Simply not worth the price premium.
I was comparing the Sammy c630 vs. the c650 myself today at Sears. They had them up side-by-side with a Sony ex500 underneath, all in the 46/47 inch sizes. The 650's ucp panel does give it deeper blacks and a higher contrast ratio BUT at the expense of glare and reflections in a lit room. It's a personal decision of pick your poison. I myself could not live with the ucp panel in the 650 but will admit it would look better than the 630 in a dark room. Both sets looked nice. The c630 had slightly deeper blacks than the Sony ex500, which has a similar semi-matte screen as the Sammy. Just be warned that all panels were in "store mode" settings so accurate comparisons are hard to make.
I have been looking a bit more and I have not been able to confirm that the C630 does not
have the ultra clear panel. Can anyone confirm this?
The prices are so good right now through Amazon, it would be unfortunate to wait until I can see a 650 then have the prices go up.
The C630/650 panels, looking at what the B650/640/630's cost last year, seem to be a real good value imo.
If people come to a forum such as this looking for information...specs, reviews, why is it so taboo to include issues of pricing, especially when the prices seem inelastic on these new panels? Honest question.
