Best 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.

Hello,

Please do a comparison analysis in the following models,

Lg 49sj80 and uj75
Sony 49X7002e

2
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Saurabh,

I already compared 49SJ80 and UJ75 for you in my previous message. Sony KD-49X7002E does not have technology for Wide color gamut. Sony models with WCG have Triluminous Display. This one does not have it. Also refresh rate is basic. So I think 49SJ80 and UJ75 are certainly better.

3

Hi Team,

I have question about the new TV brand Ridaex (Indian company brand).
On quora I see so many positive responses, so are they credible and do these TV really so good as the hype is?

How are they as compared to Micromax or VU? Or do you think Samsung, LG, Sony are better to put money on?

4

Hi,

Need your advice.
I am planning to buy one 49 inches 4K LED.
I am inclined towards Samsung and LG.
1. Please compare LG uj63, uj 75 and SJ 80.
2. Is it worth spending double the amount on Sj 80 over uj63.
3. Where does Samsung's 6100 and 6470 stands against LG models.
4. Any other comparable model you would suggest.

Thanks

Hi Saurabh,

Two main things (or technologies) are dominating picture technology all over the world today: 1) Wide color gamut ... which is a display's ability to show more vibrant colors and a larger shade pallet. So a TV that can show more shades of blue or red or yellow is better. 2) Better contrast with HDR or high dynamic range. Contrast is a TV's ability to show range of blacks and whites. Or shades of black and white to simplify it. It helps differentiate a character if the background is dark. Imagine watching a batman movie and batman is standing in a dark street. His dress is black but you should be able to differentiate the border of his dress even in dark background. HDR has wider contrast.

Third thing that impacts picture quality is the refresh rate o how quickly the frames change. This helps reducing blur in fast moving action scenes.

Now SJ80 and UJ75 both come with Nano Cell Display technology for Wide Color Gamut. Both of them also have Active HDR and Dolby Vision for better contrast. Although LG has not mentioned the refresh rate, but the PMI (or Picture Mastering index LG uses to denote picture quality) is slipghly less for UJ75, so I assume that it may have slightly slower refresh rate (because the WCG and Contrast technologies are similar). But then UJ63 does not have WCG (Wide Color Gamut) technology. It does have HDR but then does not have Dolby Vision technology. So SJ80 will certainly have the best picture quality. Is it worth spending money on it? Depends on how good a connoisseur of picture quality you are. Many people get satisfied with cheaper UHD TVs of lesser brands as well. If you are someone who like to have the best experience, then SJ80 is certainly worth. And it is actually the best 49 inch UHD TV from LG.

The two models from Samsung that you have listed are better than UJ63 because 6470 has Active Crystal Color (Samsung's technology for WCG) and 6100 has Purcolor (which is Samsung's older technology for WCG). But Samsung's latest technology for WCG is Quantum Dot. Both these TVs have HDR and good refresh rate, but then SJ80 is certainly the best among all you have listed.

All depends on what you want. If you want the best then go for SJ80. If you have a budget constraint, then a good TV can be filtered out.

Hello Mr.Abhishek,

I request your suggestions to choose one of the following from the performance and pricing/budget (within Rs 30k). I am looking at Non-Smart TV and adding Amazon TV Firestick to it when needed.

Vu 43 inch FHD LED TV, IPS panel, 2 HDMI + 2 USB, Audio 20w, 60Hz, Model 43D6545, Rs. 23k on Flipkart

Sanyo NXT 43 inch FHD LED TV, IPS panel, 3 HDMI + 2 USB, Audio 20w, 60Hz, Model XT-43S7200F, Rs. 25k on Flipkart

Sanyo 43 inch FHD LED TV, IPS panel, 2 HDMI + 2 USB, Audio 20w, 60Hz, Model XT-43S7100F, Rs. 23k on Amazon (2k cheaper than the new model on Flipkart, which has one HDMI extra)

Panasonic 43 inch FHD LED TV, IPS panel, 2 HDMI + 1 USB, Audio 35w, 200Hz BMR, Model TH-43E640D, Rs.31k on both Flipkart & Amazon...looks better deal, but it has only one USB and how does it compare to Sanyo 43 inch, which is cheaper by about Rs.6k to 8k?

