I assume it will very similar.
I have one of the A630 sets in my entertainment center, and have "lived" with it for a couple of days now.
FYI - CC dropped their prices on these models this past sunday, although theyre still not showing stock of the 52".
Perp. to the tv on the left wall, I have a large window and also a glass door to the patio. I also have a lamp (which is normally ON during the evening hours) directly in front of the tv.
I tried the 650... and found the reflection ( i am going to try and stay away from using the g word) was too much for me with the lamp. The window and blinds had very visible reflections when i was at such an acute angle as to see them, but i could not see any direct effect from the windows on the tv.
The 630 has much less reflection of the lamp (its very diffused, but still is there...but not as noticeable.)
One thing that struck me is that the windows and blinds were still visible (but again less so). But again, i want to say, that I had to be at such an acute angle that i wouldnt normally be sitting at to see this at all. Like someone said at some time on this forum, if you are going to look for it, you will find it...
In store, the 630 was to my eyes, better than the 550 and the 530, and appeared to be similar to the 650.
In my home, i have not been able to see a noticeable difference in PQ between the two, when watching SD and QAM HD cable channels (with no cable box). I did find that i had to turn the AMP off to watch SD channels on both the 650 and the 630
