Things to look for while buying a television

1. Size of the television:

This is probably the most important factor which significantly drives the buying behaviour of customers who are looking to buy a new television. The sheer size of a television is capable of altering a customer’s decision. Many people have an emotional/psychological connect with the size of the television. A bigger size television is considered a sign of social status by many. And due to this many people choose to buy an over-sized television.

To illustrate the effect the size of television has on the viewing experience, let us look at an example. If you buy a large sized television (above 40 inches) then there is a certain distance at which you have to sit from the television to have a comfortable view. Otherwise the objects on the screen will look too large and the viewing experience will be poor.

So it is important to buy such a TV which is best suited to your room. Given below is a table which illustrates the minimum distance at which you should sit from the television in order to have a nice viewing experience.

2. It’s in the “Pixels”

When we are talking about the screen resolution, or in other words, the clarity of the television, then the number of pixels matter a lot. More the number of pixels, more is the graphical information captured and displayed to the viewer and consequently, more is the clarity of the television. In India, four types of screen resolutions in televisions are available. These are:

a) Standard Definition

b) HD Ready (1280 x 720 or 720p)

c) Full HD (1920 x 1080 or 1080p, available only in 32 Inches and above TV models)

d) Extra High Definition (3840 × 2160, 4K, UltraHD, available only in 42 Inches and above TV models)

As you go from Standard Definition to Extra High Definition, the number of pixels in the screen increase, which means that the display-clarity increases. But one should keep in mind that beyond a certain distance from the TV, all the various versions of HD televisions appear to be same (or there is little noticeable difference from a HD ready TV to a 4K variant). The difference between these variants starts becoming noticeable as one starts moving closer to the screen.

3. Refresh rate

The video playing on a television is actually a series of images which are displayed at a very high rate so that they appear to move and give our eyes a sensation of moving objects. So “refresh rate” determines how quickly the images are updated in one second (or are refreshed in one second) on the screen. If a television has a high refresh rate, then it means that the moving of the images on the screen will be fast and smooth. In simple words, the video quality will be enhanced. (Please note that refresh rate is different from frame rate).

So if you primarily intend to watch high-action, fast moving objects on your television (like racing, or high graphics games) then you should go for a television with a high refresh rate as the images would not get blurred. But if you want to watch regular stuff (like TV soaps, movies) then the standard refresh rate of 50 Hz would be sufficient for you.

Different manufacturers use different terminologies (in terms of mentioning the refresh rate) to promote their televisions. Some examples are LG Motion Clarity index, Samsung Clear Motion rate, Toshiba ClearScan, Sony Motion Flow and so on. In these patented technologies, the refresh rate that is mentioned, is sometimes bloated. So a manufacturer can label their television as having a refresh rate as high as 1000 Hz, but effectively the refresh rate is no more than 200 Hz.

Fake Refresh rateImage Source

It is important to have a knowledge of the aspect of “fake refresh rate” because some people get misguided by the high value of the refresh rate for a particular brand, which when normalised, is effectively lesser than the value that is mentioned in the specifications of the television.

4. Sound (RMS Output)

Another important aspect now-a-days is the sound quality of televisions. If you look at some models, you shall find that a RMS power rating is given to televisions. For example. a television with 5W + 5W RMS would mean that the power output of both the speakers is 5W individually. Higher RMS rating generally translates to louder volume. However, it does not mean that a higher RMS rated TV will be “better-sounding” more than a TV having a lower RMS rating.

5. IPS vs VA panel

You must have observed that when viewed from different angles, the colours in the LED TV change. That is because of the screen-panel.

There are two main types of panels available in market: IPS panels and VA panels.

IPS panels are found to be better in terms of viewing angle ie you can watch TV sitting at different angles with the TV whereas VA panels are not found to be that good in terms of viewing angle. It means that a TV with a VA panel does not give you much freedom in terms of the viewing angle. So if you have a bigger room, then IPS panel would offer a better angle. Also IPS panels are tougher than VA panels and are found to be more durable.

6. Picture Engine

In a bid to enhance the viewing experience of the customers, newer technologies are continuously being invented and implemented in televisions. Picture Engine is one of them. Certain brands advertise their “superb picture engine” which claims to better the existing viewing experience. A picture engine works good when a low-resolution video is being played on the television. With the advent of smart TVs, which can be connected to the internet, viewers can now watch videos online. So if you end up watching a low-resolution video on the internet through your television, then the picture engine ensures that the video does not get blurred or “pixelated” on the big screen.

“Contrast ratio” is a term which one might hear when looking at several models of TVs. Contrast ratio is a measure of the luminance of the TV screen. It is the ratio of the brightness of the brightest colour (ie white) to the darkness of the darkest colour (ie black) on the screen. It is an indicator of the vibrance (or brilliance) of the screen. So a high contrast ratio is usually preferred.

7. Additional features: Smart TV and 3D TV

3D television is a new innovation in the field of televisions. In addition to the features the are provided by a regular television, a 3D TV adds a third perception ie the depth perception to the viewing experience. So the images on the TV appear 3-dimensional. Newer variants have come up which don’t even require the viewer to wear glasses to experience the “depth-effect.”

Smart televisions are made to be able to connect to the internet. So you can browse the internet, watch online videos and so on your TV by connecting it to WiFi.

There is a device called Google Chromecast, which can be plugged in the HDMI port of your TV. What it does is it casts or enables your TV to display the content of your laptops, mobile phones right on to your television.

Buying a Television: The Electricity perspective

Being an electronic device, a TV is another addition to your total electricity consumption. So let us have a look at the various things in a television which affect the electricity consumption.

1. Size of the television: Let us categorize televisions (according to size) in three parts:

a) Small-sized television (22 inches or lesser): Televisions having a screen size of 22 inches or lower are available in two categories, CRT (the one with a bulging screen) and LED (which has become very popular now-a-days). If we compare the costs of these two types, then it is observed that CRTs are much more inexpensive than LED TVs. But from the power consumption perspective, LED TVs are much better as they consume approximately one-third of the power consumed by a CRT TV.

b) Medium-sized television (22 inches to 40 inches): In this category, customers have two choices: LED television or LCD television. Although both these types look similar, but the internal technology in both of these is quite different. LEDs are at least 30% more energy efficient as compared to LCDs. A typical 32-inch LCD would consume about 95-100 Watts whereas a same size LED would consume only about 55 watts (comparing both HD Ready models). Most of the LCDs are HD Ready models and most of the LEDs are Full HD models. But in terms of electricity consumption same size LED with Full HD consumes less than HD Ready LCD models.

c) Large-sized Televisions (size greater than 40 inches): There are two choices in this category as well: Plasma TV and LED TV. Plasma TVs consume 30-40% more electricity than LED TVs and for this size group, certain Plasma TVs consume as much as 600 Watts (for huge Plasma TVs). The best of LED TVs in this group consume about 70-80 Watts while similar sized Plasma TVs consume about 140 Watts. If we compare prices, again LED TVs are more expensive than Plasmas.

Typical Power Consumption numbers for various kinds of TVs are:

  • Microdisplay rear projector: 0.11 watt per square inch
  • LCD: 0.16 watt per square inch
  • CRT: 0.25 watt per square inch
  • Plasma: 0.30 watt per square inch

2. The number of Pixels: The electricity consumption of HD televisions (HD Ready, Full HD, Ultra HD) is higher than the regular televisions because more power is needed to capture more details on the screen.

3. Refresh rate: If you intend to watch high action stuff (fast moving objects like racing, games and so on) on your television, then a higher refresh rate is advisable. However, higher the refresh rate, more the electricity consumption.

