Also known as the LE40B651
Wrongly posted for £699 few days back. Elsewhere this tv is about £800
Its brand spanking new, it's got the new internet widgets, it looks fantastic...so obviously Samsung are out of stock!. We've got a good chunk on back order and are hassling the 2 Petes at Samsung to get them in, watch this space.
Welcome to the next generation of flat TV. With its built-in Internet widget platform, the Samsung LE40B650 combines web with TV like never before. The system, developed by Yahoo, offers Internet access to news, weather, YouTube and Flickr, with more widgets coming soon. Connecting up couldn't be easier. Simply connect your wired or wireless system via the Ethernet system and you have Internet access. Once connected to your network you can also listen to music from your PC or even stream standard-definition video from it. Combine this with the twin USB ports for accessing information from other digital sources such as mobile phones or cameras and it quickly becomes apparent that here is a TV that's designed to work with the digital age and not apart from it.
Yet Samsung haven't stopped there. A huge investment in new technology has meant a better picture quality than ever before. Blacks are deeper and images are sharper; whatever the definition of the input signal, this new widget TV will get the best from it.
As ever with TVs, the audio can't live up to the picture without a separate home cinema system, but the "Invisible" speaker system does offer an open, clear sound with plenty of settings to make it sound acceptable in your room.
New technology has also reduced the power consumption on this set to a point where it's actually more efficient than a portable model of just a few years ago - so now you can have big screen entertainment with small power bills!
For a 40" widget TV that embraces the web, the Samsung LE40B650 looks set to start a TV revolution.
