Like its smaller sibling, the 50″ PN50A650, the larger 58″ PN58A650 has a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. One million to one. That must really be some picture. The external design is identical (except for the size) with the Touch of Color design applied.

Samsung is missing a beat here. On the cover page for the PN58A650, it states that the dynamic contrast ratio is just 100,000. While in the full specifications page the dynamic contrast ratio jumps to 1,000,000:1. I’m guessing it’s the higher one, but you can’t be absolutely sure when Samsung isn’t.