4. Sound (RMS output): Televisions have a rating in terms of RMS output like 10W or 15W. This means that the total power output (in terms of sound) will be 10 W or 15 respectively. Higher the RMS output, more will be the electricity consumption.

One more thing which one should keep in mind is that, after making the purchase, the electricity consumption hugely depends the usage habits and patterns. For example, watching TV at high brightness consumes more electricity. For more information on how to optimise the electricity consumption of a TV, refer to “Impact of Brightness and Volume on Television / Computer / Audio System electricity consumption”.

 

Conclusion

We have seen that how different models and features affect the power consumption of a television. It is true that people do not pay much heed to the power consumption while making a purchase for a television, and sometimes end up buying a TV that consumes much more power without making a significant difference in the viewing experience.So you should always check your requirements first, and then accordingly buy a television. This will not only help in optimising the electricity consumption, but also help in selecting the best television suited to your needs.

Now I planned to buy a tv in found ur recent post on this which is very helpful for me. I have chosen 40 inch sony bravia 40W672E..(2017model) .. Is it a good choice ?

2

all human have their own thinking and choice and hobby for television. but my simple question is that which preference must for tv at present? 4k , smart + 3d or 4k + smart and 3d not necessary? i see all model sony kdl - 43w950d ,sony kdl - 50950d ( both model full hd smart and 3d) sony kd-43x8300d and latest 2017 model sony kd-43x8200e ( both model 4k and smart but not 3d ) and other difference in both model is sound output and 2017 model provide latest android 7.0 Nougat and also lg-49uh850t now i little beet confuse which prefrence is more important?

3

Dear Sir,
Thanks for you give my all question answer. you write in tv section that only 6.5 feet distance for full hd tv need than what distance need for 4k tv? and is distance very less that it will not hurt eye also?

4

Dear Sir,
at present there is no such telecast of 4k in india or may be in world and when real 4k telecast start by in future i dont know than is it useful to spend money at present in 4k television. sony and lg stop down 3d tv because of no 3d tv demand or any other reason same 4k loss future and may be stop down am i right?

3D was a bit cumbersome because one had to put on extra glasses for the same. It was not like normal viewing. People are trying to build technologies where 3D can be viewed without glasses. But till then 3D does not work great just because of the need of glasses. And that is why 3D TVs did not sell. 4K is about more resolution.

As far as channels are concerned, there are already 5 channels that are being telecasted on 4K in India: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_4K_channels_in_India ..... and 4K set top boxes have also started coming in India: http://www.tatasky.com/wps/portal/TataSky/set-top-boxes/tatasky4k

dear sir,

i bought tv in 2011 of lg company at that time lg lcd tv 32 inch weight is 9.5 kg and at that time they provide 13.5 kg weight in 42 in television. now at present lg provide 9.5 kg weight in 43 inch television. what i understand that due to competition not only lg but all tv company reduce rate average 25% to 30% so now concern is that durability of tv as per my thinking is minimum 5 to maximum 6 years? because in hardware parts some parts now not in copper but in plastic material and also some tv producer not provide metal frame body. this my thinking is going on right way or am i wrong? one of your video i saw that where you give details about air conditioner where you give advice that blue condenser and other details. i suggest you that please if possible give hardware details for you all user for their awareness. after study of all company television what i understand that now we are in situation that customer have no benefit from any multinational company and we are going on use and throw way policy of any type or any amount television we buy. this thinking is my also right way?

Hi Sudip,

Thickness (and weight) of laptops have been shrinking for years now (Apple macbook air is super slim and light). Thickness/weight of mobile phones has also been shrinking for years. But that does not mean that their durability is getting bad.

TV is an electronic appliance where there are more circuits inside. It is not like AC where there is heat exchanger coil that need to be copper. Or a ceiling fan that has a motor and its windings need to be copper. Or a voltage stabilizer which again has a small transformer whose winding need to be copper. TV is electronic!! It has circuits inside. I do not think decreasing weight has any impact on durability of the TVs!!!

Dear Sir,
what is meaning of refresh rate? and how its effect? and if refresh rate is high than also our electricity bill also high due to factor of refresh rate? and which company give real refresh rate after they give us written in their model?

9
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

To understand refresh rate you need to imagine a different thing. Suppose you are standing at one place and a friend of yours takes 3 picture of you as you are moving. Now you are seeing these photos on your computer and all three come in a sequence as you tap from one to another. You feel as if there is video of yours shot in those 3 photos.

Every video is a sequence of images moving one after another. The faster they move, the smoother is the video. This rate of movement is called refresh rate.

High refresh rate does not necessarily mean high electricity bill. They are moved by the picture engine using the softwares inside it.

Every company uses different standards to show refresh rate. Vu is the only brand that says 60Hz for 60Hz and 120Hz for 120Hz. But then that does not mean that one will not go for Sony just because their 800Hz is actually equal to 120Hz.

Dear Sir,
i have query regarding x reality pro of sony. yesterday i meet one sony dealer yesterday and he told me that x reality pro is processor. you give me earlier answer that if we want real and super result of 4k than it will better to choose size 49 to 55 inch. but sony dealer said that due to to x reality pro you will get same result also in 43 inch tv is it true?

11
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sudip,

X Reality Pro is picture engine (or you may call it processor). What it determines is the colors, brightness, it defines the difference between black and white (how dark is a black and how white is a white). For e.g if a person is wearing a white shirt and stands in a white background. You should be able to identify his body and the outline of the shirt, etc. That is the role of a picture engine. Also if there is a red, how vibrant is the red so that you feel that the picture is great. That is the role of a picture engine.

Now 4K is all about pixels. Imagine a picture being created by joining dots. Try to remember our childhood activity where we used to draw pictures by connecting dots. If the dots were too far away and you joined them to create a picture, the edges would not be smooth (especially if you joined them as straight lines between two points). But if there were lot of dots and quite close to each other. Then the image will be smooth and the borders will be neat. So the difference between 4K and Full HD is that there are more dots (or pixels) in 4K as compared to Full HD, so the borders would be sharper and neater.

So picture engine and resolution are two very different things and should not be treated as the same.

Now imagine each pixel as a square on the screen. And 1000s of pixel make up a screen. For simplicity let us assume that we divide the screen into 1,00,000 squares. The size of square will be bigger if the screen size is bigger. And size of square will be smaller if screen size is smaller. Because you are packing same number of squares in screens of different size.

Now if these squares start getting smaller and smaller (as they start doubling up), after a point you will not be able to figure out that the square has become smaller (visually your eyes will not be able to differentiate). Now that level will reach faster if the screen size is small because even when we packed 1,00,000 squares in the the smaller screen, they were small as compared to bigger screen.

Usually 43 inch is the starting range of 4K TVs. That is the size when human eyes can see some difference by packing in more pixels. You will never find a 40 inch UHD or 32 inch UHD just because human eyes will not be able to differentiate between FHD and UHD at that size. But at 43 inch there is minor difference. And the difference starts increasing as the size increases. So at 55 inch there will be a significant difference.

So first thing, please do not mix picture engine with resolution. Those are two very different things. Also the visual effect is a combination of sharpness of the picture (resolution) and the brightness of the colors and the difference between black and whites.

X Reality pro is fantastic picture engine (probably the best). And at 43 inch with 4K it can certainly give great results.

