Touch of Color

Touch of Color Samsung’s Series 6 marks the first appearance of TOC (Touch of Color) design in the 2008 LCD HDTV line-up. Inspired by designs from the automotive and fashion industries, Samsung’s unique unique Transparent and Opaque Color molding process creates a clean, smooth finish infused with a hint of a translucent color during the manufacturing process for an ultra-sleek appearance.

InfoLink

Touch of Color Up-to-the-minute access to weather, news, sports and stock information is just a cable and a click away through the HDTV’s Ethernet port and new InfoLink RSS service. An all-new user interface with digital contents management guide provides intuitive navigation and access to both internal and external content.

Auto Motion Plus 120Hz

auto motion plus 120Hz This technology doubles the frame rate from 60 to 120 frames per second (120Hz LCD panel) without repeating the same image to make more frames. Instead, the TV intelligently calculates the a??middle’ image between frame A and frame B and inserts it in between (Auto Motion Plus 120Hz processor), making a fluid transition from one frame to the next.

Super Clear Panel

clear panel chart

super clear panel
Samsung enhances the clarity of select LCD HDTVs by replacing the light-diffusing plastic face of traditional LCD HDTVs with a natural black panel with a clear anti-glare shield. Reduced reflection of external light creates a new dimension in image clarity, highlighting black and darkened areas, enabling vibrant, more compelling colors and a brighter, clearer picture. Black will never again appear grayish. Black details will show in vivid black even in dark scenes.

The latest version of Samsung’s breakthrough super clear panel technology makes colors appear more vibrant and blacks even deeper than ever. Enhanced films reduce glare and optimize off-angle viewing.


50,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio/500 nit Brightness

25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio 50,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio will give you a picture better than you ever thought possible, with whiter whites, blacker blacks and a nearly infinite subtlety of gradations in between. As two of the most important determining factors in overall picture quality, contrast and brightness levels achieve new heights in this latest generation LCD panel. Samsung’s new LCD TV’s give the most stunning realistic picture quality ever.

Full HD 1080P

full HD 1080P Full HD, or 1080p, contains 1.5 times more scanning lines than conventional HD TVs. More scanning lines mean more pixels, more details and a better picture. The new Samsung LCD TV with resolution that is approximately 2 times greater than conventional HDTVs, creating the most perfect picture imaginable.

Samsung’s 1080p panel uses a new high-speed liquid crystal to cut response time to 4ms. The fast response time, coupled with Samsung’s Auto Motion Plus 120Hz motion blur reduction technology dramatically reduces motion blur and judder.

Wide Color Enhancer/Cold Cathode Flourescent Lamp

The NTSC (National Television Systems Committee) has established the color standards all TVs in America try to meet. And typical LCD TVs only meet about 72% of this standard. Samsung LCD HDTVs use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp backlights to give you 92% coverage of the NTSC standard, ensuring truer, more breathlessly vivid colors.

Samsung’s exclusive Wide Color Enhancer technology delivers more brilliant colors, even in bright areas of the picture where blues and greens are washed out on conventional screens. The system displays wider color reproduction, showing you truer colors – the fresh green of spring foliage, the intense blue of the summer sky.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)

DLNA logo

dlna daisy chain
You already know something about digital living. There’s the TV and digital video recorder in your family room. (And another set in your bedroom.) You have a PC and digital printer in your office, along with a network attached storage device. And you’ve copied all your music onto your portable music player and haven’t had to open a CD case for years. But getting them to talk to each other can be pretty tough. Why is it still so difficult to send digital content from one device to another?

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a collaboration of the world’s leading consumer electronics, PC and mobile companies that has created design guidelines for a new generation of products that can work together a?? no matter the brand.

Think for a moment about all of the photos "locked away" on your home PC that you wish you could access while entertaining your friends and family. Now, thanks to DLNA enabled devices, a DLNA-enabled PC can be accessed from the comfort of your living room or family room via a DLNA-enabled HDTV, where you can enjoy your memories with friends and family, without having to deal with the hassle and non-intuitive "PCexperience".

