Excerpt: The penchant of consumers for medium sized LEDs with basic features has led manufacturers to generate a line of products that besides performing well on the display front provide aesthetic pleasure with their premium built and an optimized size. The 39 inch LN5300 proves to be one of the favorite choices of buyers when it comes to low end medium display TVs with exotic color detail.
Conclusion: While you could argue that the LN5300’s 39-inch display is a bit too big for its 60Hz britches, we still think it offers serious value for the money. The TV’s sharp image and vivid color output provide an enjoyable viewing experience for a seriously low price. The poor audio performance, and affinity for jitter gave us pause, and those looking for a broader feature set would do well to consider the previously mentioned Vizio E420i Smart TV.
Pros: Gorgeous color, Sharp, clear image, Good black levels, Attractive, minimalist design
