  • 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.

Excellent Picture 120 Hz - So-So

K. Wessling "Wiley Retired Prof", Amazon
24 September 2008
  • Summary: I researched the market for HDTVs for over 2 years before the price got to where I was willing to invest. The options I finally had to decide between were the Samsung 650 series and the Sony Z series. When I looked at the Samsung next to the Sony W series, the clarity and contrast (blackness of the background)of the Samsung looked better to both my wife and I.

Great TV - a few misses (rating = 4.5)

VVV "kjm88", Amazon
20 September 2008
  • Summary: First, this is an excellent TV and my review focuses on a few points missing from the other reviews that would have been helpful to know when I was "shopping" for a new TV - not that these would have prevented me from buying the Samsung. Second, I own 2 older Panasonic plasmas which were/are considered the best flat panels before LCD's hit the market; so my review is based on features I felt were missing with the Samsung that the Panasonics have.

TV broke within 2 months, but I can't change my star rating

Scott Powell, Amazon
9 September 2008
  • Summary: I originally wrote this review shortly after receiving this TV but feel I must revise given some recent problems. Less than two months after receiving the television it broke: the screen "digitized" and now it will not turn back on. To make matters worse, Amazon offers no support for the product or problems 30 days after purchase. When I called Samsung for warrany assistance, the representative asked for the serial number and the problem.

Great Picture

Chriscissors, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this TV less than a month ago and I absolutely love it! The picture is breath-taking and the AMP is awesome. The thing I don't love about it however is the sound. I've been having audio issues with it. Every once in a while the sound cuts out for a split second. Also, the sound will sometimes go lower and then higher for no apparent reason.

Excellent HD TV . . . unless you have FIOS

  • Summary: This is an excellent LCD TV that delivers a truly great picture (with a bit of calibration from the factory settings). There are lots of A?V connections and plenty of picture settings to help customize the TV to just the way you like it. Be aware that the screen is reflective when it is placed opposite windows (like a lot of TVs). The "touch of red" (around the frame of the set) doesn't bother me, but it may not be for everyone's taste.

Picture is great; Audio Solutions, not so much.

N. Baker "The Guy Who Reviewed This", Amazon
8 July 2008
  • Summary: Let me start of by saying I also did a lot of research and though this may not be the best "bang for your buck tv" it certainly gets you into that 95% stratosphere (that extra 5% being the loss of the bang for buck). The picture is wonderful. Blacks are extremely improved over my HDTV of 2 gens ago. There are tons of options (and I haven't even been into the super technical menu you have to boot into) to adjust the picture to your liking.

Beautiful picture quality and amazing features with very minor annoyances

Jonathan Focarino, Amazon
19 May 2008
  • Summary: Pros: Amazing picture quality. Great connectivity options and features. Cons: Click wheel remote is inaccurate. CEVA shipping will cause you headaches if you live in the metropolitan New York area. Auto motion plus will cause stuttering on medium to high setting. The Samsung 40a650 is the best LCD on the market right now. The picture quality is fantastic and the connectivity and features are plentiful.

Great TV - some picture distortion at top

James Ray "Doug Ray", Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: I just got the 40" 650P and all the above reviews are right-on! Great picture, solid tv. I am having a slight problem with a 'white' blinking line on the very top of the viewing area. It is not immediate, only after viewing a channel for about 8-10 minutes. It is on every channel. When I switch channels, or the program goes to commercial, the distortion goes away, but comes back after about 8 minutes.
