You might have explained that this TV offers internet TV, so making it relevant to the IPTV forum:

Hi, oh yeah, I did not mention the Samsung LCD LE40C650 has Internet@TV, you connect it to your router/modem via Ethernet or Wireless.

I have exactly this tv and I chose it in Nov 2010 (a) to avoid a plasma which system gives blurry pix and (b) because it accepts the standard memorystick which you plug into the tv's USB2 socket.

I keep tv films on an external high-capacity hard drive, am gradually transferring my VHS library to the pc hard-drive and then use the software editor that came with the pc's graphics card, and this means that provided I use a memory stick at least 8GB in size I can get most tv films on to it (90 minutes of running time is about 5 GB) and of course I can use the memorystick for a still-photograph slide show.

I no longer need the time, trouble or expense of burning my copied VHS to DVD, nor to devise a storage facility for umpteen DVD discs. The external hd does all that and with a quickly-searchable catalogue also...

It is my belief that the advent of tv with usb memorystick capability means the death of Blue Ray and other DVD systems. Memorystick prices are coming down and memory size going up. I suggest it won't be long before such solid-state re-writable memory will even oust the optical hard-drive? Littleseen

It's nice enough, yeah. It isn't anything special though. Not really.

This Back-Lit LED 3D has t'net - And has dropped £100.00 within the past week.

3D LED tellies are lovely.

Don't know if they will be worth it, but they will be the next big thing. Too early, and will improve & get cheaper.

Hi Guest_Again, I would not waste my money on 3D TV for what I have seen on both Samsung and Sony TVs.

This Samsung 40" LCD LE40C650 TV for me the back-lit CCFL LCD gives a much more natural skin colour than the harsh brightness of the LED screen.

No, teh Samsung LED is excellent - have you seen them running in normal mode rather than shop/display mode?

I have a Samsung 8000 series - whilst I agree the 3D is not worth it, the quality, colour and tones and great. It also has the 2 USB ports - one for a hard drive and full PVR capability and the second for a memory stick.

Hi MHC, I did study the expensive 40 LED LCD Samsung 8000 series and 7000 series. I thought the picture quality no better than the CCFL LCD LE40C650 6000 series, which is, less than half the price; it also has two USB ports and USB Movie.

Specifications http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2010/09/16/...

I read the black levels this Samsung LE40C650 LCD 6000 series produces, is considered only beaten by the £3000 Pioneer plasma screens as seen in the Apple Stores.

The PVR capability (saves buying and installing a separate box) was one reason for the 7000 or 8000 rather than the 6000 and then the aesthetics and which would look best in the room - that 8000 design was the preference and in the end it came with a free BlueRay player and was not significantly more expensive than the 7000.

Sounds good to me, I had to buy my Sony BDP S370 DVD Blu-ray player £119. frown

We have freeview and have no HD here yet, although the picture produced most of the times is like HD. I am going for Freesat with Humax FOXSATHDR500 box this summer and switch between the two. smile
