Screen rippling for Samsung curved TV (UE55HU8500)

by Desertman65 / October 6, 2014 4:28 AM PDT

I have just bought a Samsung UE55HU8500 and I am very happy with the quality of the pictures etc. It's great. However, when the TV is switched off, the screen is slightly rippled and has some very slight deformity, especially near the top rim. Is this normal? I would have thought the screen would be uniformly curved with a smooth curve and now other distortions. It doesn't affect the viewing performance at all but just wondering what others think.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
