Best Television / TV Brands in India

These are considered as premium brands in India. These brands have latest and greatest technology available in the market. Japanese brand Toshiba or Dutch brand Philips are also good, but if you are looking for decent value for money brands then you may look at the new and upcoming brands like Vu, Micromax and Sanyo. Technology wise the premium brands are far superior but they are expensive. In general most brands in India do not offer warranty of more than 1 year on TVs, and bad power quality does damage TVs in several places, thus lot of people prefer to go for the value for money brands.

Things to look for while buying a TV

Size of the TV:

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

To illustrate the effect the size of tv has on the viewing experience, let us look at an example. If you buy a large sized TV (above 40 inches) then there is a certain distance at which you have to sit from the tv 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 TV in order to have a nice viewing experience.

It’s in the “Pixels”

When we are talking about the screen resolution, or in other words, the clarity of the tv, 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 TV. In India, four types of screen resolutions in TVs 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 TVs 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.

Refresh rate

The video playing on a TV 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 TV 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 TV (like racing, or high graphics games) then you should go for a TV 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 TVs. 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 tv 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 tv.

Sound (RMS Output)

Another important aspect now-a-days is the sound quality of TVs. If you look at some models, you shall find that a RMS power rating is given to TVs. For example. a tv 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.

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.

Picture Engine

In a bid to enhance the viewing experience of the customers, newer technologies are continuously being invented and implemented in TVs. 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 tv. 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 tv, 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.

Additional features: Smart TV and 3D TV

3D tv is a new innovation in the field of TVs. In addition to the features the are provided by a regular TV, 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 TVs 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 tv.

Buying a TV: 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 tv which affect the electricity consumption.

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

a) Small-sized tv (22 inches or lesser): TVs 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 tv (22 inches to 40 inches): In this category, customers have two choices: LED tv or LCD tv. 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 TVs (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 TVs (HD Ready, Full HD, Ultra HD) is higher than the regular TVs 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 tv, then a higher refresh rate is advisable. However, higher the refresh rate, more the electricity consumption.

4. Sound (RMS output): TVs 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 TV / Computer / Audio System electricity consumption“.

Conclusion

We have seen that how different models and features affect the power consumption of a tv. It is true that people do not pay much heed to the power consumption while making a purchase for a tv, 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 TV. This will not only help in optimising the electricity consumption, but also help in selecting the best TV suited to your needs.

Looking at buying a 55 inch tv.
Had frozen on Lg - 49UJ752T but heard about the Mi Tv which just released.
Whats your take on the spec comparison between the two.
Thank you

2
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Colin,

LG is a premium brand. LG 55UJ752T not only has HDR, it also has Wide Color Gamut Technology, it has Dolby Vision technology and Nano Cell Display for better picture quality. Sound quality is also better with 20W RMS output. However, the Mi TV is a steal at that price. The difference between the two TVs would not be worth 70K that you pay extra in buying the LG TV. Mi TV does not have Wide Color Gamut, but has HDR. It also has Dolby Audio (although with just 16 W RMS audio output). There are other positives of MI TV: 1) They have ab brezzel less design and a very thing and stylish TV. 2) Their OS has some new technology which connects transmission from Dish with the SMART TV content and it also has good personalization.

So now if you ask me which one is better then I would say LG model is better. But as I said, Mi TV is available at such a price, that one cannot ignore it. And the technology in Mi TV is also far better than the other cheaper competitors like Vu, etc. So Mi TV is available for a steal. If you are not too picky about high end technology, I would say go for Mi TV. The deal just looks too good to believe.

3

I meant 55UJ752T not 49UJ752T.

4
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I would say: a lot depends on the kind of content you watch. If it is just for regular TV and some movies, then I would say Mi TV is a better deal. If you watch a lot of fast action sport, action movies, and want a great experience, then LG TV would be better. It also has a faster refresh rate.

Sir

Please suggest me best Value for money LED TVs 24" & 32" models in detail ( 2 models each with prices. Least price model for maximum feature & Right price for adequate features.).

6
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

There is not much to choose in terms of features and technology in 24 inch TVs. Most of them are plain and simple. You can look at these two in 24 inch:

Samsung 24K4100 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/1!qh!KNNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2o2EzR2 ) ... a highly rated TV by the users. HD Ready and a decent priced TV from a good brand.

Sony KLV-24P413D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/GO6cJnuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2nTnsSw ) .... Sony is the only brand that comes up with SMART TVs in this size. So this one is a SMart TV. Sound output is also better compared to most TVs in this size range. The difference in price is not much in this size range. So this comes across as a good choice.

IN 32 inch:

LG 32LJ573D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/1T~fQKNNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2o17yFN ) ... I think LG is the most value for money brand in the market and this model is a SMART TV, has great colors and picture quality. A good value for money product.

Vu 32D6475 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/Gm9FgnuuuN ) ... Vu I think is another value for money brand. Is not considered premium as LG is. But still good. This TV has good picture quality and is SMART TV as well. And decently priced.

7

What about Vu products

8
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

They are there in the lists.

9

Hi Abhishek,

Firstly, thank you for your valuable suggestions which help us in choosing the better product.
I'm planning to buy a 43-inch Smart TV and below are the features that I'm looking for :
Budget : 50K (can extend a little for a better product)
Future ready
Better service ( in Hyderabad)
Electricity consumption
good spec
Your valuable suggestions please

10
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Siva,

Here are a couple of TVs that I feel are future ready and should be really good in your budget:

LG 43UJ632T (Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/5uXO~nuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2BUj8q1 ) .... this one is a 43 inch UHD TV that has HDR for super contrast and has good color rendition as well. LG has best TV OS and so I think this one is a great choice.

Sony KLV-43W772E (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5uIcqnuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2EdvE9z ) .... although a FUll HD, but a great TV. Again has HDR and Triluminous Display for better color. Also has subwoofer for great sound. On the whole a great TV.

I think any of these two would be really good for you.

11

Looking to buy a 32" LED TV. Would prefer to go for non-chinese brand giving the best value for money. Suggest for smart as well as standard having 3/2 HDMI/2 USB port!!!

Hello Sir,

I am looking for a 28 or 29 inch TV within 20k. My requirements are

1. Video supports most of the formats while using USB.
2. Reads faster when using a external Hard Disk.
3. Refresh rate between 60-100 HZ
4. HD ready would be sufficient or depends upon price I can think of full HD
5. Picture and sound quality of 7 out of 10.

Can you suggest a good TV with above specifications with brands among Panasonic, Toshiba, Videocon, Sansui or Sanyo. I dont prefer LG and Samsung much but will consider . Anyother brand if you feel good please post it too. Thanks

18
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Paramesh,

28-29 inch is a rare size. Usually, brands either make 24 inch or 32 inch. In fact Sanyo starts from 32 inch. In Sansui you can get 24 inch. Videocon has 1 model of 28 inch. Toshiba does have models but I am not sure about their price. Also I am not sure about the read rates of external hard disk, so I cannot provide you models based on that filter. However, you can look at these (few models) that I could find:

Dear Abhishek,

How is the Brand TCL in india for LED TV's? I have seen some good reviews of TCL TV's in US and international markets. (TCL P series Roku TV for example)

20
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

The feedback (especially on e-commerce sites) for TCL is quite good in India as well. However, based on my observation, they have very basic TVs and do not have the latest technologies that are coming in for better picture quality like HDR, Wide Color Gamut, Faster refresh rates, etc. Among the brands that come out with economy models Vu is one brand which is still experimenting with newer technology. It still has some models that have some of these things. It gets extremely difficult to differentiate between models/brand when they have extremely similar specs. You have to go with user feedback for the same. And in general on e-commerce the feedback for brands like Vu, Micromax and Sanyo is more. And there again Sanyo is backed by Panasonic, so it does have good quality and Vu is the most popular brand online.

