Reviewed Aug 20, 2013 By Cedric Demers
This television has been discontinued.
It was replaced by the LG LB5800

The LG LN5300 LED TV has a picture quality similar to the LN5400. It has a good viewing angle but its blacks are not very good. It also has some slight motion blur. Its strongest point is its very low input lag.