Hi Abhishek,

Can you pls. help to select TV with below features?
Looking for a HD TV which is 40-43”, with built in WiFi, Smart TV, Cast\Mirroring option, USB ports (to play multiple movie, image formats), 2/3 HDMI ports, Audit output (for headphone), preferably Android
Budget is around 40 K
I checked LG 43LH600T, but not sure about Web OS performance. Better than Android?

Thank you.

13
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Deven,

WebOS currently is quite good as it has a better UI and interactivity, but then Android will have app store which will have more apps than what LG can offer. From what I see, going forward Android will be the leader in OS space because it is already a leader in mobile.

Among the premium brands LG, Panasonic and Samsung all have their own OS. Sony is the only one that has introduced Android. But then it will go much beyond your budget Sony KDL-43W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBvESF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW!!d!NNNN ) would cost above 60K.

Other brands that you can look at are Micromax and Onida. They have cheaper Android TVs in this budget. Micromax 42C0050uhd (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rToA8a ) can fit in your budget and has everything that you are looking for (and UHD TV). Or Onida LEO40FIAV1 (amazon link: http://amzn.to/2rTnppo ) would be an android tv.

14

Thank you very much.
Would like to if VU offers any options? Durability, service wise how do you rate brands like MIcromax, VU ?

15
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

VU has 43S6535 which has Android, but I could not find it anywhere and even on Vu website it is out of stock. Otherwise Vu uses Opera OS. Picture quality is always better in premium brands as their softwares and picture engine are far better. Durability of TVs in general is quite difficult to predict as small voltage surges, impact on screen, etc can damage the screen even of the best of the TVs. Service varies from place to place and again it is difficult to predict. Personally I had difficult experience with a Micromax phone. But then my experience and someone else's experience can be very different.

16

I am planning to buy the smart tv and confused between LG43LH600T Vs LG43UH650T which is Ultra 4K Tv vs LED TV. Please suggest also is LG good brand to consider or is Sony only better. Appreciate your quick reply.

17
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Between Sony and LG I would prefer Sony if I have the budget because Sony is expensive. Between the two models you selected, 43UH650T which is UHD TV would be better.

18

If Sony which is better 43 inch model I was seeing from this whole post about 800D and 950D, which is better to consider.

19
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

950D is a fantastic model if it fits in your budget. I would say it would be the best 43 inch model you can get.

20

Hi Abhishek,
Your website is very handy and informative in selecting proper electrical and electronic appliances. I am planning to buy a HDTV. Previously i bought a Panasonic plasma TV and was very happy with the picture quality (particularly SD content and Black and white films and songs). Now Plasma TV's got discontinued. My budget is around 50K. If any TV has impressive picture quality i can stretch to 70K max. My preferred TV size is 50 inch or 55 inch (if any tv falls within this budget). From picture quality perspective which will be better, A full HD TV with local dimming or a 4K tv with HDR within this budget? Can u suggest some TV's. It would be a great help if you help me decide. Thanks in advance.

21
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Vinoth,

Difficult to get a 50-55 inch model in premium brands in that budget, I could only find one model from Panasonic:

Panasonic TH-55C300DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eeSP8n ) .... however the refresh rate of this model is normal. If you do not watch fast action sports or movies, then this may fit your requirements.

In case you are fine with non premium brands, then you can look at these:

Philips 55PFL5059/V7 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eznQz0 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e75aL!NNNN ) .... this has fast refresh rate

There is a 50 inch version of the same as well Philips 50PFL5059/V7

Vu LTDN55XT780XWAU3D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezr2e1 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEmu6!NNNN ) is a UHD TV. Again a good one.

Premium brands like Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic have better picture engines that show better color and contrasts. 4K just has more information, so your edges of the objects on screen would be smoother. If you want better colors and contrast then I would say go for Panasonic model mentioned above. If you watch fast moving action movies and sports then going for faster refresh rate is better so Philips would be good in that case.

22

I am looking LED tv in 55 inch. Some one suggest me LE ECO, tv can we buy this my budget is 80 to 90k for this. Can you pls suggest me. Which modal can we buy. Which can give best picture quality with other feature.

23
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ashish,

LeEco is a decent brand and you can certainly go for it. They would give really good specs for quite cheap. Here are a few models which I found really good:

Panasonic TH-55CX400DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qATCnQ ) .... this is a UHD (4K) model from Panasonic which is a premium brand. Amazon mentions it as Full HD but CX400DX is a UHD series.

Vu TL55C1CUS (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qF19jH ) ..... this is also a UHD. It also has fast refresh rate and would be really good choice.

LG 55LF6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eOJFPf ) .... a premium brand TV with really good refresh rate. But this is Full HD.

Philips 55PUT7791/V7 ... a very good UHD TV with fast refresh rate.

In brands like LeEco, Vu and Philips you can get UHDs with fast refresh rate as well. In premium brands like LG and Samsung you can just get Full HD.

24

Hi Abhishek Jain,

Thanks for all the info you have provided. Can you suggest me some of the best 55" 4K tv's.
Thanks in advance...

25
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here are some:

Sony KD-55X9350D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qvO6mt , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/UqyDrTuuuN )
Samsung 55KS9000 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2pOfUmO )
LG 55UF950T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qvLHIw )
Panasonic TH-55DX650D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qV1TUP , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/I8vD5!NNNN )

I have picked the best from each brand. Sony and Samsung would be fantastic.

26

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for the info being provided. I'm not looking for 3-D Tv, can you suggest other sony model.

Thanks in advance!!!!

27
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony KD-55X8500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2pSmlVZ , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kJ33GTuuuN ) does not have 3D TV.

28

Dear Mr Abhishek Jain,

I'd like to buy 39"-43" Full HD LED TV and am looking at the following models at Rs 25k to 35k budget.

Vu 40D6575
Panasonic TH-43D350DX
Panasonic TH-40D200DX
Samsung 40J5100
Onida 42FIE (Smart TV)
Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Smart TV)

My first choice was to buy an FHD TV and add Google Chromecast 2 to it later for making it a smart TV. But I now see a couple of Smart TV models from Onida and Panasonic are available at prices close to other FHD TVs and therefore I have included two Smart TV models also for your review please.

Please suggest me a best model (considering the aspects of picture quality, refresh rate, sound clarity and more connectivity options to interface to externals devices) among the above and/or if you have any other brand & model to recommend in 39"-43" FHD LED TV.

Is the panel of Vu and Onida models IPS or ? (Vu spec states it is A+ grade panel). Will the IPS panel of Panasonic provide better picture quality?

With a streaming device like Chromecast 2 plugged-in, will the Full HD LED TV operate like a Smart TV in all aspects (without customized OS on the TV)? Or it is better I buy a Smart TV itself now?

Thank you in advance for your review and suggestions.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Abhijit,

In digital TVs, every picture is a piece of information. And this piece of information has to be handled using sophisticated software. Full HD contains more information about the picture as compared to HD Ready and thus images look clearer and the borders look finer. On top of that the picture engine also works on the color and contrast of the picture. So a better picture engine can show more vibrant colors and better difference between the shades of black or white. IPS panel does not drive picture quality. It is the hardware. True picture quality is an outcome of how well the hardware and software will work.

In general picture quality is better in premium brands because they use better picture engines. Like Sony uses XReality Pro, or Triluminous display. Samsung has come out with Quantum Dots, etc. So you will find that the colors are more vibrant and the contrast is better in premium brands. But the better the picture quality, the TVs also become expensive.