Or, say you recently downloaded your daughter’s birthday party video from your digital camcorder to your PC. Now you want to share it with your parents who are visiting. Without DLNA, you probably have to burn a DVD of the video or hook up the camcorder to the TV. With DLNA, you can just use your TV’s remote to call up the video on your TV. That’s it.


Super Patterned Vertical Alignment

Audio Features

TruSurround is a patented SRS technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over two speakers. TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound experience through any two-speaker playback system, including internal television speakers and headphones. It is fully compatible with all multichannel formats up to 5.1 channels. High-quality virtual surround sound can be experienced with just the two hidden, downward-firing side-mounted 2.2-channel dome speakers built into the TV.

SRS TruSurround XT technology delivers an amazing, simulated 3D effect with clear dialog and powerful bass.

TruSurround XT audio also adds three audio enhancement technologies to produce an amazingly immersive sound experience.
  • Dialog Clarity brings movie dialog into Focus during the playback of any surround-encoded material to make speech much clearer and crisper.
  • TruBass creates incredible deep rich bass allowing a person to perceive significantly deeper, richer low bass tones that are far beyond the physical low frequency capabilities of the speaker itself.
  • The SRS WOW feature widens the soundstage by processing standard two-channel stereo material as well as multi-channel encoded material for a dramatic improvement in the playback of any stereo audio over a two-speaker system.
Stereo broadcast reception is offered for MTS and SAP with 181-channel capacity. A sound leveler keeps audio volume consistent during channel changing.

Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.
If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.
  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5
  • Series 6 1080p LCD HDTVs are available in 19-inch, 22-inch, 32-inch, 40-inch, 46-inch, and 52-inch models

Customer Reviews:

  • Great TV
    I read all of the reviews before purchasing. I can't say much here that has already been said. This is a great TV for TV Watching, Movies, and Video Games (I have a PS3 connected to mine).

    The picture is super-sharp. I have very rarely caught even a hint of motion-blur. Blacks are truly black and all of the in-between shades look great.

    A comment regarding Amazon's service: There was minor problem with the shipping company that was used. I e-mailed Amazon figuring nothing would come of it. Amazon actually called the shipping company and put pressure on them to see to it that I received my TV when I was supposed to - and it worked. I can't say enough good things about Amazon's service. They made good on a bad situation....more info
  • Better Than Expected
    Crystal clear picture. The red in the frame is barely noticable, I don't see why some make such a big deal about it....more info
  • We all know its the best TV
    Its difficult to say anymore over the 800+ fav reviews. But yes, I read most of them, did a lot of research before buying, and finally settled on this TV. It is the best for the money and probably produces a better image than even more expensive models.
    Standard TV is great, bluray is excellent - all is mind blowing. Just buy this TV at the best price you can find - stop waiting for better TVs. You will not regret it....more info
  • Awesome HDTV
    I have had the LN46A650 for a month now and have been extremely happy with the product. The picture is amazingly clear expecially when viewing HD channels. When viewing blu ray...WOW! The only negative about this TV is the sound but since I run both sound and video through my AV reciever, it is not an issue....more info
  • Superior product
    I am completely satisfied with my new Samsung HD. The product is well built and overall it is a joy to look at. Top quality overall. ...more info
  • Amazing picture quality
    The reason for buying LN46A650 was just to get a little extra size (42 to 46 upgrade) and full HD resolution for Bluray, and I got much more than expected. I had two Panasonic Plazma TVs before I purchased this Samsung LCD, and I thought I am getting everything I can from my HD cable. I was amazed how clear the picture is on my new....more info
  • Awesome television
    Got excellent delivery service from the company Amazon.com uses. Got the white glove delivery. The company arrived with the TV all boxed up in the factory carton, opened it, and set it up for me including hook up to power and cable, etc. They left me sitting on the sofa watching TV. The delivery time is not what the system predicts. The TV arrived in 3 days from date of purchase, the system estimated 10 days.

