Samsung UN50EH5300F Smart LED LCD HDTV Review

A great budget TV if you want to save some money but not scrimp on features.

$699.99 at Amazon 50 in.


Samsung's EH5300 TVs are the next step up from their EH5000 series. When we reviewed the 40-inch EH5000 back in March, we found it to be a no-frills introduction to an excellent line of TVs. The 50-inch EH5000 retails for $1,099, whereas the 50-inch EH5300 costs one-hundred dollars more. The difference between the two? Samsung's Smart Hub.

Like the EH5000, the EH5300 is an excellent core performer, with almost no major drawbacks save for its narrow viewing angle. At an MSRP of $1199, you get a solid 50-inch TV with internet access and simple, intuitive menus. For the price, we think the EH5300 is a very good deal.
