Samsung LN40B650 Review - PCWorld

 

The Samsung LN40B650 produces great-looking on-screen images, and its Internet and home-networking capabilities will keep you entertained when there's nothing good on TV. You can find cheaper 40-inch HDTVs, but the image quality and the extras make the...

Very good picture quality

Poorly implemented picture-in-picture

The Samsung LN40B650 is an excellent all-around HDTV, thanks to its very good picture quality, Internet extras, and user-friendliness.

Samsung LN40B650

 

Reproduces relatively deep black levels; accurate color; very good dejudder processing; extensive feature set with Yahoo widgets, network streaming, and built-in content; solid connectivity with four HDMI inputs and one PC input; energy efficient.

Somewhat expensive; dark areas tinged bluer; benefits of 120Hz difficult to discern; shiny screen can cause reflections in bright rooms; no S-Video inputs; overt red coloration and funky styling not for everyone.

While not up to the picture quality of Samsung's topflight models, the feature-rich, uniquely styled LNB650 series still outperforms most LCDs on the market.

Samsung LN40B650 LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Samsung LN40B650 sits in the middle of Samsung's lineup of LCD HDTVs. At 40-inchs it's available for a suggested retail price of $1,699.99, but can be found for a couple hundred dollars less if you shop around. The LN40B650 sports a variety of...

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 television review

 

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 it's tempting to suggest that the makers of plasma TVs and even new-fangled LED LCD TVs (of which...

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

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

With much improved picture quality added to the mix with innovative features, the LE40B650 renders the old plasma vs. LCD issue virtually redundant

SAMSUNG LE 40B650 LCD REVIEW

 

The summer months are normally dreadful for television. The terrestrial channels seem to serve up hour after hour of unwatchable guff and even if you have a Freeview box you have to settle for the occasional half decent film that you've already seen 37...

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...

Not the class leader it once was, but still one of the best all round TV's available ..

Overall picture performance

Widget technology a little 'Gimicky

The Samsung LE40B650 is quite possibly the most accomplished flat panel LCD TV we have come across for the price. There are no areas of weakness, and the internet functionality, albeit in a limited form at present, adds another dimension to the viewing...
