If you are on a budget, the Vizio D-Series '22 offers a similar screen size for less money and better performance for cartoons and animations which can be appealing for family viewing. However, if you need broader viewing angles for group watching in a well-lit room, the Samsung N5300 would be a better choice despite the higher cost. The Vizio has slightly better fair quality for sports and general TV watching, but neither TV excels in bright room conditions. Gamers might find both TVs limiting due to their poor gaming performance. For using as a monitor, they both have low performance, but provide support for common HDR formats if that's important for your media consumption. Neither TV has particularly good sound quality, so an external speaker system could enhance your audio experience. Give Feedback

About Samsung

Samsung, a South Korean electronics manufacturer, holds the title of being the largest global TV vendor in terms of units sold. They offer a diverse lineup of TV products that cater to various budget ranges. A notable achievement in recent years is the development of Quantum Dots, a technology that enhances color reproduction, resulting in richer and more vibrant hues. Samsung TVs are well-regarded for their high manufacturing quality and user-friendly software, making them an excellent choice for consumers seeking an intuitive viewing experience.

About Vizio

Vizio is an American company. While they initially gained recognition for offering budget-friendly TVs, they have successfully expanded their product lineup to include high-end options as well. They manufacture TVs primarily in Mexico, China, and Vietnam. Similar to many Korean TV brands, Vizio developed its own smart TV software called SmartCast. In the past, SmartCast was not the best smart TV software, but it has evolved so that it is now good for using your TV and connecting to streaming services.
