I just picked up the LN46c670 from BB for a great deal. I originally bought the 630, but after seeing the 670 with the UCP screen, I returned the 630 the next day unopened and took home the 670.
Just set it up a couple of days ago and all I can say is WOW! Picture is fantastic. My son watched a bit of The Incredibles on DisneyXD though Comcast and the picture looked almost like 3D.
I was a little worried because I have the the CN03 panel, but I do not have any problems with any of the issues I've been reading about here. No flashlighting or clouding, no ghosting, just amazing. Coming from an 8 year old 46" Sony rear projection, the difference is night & day.
Maybe I got lucky with my panel, but no problems whatsoever so far.
I just got the 670 myself with the same panel and I am so so happy with the TV. I don't have any clouding, banding or anything. There is a tiny amount of backlight leak around the edges, but it really does not bother.
I ended up bypassing my receiver for all my inputs though which is a bit of a pain, but that is my AVR's fault not the TV. I think I need to get a new AVR w/ HDMI bypass on it. I have 4 HDMI's going into the TV and 2 opticals and 2 digital coaxes into the AVR. But now that I have done it the picture is amazing.
I was worried about the panel as well but after a ton of scrutinizing it I can't find an issue..at all.
I went from a couple of Samsung plasma's to this and I have to say not having to worry about burn in, break in or anything like that is a nice relief.
I have not had it calibrated or even used a calibration disc (I have one on the way though) and I think the picture looks great. Blu Rays are amazing and even SD looks nice with the scaling abilities of the TV. My only wish? They had a 55" version. I realize the 650 comes in that size, but I honestly am so happy with this panel I don't want to mess about.
