Aware me Samsung HL61A650 vs Mits WD-65638

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So my samsung took a hit and the insurance company is offering the WD-65638 as a replacement. Can anyone compare the picture quality of the sets? I cannot find a contrast ratio on the WD-65638 so I was wondering about black levels etc.

The insurance company is telling me these are still made although they are 2010 sets?

From the reviews on Cnet, I would not buy the WD-65638. See if they would reimburse you money instead of the replacement.

It would be better to pick a better tv and pay a little extra out of your pocket.

I read those reviews along with tigerdirect, amazon and best buy. Most of the negs are due to the bulb which I am already used to. The insurance company is really scumming me. Because Mits still makes a DLP they are using that cost as my full payout value which is around $1100. I can't touch a 61" for that. If they pay me out it is at a reduced value which isnt even close. To get that value I have to get a new TV.

Tell them you checked, and the 638 series are 2010 models. Tell them you want at least a 2011 model. You can get a 73" (WD-73640) for under $1200, and they can get it cheaper. DLPs are much nicer now and you'll notice the improvement, even if you end up with the 638 series.

Yeah I will do that. That cash out value is $700 so I almost would rather take that and bank it for now with everything coming out in the next few years. Fortunately I have a LCD in the other room that survived. Kind of torn on dealing with DLP again as well. W'ell see.
