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.


3,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio

25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio 3,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio will give you a superb picture, 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.


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 ¨C the fresh green of spring foliage, the intense blue of the summer sky.

Connectivity

wiselink
To make the Series 6 a true entertainment hub for any home, Samsung has incorporated advanced HD connectivity and networking capabilities that expand the HDTV¡¯s functionality. HDMI is the best performing interface for displaying an HD source on an HDTV.

Once connected, users can easily access device menus and manage and display content through the newly redesigned Wheel Key Remote control and the HDTV¡¯s sophisticated content management interface.

  • Component video: 1 rear (Y, Pb, Pr)
  • S-Video input: 1 rear
  • A/V inputs: 1 side/1 rear
  • PC Input (D-Sub): 1 rear
  • RF antenna inputs: 2
  • Premium audio: Improved sound quality with dedicated low-range speaker system

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
Features:
  • Touch of Color Bezel
  • 720p HD Resolution, 3,000:1 contrast ratio & fast 8ms response time
  • 1 HDMI Input, 1 Component Input, 1 S-video, 1 PC input
  • 3W x 2 Audio Output
  • Headphone Jack

Customer Reviews:

  • Nice picture but...
    Pros: Nice picture, remote well laid out, easy to set up, looks nice.

    Cons: Does not pull in digital channels as well as our sony XBR or Zenith converter box. Channel guide (favorites) could be better. Sound is weak (speakers on bottom) but ok for a kitchen TV.

    Why is it that many inexpensive digital converter boxes have sophistcated channel guides but these expensinve tv's do not?...more info
  • Samsung LN19A650 Flat Panel
    This LCD flat panel gets a great HD picture and sound with just an attic antenna. Menu system is easy to follow and setup is very easy. Would have been nice to have a SLEEP button on the remote rather than having to go through the TOOLS menu. Also, I was disappointed to find you cannot do a picture slide show using a USB flash drive and the USB port on the TV like I can on my Samsung LN52A750 52-Inch 1080p DLNA LCD HDTV with RED Touch of Color....more info
  • Very nice TV set
    This is my first digital TV. My existing TV is a 19" RCA XL-100 I bought new in 1976. It has the old two-button remote using ultrasonic, no batteries. Still works great but I thought I'd just get a new TV and have both. Join the 21st century kind of thing. I heard that Samsung was the best brand for quality, and Sony was the same because Sony used Samsung parts. That's what I had heard. I almost bought a 19" Sony Bravia, I mean I was *that* close to buying one, but saw a picture showing the lame way it stands almost vertically (!) on the counter with a shaky center of gravity, ready to topple, and read a review that talked about that, where Sony expects you to tether the TV to the wall with a strap to prevent tipping. Very lame. So, it was a Samsung for me.

    The Touch of Color thing was never explained well in the advertising. You pay more money just for a different color of case, it seems to be. Yeah, that's what I did. It is a tiny bit pretty, a good thing, when compared to the funereal black of other digital appliances.

    I took it out of the box, the stand was already attached even though the manual read like I needed to attach it. The instructions to attach it looked a bit confusing so I'm glad it was already attached. I placed it on the counter, read a little more, the first thing to do is have your TV scan for stations. Ok, did that. I am not on cable so I knew I had to attach external rabbit ears. My antenna had two U-clips while the TV had a protruding female coax jack with screw threads on the outside. My adaptor to convert the U-clips to a male coax connector was a push-on type and I think I had to damage a few threads on the TV jack, not sure, when I pushed the coax connectors together. But it worked and I get great digital picture.

    You know, the thing no one points about about through-the-air digital reception is how perfect it is. We all know that through-the-air analog gives you various amounts of snow/static/fuzz at times, depending on how close you are to the source and how you position the antenna. That is, you will experience degrees of reception. We all grew up knowing that. However, with digital, there are no degrees of reception. No fuzzy. You either get no signal, or a perfect and beautiful HD picture. I bet the cable companies don't want you to know that. After all, they got their start as the answer to snowy analog reception in remote areas. And how many people who currently are paying for cable would ever disconnect their cable to discover what I am saying? Might save a few bucks in this economy. And, at least where I live, there are several extra through-the-air digital channels that are not advertised anywhere! Who knew they even existed? I was pleasantly surprised! I watch them!

    Anyway, the remote control looks standard, lots of buttons, the major ones are obvious and user-friendly. Again, my last remote had only two buttons: 1) channel changer clunk-clunk-clunk, and 2) ON, volume high; volume medium, volume low; OFF. So, all these new buttons on this new rmeote are so much fluff to me.

    There is one slight bother about the case. On the front right, you can touch the case and change channels, do the volume, and a few other controls that I haven't played with. Ok, but only the on/off button has an LED to guide you. For all other controls, you cannot see them or the labels for them unless room light or sunlight reflects on them just right. I had to shine a flashlight on them to see them. After a few weeks, I can guess their position, but sometimes I turn down the volume when I really wanted to change the channel. It gets slightly annoying. If it's late at night or I am in no mood to fuss with it, I just grab the remote from whereever it is and use that.

    Yes, I would get another Samsung, hands down. I am thinking about buying another flat screen TV soon. But, I also think not all Bravias have that bad design flaw of which I spoke, and maybe getting a Bravia might be an equally good idea for my next TV.

