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.
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.See our Mixed Usage recommendations
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.
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.
As with all Samsung TVs, the upscaling of lower-resolution content like DVDs is good. 'Digital Clean View' is effective at reducing the compression noise
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 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.
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.
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.
