If you want a tv for watching HD football and movies then this should be ok, if on the other hand you want a tv for playing games on, then I would avoid this one. The picture is too soft, doesn't matter how much tinkering you do with the tv. The 100 Hrz mode in "clear mode" is the best one when watching tv but does nothing when you are playing a game. In fact turning on any 100Hrz mode (CLEAR, STANDARD, SMOOTH or CUSTOM) when playing a game just ruins the picture. The sound modes are good and crisp.
I have given this tv 3 stars for HD programs only. I had a 19 inch Samsung LCD tv before this one and the picture when playing games were much crisper and sharper. Also the "Game mode" on the B650 makes the picture more grainy. I know Samsung can do good gaming tvs, but they have messed up with this one. Maybe the DNIE was a better system.