Also refresh rate drives how fast the frames change and if it is slow, the really fast moving scenes can appear a bit blurry on a TV with low refresh rate. But again the difference can be observed only when you see two TVs together (one with fast refresh rate and one with low). Usually it does not look too bad in a TV with low refresh rate. And specially if you are watching regular content, then it may not matter at all.

Now for the TVs in the size range and your budget, you can look at these:

I think Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2dUuwY0 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eMIfz!NNNN ) would be the best choice in terms of picture quality as it is a SMART TV as well. You may not need cromecast for this.

Philips 40PFL5059/V7 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eOAtua ) could be another interesting option, although it is not a SMART TV.

But I think that the Panasonic model would be the best option for you.

As for Chromecast, the only drawback of chromecast is that it is dependent on a smart phone. You need to have another device like a Smart Phone or a Laptop to operate it. But a SMART TV with in built OS does not need to depend on that.

30

Thank you Mr Abhishek for your detailed response and suggestion. Any idea, does Panasonic Smart TV come with Android OS or their own OS? I will also try to find this out. Regards

31
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Panasonic uses Firefox OS. It does not use Android.

32

Also would like to add here mxq pro android box also doesnt need mobile to run ...same as smart tv.. please do check that...

33

Thanks Mr Manish for your response, it was indeed very helpful. Regards

34
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Thanks for the information :).

35

Hi there,
Vu 40D6575,Samsung 40J5100,Onida 42FIE (Smart TV) are not good while comparing quality n feature n cost wise

Panasonic TH-40D200DX 30k @amazon
+ve 2016 model, picture quality n ips,
-ve costly,40inch, 16w audio,less connectivity option over 43d350dx

Panasonic TH-43D350DX @26.5k flipkart
value for money, no arc,100hz(real 60hz), ips panel, 20w audio, bigger fullHD
-ve : 2015 model,
Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Smart TV) 30.5k @flipkart
BEst bet considering smart TV (it interface is good), refresh rate 400hz, arc support, downside 40inch only

Also smart TV interface of panasonic is good. can be managable, but if you are more into geek or want extreme performance then chromecast/ mxq pro 3-5k would be great. mxq pro has lost of great feature, can play high loaded games, update, more connectivity, quda processors...
So Personally I save 4k here n brought 43d350dx with bigger screen n will get mxq pro 2gb box for 4k...

But I would recommend
Panasonic TH-43D350DX
or Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Smart TV) either one..

P.S. I reaserch little bit because I was also buying tv.. Abhishek will provide mode valuable suggestion.

36

BTW forgot to mention that Panasonic TH-40DS500D doesnt ship to my place pune from flipkart. Amazon is costly 37k. So easy for me to make decision 43d350dx

37

Hi Abhishek - can you suggest me 55 inch tv in the budget of 1-1.2 lakhs. Thank you

38
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jai,

There are two models from LG that are UHD 55 inch TV with fast refresh rate: LG 55UF680T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qQLWPh ) and LG 55UF670T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qvE6aI ). The price looks like in your budget on Amazon but the sellers on Amazon are new and these models are not brand fulfilled. The price on Croma etc also looked in your budget. So you may try these.

If you want Full HD then you can look at these:

Sony KDL-55W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qgZRxX )
Samsung 55K6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rpETcE )
LG 55LF6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eOJFPf )

39

I am looking at 4k tv's / UHD are the above mentioned models all 4k ones ?

40
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

The first two from LG that I have mentioned are UHD TVs. The 3 at the bottom are FHD.

41

Hi abhishek,
I am looking for 40-43 Inch (preferably non-smart, will buy chromecast or android box tv for 3-4k)

My budget would be 30k , will prefer any brand but FULL HD...mostly going to watch SD channels only
Is micromax or vu or onida picture qulity is good or not???
Also panasonic??? TH-43D350DX 26500 at flipkart?? how is this ?? it has 100hz but will matter or in real its 60hz only.
I saw micromax fullhd/ultra hd 43 would cost 32k ??? which one better this or above panasonic..
micromax canvas-s 50inch(36k) 40inch(30k~).????

Thanks

42
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Manish,

Picture quality depends on picture engine of the TV. And picture engine is more of a software than hardware. Brands like Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic make their own proprietary picture engines which provide best quality. I do not think Micromax, VU, Onida will be able to match it. So if you want best picture quality then go for premium brands. Else for a regular use, Micromax, Vu, Onida will also work well.

So picture quality depends on two things: Hardware (it can be full hd, uhd, etc) and the Software (the picture engine). Brands can procure similar hardware, but the software part is the one where premium brands excel (although they excel in hardware as well). But the basic difference comes in the software part.

It looks like you want a TV to watch regular SD telecast. In that case faster refresh rate would also not matter much. In general faster refresh rate is needed when you watch fast action sports or movies.

Now Panasonic TH-43D350DX says 100Hz, but in reality that is just 60 Hz. So it does not have fast refresh rate.

Micromax model that you are talking about, if it is UHD, then it has better hardware. However, the difference between Full HD and UHD would not be much in 43 inch. If you can get 50 inch UHD, then it will certainly make a difference. But still Panasonic has better picture engine. So you will have to compare the UHD from Micromax and Panasonic TV to really see if there is a great difference or not. From colors and contrast perspective, Panasonic would be better. But UHD will have more details so the clarity and borders will look much finer on UHD.

If you want a TV with fast refresh rate then you can check Philips 40PFL5059/V7 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eOAtua ). This is also a good TV.

43

Here is some short list, or suggest me...(keen on value for money n reliable..)
Micromax 40A6300FHD 40inch full hd 21.5k
Onida 42FIE 42 fullhd smart 28k
VU 40D6575 40inch full hd 21k
micromax 43E9999UHD.43E7002UHD UltraHD Smart 33k
VU 50k160gp full hd 32k
panasonic TH-43d350DX full hd 28k

Here

44
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Either go for Panasonic Full HD or Micromax UHD. It you want better colors and contrast, go for Panasonic. For finer details in the objects, go for UHD. Difficult to say which one would look better.

45

Thanks for your valuable opinion..
will consider panasonic FHD or Micromax UHD...
What you say abt after sales service? its life??
Also I didnt able to find ARC supported or not??? in Panasonic th-43d350dx..check many other webpages??? How do I make sure abt arc (audio return channel)?

46
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Life of electronics depend a lot on how well the power supply is and how well it is handled. Power surges can destroy any TV. Similarly any impact on screen also damages the screen. So usually it is quite difficult to comment on life of a TV. If handled properly it should run well. After Sales Service is also location specific. However, based on my personal experience I think Panasonic should be better. But check with local people.

As for ARC support, the sellers on Amazon say that it does support ARC, check this link: http://amzn.to/2rqMiJl it contains reply of sellers on the model page on Amazon. The panasonic website does not say anything.

47

Hi,
So finally I made my decision for Panasonic 43D350DX. Placed an order with flipkart at 26.5k
(considering brand n price, mostly SD usage , rarely sport with SD itself, over micromax UHD )
Waiting for TV to get delivered... I will update review after weeks usage.

Also I am sure ARC, might not be there, saw some flipkart cust review, It might be on sometimes reviews are not 100% accurate... But there is definitely digital optical audio out will serve purpose..

Big Thanks Abhishek for your suggestions.

Hi Abhishek,

I saw all the below comments and planned to buy 43w950D but many of the stores says that this model is not available and out of stock.
In some stores they suggested some other samsung models, M5570.
So I totally confused which one to buy .Could you please suggest me one good model in samsung.
Is M5570 is good to buy and what is the difference between K5570 and M5570.
And according to the stores which I visited ,Sony is not going to manufacture TV's anymore in future that is why I changed my mind to samsung otherwise my choice is Sony only.
Pls suggest
Thanks in advance!

