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.

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. A wide variety of multimedia devices can be connected to the set through any one of the four Simplay compliant HDMI 1.3 inputs (including one on the side), and the handy HDMICEC feature lets you control all your CEC-enabled peripherals using just one remote.

Connect HD digital devices like disc players, game consoles, and satellite dish components into the 2 rear connections and use the side-mounted input for cameras, camcorders, and laptops. 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.

All Connections
  • HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface version 1.3): 4 (3 rear/1 side)
  • Ethernet port
  • Component video: 2 (Y, Pb, Pr)
  • S-Video input: 1 side/1 rear
  • A/V inputs: 1 side/1 rear
  • PC Inpuy (D-Sub): 1
  • RF antenna inputs: 2
  • HDMI-CEC
  • Premium audio: Improved sound quality with dedicated low-range speaker system

Super Patterned Vertical Alignment

Samsung’s Super Patterned Vertical Alignment (SPVA) panel provides a 178-degree viewing angle from all four axes

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

Customer Reviews:

  • Look no further!!!!!!
    Look no further than this TV! I am a Verizon Fios tech, doing installations everyday on tv's, so I've seen a broad spectrum of brands,makes,models,plasma's,lcd's etc. This tv has an amzing picture, and not to be biased, probably the best picture I've seen. Now I'm sure using FIOS doesnt hurt, but even still, the picture is truly breathtaking. I have paired up with a SONY Blu-ray, and SONY soundbar(which has exceeded my expectations also)....more info
  • The Best
    I've been more than pleased with my Samsung purchases in the past (40" LCD HD TV, Home Theater, upconverting DVD etc) but this new 52" TV is the very best I've ever seen much less owned. Blu-Ray is great, and the upconverted DVD's are nearly as sharp. Dealing with Amazon direct is a pleasure, simple and quick. Thanks so much.

    ...more info
  • Excellent TV
    I've had this TV for 3 weeks and except for the glare, this TV is awesome. Picture quality is the best in its range. Audio and video are very clear. It was very easy to setup (less than 5 minutes). There are more than enough external connections for all the devices one would want to hook up to a TV. The computer and network connections are a bonus. Excellent Price for quality. Delivery was on time and they even helped unpack and did initial setup. Thanks Amazon. ...more info
  • Quality product
    Excellent product. Nothing to complain about. Just ensure you have high quality HDMI cables (as opposed to cheap HDMI cables) to enjoy the quality of the TV....more info
  • Samsung 52" LCD TV
    We received this TV quickly. It was packaged well, and we are pleased with it. We have ordered from Amazon.com several times and have always been happy....more info
  • Awesome TV
    For the price this is the most awesome tv I have ever owned. You will need to adjust the setting a bit for "dark" atmosphere shows, but it can be done easily. Tv speakers are decent, but more than likely if you have money for this tv you probably spent money on a sound system too....more info
  • Excellent LCD TV
    I bought this Samsung LN52A650 for about a month now. We are very happy with the ease of setting up, the super clear picture effect and the good price. Compared with our 52" Sharp 1080p LCD we bought near two years ago, the Samsung is far more better than the Sharp 52" LCD we have. We read a lot of reviews from Amazon's customers before we made our purchase. the very high ratings helped us to go for this TV. Amazon's service is very good. But the shipping company's service really destroys amazon's good reputation. We missed the first time delivery because the driver came an hour earlier than the scheduled time. When we called for redelivery, we were not given any options but stay home and wait from 9:00 am to 1:30pm Mon. to Fri. Otherwise, we were told to go to their warehouse to pick it up (which is more than an hour drive one way). In the end, my husband had to take a day off to get the tv delivered to our home. Now we are happy with the tv. We just need to forget the pain of how it got here. ...more info
  • samsung 52 lcd TV
    I purchased this TV thinking since it was the top of the line there would be no problem. I purchased it April 6,09, it arrived April 15. May 5th we were watching TV with friends. The TV went blank. We went through all the troublshootings suggested and nothing worked. So now the TV we had less than a month is at the shop getting fixed. It's under warranty but that's not the point! If I had to do it over again I would not purchase this TV. My neighbor has the same TV and it continues to cut off, and the warranty is over....more info
  • Samsung HDTV 52"
    The delivery was prompt. The set up done quickly. I had to request certain hookups from the set up team which they did, reluctantly.
    The TV itself is large and clear. Sports are especially enhanced. The Amazon price was the best I could find after thorough research. I would highly recommend this product and Amazon as its seller.

