Samsung UN50EH5300 50 Inch Smart TV Review

Updated on October 27, 2017

A Flat Screen For Everyone

The Samsung UN50EH5300 50" Flat Screen Smart TV is a great buy for the money. I want to take a few minutes to dig into the pros and cons so that you can ultimately decide if this LED TV is the right one for you. For me? I love it, but there are a couple things you should be aware of before you decide to purchase.

A Broad Set of Features for a Value Priced Smart TV

This LED TV boasts a broad range of attractive features, that I personally find incredibly useful. You'll be able to enjoy Samsung's award winning Smart TV functions with Smart Content capabilities. You'll also enjoy usable apps built for the television including Netflix, HuluPlus, Amazon Video, Facebook and more. These are all run through the TV's built in WiFi which is surprisingly easy to set up and seems to other a strong connection even on a low bandwith connection. It also includes some custom apps for sharing photos, tracking fitness goals and games for kids. I can' say much about these features as that's not really what I used my TV for. Need to jump on the web? No problem. This flat screen TV offers a web browser as well. Other than that the built in WiFi gives you the ability to keep your television and content up to date.

A Word on Design Style

What people often downplay about the Samsung UN50EH300 is its look and feel. When considering this 50" HDTV, it’s important to consider what you're paying for it. Although some people tend to mention that the plastic seems a little cheap, you need to also remember that you're getting a lot for the money. What do you care more about? The bezel being plastic or what the picture looks like? Personally, this is something I had no problem over-looking, based on the other qualities offered by the TV.

By the way, despite being a cheaper plastic material, the design itself is pleasing. You'll find that the bezel isn't very thick, allowing you to focus on what's important: the viewing experience (which by the way, is very good).

How's the Picture Quality?

You'll find that this flat screen TV offers a pretty good picture quality. The colors are vibrant and clear. You'll enjoy good deep blacks as well as bright whites. The one thing I'll point out is that this television isn't the best choice if you have a large group of people watching it. Like other LED TVs you lose a bit of the viewing experience when sitting at angle from the screen instead of directly in front of it. LED TVs though also use much less energy than either LCD or Plasma and the effect really is quite minimal.

My Final Verdict Is...

The Samsung UN50EH5300 Flat Screen HDTV is a great value for money product. Although there are other LED TVs out there to choose from that offer a higher quality, there are only a handful at this price point that can even compete with what the Samsung UN50EH5300 has to offer. If your budget is between $500 and $650, this flat screen TV should definitely be a top choice to consider. I highly recommend the 50-inch Samsung UN50EH5300 LED TV

HDMI cables are now a must especially if you plan on hooking up your TV to a Blu-ray Player or game system. Not all HDMI Cables are the same! These support 3-D Playback and Return Audio. What this means is audio from your TV will automatically be outputted to your home theater.