21

Thank you so much

22

I am planning to buy 32LH576D , which is available at 23k price on amazon/flipkart.
Is it good model in this range? Or should I go for any other model?
My budget is 25k.
I don't want to go for any new or unknown brand.

23
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Harsh,

I think LG 32LJ573D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/oGrKFLuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2DIPSoK ) is a newer and much better models as compared to 32LH576D. You will find lesser reviews for this model as it is newer but has better technology. It has better picture quality.

24

Hi Abhishek
I already bought sony 32inch w51d led tv for a price of 29k in local vendor how about my purchase is it wothy

In this tv im getting best sound bt i don't how to set its picture settings it is not much clear help me

25
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony KLV-32W512D is a very popular TV and it is a good buy. As for picture settings, I would suggest that you call up Sony customer care and they should be able to help you or send someone who can help you set the picture right.

26

Is this model worth buying
Its sound clarity was awesome any suggestions for better picture clarity

27
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

What is your budget for the TV and what are the specifications that you are looking for? If you can provide that then I can suggest you a few models.

28

Hi Abhishek
I have purchased 32inch w51d tv at a price of 29k in local vendor for my room of 10×11 how worth my purchase is

29
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony is a premium brand. They make good TVs. The model you have purchased is a good model.

30

Hi Abhishek
My budget is upto 44k suggest some top notch 43inch tv s it has best hardware nd good interface too

31
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here are a few models that you can consider (based on your budget):

1) If you are fine with a non premium brand then Vu 43S6575 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kgWQDTuuuN ) is one awesome deal. It is a 43 inch UHD TV (Better resolution than Full HD), it has HDR and wide color gamut, so the picture quality would be awesome. It is also a SMART TV and the price tag is just 24K. It is a model that is available for a steal!! A slight downside is the sound output which is just 14W RMS as compared to 20W. But it will have great picture quality.

2) LG 43LJ554T (Amazon link: http://amzn.to/2CIrO4U ) … this is a great Full HD TV which is also SMART. LG is a premium brand and the picture quality of this TV is amazing.

3) Panasonic TH-43DS630D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/x~dk2!NNNN ) …. again a great TV with Hexa Chroma Drive to bring fabulous colors. Another great TV in your budget. And also a premium brand.

Models from Sony start from 51K (if you are looking for sony based on you previous message).

32

Hello Abhishek,

Vu 43S6575 is FHD and no UHD, please correct me if I'm wrong. I've checked the specs on Flipkart link which you have shared and read the related FAQs on the same model

33
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Thanks for the correction. I also verified it and it seems that there was some confusion on Vu website which they also corrected. And that is why I had some wrong data.

34

On your portal also there is no clear information about which models have 5 star BEE Rating/4 star BEE Rating and 3 star Bee Rating in each category like 24 inch, 30 inch ,32 inch, 40 inch which are generally used. Also we need clear information that this model consume 40 watts ,or 45 watts or 50 watts, this specific information will help people while selecting energy efficient models. It is also observed that BEE Rated models are rare and one has to search for this and manufacturer increase cost of 5 star Rated model make them costly unnecessary than similar products.

35
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Kude,

Ideally every model should be registered with BEE, but not all models appear on BEE database ( https://beestarlabel.com/Home/Searchcompare ) .... we have tried to match information with BEE and wherever we could get star rating and annual electricity consumption, we have mentioned that. Now a few points based on our observation:

1) The difference between annual electricity consumption of a 5 star and 2 star or 1 star rated TV is about 30-40 units of electricity. Even at Rs 10 a unit (in Mumbai), it converts to Rs 300 a year.

2) The models with more electricity consumption are usually the ones that are more feature rich and with better picture quality. All the TVs available in India are LED or OLED. So there are no TVs with old inefficient technologies like CRT or LCD or Plasma. So there is very less scope of improvement or differentiation in two LED TVs.

3) BEE star rating for TVs became mandatory recently and there is lot of discrepancy between BEE database and what the manufacturers are selling. So it will take some time to get models sold in market synced with those on BEE database. Currently, the BEE database is still a work in progress.

4) Currently based on my observations, 5 star rated models are cheaper than 1 star models, because models with lower star ratings are actually more feature rich and thus expensive.

36

Tell me some best models in this brands and with value for money Abhishek

Thank you

37
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think these models from Panasonic would be the best value for money:

Panasonic TH-40ES500D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/M5DC!!NNNN ) ... this TV will have great picture quality.

Then these TVs are highly rated TVs:

Panasonic TH-40E400D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2lRSt7w , Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/Mg3i!!NNNN )
LG 43LH576T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2Cyhxuy , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/Mhwmc!NNNN )
Panasonic TH-43ES480DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2lQfska , Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/jenbATuuuN )

38

What about sony products

39
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony products are expensive for the similar quality. I thought your budget was 27K and so I tried to get good TVs as close to the budget as possible.

Hi Abhishek
Today i have seen local market shops for led tv they shows me some Panasonic 40inch fhd smart tv with price of 45k
Another sony bravia 43inch fhd smart tv price of 49k
Which one is better among these i thought that prices r too high than online purchase wr should i buy can you tell me the details wt they are i also seen lg 43inch fhd smart tv around 47k what should I go with
I don't know why they are such costly
Suggest the best
Thank you

41
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Jagadeesh,

I will be able to give you a response only when you provide the model number. Because there are multiple 43 inch and 40-inch models with different specifications by all these brands. Sony, Samsung would be the most expensive brands because they are premium brands and always have the best technology. LG and Panasonic are more value for money brand with great technology and slightly cheaper than Sony, Samsung. But these are the only 4 brands that bring in the latest technology in TVs. In cheaper brands, Vu is the only brand that has good technology in some of its models.

42

Hello Abhishekji,
I have cable connection in my home. I want to buy 43inch full HD LED tv. Budget is 40 to 45K. My viewing time is 1 to 2 hrs daily. Please suggest shall I go for SMART or full HD TV as I am using normal cable connection for viewing channels.

43
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Dhiraj,

SMART TV and normal cable connection have no relation. SMART TV lets you connect your TV with internet so that you can watch content available on Youtube, or netflix, etc. In fact these days most TV channels have their own online apps which are available for smart tvs and you do not need a cable connection and can watch most of the TV directly through internet through these apps. So it really depends on what you want. Also most premium brand TVs are SMART by default these days.

As for Full HD, at 43 inch it will be better that you go for a full HD TV as you will get better picture quality.

Here are a few models that you can consider:

1) If you are fine with a non premium brand then Vu 43S6575 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kgWQDTuuuN ) is one awesome deal. It is a 43 inch UHD TV (Better resolution than Full HD), it has HDR and wide color gamut, so the picture quality would be awesome. It is also a SMART TV and the price tag is just 24K. It is a model that is available for a steal!! A slight downside is the sound output which is just 14W RMS as compared to 20W. But it will have great picture quality.

2) LG 43LJ554T (Amazon link: http://amzn.to/2CIrO4U ) ... this is a great Full HD TV which is also SMART. LG is a premium brand and the picture quality of this TV is amazing.

