From the front it looks straight but when seen from the sides it seems as if the TV seamlessly meets the rear and the front. The back is designed to create a simple and cleaner look.

All these players invest a lot of time and money in research and development to better their existing product line as well give their products the superior edge compared to products of the competition. Since televisions these days are getting more and more technologically advanced, it is but obvious that they will come at a price that might seem high to a layman but anyone with a little sense of the electronics industry and technology will understand the reason behind the pricing.