Panasonic 40 inch Viera FHD LED TV, IPS panel, 2 HDMI +1 USB, Audio 10w?, 200Hz BMR, Model TH-40E400D, Rs.27k on Amazon. It has only one USB. How does it compare to Sanyo 43 inch which is cheaper by about Rs. 2k to 4k?

I understand from your earlier responses that it is very unlikely that any of the above models support AC3 audio format.

Also, please let me know which is better between Vu 43 inch 43D6545 (IPS and A+grade panel) and Sanyo 43 inch NXT XT43S7200F or XT43S7100F?

Thank you

Hi Abhijit,

The first query that you made on this platform about TV was on 18th May. It has been more than 4 months! Please do not get so confused and please take a decision!! If I have to pick one model among all the ones that you have listed, go for Panasonic TH-43E460D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2fgef1G , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/jWBA4TuuuN ) .... it is the best model in your list. It has Hexa Chroma Drive for wide color gamut. It will have good picture quality. Do not worry too much about AC3 audio format. But please take a decision!

8

Hello Mr.Abhishek,

Thanks for your response. Based on your earlier suggestion, Panasonic Smart TV DS500D was already purchased at good deal. It's not available at that price now. When my friend wanted to choose 43 inch Vu D6545 or Sanyo NXT on limited budget, he came across Panasonic TH-43E460D at Rs.31k. Hence sought your suggestion again.

9
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

HI Abhijit,

My apologies. The questions looked similar and models looked similar, so I thought you were not able to decide. Panasonic TH-43E460D is certainly a fantastic TV in that budget.

10

Dear, I am planning to buy a non smart full HD LED 40 to 43 Inch tv , I am confused between Samsung and Sony,
My budget is 42000 INR , I need best picture quality and sound . SONY BRAVIA KLV 40R352D, SONY BRAVIA KLV 40R352E ,Samsung 43M5100 FULL HD LED TV ,SAMSUNG 43" 43M5100 FULL HD LED . Also tell me is there any viewing difference between 40 and 43 inch.

11
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Puneet,

I think Samsung 40M5100 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2vOiOe3 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eKOX~!NNNN ) is the best in terms of picture quality and sound. For picture quality it has Wide Color Enhancer for wider color gamut, Clean View technology to reduce digital noise and in general Samsung's picture engine is good. It also has a 20 W RMS audio output. Both the Sony TVs have 10W RMS sound output, so sound will be less. Sony's picture engine is good, and they have digital noise reduction as well, but then these two models do not have any technology for wider color gamut. The M series from Samsung is latest 2017 series. You may not get too many reviews for it (as compared to others), but the technology is quite good in M5100. 43M5100 may go beyond your budget. 43 inch TV will obviously look slightly bigger, but other than size, I do not see any other difference in viewing among the two.

12

Hi,
I am inclined to purchase Panasonic LED TV TH-43E460D. can you pls give me feedback abt pros and cons. Tv mainly used for parents to watch routine stuff . No much HD/gaming/sports. Need reliabilty,good picture quality(more of sd stuff in cable) n decent sound.

13
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Preetham,

The pros are:

1) It has hexa chroma drive which will get you wide color gamut. So colors would be vibrant.
2) It is Panasonic which is one of the premium brands with good picture engine.
3) It has IPS superbright panel which will look good from wider angles as well and will be durable.
4) It has subwoofer for good sound.

Cons are:
1) It does not have HDR for wider contrast. Usually contrast impacts picture quality quite a lot.
2) It has basic refresh rate, so fast action scenes may have some blurr (not irritating though).
3) It is not a SMART TV.
4) Hexa Chroma Drive is basic. Panasonic has a better version called Hexa Chroma Drive Pro which is better.

14

Thanks a lot for your reply.
Could you suggest any other suitable models available for my listed requirements .

15
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

What is your budget and what are the sizes that you are looking at?

