Review: Samsung LN40B650 HDTV

 

Thanks to its very good picture quality, Internet and home-network entertainment features, and general user-friendliness, the Samsung LN40B650 ranks as one of the best HDTV we've tested this year.

The digital artifacts around fast-moving objects surprised us, in part because this model did quite well on our motion benchmark tests, which stress a television’s ability to handle moving images far more than anything you're likely to see in a movie....

Samsung LE40B650 LCD TV review

 

Are internet-enabled TVs the next big thing? We find out

Looks good ; Excellent performance ; Internet facilities

Wireless dongle costs extra ; Off-axis clarity is limited

A superb bit of TV design that makes finding something to watch a cinch

Samsung LE40B650 television - Pocket-lint

 

The UK's most popular brand of flat telly looks set to carry on its success if this entry-level LCD TV is anything to go by. The LE40B650 is so good

No judder or blur, huge contrast ratio, sharp HD images

Limited scope of "widgets", slow menus/remote, poor speakers, average Freeview pics

With the LE40B650 Samsung continues to change our expectations from a LCD TV. Last year it was the "rose black" design and primitive internet and streaming feature adding value. Now, with much improved picture quality added to the mix, the LE40B650...

Fantastic picture quality with rich contrast and tone in Standard or High Definition. The internet capabilities bode well for the future and the TV is a stylish example of contemporary units. Speaker quality leaves a bit to be desired and the widgets...
