"Awesome LCD"on by WonderFooL_84
Pros Superb picture quality, loads of options and settings
Cons Remote wheel sluggish
Summary I've been doing research on LCD's and Plasma's for past few months and almost purchased the LNT4681. But after reading the reviews on the 4681, I had decided to wait for something with less problems. I kept checking CNET and when I saw the review on A650 I went to bestbuy to check it out. I fell in love with the TV as soon as I saw it and knew this is the one I was buying.
I had a chance to compare it with the xbr5 and I liked the picture quality of the 650 better. As far as looks, the 650 looked way better then the xbr5. I wasn't too crazy about the red at first but it looked much nicer in person then I expected.
I was also looking at the a750 but I didn't think the price difference was worth it for a better sound system, 1 GB drive and the wireless function. I didn't like the look of the 750 as much as the 650 either. I was looking to get a home theater system anyway so I didn't care for the sound system at all and I'm sure its the same for most people. A LCD of this rank is incomplete without a home theater system.
Both 650 and 750 are the same in terms of picture quality. I watched 300 in bluray and I couldn't believe how great the picture quality was!!! I recently started playing metal gear solid 4 and I have to say it looks amazing...especially in GAME mode.
So, for all of you in the market for LCDs and Plasmas, go take a look at the LNA650 if you get a chance and that might end your search. This TV is currently ranked #1 for CNET best selling products(6/19/2008).
Just a friendly advice for all potential buyers....stay away from all the Online retailers if possible. Get it from bestbuy, circuit city or other major retailers..where you can WALK in, get the TV and get out. And if there's something wrong, it's easier to return or exchange the product. Online retaliers might be cheaper but it's not worth the hassel. If they send the wrong or defective product...have fun shipping it back. Most online retaliers have bad customer service and reviews as well. Check out epinion.com if you don't believe me. Hope this helps with your decision and purchase.
Pros Breathtaking picture and details deep blacks bright colors
Cons If I could find one I guess would be the red border but you can't really see it in person on the review it looks horrible but in person its not half bad.
Summary When my rear projection dlp went south.. I decided looking for a samsung lcd since I've been seeing such great reviews on them. I researched them on here and came upon this model and compared it with some other Samsung models such as Samsung PN50A550. I compared the two and bestbuy before I bought it and wow so worth the extra money 120hz is the feature that amazed me the most. Watching a BlueRay on this tv is simply breathtaking so clear it doesn't seem like reality. Hopefully when you are searching for a expensive lcd or plasma you do your research and invest the extra bucs it will be worth it in the long run!
Pros Many features, 4 hdmi inputs, best standard def conversion I've ever seen.
Cons Glossy screen can be a distraction, remote wheel is poorly done.
Summary Just received mine a few days ago and it has been everything that I wanted and more. HD signals and Blu-Ray movies look ridiculous on this display, of course. I was worried about watching standard definition television but it looks great on this tv. I'm not technical anything but the display must be upscaling or something because SD is looking better on this than my older, smaller tv (46").
The screen is very glossy, in the wrong place this could be a big problem. Also the wheel thing on the remote is really annoying. It's super sensitive to rotation w/ a delay; bad combination.
My advice is to get past these things and purchase this tv at the right price ($2100-$2350)...Got mine in that range and feel like I got a great deal.
Pros Uniformity in brightness, ease of adjustments, liked the remote even the flywheel, a smooth clear picture!
Cons Not as clear in HD as the Toshiba sold thru Costco model#46550U cinema series. The Toshiba has the best clear HD picture of all I looked at. I returned because it was too bright frame transitions during commercials.I know you can adjust the backlight
Summary Checked ot the sony kdl-z4100 anjhd was horribe at more money. Returned the same day to keep this Samsung. Overall a great TV especially in Standard Definiton. I is simply superb with all the standard def. I have HD with Comcasr but like the Western channel and some PBS not yet in HD. Get this at Circuit City after doing some negotiating on price.