3) Panasonic TH-43DS630D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/x~dk2!NNNN ) .... again a great TV with Hexa Chroma Drive to bring fabulous colors. Another great TV in your budget. And also a premium brand.

Hi sir,
I want to buy this TCL 99.1 cm (39 inches) L39D2900 Full HD LED TV (Black)
is it right buy or not
my budget 20k

45
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

In a budget of 20K, I think it is a good buy.

46

Hi Abhishek,

I have decided to buy TCL Led TV Full HD as I know for a fact that there is no point in buying a 4K or UHD in the current stage of available digital content in India. So keeping that in mind I can always convert my normal tv to a smart as I use a Amazon Fire TV Stick to watch HD content (Infact I don't use cable at all nor any DTH services).

Now the confusion is that TCL website shows a model in D2900 series which is TCL L40D2900 priced at 20,990/- but on Amazon.in it is 23,990/- which is 3000 more than the MRP as per the TCL website, apparently there are other models on Amazon in the same D2900 series TCL L39D2900 priced at 15,999/- and TCL L43D2900 priced at 23,999/-. When checked with the customer care team of TCL they are giving me all lame excuses as they are not even aware of such things and the final say is with Cloudtail a subsidiary of Amazon.in, after talking for a long time I understood that its no point in talking to them as they all either give wrong info misleading you or lame excuses. The info on the Amazon page is wrong in many aspects wrt specs.

(Reasons to buy TCL was decent amount of good reviews, 18 Months warranty, World top 5 OEM and reasonable price)

Refer to the links below to understand what im saying

TCL Site - https://goo.gl/EL5eAk
Amazon links - L39D2900 - https://goo.gl/uds97D, L40D2900 - https://goo.gl/e8zfos

My queries are as follows :

1. Now why would someone buy a 40 inch TV when they are getting 43 inch TV at the same price for the same series?

2. Also what is the difference between L39D2900 vs L40D2900 as there is huge price difference for just an inch? Is there a better panel on 40 inch it as TCL's site mentions that L40D2900 has Samsung panel. Not sure about other models as they dont have info on it (Weird thing ?)

3. Can you suggest any other brand model which is Full HD under 20K which is way better than TCL in terms of quality and service !!!

Awaiting your reply as im planning to buy the TV in couple of days, Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

47
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Kiran,

Here is my response to your questions:

1) A UHD is better when you buy a TV of 50 inch and above. At 40 inch FHD is better. Also, UHD TVs have upscaler to upscale FHD content to UHD. But then the size you are looking at, FHD is better.

2) The L40D2900 is not listed by Cloudtail. It is by some other seller (I can see the name as FH Retail ... check this link: http://amzn.to/2A2TKh9 ). Now TCL is selling directly through Cloudtail as well. And thus it is better to purchase through Cloudtail. Amazon has many other sellers on their platform and every seller has a different price listed. It is not necessary that you have to purchase from FH Retail. I think purchasing from Cloudtail is better.

3) Usually, 39 and 40 inch are considered as similar (some brands make or market 39 inch and some 40). But in general, in market, they are considered the same. However, there is certainly a confusion by TCL because the specs on their website mentions 40 inch, but what Cloudtail is selling is 39 inch.

4) If it fits in your budget, then you should go for 43 inch.

5) In less than 20K I do not think you can get any better 43 inch TV. You can get Vu H40D321 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2CulhwU , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/dL8hDTuuuN ) which is a more popular brand online. But I cannot say if it will have better service as compared to TCL.

How about cloudwalker spectra 43 inch from flipkart for < 20K

Is 39 inches tv good for my room or any big size.i have to use it with local dish cable...is vu delivers more picture quality than sony nd lg
Is Lloyd is good enough
Suggest me a sort out list im so confused

51
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

For an 10x12 room, any size above 32 inch would be good enough. 39 inch will also work fine. Usually, delivery of local dish cable is not as good as that of DTH providers. However, if you go for a SMART TV, you may not need dish cable as most TV channels are available on demand through app these days (just an idea if you want to explore). I would say Sony and LG are better than Lloyd. LG would be most value for money for you. I would say go for LG if you plan to buy from an offline store. Vu is something that is attractive online (only if you prefer buying online). Vu quality is good, however, I am not sure of their service delivery in your city. Sony and LG would be better in that sense. And I think LG would be the safest and best option. You can also explore sony if you want to.

52

Hi sir
Im planning to buy a tv but im confused between sizes and brands my room is 12×10 what size should I go with nd wether it should be smart or non smart
I asked some retail shops in local market they are showing me only lg products nd lloyd tvs
My budget is below 27k
Is there any difference in sony nd lg picture quality
I need sound quality
How about services of brands i don't have much knowledge on tvs
But i need best picture nd audio quality
Wether I should go for hd or fhd
Suggest me please in detail with product links

53
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jagadeesh,

Any size above 32 inch would be good enough for your room. If you want to watch content on the internet (youtube, netflix, etc), then it is better to go for SMART TV. In fact these days most TV channels are available on demand on the internet, and so if you have good internet connection, then you may not need a DTH connection as well. Also you can convert a regular TV to SMART using Amazon Fire stick.

To answer your questions:

1) Picture quality depends on technology. For similar specs, Sony may look better as compared to LG, but then that Sony TV would be expensive as Sony is slightly pricier as compared to LG. And in fact you can get fantastic specs from a brand like Vu in your budget where you can get far better picture quality as compared to sony, LG in your budget. For e.g. you can get a 43 inch Vu UHD TV in your budget which will have superb picture quality and is SMART as well.

2) You will not get high end sound in TVs in your budget. But the Sony model that I have listed below in this message has the best sound with subwoofer. It has pretty good picture quality as well. The Vu TV in my list below has fantastic picture quality (much better than the LG and Sony TV in the list), but sound may be a bit low.

3) Service varies from location to location, so it will be very difficult for me to comment. But LG and Sony have far better service network in India.

4) Difficult to get the best in everything, but you may want to go for the Sony TV mentioned below to balance the two.

5) In 32 inch, FHD or HD will not make much difference. However, in your budget you can get 43 inch UHD from Vu which would be interesting.

You can look at these:

Vu 43S6575 (Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/Oo9f!!NNNN ) … this is a 43 inch UHD TV with fast refresh rate, HDR and wide color gamut ….. this will be the best of bargain deals that you can get in 25K

else you can look at:

LG 32LH576D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2CrUNMC , Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/a7YU1TuuuN )
or Sony KLV-32R422E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2CktRiT , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/axlXVTuuuN )

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for your help in giving info regarding TV's.

So I need to change my TV. As my previous TV experience is bad, I wanted to avoid Sony.

Can you please suggest good tv with following criteria.
1. Cost: Around 80K (Will be able to put another 10-15K for a worth TV)
2. Screen size: 48-52 inches
3. Screen resolution: I'm looking for a 4K/UHD.
4. Make: Samsung or LG.

My father wants to buy a samsung, but as per online reviews I think LG has more value for money. Please correct me if wrong. Also please free to suggest any other advise.

Thank you,

Hi Jai,

LG is certainly more value for money. You get decently good quality and technology at a better price. Samsung may have a bit better picture quality, but then it is pricier. I think any of these two would be great TV for you:

Samsung 49KU6570 ( Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/7Fe7D!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2BO1BRg )
LG 49UJ752T ( Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/zXPi2TuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2BLv0LT )

Both of these have good refresh rate, both have HDR and both have really good color technology. And yes both are 4K. Sound quality would be similar on both.

56

Hi Abhishek
Congrats on this amazing website and research!