  • GREAT TV!!!
    I have had this tv for over 6 months now and couldnt be happier!!! This tv is the cream of the crop!!! I reviewed many different tv's online. I did like a year's worth of research before buying this tv and everyone said this was the best! I usually dont believe what the manufacturer says so I rely on the "honest" peoples reviews say. I'd say almost 95% of the people said this was a great tv and they were right. I also use cnet to get a good idea of what I am buying bc they are an independent organization that does reviews and are usually right on with their reviews.

    The only bad thing about this tv I would say is that non HD tv shows look like crap to me. I have a Tivo HD and HD DVR from my cable company. When watching in HD the picture is perfect but when watching non HD it is very grainy. Thats only bc my expensive crap cable company (Comcast) doesnt have all the HD channels yet. But I can deal with it bc this tv as many options to make the picture look semi decent.

    The delivery service was top notch! They called me a day before it was to be delivered which I thought was great! They came within the time specified. The 2 men brought it in took it out of the box for me and plugged it in to make sure it works.

    The setup was very easy. I did it myself. I bought all the wires before hand so I could hook up all my components at once.

    I also bought PS3 the day it came. I bought it mainly for the bluray player bc many people including cnet says its the best player on the market. And thay are not wrong. The piture in 1080p is flawless!! I love my PS3 and this tv!!!

    All in all I would have to say this is the best TV and I am extremely happy with it and couldnt have asked for a better tv!!

    I hope this review helps. I dont usually write reviews but I thought this tv warranted a review.... ...more info
  • Awsome TV
    Received TV as expected with no problems. This was a refurbished unit and its look brand new when received and to top it off at a very low price. Picture quality is excelent especialy when viewing DVD movies it makes a big difference. Blueray movies picture quality is even more clear and sharp. I use the HDMI connection of the Blueray player to the TV to get top quality viewing. I recommend this TV and also buying from Amazon....more info
  • Tv only worked for 41 days
    We loved our Samsung LN52A650. The picture was all we expected and more. On the 41st day the sound icon came on all by itself, and turned the sound off. We would turn it back up, and it would again turn itself off. When this was happening we were unable to turn the tv off without unplugging it. After three service calls they finally replaced the main board and another componet. Now working, but I'm worried it could happen again. Would never recommend this tv to others. ...more info
  • Ecstatic
    Had some concerns over product based on other reviewers' comments on room glare and red case decoration. The room glare is non-existent and I would have never noticed the dark red on the case if I had not looked for it when I unpacked the set.

