The LG LN5300 LED TV has 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.
0.75" (1.9 cm)
3.09" (7.9 cm)
With a dark scene, the black color looks slightly gray, but that isn't a big issue, given its low price.
The uniformity of the screen is average.
The LN5300 reflects slightly more light than average.
The reflection is less of an issue with brighter footage.
The LN5300 has a wide viewing angle with consistent colors. The contrast drops by half at 33°.
Motion blur is sometimes visible on the LN5300, but not enough to be a deal breaker for most people. Movie watchers will like the true 24p playback.
Gamers will appreciate this TV's low input lag.