I really need your help in finalising a TV. Here is my need:
1. Ability to connect wirelessly MyCloud for pictures/ video browsing. DLNA.
2. UHD... not sure if 4K makes a huge difference.. What do you think?
3. Youtube/ PrimeVideo/ Netflix using inbuilt App or TV Browser. Wirelessly.
4. Price 120-130K
Note: I am really impressed by Vu specs and price, but I have never seen or spoken to someone who has actually used a Vu TV. I have issues trusting the brand. Not counting the thousands of reviews on Flipkart.

57
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Bharat,

What is the size that you are looking at? Because in 120-130K you can get better TVs from Sony, Samsung, LG or Panasonic which will be better than Vu. VU is good (with good feedback) but not as good as these premium brands. Also in your budget you can easily get SMART TVs that will have smart phone mirroring as well as laptop casting.

Also in a TV above 49 inch, UHD does make a difference. Because in bigger size TVs you need more pixels. In SMART TVs, you will get YouTube, Netflix built in.

I think Sony KD-49X9000E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2CbBBQW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/3qoeH!NNNN ) or Samsung 49MU7000 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/psCwhTuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2C8IqCB ) or LG 55UH650T (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/3bNsV!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2zB5zux ) would be great.

58

Sir
Is it worth of money to purchase KLV - 49W752E.

Please do reply

59
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Do you mean KLV-49W752D? If yes, then in the same price range Sony KLV-49W772E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2CczsEF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/pgdKNTuuuN ) would be better. In fact even the Ultra HD TV Sony KD-49X7002E (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/pPnTSTuuuN ) would be great.

Hi Sir, I am planning to buy a 39/ 40 inch Full HD LED TV. I want to connect to use amazon fire stick or chrome cast on TV(Non Smart). My budget is 20k-40k. I need tv with picture quality, sound quality, longer life and durable TV.
I don't have much knowledge about TV brands. My friends suggested Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, LG, Vu and llyod. Price different amoung TVs is huge. Please suggest me tv for my home

61
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony, Samsung, Panasonic and LG are premium brands. You can get some models in these TVs in your budget but those may not be the highest end models from these brands. However, you can get good Vu TV in your budget. Panasonic is cheapest among the premium brands, so some models from Panasonic are also be good.

I think Panasonic TH-40ES500D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/pNRxPTuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2BX6uM3 ) would be the best model in your budget with great technology. But you will find lesser user feedback on this model on ecommerce sites because this is a newer model. In terms of popularity, these models are the most popular ones in your budget:

Will you please tell some more model of Sony in 49 inches.

Out of three brand
SONY,SAMSUNG,LG which one is good to buy.

Please reply sir it's urgent

65
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

In Sony you can check Sony KD-49X8300D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/sp8X4TuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2Doa4M8 ) .... All these 3 are leading brands with their own pros and cons and you will get different people liking each of them .... in my personal opinion, Sony is really good in terms of picture quality. LG is great on User Interface and usage. Samsung balanced both. You can go for any one of them.

66

Hi Sir,
I am planning to buy a smart tv. My budget is 1.00 lac. I am looking for brands like SONY, LG,SAMSUNG. Can you please suggest me some model and which brand should I prefer.

67
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Arjun,

These TVs would be really good in your budget:

Sony KD-55X7002E (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/JDNULTuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2Bc5JdD ) .... A 55 UHD TV from Sony that has HDR for good contrast and Triluminous Display for better colors. Refresh rate is normal 50 Hz, but unless you plan to use it for gaming or watching fast action sports, it would not matter much. It also has Android OS.

If you go for 49 inch you can get slightly better specs (good refresh rate too). In that you can look at:

Samsung 49KU6570 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/YQIiX!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2BKAeZj ) ... a great TV with HDR, Active Crystal Display and high refresh rate as well.

LG 49UJ752T (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/J4bj6TuuuN ) ... another fantastic TV with great colors, HDR and refresh rate.

All of these are UHD TVs.

In 55 Inch you can get this TV which is very good: Panasonic TH-55EX600D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/YtH0j!NNNN ) ... this has HDR, Good Colors (Hexa Chroma Drive) and good refresh rate too.

68

Hello Sir,
I am planning to buy 49 Inches tv. I am looking for brands like:- Sony, Panasonic, LG. I am looking a TV around 50K~60K. Can you please suggest me few of the models?
Thanks a lot for your answer,
regards,

Achin

69
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Achin,

Sony would be expensive (about 70K and more). But you can get good models in LG. You can check

LG 49LJ617T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kAMROa , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/SqW!UTuuuN ) .... which has fantastic specs.
Another TV with similar specs (but minus magic remote) would be LG 49LJ554T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2BzQ4rW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/mA7SL!NNNN )

In Panasonic TH-49E460D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kEGLN0 ) would be interesting. If you can extend your budget then Panasonic TH-49DS630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2opDaYh , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/SQbz0TuuuN ) would also be very interesting.

70

Sir, I planning to get one LED TV. I would like to know in LG brand which model to go for. Below are my requirements
- Budget - 40 to 45K
- Excellent picture quality
- Inch 40 to 43
- I like to play movie from my phone, or display photos from my phone or laptop. Stream movies/videos from net . Do I have to go for smart TV or can I get these feature using chromecast

71
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You do not necessarily need a Smart TV to cast your phone on TV. A chromecast can do the job. However, if you want a TV with excellent picture quality, then the most advanced TVs with best picture quality invariably come with SMART features. And with SMART features, you can do whatever you want to do.

A very good TV with excellent picture quality in your budget would be LG 43LJ554T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2wGWM9r , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/H6ympTuuuN ) .... another TV with better remote (magic remote) would be LG 43LJ617T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2fMWn2y , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/z5ti3TuuuN ) .... The main difference between the two TVs would be magic remote only. Both have great picture quality.

72

Hi Abhishek,
My budget is 15k to 20K planning to purchase 32 inches tv.
suggest good TV can i go for Full HD, or smart TV.

73
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

In 32 inch, Full HD and HD Ready will not have a whole lot of difference. You can get 39 inch Full HD Vu TV in your budget: Vu H40D321 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/PyzZNTuuuN ) but it is not SMART. In 32 inch you can look at LG 32LJ525D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/Py5ZKTuuuN ) ... this one is also not a SMART TV, but has good picture quality. If you want SMART TV then you can look at Vu 32D6475 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/PQBSCTuuuN ) or Micromax 32 inch Canvas Led Tv (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/PiPXKTuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2B4cMrH ) .... These are all good TVs.

74

HELLO ABHISHEK,
I am planning to buy a 40 inch to 43 inch full hd LED TV.
My budget is 29,000 or below
I need HDMI connection as well.
I am looking at durability, picture quality and reasonable electricity consumption [ bijli bachau]
I am looking at Panasonic, Sanyo, Intex, VU or any other brands you may suggest
a] please suggest some TVs based on my requirement
b] How do you rate INTEX tv as a brand ?

Thanks and Regards,
Dr Bhavin
Powai, Mumbai

75
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Dr Bhavin,

All HD TVs these days have HDMI connection, so that will not be a problem. In terms of popularity, I think Vu and Sanyo are more popular with more positive feedback. Vu, in general, has good technology and among all Indian brands it stands out as one that is trying to compete with biggies by bringing in new technologies to its products. Sanyo being a Panasonic brand and reasonable priced is getting a lot of attention these days. Energy efficiency wise Vu and Sanyo both have good products. Intex is also not too bad in terms of efficiency though. However, here are a couple of TVs that you can look at:

Sanyo XT-43S7200F (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2AEr1Ba ) ... a hugely popular TV. Specs wise it is good
Vu 43D6575 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2AkguxO , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/9p4SoTuuuN ) ... Another very good TV. Is SMART TV and has fast refresh rate as well.