52
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Manohar,

Sony KDL-43W950D has Triluminous display technology which makes its picture quality really good. It is available on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2pS6e5Y and on Flipkart: http://fkrt.it/EudZx!NNNN ... (in case you wish to purchase online). There is another model from Sony KDL-43W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBvESF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW!!d!NNNN ) which has quite similar specs but lacks Triluminous display. Samsung 43K5570 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2nXf56Z , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/SeXyHTuuuN ) would also be really good but it will be more comparable to KDL-43W800D. I could not find a model with number M5570, so I could not compare the specs and quality. But 43W950D is the best.

Also Sony is one of the leading manufacturer of TVs, so I doubt that they will shut shop so easily.

53

Please help me with your thoughts based on your knowledge with specs and usability

Hi Vidhya,

Here are some good models:

Vu LED40D6575 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBqypt , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5J!NpTuuuN ) .... this is a 40 inch Full HD TV
Micromax 40Z7550FHD (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/tIPNB!NNNN ) ... again a 40 inch Full HD TV.

These two would be the best choices as they are 40 inch Full HD TVs.

Otherwise you can look at:

Vu LED32D6475 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBuEOl , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5JtnZTuuuN ) ... this is HD Ready 32 inch, but refresh rate is good. But I doubt that refresh rate would be really important in case your mother watches TV. This is a SMART TV as well.

Panasonic TH-32D400D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezlXlW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e2w~m!NNNN )
Philips 32PFL5039/V7 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eqacQz )

But again I think that the 40 inch TVs with Full HD would be better. As for buying online, I think you should look at the seller rating before buying. Sellers online are very keen on getting good rating and they make sure that their ratings are good. Look for seller with high number of ratings and good ratings.

Like for the Vu model mentioned at the top here is the link to sellers information: http://amzn.to/2pyOocZ .... if you see, there are 5 sellers (I hope you also see the same), and one is newly launched and 4 are old ones with good ratings. Go for the one with highest ratings and strong positive.

My second question is that which smart tv function is better as per present terms and also future vision? lg web os v/s sony android v/s panasonic fire fox v/s samsung tizen? at present i read in google research that andoid tv start from last one years and till they need some revolution or other function also lg web os is far batter against all is it true?

61
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I would kind of agree to your last statement. In terms of WebOS, I think LG has the best features. But I have a strong feeling that Google will beat the competition in future, so Android will eventually turn out to be default OS (just like it is on phones).

62

I have planning to buy television. i have no problem of budget i saw also so many brands product in market. i have first question that if i buy 4k tv or UHD tv than it should be mandatory that if i buy minimum 55 inch or more SIZE tv than i get it's real and 100% result. or if i buy 43 inch television than i also get 100% result.

63
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sudip,

43 inch is starting range for UHD because that is the size when you get to see "some" difference in UHD. But the difference would not be great. And as the size increases the difference will start getting better. So at 55 inch you can see some real difference between FHD and UHD. But it is not that you will see no difference in 43 inch. But then it will be very minor.

64

Plz ans b'coz I am going to buy next few days.
Plz also suggest me which one I buy smart or non smart

69
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jatinder,

SMART or non SMART is a very personal choice. If you watch a lot of content online then go for SMART else you do not really need SMART. However, I would say that the better TVs which are more feature rich have better picture quality as well. So you will find that the TVs with better picture quality usually are SMART TVs these days. In your budget you can look at these:

LG 43LF6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eOvMAN , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5HEMpTuuuN )
Panasonic TH-43DS630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eqLIEW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eWCi~!NNNN )
Samsung 40K5570 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rmZuOA , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kcGXWTuuuN )

Hello Abhishek,

Eagerly awaiting your reply.

Thanks in advance.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here are a few very good TVs that you can get in your budget:

LG 43UF770T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e3zul5 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eWVJ6!NNNN ) ... this is a UHD TV with fast refresh rate ... would be the best buy in your budget.

Sony KDL-43W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBvESF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW!!d!NNNN ) ... Sony picture engine X Reality Pro is great. This model also has fast refresh rate for crisp picture quality. But a 43 inch TV.

Panasonic TH-49DS630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e7iYCp , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW5c6!NNNN ) ... a great TV with good refresh rate, 49 inch and for a great price.

Panasonic TH-49CX400DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eq6Ixq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/rYLaP!NNNN ) .... a UHD TV of 49 inch ... basic entry level UHD TV ... but at a great price.

72

Thanks for your quick response.
Budget raised a little bit.
Planning to go for " Sony 125.7 cm (50 inches) BRAVIA KDL-50W950D Full HD 3D Android LED TV "
Cost : 94,000

Wanted to have your inputs (Pros and Cons ) for the same.
Thanks

73
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

This model is a fantastic model. The strongest pro for this model is the combination of X reality Pro and Triluminous display. It will have very good picture quality (as the refresh rate is also high). With ClearAudio+ and acoustic duct subwoofer the sound quality will also be great. The only downside that I see is that in almost the same price you can get a UHD 4K TV of similar size and equally good refresh rate from LG. At 50 inch, UHD will certainly make some difference in picture quality. However, you will have to compare it in stores as Triluminous display is a very strong picture engine and the difference should not be huge.

75
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sai,

Among the models you have listed I think Panasonic TH-49DS630D would be the best value for money. It is available for a great price and its specs are good. Otherwise Samsung 49K5570 would be the best in terms of picture quality. In the same price range you can also check: LG 49LF6310 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEqDf!NNNN ). It has really good specs.

76

thnak you.

Sony KDL-50W800D , 55W800D or LG 49LH600T or 55LH600T

confused between the above, my hall length is 18 feet from tv.

77
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony KDL-55W800D (Amazon link: http://amzn.to/2qgZRxX ) would be the best choice.

78

hi... i m planning to buy tv ...40inch and above...my preference is sony, panasonic and samsung.. i neglected lg bcoz its screen was not so bright as i was told by the shop people that lg ips screen was like it.. so i shortlisted to sony , panasonic and samsung.. while browsing i found that most of the samsung having very low refresh rate compared with sony and panasonic....is it really affect d quality..if it doesnt affect means tell me best samsung models..i ve shortlised few models from sony and panasonic ...pls help me decide it... sony(w672e, w752d) , panasonic(43ds630d)

79
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Nagaraj,

It is not that Samsung models have low refresh rate. The problem is that the numbers that are used to denote the refresh rate are confusing. Evey brand uses different standard to show refresh rate which makes comparison a bit difficult. We have given a table above on this page to do some comparison. I would say Sony and Samsung have the best picture engine and you will certainly find the picture quality in these two quite good. What is your budget for this TV? If can mention that, then I can suggest you some models.

80

tanq so much fa your reply.. my budget is below 60k...40 to 43 inch ok..do u ve any idea abt newly launched sony tvs (w67e and w77e) is it a gud one... or shall i go fa samsung or panasonic..

81
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

W67E series is a bit basic series. It has basic refresh rate (of 50 Hz) and nothing too great to boast about that you can get in your budget. W77E still has Triluminous display which is good, but then again the refresh rate is just 50Hz. The best that I could find your budget are these:

Samsung 43KU6000 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eznrgb , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW056!NNNN ) .... you will have to increase the budget by 5K as this is about 65K on Amazon (brand fulfilled). But it is a UHD TV with high refresh rate. It also has HDR and Ultra Clear View technology from Samsung.

