|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 6ms (milliseconds). |
|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 ‘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. |
|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 percent of this standard. Samsung LCD HDTVs use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp backlights to give you 92 percent coverage of the NTSC standard, ensuring truer, more breathlessly vivid colors. |
Samsung's Wide Color Enhancer 3 technology delivers more brilliant colors by expanding the gamut of color expression into a third axis, creating a 3D diagram of luminance. This creates a dynamic display of on-screen color and allows traditionally weak colors, such as green and blue, to look vivid and deep. In addition, red colors are enhanced to provide strong colors across the spectrum and the perfect balance of RGB.
|80,000:1 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 TVs give the most stunning realistic picture quality ever.|
|In 2008, Samsung created its unique Touch of Color (ToC) design, which uses dual-injection molding to coat a translucent, colored surface to achieve an attractive crystalline appearance. The latest evolution of Samsung's ToC design begins with a deep piano black bezel that fades into distinct chrome that finishes as light ruby highlights. The intensity of the color subtly changes depending upon the viewing angle, and further accentuates the TV's slim bezel.|
|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.

Also, the swivel stand is perfect and will be a must have for me in all my future purchases.
Now for the bad news! I purchased this new HDTV to take advantage of being newly able to access AT&T Uverse Fiberoptics which is supposed to give you the best picture. However connecting Samsung LN52B630 to Uverse receiver via HDMI is problematic! It causes audio and video disturbances such as juttering in and out. It causes the DVR to become non-responsive to remote or to do something crazy like fast forward when you press pause.
On page 19 of the Series 6 (630, 640, and 650) Samsung LCD TV User Manual it says: HDMI Black Level - This function is active only when an external device is connected to the TV via HDMI. The HDMI Black Level function MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH ALL EXTERNAL DEVICES"
If you have this tv with AT&T Fiber-optic Uverse DVR and find that you are having all sort of issues with your ATT Uverse DVR remote, the problem is the HDMI cable between certain Samsung models (including this one) and the Uverse receiver. The best solution is to connect with component cables.
It is a known issue for several years. You can google Uverse Samsung HDMI to read more about it. I haven't had any problems connecting LN52B630 with HDMI to any DVD player or any other component. I have not tried connecting LN52B630 to HD from Cox or DirecTV or Dish which are my other options. AT&T replied: Sorry for the delay in response, had to do some additional research. Without getting too technical, it looks like your TV model uses "enhanced HDMI algorithms". Basically, this is mfg's own idea of how HD & digital pictures should look on their TV. In this particular case, trying to get Darker blacks, and then bring out brighter more vibrant colors. This requires the HDMI components sending the feed to send simultaneous multiple feeds which the TV can then overlay. The TV is attempting to, and expecting this, but only getting the 1 feed (note this is standard HDMI functionality). So your TV is then darkening down, to bring out the black, but then has nothing to overlay and bring out the brighter & more sharp color. There *SHOULD* be an option to disable this "enhancement", though chances are, you will never find it easily. This is actually very much illegal as well, to be "HDMI Complaint", yet have your own custom HDMI firmware standard. This is very much a problem right now in the industry. A few providers do honor these "enhancement modifications", though you will find most have will have issues, since modifying the HDMI firmware is against the usage policy of the HDMI standard. and The issue with HDMI is not technically with the STBs, though with most of the HD Tv manufactures, using custom HDMI setups not conforming to standards. The ATT STBs conform directly with HDMI standards, no extra fancy or custom features. This causes problems with $1k-$2k plasma/lcd makers which try to make their HDMI "better" by not conforming to standards. It is unfortunate that ATT generally gets the blame for this.
I turned off all the algorythms (not just the blacker black one) and still had the crazy uverse receiver response to remote commands using the HDMI cable. I removed the HDMI cable and replaced with component cables and the problem disappears and the picture actually improves so something is really screwy with the HDMI connection between Samsung LN52B630 and AT&T Uverse receiver.
UPDATE: I found a better solution - everything HDMI cables into my Onkyo HTX-22HDX Ultra-Compact HD Home Theater System (Black) and then one hdmi cable goes from there to the Samsung TV and that took care of the problem!
The TV looks great mounted on my wall and I even like the TOC red. I was unsure if I would but it's very subtle.
I had never ordered a TV online before so I was a little leery, BUT CEVA delivered my TV 3 days before my estimated delivery date and was top notch. They unpack the TV and tested to make sure it was not damaged and in working order. Very smooth, in and out in minutes. I would never hesitate to order another TV from Amazon.
Overall I am extremely pleased with my purchase and my service from Amazon!
I was in the plasma vs LCD debate for a while and decided that I needed/wanted the brightness of an LCD, didn't want to worry about any burn in issues (I know they are almost non-existent today anyway). I wanted 1080p and most plasma sets with 1080p are close to this price point as well. I debated for about a month between last years ln52a630 and the ln52a750, and which one to buy. The matte screen on the 630 was its highlight for me, but there was a sacrifice in the contrast ratio and other miscellaneous little "bells and whistles". The A750 being the more expensive model, the price point dropped so much, it was now pretty much an even swap. Hearing about the problems associated with the 750 including glare, halo and TOC flaking issues, I decided the 630 with its matte screen was the TV for me.
So, I price shopped the A630 for a few weeks until I stumbled across the new version of the set, the ln52b630. A little more money is WELL spent when upgrading to this TV. The contrast ratio is double 40,000:1 vs 80,000:1, and even dominates last years 50,000:1 A750's contrast ratio. Again, this TV also has the MATTE SCREEN! Almost no glare issues in my very bright viewing room, that has multiple windows and a sliding glass door.
The TV's picture quality is the best my friends and I have seen so far from an LCD. Deepest blacks and brightest brights are the comments I have been hearing when people see this TV in operation. The clarity in blu-ray 1080p with 120hz is breathtaking, you almost don't want to take your eyes off the screen. I have it connected to Dish Network's HD service and the PQ in 1080i is also superb, a slight loss in clarity and blur in fast moving sequences that is non-existent in 1080p. Standard def programing also looks great as well.
As far as audio, I have it setup through surround sound, so I cannot comment.
I have yet to connect an ethernet cable to use those features as well.
**UPDATE** I have attached the ethernet cable and the "infolink" features do work as advertised. It is a nice feature, news stories, temperature/weather, stocks all positioned in the corners of the screen. Will i ever use it, probably not. But, it works as advertised. I wish it was a way to update firmware for the TV rather than for these features.
The USB media port is another excellent feature. It allows you to play movies, music and pictures directly from the side of the TV with a USB flash drive or external hard drive. It will play almost any codec you throw at it, supposedly even x264(HD), have not been able to test this.
The remote is nicely designed and easy to use. Samsung eliminated the dreaded "click-wheel' on this years new models.
Delivery: Pilot was my shipping service, and I cannot say anything bad about the service. The delivered early and made the necessary phone calls to arrange delivery. The box was in great shape, as well as the TV inside.
