Very good picture but sound could be a little better

Summary: The picture quality in standard and HD is fantastic looking straight at the screen. However, at 45 degrees - i.e. looking from a loveseat on the side - the picture washes out to just acceptable. The new Panasonic LCD's and all plasma do not have this problem. Sound quality is acceptable but not great. The set should have contained a subwoofer. There is no excuse for this omission as smaller and cheaper sets have better sound.
My first 1080p set and biggest purchase from Amazon, a fantastic experience

Summary: Delievery from CEVA/Eagle was quick and even thought I had a 2 hour delivery window the driver called the night before and said he'd call 15 minutes before delivery so I didn't have to wait around and miss work. The picture is fantasic, I'm still fooling around with settings but it looks great no matter how I mess it up! ;-P The blu-ray picture is fantastic and 1080i HD cable telecasts look great as well. Another great thing is Amazon's 30 day price guarantee.
Summary: I've had this set for 2 weeks. We have a satellite HD receiver connected via HDMI. HD is literally like looking through a window. It's stunning. We haven't seen Blu Ray yet, but our first experience with HD is amazing. The colors are so crisp, the lines so clear. Truly incredible. History Channel, Discovery Channel, National Geographic - Wow!
Summary: After a few years of seeing friends go HD, and clinging to my aging 32" Sony, an unexpected (both in amount and timing) bonus came in. My wife & I knew it was time to release ourselves from the shackles of the Cathode Ray Tube and move forward. First, ordering & delivery were great. I ordered the set on June 3 (a Tuesday) at night, it shipped the next day, and was delivered on Friday, June 6.
Summary: This TV is fantastic and CEVA must be getting their act together. Ordered it Tuesday 5/27, was originally given an arrival date of June 9, then it moved down to June 5th and then I got a call this morning asking me if I would be there today. They hooked it up about an hour ago and waited around to see if everything worked alright. No taxes, free shipping, friendly delivery guys and I got it in less than a week.
Summary: This is a great product. After viewing this HDTV in a big box store and comparing image rendition with other brands, it was clear that the A650 has the best image of any LCD TV. The surface is like glass so it doesn't intrude itself in the image you are looking at. It also, to my surprise, doesn't seem to contribute to glare. Another area of performance in which this unit excelled was the angle of view.
Summary: Okay, since my last TV was a 27" CRT, this set is of course amazing. But as the other reviewers here say, check it out against the competition. There is a very good review out there on the internet by a well-known consumer electronics site on the 52" version you should check out. I used their calibration for my set (the 46") and then watched a few minutes of several films --- it looked just great.
Summary: Just set this up. CEVA Delivery was wonderful. I worried about having a high priced item like this delivered, but it is very well packaged and arrived perfect! We just threw in the movie "Cars"--not even in high def and we are blown away!!! What an incredible picture. I read other reviews about glare, but this is right next to an open window on a sunny day and there is NO glare! The colors are fantastic.
Summary: ****************************************************************************************** After 5 years of below normal usage, the TV started showing display problems (search "Samsung TV blacks become red"). This is not what is expected from Samsung quality. I guess the lifetime of digital devices is being shrinking like crazy. Earlier we had bulky devices that use to last much longer. That's not the case anymore.
Summary: I had been researching (stalking) the Samsung 71 series for about 7 months as I thought that had the best picture I had seen. Well it was, until this model came out. I have the original firmware and have not had a reset but when I do I will just upgrade the firmware so that issue has been taken care of. This set is amazing.
