The Samsung Plasma F5300 is a good budget plasma TV. The picture quality in a dark room is excellent. However, it isn't good for viewing in a bright living room. It doesn't get very bright and the screen reflects a lot of light.
The Samsung F5300 is a good choice for a dimly lit room. Its good contrast produces deep blacks.
When you turn the lights on, the screen becomes gray. It reflects a lot of light and it is hard to distinguish dark details in the picture. You definitely do not want this TV in a bright room.
It performs slightly better when displaying a bright scene, but this is still a problem area for it.
The F5300 has very little phosphor trailing and it also supports 24p without judder, which is good.
The picture quality of the Samsung F5300 Plasma TV is excellent in a dark room. Do not turn on the lights, though, because the picture will get washed out by the amount of reflections.