    I am and electronics tech and specialize in audio and video systems. The video quality of thsi tv is beautiful. I could not be happier. I shopped around before I purchased and decided on this brand/model. There are many brands out on the market,it pays to be careful, read reviews and recommendations.

    If there are any cons to this TV is that the screen is shiny and glare can be a problem unless tv is carefully positioned. I placed it opposite a wall with no windows to avoid this. The controls are easy to navigate. I was able to pick up and move tv around by myself as it is not that heavy.

  • Amazing price for outstanding picture quality
    Couldn't pass up on this deal especially with additonal $200 off with 'samtv200' coupon.

    Loved the buying experience...no shipping costs or taxes....and the tv arrived in about 4 days in great shape by CEVA Logistics.

    Setup was easy especially with the many HDMI connections. The only problem I had was the 'need' to update all my home theater equipment...new blu-ray player, new audio equipment, new furniture to put under lcd.

    Love the ease of operating the device and the picture quality is incredible. I am coming from a high end projection tv (about 6 years old) that was HD, but there is no comparison to the new Samsung. Vivid colors, amazing detail and I've even been impressed that non-HD signals are even quite clear.

    All in all...a great buying experience....great deal...great tv. ...more info
  • Samsung is the best

    The LN46A650 is probably the best LCD flat screen I saw while searching for a TV. It has lived up to my expectations. The new models have come out, and it may be more difficult to find now. Still if you can find this on sale as merchants make room for the latest, you can't go wrong....more info
  • Love it!
    I know there are many HDTVs out there. I originally was planning for a Sony, sight unseen because of the previous non HDTV quality of the Sony sets I had. Then I read the CNET review for HDTVs and went to see the TVs. I think the Samsung was the best of the best. Sure, the LED backlight of the LN46A950 would have been nice, but not $1000 nicer. I am very pleased with my purchase and now need to couple it with a Blu-ray....more info
  • Review of Samsung LN46A650A1F High Definition LCD TV
    The image is superb with vivid colors. It's breath-taking. I watched the Masters golf tournament - it was so clear it was as if I was actually there. I am really impressed with this TV. I am receiving over-the-air high-definition TV in 1080i. Some stations are still broadcasting 480i pictures digitally. Even these programs, when viewed in their unexpanded, 480 format, are remarkably sharp. Much better than the old TV sets.

    The only caution I have is that Amazon claims that this set is a 120Hz model. The user manual states that it is 60Hz. However, there is an "Auto Motion Plus 120Hz" mode. You can select Auto Motion low, medium, and high settings. There is a caution that "If you enable 'Auto Motion Plus 120Hz,' noise may appear on the screen. If this occurs, set 'Auto Motion Plus 120Hz' to 'Off'"

    I have watched NHL hockey without the Auto Motion option on and did not notice blurring. And I have turned Auto Motion on without seeing noise. So I have no complaints....more info
  • 650 model, second time
    The first time, i ordered a 750 used model. I had the red cracking issue, even though it was listed used-like new by warehouse. so i asked amazon to return the 750, and purchased a 650. the item was cracked terribly at the corner as if it had been dropped or abused in assembly or xport. i returned both the 750 and the 650 that day.
    i was a little cautious on ordering another tv due to my bad luck. but the reimbursement process was very accomodating. it took almost 2 weeks, but credited right back to my card. no hassle.

    in the meantime the 650 model had dropped 150ish bucks from 2 weeks prior. i decided to give it another shot.

    this time a perfect tv arrived. sound is a little to be desired, but picture and design beautiful. after a little hassle, i am now very satisfied.

    i feel secure ordering and returning due to the ease of the reimbursement....more info
  • used-very good = looks brand new!
    I won't comment on all the specs, as there are a ton of reivews out there. Suffice it to say, Consumer Reports says this is the best LCD out there and one of the best tv's they've ever tested (RE: the 52" model; April 2009 issue).

