LN40B650 Reviews - Should I Purchase?

by Closet A / March 16, 2009 7:41 AM PDT

I have not purchased a TV in 15 years and need some feedback on the LN40B650. The size fits our small family room. We do a few movies now and then, but mostly just watch cable shows and local networks stuff. I do like to watch UCONN BB and some golf.

Closet A,

It's one of the newest televisions on the market. I hope someone can come in and give a great review for it, but we're counting on it to be a very popular television this year.

If you have any specific questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to help!

just got one

I just got it and pretty much have the same channel selection as you and in my case, I want to watch the Lakers play B ball. It's a fanstastic TV and excellent value for the money. HD looks like 3D. I'd be hard put to find a better quality TV for near the price. You will not regret buying this TV, but feel like you made a smart choice. The sooner you get it the sooner you will enjoy its great picture. The sound is fine. I have no problems hearing words clearly at 1/3 of it's capabilty.

I am not sure what the diff is between ln40a and ln40b...dec 08 we decided to purchase a ln40a630 vs a ln40a650. Our main deciding factor was the matte finish screen on the 630. if you plan to view this tv in a room that has windows that you leave uncovered during the daylight hours i strongly suggest a matte finish screen to eliminate the glare. We are very pleased with the picture and the sound of the ln40a630. We also purchased a hl61a750 (rear proj dlp)and are so very satisfied with samsung's product quality and value. We researched extensively and made our choices carefully and really enjoy watching all sports on both sets. good luck!!!

Buy it. I compared it to a Sony KDL40V5100 and bought the Samsung. I hooked it up to my cable box with an HDMI cable. All I can say is wow. The best picture I have ever seen on an LCD (100,000 to 1 dynamic ratio helps).
