Summary: Great buy for quality of picture. Has built in adjustment feature that adjusts lighting for sporting events. Only notice it in Hockey games, put clarity is phenomenal. No problem following puck. Not a lot of features but picture can't be beat. Very happy with TV.
Summary: This TV is a very good value and has all the amazing qualities you would expect from a plasma television. The only thing that holds this TV back is the sound quality. It is pretty terrible so I would suggest having a soundbar or other alternative sound system in place of this TV's speakers
Summary: Nice TV for the money but access to the rear of the TV is limited and inconvenient when mounted on a wall. Really a two person project due to it's size. And this will become important when your TV starts turning itself on and off at will. And it will. I see a fix for it listed on the Samsung site but have yet to get to it due to I'll need help taking this big boy down again. Also, plan on getting a sound bar if you plan on watching movies.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Realistic color
Cons: Did not meet expectations, limited access to the rear of tv, Poor sound
Summary: After about a week of using it the video/audio goes in and out of sync. I go through all the steps as suggested in forums and get it corrected and then it slips out again. Some suggest it is a certain network flaw of which I won't mention. Some suggest certain cable stations are the culprit. Some say after pausing it can go out of sync. Very annoying. But a beautiful picture.
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Durable, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic color
Cons: Audio out of sync, Did not meet expectations
Summary: Cannot beat this tv for the price. The only issue that we found from it so far is in a bright sunny room the glare is awful. However this is fairly standard in a plasma tv I believe so we just moved it to a wall where the sun doesn't glare off the tv.
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Inexpensive, Realistic color
Summary: This is the 4th Samsung Plasma tv we owned. The first 50 inch plasma lasted almost 4 yrs. and the second 51 inch Samsung plasma lasted slightly less than 2 yrs. Then we purchased a 43 inch Samsung plasma recently which is fine so far and a month later we purchased this 60 inch tv. The reason we purchase Samsung tv's is because the picture quality is beautiful.
Summary: We were looking for a basic TV with a great picture and sound. With the Samsung 60" Plasma 5300, we found just what we were looking for. The picture is bright, crisp, and easy to view from any setting or angle. We love the 3 picture setting. For the price, it was an excellent choice.
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Lightweight, Realistic color
