What a shame

Summary: Like several other people before me, the first couple years using this product was fantastic. starting about 6 months ago it took 30-40 minutes after turning on before the picture is clear. Now it is up to 1 1/2 hours to get a clear picture. I should not have to buy a new TV after only 3 years. I will never buy another TV or any other product from Samsung. Avoid !
Summary: After about ~3years, the LCD television started to show lines across the screen when starting up. It takes like ~20 minutes of warm up for the monitor to clear, otherwise the color looks distorted and there are lines at bottom 2/3 on the screen going horizontal. Looks like a badly made product. I'll not be buying another Samsung again.
Summary: We bought a Samsung LCD TV, LN40A650, in late 2008 for about $1200. The TV needed a repair to replace the IP Assembly within a few months ($56), and most recently replacement of the Main PCB ($356). I'd call this a severe quality control problem at Samsung, given that we have 3 analog TV's still running that are over 20 years old and never required any repairs.
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.
Summary: I got this tv about a month ago and am very satisfied with it! Its got a beautiful design and the picture quality is fantastic! I haven't had the chance to try out all the features but my cousin has the same tv and his features are awesome, especially the infolink. This is a terrific buy and folks, if you're looking for a tv of great quality with lots of features, this is your best bet! I only wish I would've gotten a bigger size,possibly a 52" or so.
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: The picture quality of this tv is outstanding and it has lots of cool features. Great purchase for the price. The only negative is, the audio could be improved, but it's still pretty good audio.
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: It arrived ahead of schedule, with attentive White Glove guys delivering on a Sunday(!) and 20 days later, I still can't take my eyes off the beauty and the wonder and the glory of this fine television. My first jump to HD has me gobsmacked at the detail and crisp clarity. It's as if television has been reinvented for me and I am viewing it for the very first time, having snuck away from my pygmy tribe deep in the analog TV jungle I grew up in.
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.
