Samsung B650 buying advice


Standard Member
I'm looking at getting a B650 panel (probably the 55 inch version) in the next couple of weeks and this forum looks to be a great resource for some advice. I was also wondering about getting a Humax FreeSat HD box as there's a sky dish on my house doing nothing so ....

Has anyone used a Humax FreesatHD with the B650 and does it look ok ? Is there anything better out there if not ?

Around the start of the thread people were saying there are blurring issues - are these still around or was it a one off set of panels / firmware ?

Not related to this particular TV but I'm going to sit about 3 metres away from it - will it look nice and immersive or will it just be too big

.. and finally Crampton and Moore do the set for £1519 here in the UK, does anyone think I could get a better set for all-round viewing for that kind of money ?

Well, I ended up buying the Humax FreeSat HD and first impressions look good. I haven't bought the 55" TV yet but I went for another look down at Crampton and Moore and pretty much decided that I will get one as soon as the shop has stock.

I had a look at the LE52A856 which is in at C & M and I think that's dropped in price as it's now £1299 but after trawling through the forums I didn't see quite as many people raving about the performance as about the B650. I could be wrong though - does anyone have anything to offer who has either panel ? Saving £220 would be quite nice if it's worth it.:)
