Depends on price. I might hold out for 4K prices to drop a bit.

I have a 136" screen, it's flat and beautiful.

My next upgrade will be for a better technology...4K.

Curved screens are all the new rage.

Curved screens are highly over-rated.

I have a question for you, "why?!"

Why?
Because I want a new TV. And, i see alot of people, e on here with a much larger tv than me.

Another question I have.

Should I just buy a bigger tv? Best Buy has a 60" onsale for $1799.99.

Samsung - 60" Class (60" Diag.) - LED - 1080p - 240Hz - Smart - 3D - HDTV

I always try and find reviews on any set I wish to buy,that or try and go and see it instore.

TV's are not equal,yes you may get a larger screen for your money with one brand but the P/Q may not be as good as on another,just a couple of things you need to consider.

Grim, I'm in the same boat has you..looking for a new TV...I have seen a few curve tv's and just don't like the look..for me personally its more of a gimmick than anything else..right now I am leaning towards this Samsung 4k...reviews looks positive on this and the picture is amazing.

It's a 2.35:1 aspect ratio screen, so my movie content is 'larger' than HDTV. I want bigger. Pic in my profile.

I recommend staying with the flat screen .. I have two 55 inch Samsung tvs that are not 4K and they have been fantastic!

I'm interested in the 'Samsung - 65" Class (64-1/2" Diag.) - LED - 4K Ultra HD TV (2160p) - 120Hz - Smart - 3D - HDTV', but it is hard to spend the money with my other two tvs still performing so well. But I'm still tempted. They even have some of last year's 4K models on clearance at Best Buy which makes it even more appealing.

Here's the set I keep looking at:

500 bucks really isn't a bargain for going out models but I agree... M5 c8000 has been awesome and other than replacing just to get a few inches and 4k I don't see much point.
