Samsung LN46B650 46 LCD TV – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
I was a little bit leary of trying out the Samsung LN46B650 46 LCD TV. After all, Samsung has never been my favorite brand. But I was pleasantly surprised with my viewing experience when I watched a couple of my favorite movies on it the other night. Unfortunately, I was also unpleasantly surprised, too, and I’ll tell you all about it if you’ll just read on.
The one thing that I really liked about the Samsung LN46B650 46 LCD TV was the quality of the color which was very sharp and realistic. And the blacks were especially sharp. So many times you get bleeding when you’ve got shadows in the film or the action is taking place at night. But in each of the movies I watched all images were very well defined and the contrast was extremely sharp.
One of the negatives about the Samsung LN46B650 46 LCD TV however, is it’s glossy screen. At certain angles there was quite a glare on my movies. However, I do enjoy having the sunlight streaming into my living room so I’m only going to take off half a point for this one.
But what I found extremely ugly, but others may enjoy, was the Yahoo! Widgets that are programmed into the Samsung LN46B650 46 LCD TV. In my opinion, the response time was way too slow. And if I want to check the weather or my stock portfolio while I’m watching a movie, I can do all that with my laptop. As I said, others may find this feature attractive but for me it’s a waste of money having to pay for something I’ve no intention of using. But since I like the quality of this TV, I may look around to see if they offer a model without the widgets.