Panasonic is a premium brand and thus getting a slightly higher end TV is difficult in your budget. But you can still look at Panasonic TH-40E400D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2AXtdGm , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/E3ljA!NNNN )

76

Hi Abhishek,
I am looking to buy a LG 43inch Full HD tv in the price range of 40-50K,but iam confused with the different models.Could you please elaborate the different options available in LG smart TVs like basic smart,semi smart and full smart ?
Also please suggest few good LG TV model in the mentioned price range .
Thank you

77
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Rajesh,

TVs are either SMART or they are not SMART. LG does not have Semi SMART TV. In your price range, these two TVs would be really good:

LG 43LJ617T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2fMWn2y , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/z5ti3TuuuN ) .... great TV with Color Remaster Engine for better color reproduction and good picture quality. It is a SMART TV with Web OS 3.0 which is a great OS. It has a Magic remote that can work with voice commands.

LG 43LJ554T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2wGWM9r , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/H6ympTuuuN ) .... another good TV with Color Remaster Engine and good picture quality. This TV is also a SMART TV.

If you want a magic remote then the TV above would be better, else the 2nd one is also a great TV.

78

Hi Abhishek,

I wish to purchase 32inch LED TV, max budget is Rs 25K. Kindly advise on below queries:

1) Shopkeeper told me that for 32 inch TV, Full HD vs HD Ready does not make a difference since screen size is small. The difference is only visible in 40 inch & above. Is this correct or will there be a notable difference for 32 inch too?

2) If I buy non-smart TV and connect chromecast or fire stick, will I get most features of a smart TV? I mainly need to: cast my mobile screen, view photos & play songs from mobile, watch youtube/netflix/amazon via wi-fi.

3) Many TVs have only 1 USB port. Can you think of some situation where I'll need to use 2 USB ports simultaneously?

4) I am confused between these 2 models: Samsung UA32m4010, LG 32LJ542D, what do u suggest?
I am also getting Panasonic 32ES500D in 25K. Its a smart TV but is it better than these models in terms of picture quality?
Also, how do these compare with VU 32 inch models in terms of viewing experience?

5) Almost all TVs I saw have only 1-3 star energy rating. Only above Samsung model has 5 star. Do energy ratings not make much difference for TVs? Generally my household uses TV for 4-5 hrs per day.

Thanks in advance and sorry for so many queries, it's bcoz this is the first time I am buying an LED TV.

79
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vaibz,

Here is my response:

1) FHD and HD Ready actually does not make any difference in 32 inch. So the shopkeepers are right on this.

2) A chromecase or a firestick can manage everything that you want from a SMART TV. And all the features that you have mentioned. So it is not necessary to buy a SMART TV.

3) I cannot visualize any scenario because personally I have never ever used the USB port on my TV. Cromecast/Firestick can manage every possible scenario as the movies can be stored on phone and casted.

4) I think Panasonic 32ES500D would be the best in terms of picture quality among all the models that you have listed. It has hexa chroma drive which will give it fantastic colors. The refresh rate is also very fast. So this will have the best picture quality

5) A BEE 3 star rated 32 inch TV will have annual electricity consumption of 67 units and that of 5 star would be 56 units. The difference would be about 10-11 units in a year. At Rs 5-6 per unit, that comes to Rs 50-60 per year.

80

Thanks for a very complete reply!

The Panasonic 32ES500D costs about 5K more than Samsung UA32m4010 & LG 32LJ542. So I'm wondering whether its worth the cost.

So please can you also give your views about Samsung & LG models above?

1) In the shop, looking at LG 32LJ542 (and also other LG models), I felt that picture has a slight yellowish tinge / look. Now am not sure whether this is good (the colors are warm and hence better) or bad (poor picture quality). What do you feel?

2) The strange thing about Samsung UA32m4010 is that I could not find this model's specifications anywhere online. Even Samsung customer care replied to my email saying they dont have its details available (but the model no. is correct!). I like this one for 21K, but don't want to go purely by the shopkeeper's oral info. Do you know anything about this model?

3) I have never used a Smart TV. So if I go for Panasonic 32ES500D, do you think Smart TV interface can be easily operated by a 68 yr old (my mom!)? I just don't want her to have any trouble with a basic appliance like TV. To get some perspective, she is able to operate an Android smartphone :)

81
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vaibz,

Samsung 32M4010 is showing up on Samsung UK website and that too in support mode. In India, there is 32M4000 and 32M4100. I do not have any data on this model.

LG 32LJ542 is also a good model and I think WebOS from LG is much more intuitive and user-friendly. The colour can be adjusted by changing the settings. Check its working using a remote and see if you can alter brightness and colour. LG model also has a colour remaster engine, but the refresh rate may not be high in it. Panasonic model has hexa chroma drive for better color and faster refresh rate. My home screen in Panasonic is good, but then LG's WebOS would be easier to use. If you are planning to buy it for your Mom, then I think LG model would be a better choice.

82

Hi Abhishek,
Finally I have zeroed down upon LG 32" Smart TV 32lj573d. Its picutre quality is good and has all basic smart TV features. Let me know if you have any comments about this model.

I am getting this at good price from Amazon (http://amzn.in/gnUNZvG), sold by Cloudtail & fulfilled by Amazon . But I have never purchased a major electronic appliance online. So I am concerned about after sales service. Do you think I should go ahead with Amazon? Or local shop will be more reliable? Shop v/s Amazon price difference is 2.5K.

83
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vaibz,

Usually you will not have any problem when you purchase from Cloudtail on Amazon or WS Retail on Flipkart. Cloudtail is Amazon's own retail arm and is not a third party seller. Same is with WS Retail, which is Flipkart's own retail arm. Also there are some brands that do not sell directly on e-commerce platforms and some that sell directly. LG sells directly and thus there should be no problem with support. You can get service from any LG authorised service center in your city. In fact you can call up LG and get the details before buying. However, if you feel more comfortable buying offline, then you may go ahead with that as well. I think 2.5K will not be worth more than your comfort and assurance.

84

And Abhishek Ji,

DURABILITY, BUILT QUALITY & post sales Service wise how is Panasonic brand OR
Which is the good brand in consideration of above parmentiers

85
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Panasonic is one of the premium brands and is a great brand. As mentioned above in this page, Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic are premium brands with best technology.

86

Hi Abhishek Ji,
Need small information,
LED Vs LCD
IPS Vs VA
4K Vs FHD

which one is good for eyes, which gives less strain on eyes...

87
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Vinod,

Strain on the eyes will be the same if brightness is high. You can always reduce the brightness if you want to reduce eye strain. Or you can put a blue light filter on your TV (however, I am not sure if you can get a big sized blue light filter for a TV in India, there are some available for laptop computers). Well having said that, here is response to your points:

1) Both LED TV and LCD TV have a LCD screen. LED TV uses LED lights as backlight and LCD screen for display. Old LCD TVs used regular bulbs for backlight. LEDs are more energy efficient and actually you will not get regular LCD TV in market now as most TVs are LED TVs only.

2) IPS and VA have their own pros and cons. IPS is durable, bright and has wider viewing angle. But I think VA looks better in terms of picture quality.

3) 4K is certainly better as compared to FHD as it has more "pixels" and thus can show clearer picture.