16

i am looking at 40-43" size and budget is within 35k

17

and requirement is non smart tv now

18
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Preetham,

Panasonic LED TV TH-43E460D is not a SMART TV. But it has good specs in your budget. Specially with hexa croma drive, it will have very vibrant colors. And IPS superbright panel gets good contrast.

19
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think your choice of model Panasonic TH-43E460D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2fgef1G , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/jWBA4TuuuN ) is the best in your budget.

20

Hi Abhishek,
My budget is 40k-50K and I am looking for future proof (atleast 5-6 years) Smart TV. After my research I come down to following features:
1. Full HD (as 4k content is still not available much in India)
2. Subwoofer (as LED tv have low speaker)
3. Android or Roku (as there I can get the most of free content and apps)
4. Size between 40 - 50 inchs (as it will be placed in normal living hall with viewing distance 6-7 fts)

Please advice best model online on Flipkart/Amazon. Also what other factors I should consider?

21
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Mayank,

Roku, Amazon Fire Stick or Chromecast can be connected to any TV using the HDMI port. Android is mostly available in High end Sony TVs that are expensive. You can get the best picture quality in Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic. Based on your budget, the best TV (in terms of picture quality and subwoofer) that you can get would be 40 inch. Here are some models you can look at:

LG 43LJ548T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2xibBk5 ) ... I think this is the best model for you as it has subwoofer, for wide color gamut it has LG's color master engine. It's WebOS is also quite good and had good content (although you can always connect a Roku to it). It is a 2017 model with good specs in general.

Sony KLV-40W562D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e3x2Lt , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5H30gTuuuN ) ... Sony in general has good picture quality. This TV also has subwoofer. But the OS is not Android. The refresh rate in this TV is basic. But good enough to see standard TV.

Panasonic TH-40ES500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2virg3D ) .... This TV has great picture quality ... it has Panasonic's Hexa Croma Drive for wide color gamut .... It's refresh rate is also good. But this TV does not have subwoofer. Even the OS is My Home screen ( a modified firefox).

You will have to connect a Roku externally.

22

Thanks Abhishek for the suggestion, really glad to see how quickly I got the response :)
However now I have got one doubt as Android TV in Sony is very costly and WebOs doesn't have much to do. So, I am in dilemma in making a choice from below:

1. Buying LG/Samsung (Full HD and other best specs tv below 40k) + addition android box/roku stick
or
2. Increase my budget little more and buy this set - Sony Bravia-KDL-43W800D with android (it is of 54K on amazon)

What option is best for future? Also I wanted to cut cords i.e. instead of DTH I am planning to get netflix subscription or other online less expensive streaming content.

Is the android TV in sony is mature enough and will it get updated with time?
I have read its little clunky right now, while with streaming box/stick I would get the flexibility to change it over the years.

So should I spend on sony lower end android tv or spend on other brand for TV specs, if so what is the latest and best under 40k rest amount. I will use remaining amount for android box and subscription :P
I can not stretch my overall budget more than 55k in any case.

23
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Mayank,

In my opinion, LG WebOS and Samsung Smart Hub are not bad. In fact I think they are better than Android currently. But it is your choice. In fact even Amazon's Fire Stick is awesome. If you are thinking of Chromecast then please be aware that it works only with a smart phone. You will have to go for a Smart TV box along with it. Netflix subscription is available on most smart platforms.

Also usually TVs with better specifications (in terms of picture and sound quality) usually come with SMART features. So you will not get good choice if you go for non SMART TV. Sony KDL-43W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBvESF , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eW!!d!NNNN ) has better picture quality. But it does not have subwoofer.

Among the two choices you have mentioned above, I think Sony KDL-43W800D would be a better choice for sure.

24

Hi ,
I want to go for 43 inch 4k + smart tv. My budget is 60-70k.
1) whether it would be better to go for 43/49 fullhd and non-smart (with chromecast) given my budget. Viewing distance 7.5 feet.
2) u have mentioned elsewhere in the thread that there would not much difference between uhd and full hd in 43 inches size
3) between samsung 43ku6470 and 43mu6100 which one will u will suggest ? Or any eqvivalent in other brands

25
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Srinivas,

I did reply to your message yesterday. Copying it again:

Hi Srinivas,

UHD in 43 inch is slightly (minutely) better, but certainly not a deal breaker. Also in a budget of 70 K you can easily get a 49 inch Full HD SMART TV. By the way most premium brands olny have SMART TVs beyond a certain range. In fact Sony does not sell any Non SMART TV. And the TVs with better specs are usually SMART TVs. So I do not think you will need a chromecast.