    Hope this helps.

  • Great picture!
    I got this tv to replace one on my kitchen counter. It is connected to a cable and the HD channels are fabulous. The black with the tiny red tint is beautiful, but the picture quality is great. Well pleased....more info
  • pretty nice for kitchen...
    Bought this TV for our kitchen. Picture quality is great and sound is not bad. The TV is also a good looker. Am pretty happy with my purchase. Get HD channels by air, and the pickup quality is also good.
    However, I would make a couple of changes:
    - Redesign the remote. It looks as "old-age" and the TV looks "new-age"!!
    - TV start/stop time is slow...after you press the button....more info
  • Samsung 19-inch 720p LCD HDTV
    Excellent TV! I did a lot of research and bought 4 TV's before I settled on this one. I would have gotten the 22-inch but it would not fit in my space. The color and clarity is awesome and it has very decent audio. I have no complaints other than it takes a few seconds for the TV to turn on and off. But that is no biggee!! Very pleased....more info
  • LCD TV Model LN19A650AID
    Packaging and shipment were great. Well satisfied with product, except sound is not satisfactory. Have made all sound adjustments I can, but still sounds like a metallic vibration in speakers. I am contemplating returning unit, or buying a set of speakers. Otherwise is a great unit for my computer room....more info
  • Good picture, too quiet, cheap connectors
    I bought this TV for our kitchen, the first HD TV I've owned so nothing to compare it to. I'm pleased with the picture quality when the programming is HD, nice and sharp. However, the vertical viewing angle for optimum picture is very shallow. Even a little up or down difference changes the picture quality drastically. The side to side viewing angle is adequate. I like the various options for changing the picture size, depending on the broadcast. On the down side, the power cord falls out of the socket on the back of the TV with the slightest movement, but this can be fixed by wrapping a couple layers of duct tape around the plug for a snug fit. The TV is too quiet with Dolby broadcasts, even at full volume. The fix is to use amplified computer speakers. They have to be plugged into the headphone jack in back for the volume control on the remote to work. Unfortunately, the headphone jack is a piece of crap; the miniplug to the external speakers has to be situated in it just so. Otherwise, I don't get sound out of both speakers, or I get hum. I don't have a fix for that. Another annoyance is that when I change channels, the channel information in the upper left corner doesn't stay on long enough to read, and there's no adjustment for that. All in all I am reasonably happy with my purchase, despite the cheapness of some of the connectors and the other flaws....more info

  • Samsung 19" LCD HDTV
    Put this TV in the kitchen. It just fit in the space build in for our old TV below the cabinet. Very very nice! Great picture, sound everything. We looked at many less expensive brands at wallyworld ect. Sure glad we spent the extra. Saved well over $100 on amazon. This is my first review. Had to do it because the TV IS GREAT. We also have a 50" 650 series. Spend the extra and get the best!...more info
  • Poor vertical viewing angle
    The picture is OK but the TV is mounted high on a kitchen wall and when viewed from any angle below horizintal the picture tends to look like a photo negative. Very disappointed. I bought this, my first Samsung, thinking the name implied a reputation for quality....more info
  • Love this TV!
    We had been looking for a TV for our kitchen. Very happy with this one. More bells and whistles than some other similar priced models and the picture is outstanding. One minor complaint -- the desciption mentioned that it swivelled. The screan tilts up and down, but does not swivel....more info

  • Wonderful enjoyable TV
    This TV is a joy to watch. It has a great picture for a small TV. We are very satisfied with the TV and delivery from Amazon....more info
  • Great little TV except for sound...
    This is the third Samsung TV I have purchased (own an LN46A860 and an LN32A450 - guess I am a Samsung devotee). I purchased my other TVs from local outlets but after checking prices, picked this smaller 19" up from Amazon. I have to say that I could have gone with other brands for cheaper but am sold on Samsung for quality. My other two TVs are outstanding (especially the LN46A860) so I figured I'd spend up a bit for another Samsung. The LN19A650 has the same great looks and aesthetics of other late model Samsung LCDs but in a smaller package. I needed a TV for the kitchen that would fit under cabinets while on a stand and this one fits the bill. Picture is outstanding, even though on this TV I am using direct cable hookup (no cable box). For the Super Bowl, I hooked up the Comcast HD box I usually use on the 32" and this little 19" provided outstanding HD (via the one HDMI port) for the whole game as we moved back and forth from the living room (and the big screen) to the kitchen. One nice feature on the stand is that it tilts to angles and can even be tilted all the way back to mount the TV on a wall. You can also unattach the stand and use a normal flat panel mount.

    Four stars instead of five only because of the sound setup - as mentioned on previous reviews, the speakers point down so if you want loud, you need to crank the sound almost to nearly max volume. Doesn't distort, just a bit annoying that you have to use this much volume control. Actually this isn't a deal killer for me - as I said, I only purchased this for kitchen use which doesn't necessitate that I have the TV that loud but if someone wants to use this in a larger room without adding a speaker system they might be disappointed.

    Overall - pleased again with the Samsung quality on LCD TVs. The Touch of Color looks great even on this smaller TV, the included remote works great and by using it I have been able to get a few true HD stations by using the remote to pick up QAM channels when not hooked up to an HD box.