88

Hi Abhishek Ji,
Thank you for quick reply. .
So kindly advise how is Panasonic 40DX650D model. .I mean picture quality, durability, built quality wise. .
Or else please suggest me some good model better than the above mentioned. ..

I IMMENSELY value your advise and already I've bought some appliances based on your advise. ..

Regards

89
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Vinod,

At 40 inch Full HD and Ultra HD will not make a whole lot of difference. 40 inch is the starting size for UHD, so you may see some difference only if you try hard to compare.

Also it will be easier to give you a better model if you provide a budget, because price of TVs range from 20K to 20 lakhs. And obviously the ones costing 20 lakhs have fantastic specifications. If you just ask for a better model then I can suggest the one costing 20 lakhs as well.

Now I am assuming that you are looking for a 40 inch UHD (although it would be better if you specify your requirements). In that case you can look at these 40 inch UHDs:

Samsung 40KU6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2jbhlql )
even Samsung 40MU6100 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kj1IAv )

these would be better TVs (in terms of picture quality). The Panasonic model you have listed is great for gaming (in case you need it only for gaming).

90

Abhishek Ji,
Kindly advise

91
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I already replied to you in the morning. It should be there in your email (may be in SPAM box). Here is the reply again:

I think LG 43LJ554T (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0RZYJ!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kkoS5D ) would be the best TV in your budget. It has great picture quality. It has good refresh rate (even for games). It has WebOS, so it is smart. It has IPS. However, it is Full HD. But still it is great.

You may even look at Panasonic TH-43E460D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0eA2V!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2C1VysI ) and Vu 43D6575 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0er4k!NNNN ). But the LG model above would be the best with Panasonic model being close enough (as it does not have SMART features).

92

Hi Abhishek Ji,
What is the difference between LG 43LJ554T & 43LJ617T,

Out of the above two models which one is the Best as per my requirements...
You advised me to go for 1st one but I'm second one at very good price..

And also LG 43LJ523T

PLEASE ADVISE THE BEST ONE

93

So Abhishek Ji,

Can I go for LG LJ617T model without any doubts...

Really I'm getting at an best price..
Kindly advise

94
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Yes you can go for LJ617T without any doubt.

95
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Technical Specifications of 43LJ554T & 43LJ617T are exactly the same. The only difference is that 43LJ617T has a magic remote which can understand voice command. Otherwise rest all is the same. You can go for any one of the two. LG 43LJ523T is not as good.

96

Abhishek Ji,
Can I go for LG 43LJ617T model workout any doubts,
Except that remote otherwise it is meeting all the qualities of the 43LJ554T model suggested by you right..
Kindly suggest...

97
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can certainly go for the model.

98

Sir,
My LG dealer friend gave me LG 43LH 576T as alternative model instead of LG 43LJ617T.... NEED your ADVICE

which is the best one out of the three models I.e 43LJ554T, 43LH576T & 43LJ617T
your advice is more important
Regards
Vinod

99
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

43LH576T is a highly popular BEE 5 star rated TV. The user feedback for it is fantastic. It is also BEE 5 star rated TV, so its electricity consumption is low. However, if I look at specs from a picture quality perspective, I think the other two models you have mentioned are better. And 617T additionally has magic remote. 43LJ554T and 43LJ617T are newer models. And thus the user feedback on these TVs are less. But their specs are better.

100

Abhishek sir,
I do not have much knowledge about TVS
One of my friend bought above panasonic model and advised me based on his experience. .
But my requirements are Picture Quality, Durability, Built quality & post sales service. .
Prefered size 43" or 40"
If IPS panel is good then include it in my requirements,
If 4K is good then include it & If cromcast / firestic is manages smart TV requirements then it's okay I don't require it,

Gaming is not mandatory but I've a growing son..sometime someday he may require it,

So I request advice me one best model from any brand which you believe in within the budget of Rs:45000.l

101
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think LG 43LJ554T (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0RZYJ!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kkoS5D ) would be the best TV in your budget. It has great picture quality. It has good refresh rate (even for games). It has WebOS, so it is smart. It has IPS. However, it is Full HD. But still it is great.

You may even look at Panasonic TH-43E460D (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0eA2V!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2C1VysI ) and Vu 43D6575 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0er4k!NNNN ). But the LG model above would be the best with Panasonic model being close enough (as it does not have SMART features).

102

I am looking forward to buy TV above 55 inch with good picture quality. My budget is 40K-70K . Brand which I might choose from is : Sony, LG, Panasonic (not sure about service), VU or any other which have a good service centre in Indore. I do have Amazon fire tv stick, so not really looking forward to spend more getting a smart TV, but still I would prefer smart tv under budget or atleast wifi feature, bluetooth connectivity, IPS panel, good sound. Also I am confused should I get a projector (30K - 50K) or TV ? My usage would be playing games, videos on youtube & apps from fire tv stick. Is importing Xiaomi MI TV worth ? some are selling on Ebay (Is it legal ?)

103
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vikky,

I doubt that you can get such a TV from Sony, LG or Panasonic in your budget. I think Vu would be the best for you and you can look at the Iconium series from Vu. You can check Vu 55UH7545 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2AdY68Z ) ... I think this will be the best choice for you. Also, most TVs of that size are by default SMART TV (in fact brands like Sony do not make non-SMART TV these days). So I think this will be the best choice for you.

As for buying from eBay, I would personally be not very comfortable in doing the same but it is your choice. Flipkart and Amazon (and to some extent Snapdeal) are good for e-commerce buying.

104

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for the quick response.
I was expecting answer for projector v TV as well.

If I am going for TV - I have come down to just two options - either VU or Sony
Sony is expensive but would it worth going for 3D LED TV ?
VU - there are lots of TV on flipkart as compared to Amazon - So under VU - 4K iconium vs 4K pixellight which is better ?
As I mentioned i have Amazon fire stick - can i go with this model no. LED-55K160GAU on flipkart or 55UH8475 with a refresh rate of 120hz or LTDN55XT780XWAU3D_HDR
plz do suggest.
Thanks

105
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vikky,

In a projector, the light that you see is a reflection from a surface. Whereas in case of TV the light that you see is directly from source. This means that a TV will look much brighter and even in case there is bright background light, you will be able to see the content. So TV will certainly be better. Not all Sony TVs are 3D TVs. But a 55 inch TV will cost at least 1.2 lakhs. It will certainly have far better picture quality as compared to Vu. But then you pay a premium for better quality and brand.

LED-55K160GAU is a Full HD TV whereas the model I suggested is a UHD. Full HD will not look really great in 55 inches. A UHD 55 inch will look far better.

55UH8475 again is Full HD and UHD will look better.

Vu LTDN55XT780XWAU3D_HDR (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/iRohC!NNNN ) is a far better model and actually better than the one I suggested. It has HDR for better contrast, so its picture quality will be much better. I had a wrong link for it in my database which is why it was showing me out of stock on Flipkart.

106

Hi Abhishek,

As I also mentioned :

So under VU - 4K iconium vs 4K pixellight which is better ?
As I mentioned i have Amazon fire stick - can i go with this model (non smart) no. LED-55K160GAU on flipkart or 55UH8475 with a refresh rate of 120hz . How much difference do you think would be between this cheapest model vs 4K HD

107

Oh sorry I missed HD n UHD you were referring .

Amazon link which you shared before is Iconium TV n Flipkart was one is latest Pixellight
I can see picture quality might be better in latest pixelight model, but I guess on VUTVs.com when we compare Iconium have some more added feature.

