Advantages: Full HD, beautiful design, internet access
Disadvantages: I have read bad reviews about the sound but not in my opinion
The Samsung LE40C650 is a 40 inch full HD, LCD TV. The TV is black with a rose tint colour and sits on a black base and can swivel left and right. It also comes with the ability to be wall mounted. On the stand the TV takes up an area of roughly 100cm wide by about 70cm high and a depth of 30cm. The screen resolution is 1920x1080 and uses a Hyper Real Engine to enhance the picture quality. The sound output comes from two down firing 10w speakers and uses Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Pulse and SRS Theatre Sound. It comes with all the usual connections as well as an internet port, 4 HDMI connections, PC in and two USB ports. It has all the main features such as a timer and teletext but many other ones like a digital noise filter, WiFi adapter support and Internet@TV. It also has in built Freeview.
All these technical specifications come together to give you an awe inspiring TV watching experience. The picture quality is of the highest order but when used in conjunction with a dedicated HD channel in manages to step up another couple of notches. Sports and movies come to life right in front of your eyes giving a magical experience for the whole family. The picture quality is excellent whatever angle you view the TV from. I have linked my TV to a Blu-ray player and additional speakers but even without these the sound is excellent, even at high volumes.
The internet feature is very useful especially if you already have a wireless network at home. Although the amount of apps available is still relatively small there are some useful ones, especially BBC iPlayer for the little ones. You can also connect your TV with your PC or mobile to share pictures and videos.
Fortunately for me this TV fitted in the same area my old one did, however even if you have to move other furniture around this 40inch TV doesn't appear to be very intrusive and will sit fairly flat against a wall, even when on the stand. I purchased mine for just under £800. As with most electrical goods I would suggest shopping around and using the internet to check prices before purchasing as there are always deals to get. The screen also appears very durable; I have had the TV for a year, as I often find a new set of handprints from my one year old when I haven't been looking!
The Samsung LE40C650 is a beautifully designed and well built HD TV. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys their TV and especially if you have access to HD channels.
Summary: Excellent HD TV with some great added features
