I just purchased my dream HDTV, a Samsung LN52A650A1F. What exactly is "a touch of color"? I do see a faint reddish edging around the frame. It looks like there is electronics in there. Is that reddish edging suppose to faintly glow? Actually in a darker room your cant see the coloring the frame just looks black, so I wonder what is so great about this "Touch or Color" unless it is suppose to illuminate.
Other than that....WOW..what a picture!

Congrats on the tv.

I also just purchased this same tv and it is fantastic.

The toc is just the slight red color around the bezel. I cannot see it in the dark either.

I'm still hooking up all my other toys to the tv. It's like xmas in September.

Have fun with your new baby!

This isn't really an HD DVR issue, I'm moving the thread.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

Stewart, sorry about that. I was trying to start a new thread and wasnt quite sure how to be "on topic" The closest topic I found was HDTV and that is the name of this thread. HDTV Forum...not HD-DVR as you imply.
Wideglide..yepper I it is Christmas here and loving watching football and all. I was on my 32" Olevia before... I even did the CE friday (0x279) night and set it up on 1080P and downloaded The Bank Job and it works perfectly. I know some Sony and other mfgs sets are having issues with "D" on 1080P. Not me...

Yep, have a 46a750 and 40a650. Love them both. Everybody that sees them (which really means everybody that doesn't have this class of LCD - which beats plasma hands down) raves about the picture!

Just make sure you watch them in a dark room. One of the knocks on toc's, is that the red bezel actually gives the picture a red push visually. It's just the way the eye works. It's also why most manufacturers just make them black - more accurate colors that way. If you're watching in a dark room it shouldn't matter.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

My 25 sammy monitor is touch of color. I like it, but side to side against a piano black finish is different, but not necessarily better.

Seems to be a popular choice, we got the 63" a month ago now! Truly beautiful picture. And the 4 HDMIs are already occupied!

If you can afford it, be sure to get it ISF calibrated. I just had my 2 Sony HD's done and the difference is startling.

(I used Lion AV)