Hi Vikky,

As you already have an Amazon Firestick, I do not think the other smart features are very important. A better picture quality would be better to have. Also, Pixelight is a Smart TV, so it will have PC Cast and Smart TV browser (even though it is not mentioned, but these are basic SMART TV features). It may not have micro SD storage, but you can always connect a USB drive to get storage. And on top of it, if you have Amazon Firestick, you can always use cloud storage. So I do not think those features really make a difference. As for Bluetooth, it is really up to you if you really want it. You miss a major picture quality update (HDR, Wide Color Gamut, Dolby Sound, etc) which are major things that one desires from a TV for those features which can be achieved using other devices.

109

features like micro sd storage, pc cast, vu smart tv browser, is available on Iconium model but can't see it mentioned for pixellight model on VU site . But on flipkart Q n A people are mentioning that it has anycast feature which will screen mirror pc, if no vu smart browser, opera browser is enought. No internal storage in Pixellight. Also I miss bluetooth connectivity, do you know any cheap bluetooth transmitter that can connect multiple devices ?

Hi Colin,

The best TV that I could find in your requirements and budget is LG 49UJ752T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2wGUln5 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/ZD91GTuuuN ). This TV has HDR with Dolby Vision technology for good contrast, Nano Cell Display for wider color range, Fast refresh rate for better clarity of fast moving scenes and WebOS is one of the best OS for TV. So this is a good choice. If you want 55 inch then LG 55UJ632T would fit in your budget. Again a good TV but the 49 inch model is better.

Sony models are bit more expensive for a similar technology, so I would suggest that you look at these LG models.

112

Thank you.
I was looking at the same model too.

What is the difference between 49SJ800T and 49UJ752T ??

From my research I find that these models are the similar range in terms of specs.
Sony KD-49X9000E - Samsung 49MU7000 - Lg 49SJ800T
Sony ? - Samsung - ? Lg - 49UJ752T

From all your comments below I've gathered that Sony has the best picture and sound quality with lg coming in second but not too far away with a more reasonable price tag.
whats your take on Samsung?
Thanks again.

113
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

LG 49SJ800T has Picture Mastering Index (PMI) of 2800 whereas LG 49UJ752T has 2200. Which means that LG 49SJ800T has slightly better image processor and its picture quality would be slightly better.

In terms of picture quality Sony and Samsung are in general the best, however, LG's OLED is a revolutionary technology for picture quality. But the OLEDs are expensive. Samsung has also got in Quantum Dots display which is quite superior. Among the other models that you have listed, I think Sony KD-49X9000E would be comparable to Lg 49SJ800T and these would be the best models. In Samsung, 49KS7000 would be a really good model. LG is most reasonable in price among the three.

114

Dear Abhishek,
I would like to have your views on Samsung KS7000 and Sony X9000E. Which is better. KS7000 available at discounted price. I am looking for 49in. Any better suggestion.

115
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ajay,

It is a very close comparison as both the models are fantastic. Both have superior technology (HDR + Wide Color Gamut + Fast Refresh Rate). Samsung model has Quantum Dot technology for wide color gamut which is their latest superior technology for getting better colors. Picture engine wise both Samsung and Sony are quite close, so if you are getting KS7000 at a better price, I think I would suggest you to go for Samsung KS7000.

116

Thank Abhishekji,
Booked KS7000 49 in.

Thanks again for valuable suggestion.

117

Hi I am planning to buy a 49/50 inch to. My budget is 37-45 which is the best tv for me in terms of picture quality, services and price.

118
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think Sanyo, Vu or Micromax would be good in your budget. You can check these:

Hello Abhishek,
I'm looking for a 40-43" FHD LED TV in the price range of under 30k.
After doing bit of research I've shortlisted below. Could you please share your thoughts and suggestions.
1. Panasonic TH-40ES500D
2. LG 43LJ5223T
3. Onida 43FIS
4. Vu 43D6545
5. Philips 43PFL4351/V7
I've heard good reviews about Vu and had almost made my mind to go for it cost wise but then thought of stretching the budget bit if I can get some better known brands.
If you have got any other models also under 30k then pls let me know.

Thanks,
Ashish

120
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ashish,

If you are not looking for advanced technology for contrast and colour in your TV, then even a Vu works out great. But if you are looking for better picture quality with advanced technology for contrast and colour, then Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic are better brands. However, a lot depends on how picky you are about picture quality. For most of the people in this world, it would not matter much. It's like, if you want the best sound, the brands like Bose offer fantastic sound quality. But then for a lot of people it does not matter much and decent sound quality is good enough.

Among the models you have listed, I think Panasonic TH-40ES500D would have the best picture quality.

121

Hello Abhishek,
I'm confused between Panasonic TH-40ES500D and Panasonic TH-43E460D now. ES500D is a smart TV but I think it lacks IPS panel. The Panasonic website states panel type as LED LCD for ES500D whereas for other model mostly 43" it clearly mentions IPS, below are the links for specs of both.
https://www.panasonic.com/in/consumer/home-entertainment/televisions/Smart-TV/th-40es500d.specs.html
https://www.panasonic.com/in/consumer/home-entertainment/televisions/LED-TV/th-43e460d.specs.html

Can you pls recommend the best among these? I'm not interested in smart features though, I'm preferably looking to go for model with Hexa Chroma Drive and not Vivid Digital Pro. Do you think there is much difference between the two technologies? Do we have any other major advantage of IPS panel apart from viewing angle? which is more durable?

Thanks in Advance!!

122
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ashish,

If a model has IPS, the brand will mention IPS on it. If Panasonic does not mention IPS in the specs, then it is not a model with IPS panel.

IPS panels have better viewing angle and it is tougher (like your mobile phone screen as most mobile phones use IPS panels). Also when you touch the screen there won't be ripples seen on IPS. However, picture quality, in general, can be produced better on a VA panel and that is why Sony and Samsung have not moved to IPS. VA panels have better control on light and thus contrasts on VA panel are far better. So blacks will be darker and whites will be bright. Whereas IPS is more on a brighter side (the darks may not be as good as VA panels). As for durability, I guess IPS would be slightly better in that.

Hexa Chroma Drive is latest technology from Panasonic and certainly better than Vivide Digital Pro. It has wider color pallet.

If you are looking for IPS Panel + Hexa Chroma Drive + Fast refresh rate then you can look at Panasonic TH-43ES630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2wGNomh , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/TfXXVTuuuN ) or even Panasonic TH-43DS630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rEGVbC , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kGzsdTuuuN ) .... both have better refresh rate (with ES630 being better) and have hexa chroma drive with IPS.

Between the two models you have listed, my personal opinion would be that Panasonic TH-40ES500D would look better.

123

Thanks for suggestion Abhishek, I would come back once I've purchased a TV to share the feedback.

124

Hi Sir,
Your views on sony 49X9000E please. Any comparable other recommendation.

125
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think it is a fantastic TV. Sony KD-49X9000E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2j6wgEI , http://fkrt.it/t0zQ2!NNNN ) has 4K HDR (for super contrast), Triluminous Display (for wide color gamut), 100 Hz refresh rate (which is great for fast moving action scene). And sony's 4K XReality Pro processor is also fantastic. I think it is a great TV.

For comparable TVs, you can look at these:

Samsung 49MU7000 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kGB4RA , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/wR2O8!NNNN )
LG 49UJ752T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2wGUln5 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/tug2Q!NNNN )

but I think Sony model is fantastic.

