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 LE40C650

 

This television proves that Samsung hasn't become so obsessed with LED that it's forgotten about its CCFL LCD sets.

Attractive design ; Minimal motion blur ; Great black levels for a CCFL LCD set

Not as slim as LED sets ; Inconsistent backlight ; Almost no bass

The LE40C650 thankfully proves that Samsung hasn’t become so obsessed with LED that it's forgotten about its CCFL LCD sets. The LE40C650 is for the most part a really excellent picture performer that delivers some of the most cinematic, contrast rich...

Samsung LE40C650 review

 

Samsung's budget televisions are for the most part absolute belters, and this LCD is no exception

Great pictures and a fully-loaded spec for a very reasonable price ; decent sound by prevailing flatscreen standards

Close rivals offer even better motion handling and colour

Another year, another budget belter from Samsung

Samsung LE40C650

 

Selling for as much as £899 from the likes of Tesco and Argos, we spotted this mid-range Samsung LCD selling online for under £650 - and at that price it's an absolute steal. As well as being a Full HD panel with a touch of class, the red-tinted...

HD pictures, DivX HD, low price

Internet@TV interface, SD images, remote control

Well presented Freeview HD software and useful compatibility with DivX HD files meets a rather busy Internet video platform. Add those to some blur-free, lively and contrast-heavy HD and SD pictures, and here's a great value 40-inch TV that proves...

Samsung LE40C650 review

 

Digital-savvy LCD TV with Freeview HD and great pictures

Digital media playback ; Depth and smooth movement ; Colour

100Hz introduces flicker ; Internet@ TV lacks must-have services ; Average sound quality

LCD TVs souped-up with LED backlights have taken over from 'normal' LCD TVs, right?