If you want a 49 inch TV then you will have to look at Full HD and you can look at these:

LG 49LJ617T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2xeki1v , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0g9h7!NNNN )
Samsung 49M5570 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2hg7zVJ )
Panasonic 49ES630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2xPSxwG , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/0PKtK!NNNN )

In 43 inch you can get UHD and you can go for Samsung 43KU6470 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2xhohrM ) as it has better color technology (Active Crystal Color) and HDR as well. You can even look at Panasonic TH-43EX600D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2xg0qsn ).... but the Samsung model would be better.

Hii Abhishek, I bought Samsung 32" M4100 yesterday. But Now I came to know the IPS panel technology. So i am worried about my Tv as it has a VA panel. I saw there both Sony & Samsung were not providing IPS in this budget. I wanted a feature loaded TV with Excellent quality which can survive in all conditions as well as best customer support needed. So I should concerned about it or not?

29
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sagar,

IPS panel can give you wider viewing angle. It is especially good if you have a large room. But if you have a small room, then VA panel from Sony or Samsung can generate better contrast and thus a better picture quality. IPS is tough and durable, but if you want better picture quality with better contrast then Sony and Samsung offer better quality.

Hello Abhishek,

Please help to select me a TV for my home. As per your advised, I decided to go for 4K TV. I been to market and compared many brands. I selected following model and if you could help me to decide my decision, would be a great help in this festival.

1. Sony 49X8200E (Re. 1.1L) - Very good pic quality, angel view is very good.
2. Sony 49X9000E (Re. 1.37L) - Over my budget but Excellent pic quality, Angel view not good.
3. Panasonic 49EX600D (Re. 1.17L) - Very good pic quality, Angel view is good, Free item- "Panasonic Urban Audio Wireless Speaker 1700 (W) RMS" Worth of Re. 37K (https://www.panasonic.com/caribbean/consumer/audio-video/urban-audio/sc-ua7.html)
4. LG 49UJ752 (Re. 1.1L)
5. LG 49UJ652 (Re. 84K)
6. LG OLED55C7T (Re. 2.15L): Over my budget but excellent piece.
7. Samsung 49MU7000 (Re. 1.3L) : Excellent pic quality but Angel view not good. Over my budget.

My Req. is Gaming (PS4 Pro), TV shows, Sports, Movie & Youtube and good picture.

Please suggest me anyone even if that is not listed in this list. I need to finalize in this Navratri only.

Thanks !!!

32
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sanjiv,

A lot depends on your budget. One of the model you have listed is an OLED. There is no other TV in your list that can beat an OLED in terms of picture quality. However, you have PS4 as well and LG has not mentioned refresh rate on the specs, but I seriously doubt that such high end TV will have low refresh rate.

Among other models, Sony 49X9000E has clearly mentioned 100 Hz native refresh rate which will be great for your gaming. With Triluminous display and HDR, this will be a great TV. Samsung 49MU700 also has good specs, but as you mentioned, they are over your budget.

Among others, I think Panasonic TH-49EX600D and LG 49UJ752T are great value for money. With good color technology and HDR, these TVs will be quite good. Although the numbers they quote for the refresh rate are quite unclear (as usual). Panasonic has 4K 1500 Hz BMR and LG has PMI 2200 for these two models. Compared to other models from LG and Panasonic, these numbers are good, so I assume that these refresh rate equals to 100 Hz. I think one of these two would be a great choice in your budget. I would prefer an LG for the better SMART TV experience, but then I think you have compared the real picture quality in store. With the attractive gift that you are getting with the Panasonic, that looks like a deal maker.

hi abishek

i have some doubts with the es630 panasonic tv 43" 2017 model that is read on a site like it is a sub part os
what is that subpart called here and also the main thing in the smart is it has to run without bufferring and also
have doubts with the default apps in it whether youtube comes default in it.
es630 and es630d both are same or different model?

can we get any pointer remote control which does not come with this tv package ?

and what about the speed of the web browser since kids watch their favourite cartoons rhymes and other childrens contents often in hd mode through youtube and browser

does this os play all hd contents fast fast in the sense how it loads quickly or not ?

possible to connect wireless mouse and keyboard to the tv?

