The Samsung N5300 is a budget-friendly LCD TV that was released in 2018 with a 40-inch screen size. It's a good choice for general use in bright rooms due to its strong viewing angle and good reflection handling, which means it can maintain a clear picture even when there's ambient light. However, it has poor picture quality overall, particularly in dark rooms, and it also fares poorly when used for gaming, watching sports, and movies. This TV is not ideal for content that requires high image quality or for use in dimly lit environments. It lacks features like local dimming and high dynamic range (HDR) support, which can enhance picture quality for more immersive viewing experiences. Additionally, the N5300's color accuracy out of the box and motion processing are rated as fair, which means some users may notice inaccuracies in color reproduction and motion blurs during fast-moving scenes. The sound quality is also fair, indicating a decent but unspectacular performance without great speakers. It has 2 HDMI ports and offers a good quality for use as a monitor, which makes it suitable for connecting computers or gaming consoles. If price is a major concern and you don't require the latest features or the best image quality, the Samsung N5300 could meet your needs for casual viewing in brighter environments. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Sports:
3.7
The Samsung N5300 has wide viewing angles, meaning the picture remains consistent from different seating positions, a plus for sports that are often viewed in groups; however, its motion handling is not optimal, with only fair motion processing and poor response time, which can lead to blurring during fast-paced games.
