The J6300 LED TV is Samsung's top-of-the-line 1080p TV in 2015. It has good picture quality, handles motion well and has a lot of features, but it isn't perfect. The colors change when viewed at wide angles.
The Samsung J6300 LED TV has really thin borders, and the TV blends into the room.
The stand is cheap. It is almost all made of plastic and the TV wobbles when you push it.
This TV is great for watching movies. The blacks are pretty deep, and there are hardly any uniformity issues. Overall, the picture quality is really good.
This TV scores a bit lower than our top-ranked TVs because it doesn’t have advanced features like HDR and the ability to display an extra-wide range of colors. Neither of those is available for 1080p TVs, so don’t worry about that. The J6300 really is great.
The contrast ratio is good, but not exceptional.
The color uniformity is far from perfect. You can see darker vertical bands and a bit of dirty screen effect across the screen.
The J6300 isn't ideal when watching at an angle because the colors desaturate.
Update 01/06/2017: We have changed the methodology of testing. Since this is an old TV which we don't have anymore, we extrapolated the results from 2016 TVs.
The black uniformity is really great - almost perfect. No clouding or flashlighting.
It doesn't reflect much. However, you can see a small rainbow around bright objects. The screen finish is semi-gloss, which is inferior to what Samsung uses on higher-end models.
It can get bright enough for most situations, so do not worry if you have a few windows.
This is a decent TV for watching sports. There’s a bit more patchiness to the picture than you see with the highest-end Samsung TVs, but not too much. Playing surfaces should look fine.
There’s also very little blur, so fast-moving objects onscreen will look fine.
This TV has a low amount of motion blur, which is great for sports or video games.
There is no judder when a movie is playing via a 24p source (like Blu-ray player). Over 60p or 60i though, it doesn't always succeed at removing the 3:2 pulldown. You can turn on the soap opera effect though to get rid of it.
The minimal amount of blur also means that gamers won’t need to worry about the picture looking bad.
Most gamers shouldn’t notice a delay between performing an action and seeing the result onscreen. If you’re not a professional gamer, or someone who is very sensitive to delay, this will be a good gaming TV for you.
Labeling the input as PC is the way to get the lowest input lag on the Samsung J6300. Game mode is a bit higher, at 50.1 ms.
Set the HDMI type to PC to benefit from chroma 4:4:4.
The Samsung J6300 has decent bass, and can get pretty loud. The sound is also pretty accurate, though louder volumes are less so.
There’s not much distortion at any volume, which is great for TV speakers.
Note: Sound Quality test for TVs reviewed before 2017 was performed at 75dB, 85dB, and Max SPL. Starting 2017, the target SPL levels have been changed to 70dB, 80dB, and Max dB SPL.
Decent low-end and loudness for a TV. The frequency response is decent, except that it suffers as the volume increases. There will be pumping present when the TV is under heavy load.
Good distortion levels all-around, even at higher volumes.
The Tizen smart platform has developed quite a bit over the year, and is now quite good.
The remote included with this TV is just a basic one. If you want Samsung's smart remote, you'll need to get the Samsung JU7100 instead.
Unfortunately, Samsung doesn't sell top-quality 1080p TVs anymore. The J6300 is a good mid-range TV, but it is not high-end. It has average input lag and motion blur, which isn't ideal for gaming. The screen uniformity is also sub-par. Picture quality-wise, this TV is about the same as last year's H6350.
