Showing 1-10 of 60
Disappointed after a few years
29 January 2012
Summary: Bought this model from Amazon in February, 2009. Delivery and set up went without a hitch and I was initially happy with the TV. The black finish from the bezel started coming off where the bezel met the screen by mid-2010. Early in 2011, a tbin vertical line appeared in the right third of the screen, from top to bottom. The line was visible at all times when the TV was on, but it was particularly visible when red or orange images were on screen.
The Samsung Touch of Color has great picture at a great price!

Excerpt: When we (finally!) got rid of our old cathode ray television, I was expected a nicer picture, but I was (and still am) amazed at the incredible picture we get on our new Samsung Touch of Color. We chose the middle range for picture speed and, honestly, I can't tell a difference between that and the higher speed picture. Most people can't, according to the sales associate we talked to, so we went with the less expensive, but just as good option.
Excerpt: I actually started out with the Sony KDL-40W100 Bravia and I was pretty disappointed. I had it for two days and thought you know, if I'm going to spend this kind of money, I want to be atleast satisfied with my purchase. Need less to say I wasn't with the Sony. So, I boxed it up and took it to Video Only where they were glad to excange it for something else. That something else was the Samsung LN40A650. Let me just start out by sayin' the cabinet is lil hideous.
Excerpt: We purchased a Samsung LN40A650 40 inch 1080p HDTV from Amazon 2 years ago and we absolutely love this TV. It has a crisp and very vivid picture. You do need to crank the volume up when you are watching a DVD but we do not have a sound system and the cabinet scratches easily but the screen has help up to many finger prints from children and it is easy to clean. I would definitely recommend this TV. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Summary: I purchased this TV after a long period of study and consideration of LCD versus Plasma. Since the room this TV is in has one wall of glass and therefore a lot of light, I choose the LCD. I chose the brand based on Consumer Reports rating. I am very happy with the TV, operation, and picture. I plugged the Ethernet cable in and the TV found the network with no problem. Delivery was great. I live in the wilderness 3/4 of a mile off a paved road.
Summary: Bought this TV four months ago after doing months and months of research. Finally decided that for the money, Samsung's 650 series offered the best in terms of contrast ratios, response times, 120Hz options, and just plain looking amazing. And I have not been disappointed. Delivery: Got the white glove service and they were able to deliver within 3 days of my purchase even after normal business hours.
Summary: We bought the Samsung LN40A650 for the following reasons: 1. The reviews said the overall picture quality was very, very good. We agree. The picture is stunning in high definition and very good in standard definition. We don't have a blu-ray player but regular dvd's render well. Blacks are quite black and colors are both realistic and vibrant. 2.
Summary: Fantastic picture. It has more connections than I will ever use. It also has a set of touch sensitive buttons on the right hand side that allows you to do everything that you can do with the remote. Amazon gave me two years interest free financing. I used the "Cheetah Mounts APTMMB Tilt Wall Mount for 32"-55" Plasma and LCD Displays" ($29.99) to mount it on the wall.
Summary: I purchased the Samsung 40a650 on December 9 from Amazon for my bedroom. It has been a little over a month and these are my initial impressions. I should start out by saying that this is the fourth Samsung flat-panel I have bought in maybe 3 years. I used to be an LCD guy when I initially bought the Samsung LNS3251D as my first HDTV. I then bought the Samsung 5084 plasma. That set changed me into a plasma guy. It has spoiled me and I love everything about it.
Summary: Even at it's current price it is an amazing television. The Samsung 650A should be on anybody's short list. When the price comes down I may have to buy another one within a year or two. Be sure to check the video settings of your set before you settle down to watch your favorite movie. I've found that the Dynamic setting without any of the "cool" color settings works best for my taste. Rich blacks and vivid colors along with brilliant whites... very nice.