    I wanted to comment on Amazon Warehouse deals. I ordered mine used-very good condition. It was listed as having minor damage to the housing. The TV was delivered by Pilot 2 days ago and looks brand new. My wife and in-laws all looked for a scratch, and if it's there, we can't find it.

    Maybe I just got lucky. I don't know that all the used-very good tv's are in this shape, but it was worth the gamble to me, esp. if the scratch had been on the stand or on the back of the unit. You have to cover the $50 shipping, but for $1200 you can't beat the price. ...more info
  • Great TV and price
    This is our second Samsung LN46A650. Great TV. Price was excellent. I was a little bit concerned purchasing over the internet. Transaction was smooth. The white glove delivery was great. The delivery of this Tv was better than the prior purchase from a well known big bog store....more info
  • Love It!
    I love this tv! It had been 10 years since I had bought a tv. And I have to admit I felt overwhelmed by everything it takes to choose a tv now days. The place to begin is taking a look at what's out there and determining your personal tastes. I had bought a 22 inch Samsung a year ago for my daughter's college room and feel in love with its picture. Though that was a consideration, I did compare Sonys, Panasonics, LGs, Sharps, the gamut.

    I knew my viewing room needed a 46 inch LCD set to fill its visual space. From there I started visiting big box stores, comparing picture quality and features. After reading all the articles, reviews, product descriptions and talking it over with some friends, I have to admit I don't believe anyone produces a better LCD set than Samsung. Sonys have a great name and history. But in picture quality, resolution, features, value, Samsung wins hands down. At least, as far as I am concerned.

    My biggest frustration was delivery day. Being a hands on kind of guy I research a ton and then I am willing to try things myself. I've been around things electronic and mechanical all my life and knew I could set up and calibrate the set myself, which I did. Only thing I wish Samsung did was produce a clearer explanation of settings in their set up guides. Both the quick guide and tv manual were thin on settings between cable boxes, receivers, and the tv. After a little experimentation I got the picture up and its been smooth sailing from there. Being the suspicious kind, I think this is why people spend tons of money having other people set up for them, and the manufacturers are complicit in this. Getting past that, I love the set. It's a wonderful addition and I would highly recommend expending the few extra dollars to buy the Samsung a650. Worth every dollar and more....more info
  • It doesn't get any better than Samsung
    I was hesitant not only buying my first HD TV, but purchasing a TV online rather in the store.

    First of all, the delivery I received from Pilot was superb and couldn't ask for anything better. They unfortunately arrived at my door when I was at work and forgot to call ahead of time. But they said they would be back at the end of the day and call in advance. When they arrived, two drivers were there to bring the package in, take it out of the box, place it on the tv stand, and test to see if it worked.

    As for the TV, I've had it for almost a month now and the picture is flawless. I'm sure you can calibrate it to where the picture is even better, but I'm speechless with the factory settings.

    Most negative comments have to do with the speakers and remote. The sound from the speakers really isn't too bad for everyday shows. But I also have a home theater system hooked up to it for sports and movies on tv. The wheel scroll on the remote is pretty interesting and can be a pain sometimes. As long as you remember to point the remote at the sensor on the TV, you will be fine.

    The RSS Link is a fun tool especially for reading news articles right on your TV!

