Samsung LN40C650 40-Inch LCD TV


(Editor's note: This review of the Samsung C650 series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 46-inch LN46C650. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model line.)

Great Internet features, well presented ; Very good audio and video ; Low price

Some strange artifacts seen with Blu-ray content ; Traditional LCD uses more energy than LED-backlit

The Samsung C650 Series is a dream come true for budget minded buyers who seek solid image quality in a connected HDTV with advanced features.

Review: Samsung LN40C650 40-Inch LCD TV


The Samsung C650 Series is a dream come true for budget minded buyers who seek solid image quality in a connected HDTV with advanced features.

In theory, the Samsung C650 series (an LCD TV with a 120Hz refresh rate) should not outperform sets equipped with LED backlights and faster refresh rates. But in our juried image-quality tests, the C650 series did just that, earning the highest overall...

Samsung LN40C650 Review – 40-inch LCD HDTV


Samsung has always provided the other leading manufacturers of HDTV a tough competition for the best picture quality. This year too is no different and each of the entries may have a different list of features to sport, but are all visually perfect...

Even with the increase in the number of features in this set in comparison with the models of last year, the energy consumption has been significantly lowered. The Samsung LN40C650 sticks to the Energy Star 4.0 guidelines and even improves on it by an...

Samsung LN40C650 TV


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Great buy, Great quality.


Just got this TV last night from Sears on sale for only $549. I love it so far, have had no problems yet, and set up was a breeze. Huge improvement over my old 26" Olevia HDTV. I wish the screen had a matte finish like my Olevia did, but I can deal.

Great screen size ; Ample port selection ; Good speakers ; Amazing Picture

Stand is a bit wobbly ; Screen is glossy so picks up any smudges

Great Picture


Great TV, I paid $750 at last year. What a bargain even if Netflix does not work. I say its a BUY. Updated on Apr 13, 2011

I like the fact that you can play Netflix, Pandora etc Really great picture so clear and bright. Sound is also very good

Connecting to Netflix it keeps reloading. I put the TV in the attic for a while so Samsung had time to fix some of the connectivity issues, I just hooked it up again 4/12/2011 and will see if Netflix is working. I will hardwire the internet. I currently u

Incredible features, picture and value!


Save yourself a lot of pain and suffering when looking for an Internet-ready HDTV (like I went thru) and just do it...go with the C650 and enjoy it happily ever-after!

I bought this TV in August, '10 and never cease to be amazed with it. Besides the picture, the Internet features (I'm harwired) puts it in the top tier of the LCD units in my opinion ; app

I can't understand why Samsung continues to push the C630 line in lcal and national diminishes the Brand's image as a prestigous player in the entertainment arena

Great TV... Internet Connectivity not so great..


I bought this TV on a Black Friday deal, so I feel that I got it for a steal. One of the things that steered me to this was the fact that it was internet ready and advertised as being an internet appliance where you could connect streamable web sites...
