I really wish they would revert to the XP functionality for searching for files on your computer using Windows Explorer. Even with indexing on and tweaked, there are times where you just cannot find the files you are looking for even though that worked in Windows XP.

Yep, they broke that completely, replacing it with that crappy 'content:' argument, which never f***ing works anyway.
Not to mention the sh*tty networking on windows 7, private, home and network! The number of times when I reboot and lose my network I have to jiggle around with this crap to get it to work! And then the 'opening a folder in explorer and it takes 20 seconds to find a few files'. Just WTF did they screw up there?
And the footprint of the OS compared to XP. 90 MB compared to over a gig. Not to mention junk like defender, smartfetch and the other 'we know better than you do' crap they load it with.
I have seen so many views and opinions that I just can't make up my mind or form an opinion on them.
Although, wondering if the curved ones will go the same way as 3DTV and slowly die away.
I've got my eye on a new one, and get the feeling that curved are still being pushed hard by the manufacturers, but when I look at them in the flesh, not convinced that for any normal setup, ie. where you have living room chairs at multiple viewing angles it makes any sense. yes, if you are sitting straight on at the right viewing distance then I can see some potential viewing benefit, but on the whole, it just doesn't appear to look right if you are sitting off to the side even slightly.
I have tried in the shops picturing where the various chairs in the living room are relative to where the tv would be located, and flat just feels the right choice. I'm also having to take into account, if I get kicked out of Qatar next year, where is the telly likely to go in any future abode, or back home in the UK house!
Has anyone here bought a curved, and then wish they hadn't after real world use?
Other than that...discuss....
For info, I'm only considering Samsung, as they are my brand of choice at the moment*, and the models I've been exploring are;
88KS9800 78KS9500 78KS9000 all SUHD, HDR, QDot, Curved and 75KS8000 which is the flat equivalent of this range. And from the previous range, 78JU7500 (curved) 85/75JU7000 (Flat) both UHD 4K 3D and the 75JU6400 Flat UHD 4K.
In the uk I have a 63 Flat LED Sammy (can't remember the model number) and over here in Qatar have 2 x 46" Sammy's and happy with the smart hubs play nicely with the vpn link, and the remotes are interchangeable when the kids lose them!