Sony KDL-43W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBvESF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW!!d!NNNN ) .... does not have Triluminous Display but refresh rate is real fast. Fast moving action scenes would look good on this. But then you may compare the brightness of this TV with the one with the one with Triluminous Display. I think this should be a better TV.

Samsung 40K6300 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5z~nXTuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2lNPcZj ) ..... it is a curved TV which can give better immersive experience. Refresh rate is also good. And this also has Ultra Cleat View Technology from Samsung. Overall a good TV.

82

Hello Abhishek,

Hope your doing well..

Need your help in buying a 49-55 inch tv. Budget is around 75-90k. I had shortlisted on Sony 50w800d and Samsung curve tv but now im confused. Im open to any other models as well.

tv would be mainly used for watching movies and sports.

Appreciate your help. Thank you in advance.

83
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think you have picked up the best models. Here are the best that I could figure out:

Sony KDL-50W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBxV0j , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEhN4!NNNN )
Samsung 49K6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e3yOfK , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eWLcd!NNNN )
LG 49LF6310 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEqDf!NNNN )

Of all I think Sony and Samsung have best picture engine. And the refresh rate of Sony model is quite fast, so it will be really good for watching sports. The other two models also have fast refresh rate. But X-Reality Pro is a great picture engine from Sony. I would say Sony has a better model.

Hello..
M a plnning to buy an ped tv ..25000 s ma budget ..my prefermce s a branded only .. is it wise to buy to but a sony 32 inch led ?? Or shall i look gor any other brand .. my need s that i need a tv with almost better features and durability too.. durability is a concern that is why am not looking at the other brAnds like llyod , vu n micromax .. which one iwold selct a premium one like sony or a semipremium brand like lloydd or vu on sm like that

85
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Shyamlal,

Premium brands like Sony, Samsung and LG have better technology in general. So their picture/sound quality for similar specs is quite better. So if you ever compared a Vu UHD and Sony UHD, you will find Sony to be lot better. But then in brands like Vu and Micromax, you will get same specs for quite cheap and thus in a certain budget, you can get better specs from Vu or Micromax than Sony, Samsung.

Like in your budget you can get 40 inch Full HD TV from Vu LED40D6575 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBqypt , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5J!NpTuuuN ) ... and it has good specs. But it will not be as good as a 40 inch Full HD TV from Sony, Samsung, LG in picture/sound quality.

As far as durability is concerned, I would say electronics in general are quite delicate. A little hard impact can damage the screen. Some power surge can damage the TV. And it can be from any brand. Such situations damage the TV and the cost of repair goes high for premium brands. You can protect TV from power surges by using a surge protector, but then physical impact can be difficult to manage.

86

I m planning to but an lcd tv my budget s 25000 .. need n lcd tv with good features n a decent brand .. i prefer branded ones than other .. is it wise to buy a sony tv .. or else shall i move to another option .. durability is must for me .. i don want to change ma tv n 3-4 yrs . So pls prefer a good model..

87
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at these TVs:

Panasonic TH-32C460DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qNiohA ) ... this is a full HD TV
Sony KLV-32R412D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2qNwhfF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/1W44I!NNNN )..... this is a good TV if you can stretch your budget a bit.
Panasonic TH-32D400D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezlXlW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e2w~m!NNNN )
Samsung 32FH4003 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2exjSd0 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5LhwUTuuuN )
LG 32LF550A (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezl1hy , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/enac8!NNNN ).

Sony TVs have great picture quality and have great technology.

88

How abt s somy KL- 32W402E ?? Wht s diff bw 302E AND 412D

89
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

412D is a better TV because it has better refresh rate and better sound output as well. Refresh rate of 412D is Motionflow XR 200Hz and that of 302E is Motionflow XR 100 Hz, so the picture will look smoother on 412D. Also as for sound, 412D has a woofer as well and the sound output is 8W+8W+14W RMS, and that of 302E is 5 W + 5 W (RMS) .... so 412D is certainly a much better model.

90

Thankzz for d reply sir .. it really helped me well ... i ws very much confused bfor .. nw i ws set .. Thankz a lott sir

91
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Santhosh,

Higher resolution packs in more pixels. If the screen size is small, those pixels will be so packed that you will not be able to notice the difference. Just like on a small smart phone, you would not notice much difference between a 5-6 Megapixel photo and 12 Mega pixel photo, because there is not enough space in the screen for each pixel to stand out. Whereas when the screen is big, each pixel stands out properly and you notice the difference. In fact in big screen less pixels will look really bad.

43 inch is entry level UHD screen. That is the size at which one can notice minor difference between Full HD and UHD, but certainly not a whole lot. You can look at any of these models:

As for reviews, I would say that Flipkart and Amazon have very genuine reviews from real customers. That is the best feedback that you can get from anywhere about any model. Any website reviewing models can give you just limited feedback. But these platforms have real feedback.

92

Ok cool thank you for the feedback. Appreciate it.

hi,
my budget upto 80,000.
hall in length 20 feet.
need 55inch smart. please suggest brand.

94
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sai,

If you are not picky on premium brand then I would say you must look at VU LTDN55XT780XWAU3D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezr2e1 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEmu6!NNNN ).... this is a UHD SMART TV and in 55 inch, UHD does make a difference. In premium brands, UHDs are expensive. But this is quite reasonable and has good picture quality.

If you are looking at premium brand then you can look at these:

LG 55LH600T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eeZGif , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/z5JZ2TuuuN ) ... This is a Full HD TV and is a good SMART TV.

In Panasonic you can look at TH-58D300DX (this is a 58 inch TV) : Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2q5yTcy .... but this is not a SMART TV, but you can easily convert it into SMART by putting a chromecast.

Another good UHD TV (with high refresh rate but not SMART) that you can get is Philips 55PUT7791/V7 .... this is UHD, has high refresh rate. But is not SMART .... but you can make it smart by putting a chromecast.

95

Hi Abhishek,

Hi Kalpesh,

Sony KLV-32W562D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezlK2g , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5jeaOTuuuN )

If you want 40 inch and can stretch your budget a bit then you can also look at LG 40LF6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eODYBb )

i found LG 40LF6300, LLOYD L40URJ, VU LED40K16 and SONY KLV40W562D in this website
cannot decide which one to go for and need suggestion (even though out of my selection), can afford upto 40,000/-
thank you

98
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Satish,

Although a UHD in 40 inch would not make a whole lot of difference but then Vu LED40K16 UHD (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezn1pW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5HTFUTuuuN ) also has good refresh rate. Although I would not say that their picture engine is fantastic. But then other specs for this model look good. You can also look at Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2dUuwY0 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eMIfz!NNNN ). This one also has good refresh rate and Panasonic is a premium brand. The LG and Sony models you have listed would not fit in 40K.

99

Hello Mr. Jain,
I am looking for 55 inch TV for regular usage ( smart, Full HD) Hardly 3 hours a day.
Please suggest me which brand to go with ?
As normal usage will Vu / Philips be a better option ? else any better option ?
Budget is up-to 60,000/-.
TIA.

100
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Hemanth,

Vu/Philips would certainly be the best brands that you can get in 60K. In fact config of Philips model 55PFL5059/V7 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eznQz0 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e75aL!NNNN ) is quite good. The refresh rate is better. It does not have SMART option but then you can always add a chromecast to it. The other good option would be Vu LED55uH8475 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2p8wydy , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/1J8pO!NNNN ) which is SMART TV and good refresh rate. You can choose among these models.

is quite good

101

Thank You. Is it feasible to go with chrome cast or a Vu smart tv ? as Vu Tv the model isnt available , says out of stock in 9 areas in Hyderabad.

