If you often watch movies and play video games, the Samsung Q60A offers better picture quality and is equipped for 4k content, making it a good fit despite costing more. It also performs better in both dark and well-lit rooms. However, if cost is a significant concern and your content is mainly in 1080p, such as regular cable TV, the N5300 is sufficient at a lower price, but won't look as good with darker scenes or bright areas. Neither TV is great for wide seating arrangements due to their poor viewing angles. Give Feedback

CNET

Geoffrey Morrison | June 2021
"The least expensive QLED is a solid choice for Samsung fans. Right out of the gate my eye was drawn to the Samsung. It is bright. The quantum dots let the Q60A produce far deeper, richer colors than the Vizio and TCL"