126

Refresh rate for both suggested models is 60 Hz compare to 100hz in sony. Also Sony has directlit led against edge lit for other two. How does it make a difference.

127
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

A 100 Hz in sony will look better when you watch a fast moving action scene or sports. Edge lit TVs are thinner as compared to direct lit. However, direct lit TVs are bright all across, but edge lit are brighter in the corner and slightly darker at the center.

128

hi abhishek....

how would you compare a "standard tv + device like amazon fire stick "against a smart tv ?

what will you suggest for a 40' -43' full hd standard tv and a smart tv of similar sizes ?

how is "Panasonic 108 cm (43 inches) Viera Shinobi , super bright TH-43E460D Full HD LED TV" , its not a smart tv?

129
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

By the way it is difficult to compare when you give just one model, because there is no reference to compare. Hands down every TV that sells in market works (it is not that it will fail the day you buy it) .... but then a comparison is ideal when there is a reference to compare. Otherwise every TV is a good TV. A very important thing to know is what you want from the TV.

130
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Well Amazon fire stick is a great product, however, if you go for a TV with LG WebOS, or Samsung Smart Hub, or Android or even Panasonic MyHome, I think they are good enough.

Usually these days most advanced models (with better technology for picture quality and sound) usually come with OS and are SMART TV. So if you want a technically advanced model, then it will have SMART by default. In fact Sony has stopped making non SMART TV altogether.

Panasonic TH-43E460D is a good TV. It has hexa chroma drive for better color pallet, dot noise reduction, subwoofer for better sound. the only place it can lack is on refresh rate (has normal refresh rate) ... but if you watch regular TV, this would not matter much. Also IPS Super bright panel will have good brightness, but a TV with HDR will have fantastic contrast, but this one does not have it. But still it will have good picture quality than most regular TVs. And yes, it is not SMART TV.

131

hello man,
can you help me out with the two options that i have in mind.... LG 108 cm (43) Full HD Smart LED TV 43LH576T

LG 108 cm (43) Full HD Smart LED TV 43LH576T & Sony 101.4 cm (40 inches) KLV-40W672E Full HD LED Smart TV...
what should i go for ?

132
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Sony KLV-40W672E is a better TV in terms of picture quality and sound. You can go for it.

133

Hi Abhishek.
I am looking 32 inches smart LED TV of around 35K price Could you please suggest best Smart LED TV in this range ?

134
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at these:

Panasonic TH-32ES500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2y3450n ) .... this would be the best TV as it has hexa chroma drive for wide color gamut and also has good refresh rate.
Sony KLV-32W672E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t1lBet , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/nmiAx!NNNN )
Samsung 32K5570 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2uoARXY , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/ep4l8!NNNN)
LG 32LH604T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZ875L , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xGPWr!NNNN )

135

Hi abhishek. The Panasonic led tv you have mentioned is HD ready. Is there any Panasonic model with same features but with full HD.

Also suggest me one model to choose from the remaining 3 options of Sony, Samsung and LG you have provided.

136
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anil,

You can go for the Sony model in that case.

137

hi sir,

I would like to buy 40" LED TV. Please suggest a good TV , which should be rugged as my kids can break it with toys. One TV already damaged by my child by throughing a ball on to the screen. Thank you

138
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

What is your budget for the TV? Look for IPS panel. LG and Panasonic are premium brands that have IPS panel.

139

Hi sir, Im vinay from hyderabad, in my hall the viewing distance is 10 to 12 feet approx, I want to buy 43 to 55 inch tv. which tv is better in this distance ? my budget is upto 90k .How is LG 43/55 UJ632T ? Please suggest equilavalent or better models in LG, SONY, Samsung, panasonic and other brands also in this price range. And please tell the diference between LG IPS panels and panels used by sony and suggest which were better.

140
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vinay,

At 10-12 ft both 43 inch and 55 inch will look fine. Sony and Samsung use VA panel and LG uses IPS. IPS is quite bright and provides a wider viewing angle. It is also tough, so a bit durable. But brightness is not always good as you need better contrast and color representation. And Sony and Samsung have better picture engine to have better color presentation. Their viewing angle may be less, but if you plan to sit in front of the TV and watch, then you do not need wide viewing angle.

In your budget, the best TV that I could find is Panasonic TH-49EX600D ..... it is a 4K TV with Hexa Chroma drive for wide color gamut and HDR for better contrast. It will have fantastic picture quality. I could find it in your budget on TataCliq. But all other portals have it beyond your range.

LG 5UJ632T (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/qBajz!NNNN ), is also a great model. It also has HDR and Color remaster engine for better color representation.

In Sony, you can look at two TVs:

KDL-50W950D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t188Di , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KS1iRTuuuN ) .... it has Triluminous display for better colors, Better sound system and refresh rate and Android ... but no HDR .. and is also a Full HD TV.

KD-49X7500E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2yv9ddb , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/LeoV4TuuuN ) .... it has HDR for better contrast, UHD, Android .... but sound is normal, refresh rate is normal and no wide color gamut for wider color range.

I think if you can get the Panasonic model mentioned above, then that would be the best .... else LG model is also good.

141

Planning to buy today Waiting for your reply sir

142

Thank you sir for your valuable suggestion.Does the LG and Panasonic models have good refresh rate?
Sir please suggest models in 43 inches with 4k resolution and good picture quality,hdr and all other features.

143

Waiting for your valuable reply sir

144
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

My Apologies. Last two days have been hectic with family and celebrations. You can look at these 43 inch TVs:

LG 43UJ752T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2xT6r1T , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/sqh!WTuuuN ) ... brilliant TV with Nano Cell Display for wide color gamut, Active HDR and Dolby VIsion make picture quality amazing. And WebOS is a great OS.

Sony KD-43X8300D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ryniiq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xfBQk!NNNN ) ....Android UHD TV with Triluminous Display for Wide Color Gamut, 4K HDR and super fast refresh ratewill give blur free image with great colors and picture quality.

Sony KD-43X8200E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2yw71ly , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/b8i90!NNNN ) .... Android UHD TV with Triluminous Display for Wide Color Gamut, 4K HDR and Superior sound ... refresh rate is basic .... but if you do not watch fast moving action scenes, then it works awesome.

Any of these 3 would be awesome buy. The LG model has great technology.

Hi.
This is sunil from Bangalore, Im looking tv for my hometown.. and
Yesterday i visited Girias store (bangalore) i hv seen SONY 24P413D model and i liked it, i just need 24" tv bcz im taking it for my hometown and there is a just small hall (12X10) so according to me 24" size is perfect. The price is 16999/- but im getting it for just 14999/- and a free 16GB SONY pendrive..
(This same tv in SONY Centre after discount 15999/-)
But my younger brother suggested me to go with bigger size like 29" or 32", So... bigger size means i need to spend more money on it. If i get SONY 29" around 20K then surely ill go for it. But in that store (Girias) 29" not available. And my brother suggested me that look other brands around 20000/- many tv's are available with 29-32" so plz suggest me get BEST, WORTH & DURABLE tv for my home town.. (i dont buy tv from online so plz dnt post link)

146
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sunil,

You can get 32 inch models in LG, Panasonic or even in Samsung (rare case) in your budget. However, most of ouor pricing data is based on information online, so I cannot tell you a single model which will surely come in your budget (you will have to check at the stores for the same). You can look for these TVs:

LG 32LJ523D
LG 32LJ522D
Panasonic TH-32D400D
LG 32LH512A
LG 32LH516A
Panasonic TH-32C350DX