102
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can always go with Chromecast.

KDL-43W950D
KDL-43W800D, Could you please suggest me the best model, I am not very keen on 3d tv as the available content with good quality Is low.
Thanks in advance.
Jagadeesh

105
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jagadeesh,

Sony KDL-43W950D is much superior than the other two models you have listed. It has high refresh rate along with Triluminous display. X-Reality Pro is there in all three. But then this model is far superior than the other two in terms of picture quality.

106

KDL-43W950D is 10K higher side compare to KDL-43W800D dose is worth for sub-woofer..

107
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

950D is expensive because of Triluminous display which will be close enough to UHD clarity.

108

Thanks for you advice Abhishek

109

Hi Abhishek,
Sony has launched KLV-43W772E , could you pls review and compare it with KDL-43W950D KDL-43W800D, and advice good model. Thanks in advance

110
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony KDL-43W950D has high refresh rate along with Xreality pro and Triluminous display. The refresh rate in KLV-43W772E is low, so fast moving sport and video games may feel a bit blurry (in comparison, not that it will look bad). But KLV-43W772E has triluminous display which is not there in KDL-43W800D. But KDL-43W800D again has fast refresh rate.

If you plan to watch just basic tv (and not too much of sports and video games) then KLV-43W772E would be better. But if you ask me for the best then I would still say Sony KDL-43W950D is the best.

111

Hi,
I am planning to buy a TV 24 inch to use in a room, Apart from watching TV or USB movie, I also want to use this as a secondary monitor. So I prefer full HD. But there is less option for full hd TV with 24 inch size. I see only philips have 3 models. My budget is Rs. 15,000. Can you please recommend me a good option.

112
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

There are few brands that have it like Toshiba, Vu, Philips, Videocon, Sansui. But the best models (with good refresh rate) are from Philips only.

Philips 24PFL4571/V7 and Philips 24PFL3951/V7 have the best refresh rate.

Otherwise you can also look at these:

Toshiba PA200-24
Vu LED24D2100
Vu LED 24E6545

113

Thanks for suggestion. I will think over it.

114

Hi I have confusion between these model
In Philips 24PFL3159 and 32PFL4231
I have Lg 24LH454A but viewing angle is very bad, now i seen these two Philps models in market i like both but my only use is watch moveis via pen drive and usb ... plz suggest me which is better option

115
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Pankil,

Usually Full HD or HD Ready does not make a whole lot of difference till 32 inch TV size. So I do not think that going for a 24 inch Full HD will have a lot of advantage. The 32 inch model has louder sound and both of them can play a whole lot of movie formats from USB. I think it will be wiser to go for 32 inch model 32PFL4231.

116

Thanks for suggestion I'll go for it

117

Is there any better option around 17k

118
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you can spend about 19K then you can look at these 2 options. They are good:

Vu LED32D6475 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBuEOl , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5JtnZTuuuN )

Panasonic TH-32D400D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezlXlW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e2w~m!NNNN )

119

I've seen today Lg 32LH564A is it good?

121

122

I want to purchase 43 inch Tv and budget is around 60k. which is best option (need good refreshing rate,picture quality)
Does IPS panel have maintenance/repair issue.

123
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Komal,

Although UHD should not make a whole lot of difference in 43 inch, but if you want UHD TV then you can look at LG 43UF640T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eOzH0A , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/er!ad!NNNN ) ..... but if you want Full HD then this one is really good: Samsung 43K5570 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2nXf56Z" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://amzn.to/2nXf56Z , Flipkart Link: http://amzn.to/2nXf56Z" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://amzn.to/2nXf56Z )

I have not heard of any panel repair issue in IPS panel. Most cell phones use IPS Panel. Even iPhone has IPS panel.

124

Thanks for reply!

Any model in SONY? how about triluminos display in sony TV i.e KDL43W950D
I want to now does in 43 inches we will see difference in below three model in picture quality
1. KDL 43W800D

LG is the best when it comes to SMART features and regular upgrades. Sony uses Android OS, which is also very good. Among the 3 SONY TVs you have listed, Sony KDL-43W950D is the best in terms of refresh rate, picture quality and sound output as well. Picture quality is good in KDL-43W950D and KDL 43W800D. KLV-43W752D has basic refresh rate. The other two are fast.

126

In sony KDL-43W950D and KDL 43W800D have same refreshing rate.
But KDL-43W950D has triluminos display.
is it worth to purchase triluminos display in 43 inches.

which is better LG 43UF640T, Sony KDL 43W800D or Samsung 43K5570.

127

Triluminous Display does not bring in extra pixels. It is a modification of backlight design. It should certainly be worth it even in 43 inch.

LG 43UF640T is a UHD TV. It has more pixels or information, but then 43 inch is not a huge size to notice significant benefit of UHD. Between Samsung 43K5570 and Sony KDL-43W800D, I think Sony KDL-43W800D would be better (my bad for not including it earlier).

128

can you little elaborate on backlight design(different types of backlight design).
Any other brand which uses backlight design?

129
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Komal,

Backlight is there in every TV. Both LED and LCD TV use Liquid Crystal Display or LCD screen. The difference between LCD and LED is the backlight. Backlight is used to create images on screen. Backlight is a light source (or a bulb) that glows behind the LCD to create images. Imagine LED bulbs glowing behind a screen to create image. Here is wikipedia link of backlight: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backlight

Now the real engineering lies in the picture engine that effectively produces light (of different colors, brightness, etc) to generate images.

This is what Sony writes about Triluminous displays: "TRILUMINOS Display selectively maps colours across the wide gamut available thanks to the specially-developed backlight, subtle colours do not become oversaturated and unnatural. You'll enjoy vivid, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. "

So backlight is there in every TV (LED or LCD), but Sony has a special engineering that improves the colours. Every brand has different picture engine. Sony has XReality Pro, Samsung has HyperReal, etc ..... these are all proprietary technologies that take signals coming in and process them so that the "backlight" is lit in such a way that it appears better. In general, Sony's technology is considered as the best followed by Samsung.

130

Thanks for the explanation.
so any other brand uses like triluminos display?

131
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Samsung has Quantum Dots display in SUHD (more on it over here: https://www.cnet.com/news/what-is-samsung-suhd/ ) .... and LG has OLED TVs which would be comparable.

132

Does KDL-43W950D need voltage stabilizers.

133
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

TVs do not need voltage stabilizer.

134

Thanks once again.

135

Hi Abhishek,

I am planning to buy 43", which one you suggest to buy? Brands like VU, SANYO, BPL are good model in this size? Or shall i boy LG,Panasonic,Phlips,Samsungs ? Which would you suggest to buy

136
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ashish,

All depends on your budget. If I have no limits, then I would go for a high end model from the brands like Sony, Samsung, LG (premium brands with best technology). If I have limits, then I will try to maximize accordingly.

It's like if I have no limits, I would buy Apple iPhone7. But if I have limits, I will try to see what is the best that can fit in my budget.

137

Dear Abhishek Ji,

Please suggest me a LED tv having 50 or 55 inch. I am getting confuse in models. I am also getting confuse in full HD or UHD. My budget is 80 to 90K Which modal and brand better.

please suggest me.

Thanks

138
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ashish,

In general UHD will get you a better picture quality in 50-55 inch size range. And if you can get a UHD model from a good brand then that would be a better choice. Based on the data that I have, I think you might get Panasonic TH-55CX400DX which is a UHD model and Panasonic is one of the better brands in TVs. I could not find it on Amazon or Flipkart, but you should be able to get it in about 90-92K.

