Both. Its concave, not convex like old tube TVs. Its more immersive and provides better depth and peripheral experience, but its negligible. Its no IMAX. For the most part, it just looks really cool. The biggest thing is that Samsung put all of its best technology in it, so even if it weren't curved, it would still be better than any TV most people have ever seen. The curve just gives it the prestige.
