With its top-notch image quality and its ability to handle fast-action motion, the Samsung LN40B650 is our favorite all-around HDTV.
This 40-inch LCD set produced the best image quality of any TV we've recently evaluated, delivering crisp, sharp images with good color in our tests. It comes with Internet access to Flickr, Yahoo Widgets, YouTube, and a variety of games--all with an easy-to-use interface.
It has some flaws: The picture-in-picture feature is less than satisfactory, and the set didn't do a great job upconverting 480p DVDs to 1080p. But both limitations are easy to overlook given the LN40B650's reasonable price tag and its outstanding performance in every other respect.
