Curved screens must not be very popular right now.
I've seen some drastic price drops on various size sets. Not just Black Friday deals

It's like curved projector screens.

Too small of a sweet spot and viewing angle.

I like a big curved projection screen. It's immersive and sort of gives the impression of wrapping around you.

A curved flat panel on the other hand makes zero sense.

If it's a big enough screen I don't mind but curved TV's has always been stupid no matter the size.

But it is catered to the ignorant, who are blissful in their purchases. Makes no difference if they are getting any benefit other than their snake oiled result.
