"In a word....Awesome!!"5.0 starson by somnus69
Pros: Deepest blacks I've seen on an LCD,4 HDMI,50,000:1 contrast ratio, Touch of Color frame, 120Hz processor, and the ethernet connection allows streaming weather, news, and stock info from your computer!
Cons: Not a big deal really, but the click wheel remote could be more responsive.
Summary: I researched many different models before deciding on the 650, and I've had no regrets whatsoever. The depth of the colors and the clarity of the picture makes you feel like you're watching live action, and not a TV.
I read the CNET review and they didn't like the reddish frame, and initially didn't think I'd like it either. However it adds life to the black or silver we've grown accustomed to, and I most definitely enjoy it more than the acrylic frame of the Sony XBR series.
The blacks are the deepest I've seen on any LCD and rival my friends Pioneer Kuro plasma. There are more than enough fine tuning controls for the picture you need, and the 4th HDMI connection is a sweet bonus. Plus the Ethernet port for streaming weather, stocks and news across the screen is another seemingly unnecessary bonus but one that has proved useful.
This is my first LCD (besides my computer monitors) and I've been a die hard plasma fanatic, but this set has changed my mind.
Also Samsung has a firmware update to fix the auto off some have been experiencing. You download it to a flash drive stick it in the USB port, install it and thats it.
