Hello All, I am looking to buy Samsung 46" LCD. But couldn't decide between LN46C650 vs LN46C630. The price difference is around 170 bucks. But the extra features I get in 650 are web apps. Are there any other features that I get in 650 so that 170 bucks are well spent. Thanks in advance for all help.

If you can block the light in the room a Samsung plasma would be much better for your viewing needs and cheaper to boot.

The C630 doesn't have the ultra clear panel which makes the blacks a little better as well as the color. But on the downside, the UCP is very reflective. So if your room has lots of windows you may prefer the C630 with the more matte screen.

I agree with both these suggestions, but I would consider going with at least a 50" screen size from that distance so you can actually SEE the full resolution at 10' away. With a 46" you will not be able to fully resolve the 1080p resolution from 10' away.

I recently bought a 40" LN40C650, very awesome and powerful TV. Theres basically not much of a difference between the two, the 650 series has deeper blacks and brighter whites, that's all. I've been looking into this for quite sometime.

i bought it at Frys. Other good option is to buy at Tigerdirect. with Bing cash back, you can not beat the price anywhere.

Let's see, deeper blacks and brighter whites, the most important things when looking for a new display so the statement "that's all" makes no sense at all.