Otherwise you can also look at these models:

Philips 55PUT7791/V7 (this has high refresh rate as well)
Vu TL55C1CUS

If you are looking for Full HD then this models would be fantastic:

Sony KDL-50W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBxV0j , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEhN4!NNNN )

139

Sir, What you recommendation in above mention modals.... Panasonic, philips, vu or sony.... As per you view what is best I will go for that...

140
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think Philips 55PUT7791/V7 would be great choice if you are not too picky for a premium brand.

If you need premium brand then if you watch regular content (not fast action sports, video games, etc) then Panasonic TH-55CX400DX would be better. Else if you do watch fast action sports, etc and you want a brand with the best technology, then Sony KDL-50W800D would be better.

141

Hi,
Thanks for the information.
Hows the life of videocon Led TV any drawback on this.. suggest some models on videocon as well plz.

142
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Videocon TVs also work well. However, they do not have a full HD TV in 32 inch. But frankly it does not matter a lot in 32 inch TV. It is the starting size range for Full HD TV. You can look at these TVs from Videocon:

Videocon VJU32HH18XAH
Videocon VMR32HH18XAH
Videocon VMA32HH18XAH

143

Hi Abhishek,
I have used LG LED 32'' with FULL HD Smart but it worked for 2 years and the suddenly i can hear only sound without video as per LG Service engineer need to replace Display which cost around 13k to repair. so option for me is to buy new TV instead of repair it.. can u suggest me some good option around 30K for 32'' inch LED TV.

144
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Raja,

Samsung UA32K5100ARLXL (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2otHhym , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/j22SVTuuuN ) would be the best model in this price range. Otherwise you can also look at Panasonic TH-32C470DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2onjDH9 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/jYVpJTuuuN ). These two would be good buys.

145

146
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Umme,

Here are a few models that you can look at:

Panasonic TH-32D400D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezlXlW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e2w~m!NNNN )
LG 32LH516A (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e7g68v , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/s4WgtTuuuN )
Vu 32K160MREVD (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2olmIUP , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/s4IyiTuuuN )

The Panasonic model is the best in terms of specs.

147

Hi Abhishek. Need your advice regarding tv purchase.
My budget is around 80k. And I'm confused b/w 43w950d or 50W800D. Which one do you suggest? I prefer picture and sound quality than peripheral features like smart TV, 3D etc. Any other suggestions(LG, SAMSUNG) also welcome. Thanks.

148
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Reddy,

950D is a more advanced series from Sony and would have better picture quality as well as sound. The 43 inch may be smaller to 50 inch from 800D series. But then on the whole 43W950D is a better package. It has Triluminous Display for better picture quality, it also has better sound system with 4 x 10W RMS output as compared to 2 x 10W RMS output of 800D series.

I think 43W950D would be a great choice. Sony has good picture quality in general.

149

Hi Abhishek. Thanks for your suggestion. Yesterday I went to nearest TV showroom to purchase W95D(Sony)-50ich tv. It was priced at 90k. But showroom guy suggested, LG 4k: 49UH770T model which is of same price but with 4k quality. I checked SD, HD, 4k content on both TVs and found LG 49UH770T has better picture quality. Also with 49UH770T they are offering a 2.1 sound system (LGS355B).

But I got confused b/w two TVs.
Can you please suggest me between 49UH770T VS 50W95D. Both priced around 90k. Also any other better TV in the same range. I stretched my budget for the same. Thanks in advance.

150
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

LG 49UH770T is a UHD and so it will obviously feel better as there are more pixel. Did you observe the picture quality for a fast moving object? Because LG has not mentioned refresh rate for this model on its website. 50W95D has really fast refresh rate (good for fast moving action scene). Similar UHD model with fast refresh rate from LG would be LG 49UF850T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2nCG6fK ) .... but if you do not plan to watch fast moving action scenes then 49UH770T would be nice. It is UHD so it will have better picture quality. Or you may even look at LG 49UF640T (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/p0U11TuuuN )

151

Thank you very much, Abhishek.

152

Greetings!
Could you please let me know the difference between LG 43LF513A, 43LH516A, 43LH520T etc.? How does the F, H T A etc corresponds to the features? I am confused with the choices and need to understand which one is the best for A. good audio quality, B. Picture quality C. power consumption? I need the USB and HDMI ports. Budget between 30K to 40K.

153
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

The specs are more or less the same but there are a few differences:

1) 43LF513A has 10 W RMS audio output while other two have 20W. So the sound will be louder on the other two.

2) 43LH520T has LG's famous mosquito away technology. This is to keep mosquitoes away from the area where TV is located.

3) 43LH520T and 43LH516A are quite similar just that 43LH520T has mosquito away. Both have USB play to run multiple media formats.

4) 43LH516A is BEE 5 star rated.

All have 1 HDMI and 1 USB ports.

I think 43LH516A is the best model among these.

154

Hi Abishek thanks a lot for your suggestion, The dealers are confusing if we go to check out for models..Samsung fits my budget, but i want to know is there any difference to watch at home with 4k and full hd..if full HD is enough for house i can settle with samsung..If LG is better than that i ll try to go for that..Whats your opinion, Samsung is better than LG? if so i ll stick to full HD itself. Please advice..

or if there is any other model in samsung or LG whatever u prefer between 70k and 80k pls suggest that also..Thanks in advance

Hi Jasper,

The transmission for most channels in India is in Full HD, There are only few sports channels available in 4K. Although a 4K TV will try to upscale Full HD transmission to 4K, but then you will get better Full HD TV in your budget. You can look at these two models:

Samsung 49K6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e3yOfK , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eWLcd!NNNN )

And

LG 49LF6310 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEqDf!NNNN )

156

Thanks a lot Abishek for your valuable advice. Will look into it and get back to you.

157

Hi Abishek.
Does IPS panel will affect in the long run or is it good.

I have checked in two TVs on my budget LG 49UH770t, UH650t and Samsung K5570..Which one is worth buying. Samsung is quite cheaper compared to the three..

158
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you have a likelihood of someone hitting the TV hard then go for IPS panel as it is quite durable. This is especially in case you have babies at home who are likely to hit the TV. Else it does not make a whole lot of difference. There are many more things to consider than just IPS.

The samsung model you have listed in Full HD where as the LG models you have listed are Ultra HD and that is what explains the price difference. Otherwise with similar features, usually Samsung is more expensive. If you want UHD then 49UH770T is the latest model with better specs. All depends on what you want in your TV. Otherwise Samsung UA49K5570AUMXL is a great TV if you want Full HD.

159

ABHISHEK SIR..l WISH TO PURCHASE SONY 50W800D.BUT SELLER IS ADVICED FOR SMART OPTIONS LG WEB O.S 3.0 IS BEST.SONY TAKE TOO.. MUCH TIME(4 MINUTES) CONNECT TO INTERNET. AT ALL ASPECTS LG IS BEST THAN SONY HE IS ADVICED.IS IT TRUE.PLS SUGGEST. THANK YOU SIR

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello,

In general LG's SMART features are better as compared to Sony. Last year Sony did try to improve it by bringing in Android TVs. The model you have selected from Sony does have Android, but I would still say that LG has better OS. Sony in general is better in picture quality. So if picture quality is your concern, then go for Sony, otherwise for SMART features go for LG. Compare the two TVs in store and see it for yourself.
