Options for Displaying a Curved TV

Curved TVs have become very popular over the past several months and are still continuing to grow in popularity. Whether they provide you with a better picture and more intense viewing experience is still up in the air at the moment. But one thing is for certain, this new TV fad is not going anywhere anytime soon.

If you are interested in buying a new curved TV for your home entertainment setup, you will first want to figure out how you will display it. These days it is very common to display a flat screen on the wall using a mounting system. Many people enjoy the cinematic effect that this display option provides. But does a wall mount deliver the same effect when it is used with a curved screen?

A Wall Mount or TV Stand, Which Option is Best?

There are basically two ways to display a curved TV, by using a wall mount or on a TV stand. There are advantages and disadvantages to both options, no matter if you have a flat screen or curved screen. A TV cabinet can provide you with extra storage space and a place to put all your components such as your Blu-Ray player, Sky box, video game console or your sound bar. But at the same time, a wall mount can make use of empty wall space and take up less room than a bulky TV stand.

So how do you determine which is the best option for a curved screen? First you need to learn a little more about the technology of these newer TV models. Curved TVs use what is known as a sweet spot for the optimal viewing area. This is known as one of the best and worst features on these newer models and one of the things that consumers have disagreed about the most. Apparently, you can sit directly across from the centre of the screen and have the best viewing experience. If you choose to sit at an angle to view the screen, you could end up having viewing issues.

Why A Wall Mount May Be the Best Option For You

A wall mount could make viewing at the sweet spot much easier, yet at the same time many wall mounts are not full-motion, meaning that there would only be one place to sit in the room to get the optimal viewing experience. For that reason, a TV stand or cabinet may be the better option.

If you would rather go with a wall mount it would be best to choose one that is full-motion so that you can have more than one sweet spot in the room. You will also want to make sure that the mount you choose is compatible with your new curved TV. They will need to have the right VESA hole pattern in order to work correctly. By doing so, you will be able to get the most out of your new curved screen TV and your new wall mount display as well.
