Aside from bleed through, faulty power and glitchy apps, good TV!

Summary: I'll make this quick. I did read many online reviews before purchasing this TV and read hints of the bleed through of light when screen is playing a dark media scene. It is TRUE! The 4 corners of the screen have pretty disruptive light bleed and it is very distracting and can take you "out" of the movie or show you are viewing. BUT PEOPLE...I have realized after 6 months of viewing that the light bleed DISSIPATES over time!
Summary: I want to start off by saying that the Samsung LN40C650 tv set is great. The picture quality is awesome, local and internet streaming work perfectly, and I was extremely satisfied with this unit, until... About a week after my 1 year warranty expired, I began to have problems with the ethernet adapter on the tv. I called Samsung to see what troubleshooting steps I could take to resolve my issue.
Summary: This unit has a nice picture and it does have internet apps with the optional wifi link sick. The apps aren't much more than what you will find on a wifi bluay player-Netflix and the like. It's handy if you don't want a bluray added to the connections. I expected a more feature packed set but this one is basic and only has the wifi to set it apart from the mundane. I am most disappointed with the lack of screen modes. It only has 4:3, 16:9 and screen fit.
Summary: I waited a long time to get this TV/Network resident. i was disapointed that it did not come complete. the great price i thought Amazon was giving me was minimized when i had to buy "One More Thing". the wireless adapter is not worth the money $87.00 from Samsung. it would have been cheaper and more reliable had i just ran a hard line Lan. i would not miss the buffering!
Summary: I purchased this tv and must say the picture is really clear, However I can not figure out how to get to the 120 hz, when I hit the info button on the remote the tv displays only 1080i and 60 hz, do you need to have a blueray player to see the higher hz? also Netflix does not stream at all, it starts the movie well then restarts, I called Samsung (2) times to find out why I could not download the firmware update and tried several methods.