    In all, you really can't get any better than Samsung especially at the Amazon price. And I'm sure with the new LED TVs now coming out, the price will start to go down. Many of the reviews on Amazon regarding this product helped influence this decision greatly, not to mention family saying if you don't choose Samsung, you'll be disowned lol!...more info
  • For the Money, the absolute best product on the market
    My new Samsung is an outstanding addition to my home entertainment system. The piece is ready for whatever 'upgrades' come our way for the next few years so no buyer's remorse or feelings of anxiety about the item being obsolete in a few months. The color is amazing, ease of use terific, but I just wish I could figure out how to make it stop playing the little jingle everytime you turn it on. For LCD technology, this has got to be the best picture, quality, and value money can buy. And the TOC, or that little touch of red around the cabinet; well I thought that was silly and useless and it did not play a factor in my decision to purchase; but wow does it look fantastic! That bit of color takes the edge off of what would be a big black shiny electronic inside a beautiful antique cathedral amoire. The red actually helps the transition from old world to modern and makes the tv feel more like a piece of furniture instead of a space age portal. Well done, Samsung!...more info
  • Excellent product

  • Great value for the Price!
    This is my first LCD TV and I absolutely love it. A lot of reviews have been written about features in great detail, so I will point out couple of points I find another newbie like me might find it helpful.

    1) Rather than have TV only remote, a universal remote would be much better.
    2) There is a present setting for 'Movie' mode. I think having another one for 'Sports' might be useful as well to give a good starting point to play around with preferences.

    I did not have any problems with auto shut off that some of the users pointed out .All in all, it is a great buy...hard to go wrong with this choice. ...more info

  • unreliable
    After I recieved my new Samsung LN46A650 46" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV with RED Touch of Color. I was very pleased for about a week. However it started to act up very quickly, I would turn it on and get sound, but no picture. After repeatedly turning it on and off several times it would finally get a picture. Each day it took longer and longer to get any picture at all. It got to the point that after a full hour of on and off I still couldn't get a picture. Samsung is sending someone out to look at it, but not for 2 weeks after I reported it. Being that I am laid up with a knee sugery recovery I was looking forward to enjoying my new TV. I would not recommend Samsung products do to their lack of customer support....more info
  • Amazing HDTV
    Very pleased with this purchase. After finally upgrading from our 22" TV to this 46' flat screen HDTV, the picture is amazing. Very clear, little glare. Great was to watch sport events. Wow!...more info
  • Best LCD so far
    This is my 3rd LCD TV in my house, and by far, it is the best performer. In fact, I felt that it is "too" clear at some point.

    The 120MHZ Auto Motion definitely adds more clarity. At times, it felt a little awkward (I guess I have to get used to this), so I tried between "low" and "medium" setting. Even a movie that I watched 100 times felt brand new.

    I have a 52" Sony LCD, and 2-year old 40" Samsung LCD, and in terms of clarity, this one is the winner. For movie viewing, Sony is pretty good too, but don't forget that they are more expensive. For sports viewing, there is no question. Get this one and stop shopping around.

    I don't like the sound quality as much as the picture quality, but you can always plug in an external speaker set, or route it through a sound system....more info

  • Excellent TV.... better than my Sony XBR
    I have only had this TV for a few days but I am very impressed. I have ALWAYS been loyal to Sony for video but I decided to try Samsung after reading all the rave reviews and watching it at my neighbors house.

    The picture in HD and non-HD are superior to my 46" Sony XBR4. Both sets are full HD with 120HZ. I am especially impressed with the Samsung non-HD picture. It is spectacular!

    One small yet impressive detail to note, especially if you have this TV in your bedroom, is it has a backlight remote. This is especially helpful when you are watching TV in the dark (when your spouse is sleeping). You can turn the backlight on and it will automatically turn off after you put it down after about 30 seconds. MORE IMPRESSIVE is that it has some type of motion detector on it. When you pick the remote back up it automatically lights up! Awesome.

    Note: The contrast setting out of the box is set to 95%. WAY TOO HIGH for my taste. It felt like my eyeballs were being burnt and the skin tones were washed out on people. Be sure to check that setting immediatley.

    Buy this TV you wont be sorry. I know there is a newer model out and I would guess it is the same or better... but I cant speak to that.

    UPDATE 5/13/09: One discernable low is that the screen is a bit too reflective. Considering LCD's are commonly less reflective than Plasma's I am little disappointed with the reflective property of this screen....more info
