Everyone always wants to buy the best TV monitors for gaming (like the Sony X900H 85 Inch TV: 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV), but sometimes your budget gets in the way. A cheaper alternative is the Skyworth E20300 Quad Core Android TV! Smart TVs can easily run up into the thousands, but this wi fi enabled smart TV offers a similar experience with a smaller price tag.

Why We Like It – Skyworth E20300

The Skyworth E20300 provides smart features on a big screen for a small price. Running on an Android operating system that has Google Assistant built in, the E20300 combines the processing power of the A53 Quad Core chip with a 40” 1080p display to produce an excellent viewing experience for folks on a budget.

Pros
  • HD 1080p Picture Quality
  • Voice Control Smart TV (Feature Powered By Google Assistant)
  • Modern Thin Frame Design With An HD LED Infinity Screen
Cons
  • Low Refresh Rate
  • Only Has 2 HDMI Ports

Performance

This Skyworth premium LED A53 Quad Core smart TV offers all the features you are used to on a more expensive device. It runs on the Android operating system, which means it can be used with multiple streaming apps found on the Google Play store. This allows you to Chromecast directly to the TV from your phone, & also lets you use Google Assistant for voice control. The monitor uses the A53 Quad Core processor to speed up loading times & provide a smooth viewing experience.

Viewing Angle

You can expect the usual 178-degree viewing angle from the E20300. This TV has an infinity screen, so the side/top bezels (which are 1mm thick) won’t interfere with your viewing experience. The model doesn’t have any advanced features like local dimming (as found on the Sony X950H) or anti-glare though, so you will have to figure out the best location to put this TV for the best possible view. Still, between the stand & the option to wall-mount the TV, you should be able to easily find a suitable spot for it if you absolutely can’t stand glare.

Durability

Like most TVs, the E20300 is not impact-resistant, so you will want to make sure the device is secure before you use it. Make sure you received all of the screws for the legs, as some people reported them missing. Even then, we recommend wall-mounting this TV instead, because the two legs it uses for a stand are very flimsy & may eventually fail. To wall-mount this TV you will need a VESA 200 x 100mm mount, but you shouldn’t have too much trouble mounting the TV, because it is fairly lightweight at 21.2 lbs.

Ports & Expandability

You won’t find as many ports on this TV as more expensive models like the Samsung Q80R TV, but that is fairly common within this price range. The E20300 has two HDMI ports, a coaxial plug, an ethernet plug, and a USB port that can be used to play music (or videos) off of your flash drive. It also has an optical audio out port, but many people seem happy with the internal speakers. You can also use Bluetooth to connect your headphones or favorite external speakers.

Value

This TV was created to provide a satisfactory smart TV experience at a competitive price. We think it succeeded. It’s not the cheapest TV around, but it offers good performance and specs for the price, scoring 4.1 out of 5-stars based on 614 ratings. When you order through Amazon both shipping & returns are free, which is always good to have. There is no specific warranty mentioned, but there are two protection plans available ($24.99 for 3 years, $31.99 for 4 years).

Skyworth E20300 Wrap Up

The Skyworth E20300 is a quality smart TV offered at a fair price. We think the price could have been a bit more competitive (also another HDMI port would have been nice), but for $250 this TV more than delivers its value. The low refresh rate may be a turn-off for some, but unless you are playing high-speed FPS games then this TV should meet your needs.
