viewing experience.

Firstly, the TV was designed to be visually appealing with a “3D” effect to “pop up” out of the living room. The Curved TV was designed to follow the natural curvature of a human eye which is able to lead to less fatigue of the eyes, at the same time to reduce light reflection and interference.

Secondly, it is able to provide a 3D impact without the use of 3D glasses, enhancing the viewing experience. Samsung uses Auto Depth Enhancer technology to provide life-like, multi-dimensional images. It is able to apply different levels of contrast enhancement on different content areas, hence giving a greater feeling of depth.

Thirdly, The TV is SMART. With a wide array of content (applications), it is able to work like a smartphone with applications. Using a SAMSUNG mobile phone, you are able to do screen mirroring and at the same time control the TV as a remote control. There is a multi-link screen where you are able to multi task surfing the internet while watching TV programs. There is even a soccer mode to enhance watching a soccer match, bringing you to stadium-like feel!

For the past 6 weeks, our family and friends had enjoyed the TV. One of my neighbor went to buy a Samsung Curved TV last week after testing the TV. I think for my next TV purchase, I will definitely look at a Curved TV instead of a normal flat screen TV!

Thank you Samsung for providing this TV viewing changing experience!

Samsung Curved TV (65H8000) Review - Week 5

This is my 5th week with the Samsung Curved TV! So after using the TV for 5 weeks, did it change the way how I used to view a TV? Yes it did! The Curved TV set does not only act as a normal TV but it does much more than that only.

With the Curved TV, when I have a group of friends coming over for a visit, now all can be seated around the TV, and still be able to watch the TV program clearly, as compared to a normal flat TV. This is good when doing a private movie screening or a karaoke session with friends. We used to share our holiday photos using a laptop or a phone, however with the TV, we can link it with our phone and display the photos on the TV screen for everyone to see.

My wife and I used to watch our online shows using tablet or phone. Now with SMART TV, we make use of the Internet feature, we would watch online show on the big screen together. This would enable us to spend some together time in front of the TV.

With the SMART remote control, controlling the TV is simple. My 7 year old nephew is able to turn on the TV and move around the different features of the TV after I showed him how to do it once. Just point, wave and click! It is that easy!

I have to say, I will sorely miss the TV when I have to return it. I will miss the big curved screen sitting on top of my TV console being the center of attention in my living room. Till now, everyone will first see the TV when they step into my living room. I will miss how the TV is able to connect all other devices together and able to control using the same SMART remote control. I will miss how I am able to have a clear view of the TV wherever I sit on my sofa.

Guess that now my wife is convinced that my living room is able to hold a 65” Curved TV but then my next step is I have to win this TV. May luck be on my side. Hee….
