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. Touch of Color

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.


Super Clear Panel

clear panel chart
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.

15,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio

25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio 15,000:1 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 Input (D-Sub): 1
  • RF antenna inputs: 2
  • HDMI-CEC
  • 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

After ordering and receiving this product I was a little disappointed at the lack of 120hz and some other info that amazon gave that was false.
I thought about returning it and going with the LN32A550, but I decided against it and kept the 650.

This T.V. has expectational picture quality on HD channels, but the regular SD look a little grainy, but what T.V. isn't like that?

Xbox 360 via HDMI looks amazing, just wish I could have had that 120hz.

I also plug my Dell XPS M1330 laptop in via HDMI and surf the internet in full HD glory :)

Great T.V. even if I had my hopes up for more with the advertising Amazon did.

Would recommend. :)

Amazing TV for the price but Amazon advertises it with the 120Hz refresh rate spec and it doesn't have it. It's only at 60Hz so every once in a while in 1080i mode you see a jitter that you wouldn't see with a 120Hz set. Pretty upset with Amazon for not realizing that in this Samsung line the 120Hz sets start with the 40" and up models.

Besides that, for the price it may be the best 32" 1080p set on the market.

[[ASIN:B00141AYR8 Samsung LN32A650 32-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV with RED Touch of Color]We ordered this TV and received it on 11/20/08. We set it up, which was easy and went well. Within 3 days it began to automatically shut itself off. This increased with frequency each time we turned it on. By Thanksgiving day it had shut itself off so much we stopped using it. The following day we tried again. It shut itself off 8 times in a few hours. I called One Call and could not get through. Left a message but no one has called back,yet. Sent an Email and received a reply that I had to call Samsung. Apparently One Call does not have anything to do with product malfunction/repair/replacement. Their policy seems to be that a buyer can send the new product with problems back but must pay shipping to do so. The number for Samsung provided by One Call was wrong. I called the number on the Samsung booklet, was told that they have to send out a repairman and that someone would call us in 2-3 business days. We are still waiting--have another day to wait. I asked the Samsung representative why they don't just replace the TV since it is not usable and has a major problem out of the box. I was told that they do not replace new products with problems until they have tried repair, first. This is very frustrating. If I wanted a refurb, I could have bought one and saved a lot of money. Nearly two weeks with an expensive new TV we cannot use. It was our first effort to order a major purchase from the Internet from an unknown provider that was highly rated by Amazon users. Our plan, if this went well, was to purchase a larger TV for our family room and possibly a smaller one for a bedroom with electronics and an updated computer to go with them.Read more ›

In a word this TV is awesome in picture clarity,colors,HD,appearance and anything else you want to say, it is truly "a touch of class". Get this TV if you are interested in HD display. I own many Samsung LCDs( 3 52" and 2 32-37") and all of them has a fanastic picture. Ordered every set from Amazon.com. They all came on time by CEVA transport Service and I nevered had to have them take it out of the box and see if it would work. There was never any "dead pixels" or problems with any of the sets.

The sound is OK, but BETTER if you run it through a next-gen receiver with HDMI TrueHD Dolby 5.1 to 7.1 sound or higher receiver. If you're worried about ordering such a large Item online I understand the fears,especially if you order from "any" of the New York State ventors, you are going to have some kind of problem.

BUT not with Amazon.com. you can order with no fears,no problems. Get this TV!

I had initially looked for a monitor for my PC in the range of 24-28", but saw that some were using HDTVs for computer displays. After doing weeks of research, I finally decided on getting this display. For computer monitor use, this thing is amazing, it makes my 20" LCD look so tiny and the color on this thing makes my old one look like it has a yellow tint to it. I love the picture quality of this Samsung.

If you are looking for a awesome PC monitor, this is it. Be sure to buy a DVI -> HDMI cable and connect it to HDMI2 and set the name of HDMI2 to PC. That will cut down on the input lag significantly. While gaming, I do not notice any input lag at all. I have not used this very much for watching TV, but what I have watched was in 1080i and it looked great.

The first LN32A650 I got form amazon had the plastic frame detaching from the rest of the unit at the top. After calling them, they sent out a replacement unit and this seems one to be flawless(no cosmetic damage or dead/stuck pixels). My experience was CEVA was good and I would recommend it. Overall, I like this HDTV a lot and I would recommend it!

I purchased the television from best buy and got them to negotiate so I could have the television that day. I brought the tv home got it all setup. This is our Secondary tv so all the good toys stay on the big tv. I hooked it up to our U-verse through component cables. I hooked up our HD-DVD Player through the HDMI. All HDMI cables used are 1.3 cables. I then went to turn the tv on. As its booting up it sounds like my Playstation 3 making some melody when starting. Not the biggest fan of that stupid noise. I turn on the tv and set it to 1080i and watch. Everything is coming on clear as it should a lot better than our big tv but go figure for a 480 broadcast the smaller the better. Then I turned the tv on to the 1080i broadcast and just as it should the picture clears up and looks amazing. Next I grabbed a movie that was in "1080p" from our HD-DVD collection. I threw it in. I actually have to say that it looks better on the Samsung than our other tv (Mitsubishi 46" 1080p). I played with the remote which is a little big for a remote in my opinion and changed some settings. I ended up changing the audio settings in the tv. I was very impressed with the level audio sounds. Between tv and commercials the audio wasn't blasting and then getting lower. A feature which is huge if you actually watch tv. I do like the sound quality but it is lacking some bass depth in the sound. I have yet to test the features that are beyond extra like the link thing but I love the tv minus the noise when starting and shutting down. I mean come on Samsung Really???
Ultimately I am a junky when it comes to technology and as this goes I would 100% recommended this tv to anyone who wants an amazing 32" tv even without the 120hz (which is pointless unless you have a 40" and up)