    As far as color and sound....everything is simply outstanding. This set replaces a two year old HDTV (that is now in our bedroom) and surpasses the old set in every facet of operation....more info
  • Very good for the price
    Just purchased this TV from another retailer. I looked at it for about an hour before deciding to purchase it. I was on my way home with it, when my wife called and asked if I bought a TV. I reluctantly said yes (I thought I was in trouble). She said good, because my rear projection TV just blew. She said she was seeing 3 of everything. I got it home and got it connected to my HD cable. This is with out a doubt, the best TV that has ever been in my house. The picture is so clear, much clearer than the rear projection ever was. The sound is a little tinty, adequate for regular TV, but not for movies and sporting events. I have a 7.1 home theater for that, so no worries here. Overall, I am very pleased....more info
  • Amazing Picture!!!
    I shopped this TV for over a month waiting for a price drop. Bought it from Amazon finally because they were the cheapest. I couldn't be happier with the quality of the picture. The shipping experience was also top notch with great communication and follow through. Kudos to Amazon for really stepping up and becoming competitive in this market! You will not be disappointed in this TV or the shipping from Amazon!...more info
  • Good purchase
    I purchased this TV an year back, not from amazon. Was checking to see the current prices. The prices has gone down a little bit but not too much,which could also mean that this is still a popular buy.I really like the TV and did not have any issues and i would give a 5 star rating. I did a lot of research before i purchased the TV like everybody else, and came up with this and i have no regrets...yet.
    ...more info
  • Unbelieveable picture!!!!!!!
    This TV is incredible!!!!- the clarity of the picture is amazing, especially the sporting events in HD. We just got this TV yesterday and we're in complete awe at the picture-the HD movies from cable look almost 3D and even some of them look like live TV!. At $1,699.99 from Best Buy with free delivery and free haulaway of the old TV this was absolutely the best purchase that I've ever made!....more info
  • Crisp, Bright and Smart
    I am a huge fan! The picture is perfect to me very crisp even on fast action movies. It is very bright as well, which is perfect in my sunny living room. Finally I think Smart because the integration with the other Samsung product is very smooth, one remote for all without even thinking about it. The plus is you can configure your stocks, weather and local news to show up on the screen. Oh and did I mention the HDTV receiver integrated, it automatically configured a bunch of channel found in the cable; as I only use an Apple TV and a Blu ray player, finding some HDTV channel on the airwave was perfect... loving this product....more info
  • This HDTV Is Worth It!!!!!
    Recently purchased this HDTV in April 09', I owned a Samsung DLP before this one. This LCD HDTV is amazing!! Have it hung on my wall, looks like it was meant to be there.. Have my PS3,xBox360 connected to it via HDMI, the 4HDMI's come in very handy. They look remarkable. Blue Rays..makes you feel like you are there, they look soo real it actually freaks some of my friends out. Definitly Worth It. Going to connect my Onkyo 7.1 surround to it this weekend too. Can't go wrong with this HDTV!! Compared to the Sony Bravia which is next on my list, this is far better. Only one that can beat this LCD is the new Samsung LED HDTV!!!!!...more info
  • Excellent Picture out of the box
    This LCD is hard to beat at $1750. This was and is the best deal in the market. I have owned some Samsung products in the past that I was disappointed with. Knowing (2) people with Pioneer 5020 Plasmas, I have no buyers remorse w/ the LN52A650. As others will claim, there is a glare on the screen with direct light. 120hz seems like a gimmick, when turned on (High), it actually gives me a headache. If you want to be blown away with excellent picture quality and insane colors, this is the TV to buy....more info
  • Samsung Has Struck Gold
    I was reluctant to buy this tv over the internet, especially since I was going off of peer reviews and Consumer Reports (which ranked the tv the highest in its category), but.....I'm so glad I did! It has excellent picture, excellent sound (when I'm not using my sound system), 4 HDMI ports, USB ports for ease of showing digital memoirs (pics, video, etc.). I give it overall an A+. The only MINOR downside is that there is glare when viewing from wide angles, that's it...I promise. The only reason I'd get another tv would be to change to OLED instead of the LCD. Hands down, perfect tv....more info
  • GREAT TV
    GREAT TV EASY TO NAVIGATE THE SYSTEM. I THOUGHT I WOULD RECEIVE HD PICTURE QUALITY! FOUND OUT I STILL NEED TO HAVE A CONVERTER FOR THIS. MY SON HAS THE SAME TV AND HIS PICTURE IS FANTASTIC. THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE AN ANALOG PERSON IN A DIGITAL WORLD. GUESS I'LL SWITCH TO SATALITE BECAUSE CABLE WON'T SUPPLY ME ONE AFTER 20 PLUS YEARS WITH THEM. I WOULD AND HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS TV TO FRIENDS....more info
  • Great Picture with OK sound.
    My cousin just bought this television after her 32 inch samsung projector screen television started to act up. The picture on the TV was gorgeous but lacked quality sound unlike her other television. So if you're gonna buy this television, I suggest buying a home theater system as well. Overall great TV. 4/5!!...more info
  • love this tv
    Its late im a little tired but i want to leave a review. I had the tv for around 2 months and i love it. I have not tried all the settings, everything is still set at the factory default and the picture is super clear with directtv hd. Can't wait to try verion fios. The amazon free shipping was a plus and the delivery men brought in the tv and would not allow me to do anything. They unpacked it, put the base on it, put it on top of my entertainment center and hooked up the hd box. They even gave me a demonstration of the tv. This was my first purchase from amazon and it was great along with the tv which was cheaper than the big box stores. Im ready to purchase a samsung 46 for my living room....more info
  • Great TV compared to the other LCD brands
    I purchased this TV in March and have been very happy with it so far. HD Cable is excellent, although some stations are better than others. BlueRay through my PS3 is excellent. The TV is very easy to set up, use, and the picture and sound quality is excellent. I only see "jaggies" on certain TV stations which seems to be due to a slow broadcast signal. I don't notice any problems with BlueRay. If you're comparing this to the Sony, or anything else in it's price range with similar features buy this one. You won't be disappointed. I hope that the TV lasts for a long time but that I can only wait to see. And, if you're buying this make sure you get a BlueRay player and a subscription to rent them cause you'll never want to go back to a normal DVD again!...more info
  • frustrated with samsung
    we purchaced this samsung 52 in tv and within a week had a 2-3inch wide pixelating line running from top of screen to the bottom just to the left of center after trying several adjustments and checking our hdmi cable we contacted samsung. they sent someone out to investigate the problem only to find out the the tv was defective. the lcd panel was defective. samsung would not replace the tv they would only repair it. we had purchased a new tv not a reconditioned one and we were not compensated at all. the repair and decision from samsung was not handled in a timely manner either it took also a month and required many phone conversations with samsung saying they would call back when in fact that was never the case. we would not recommend buying a samsung tv since the company does not stand behind their merchandise. ...more info