34
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Raja,

There is just ES630D, there is no separate ES630. And it is an upgrade to old DS630D. The OS in both DS630S and ES630D is the same My Home Screen (which is an update on Firefox OS). Although Panasonic has come out with My Home Screen 2.0 which is a better version, My Home Screen is not bad. You can read user reviews on DS630D on Flipkart: http://fkrt.it/kGYw4TuuuN and Amazon: http://amzn.to/2s7MAsd .... some reviews do mention about their experience with the SMART feature as well. And DS630D is single core processor, while ES630D is dual core (although Quad Core would be fastest ... they are available in Samsung).

35

Hello Abishek,
Can you suggest some TV's with local dimming feature?

36
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Local dimming is for better contrast. And if you want a TV with best contrast then go for a model with HDR (High Dynamic Range). It will have the best contrast. What is your budget and what sized TV are you looking at?

37

In one of your replies in this thread, you have mentioned HDR with Triluminous display (local dimming) is best in picture quality. That is the reason I asked this question.

Screen size preferred is 49. Considering the TV future ready ( 5-10 years) picture quality wise kindly give your opinion on which is good for value?

i) 40-43 inch Full HD with Local dimming feature, Smart TV (micro-dimming, triluminous display)
ii) 49 inch and above with HDR & 4K resolution*.

My budget will be around 80K.

*-Some TV's (sony , panasonic) are offering HDR and local dimming. For better contrast/picture quality both are required are HDR alone is sufficient?

Thanks.

38
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Triluminous display is a color technology which increases shades of color a TV can display. It is not related to contrast. Local Dimming is for contrast and which is where HDR comes in. And HDR is there in many brands (Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic and even Vu).

HDR is high dynamic contrast range. It can be achived by local dimming or other technology. HDR just means a wider range of contrast (blacks and whites). Local dimming dims the led lights behind the part of screen that is displaying black. This makes blacks look darker. So this is a technology. HDR means wide range of black and white (more than most normal TV have). You can say HDR is setting while local dimming is technology.

Similarly Triluminous Display is setting which gives wider color pallet. Panasonic has Hexa Crome Drive that gives wider color pallet. Samsung uses Quantum Dot and LG's OLED gives wider color pallet.

Here are some TVs that you can look at:

Sony KLV-49W772E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rcDQMA , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/52oxXTuuuN ) ... This has a subwoofer as well ... but refresh rate is normal 50 Hz

Panasonic TH-43EX600D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2vOiz2D ) .... 43 inch UHD TV with Hexa Croma Drive for Wide Color Pallet and HDR ... even the refresh rate is high ... so perfect picture quality. But 43 inch.

LG 43UJ632T or 43UJ652T .... again a 43 inch UHD TV with HDR and high PMI which is LG's way of representing better color and clarity.

I think the sony model that I have mentioned would be the best. But then it is Full HD. You can get 43 inch 4K TV in your budget.

Thank you so much abhishek for explaining.

hi abishek
can u just tell me whether panasonic use the firefox os in their 43"es630d model and also is there any difference with the 2016 and 2017 model and what are the drawbacks in firefox os iam asking like is it slow when compared to others or while loading anything it buffers for a long time when compared to others

41
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Raja,

Panasonic currently uses it own Panasonic My Home Screen which is an update on top of Firefox OS. Mozilla stopped working on Firefox OS for TVs in 2015. Since then, Panasonic has taken over and evolved that OS to My Home Screen. And it is not slow. People fine LG's Web OS more intutive, but then My Home Screen is not slow. It is a good OS.

And ES630 is a 2017 model. Earlier DS630 was 2016. In 2017 they have improved their color rendering software and it is now called Hexa Croma Drive Pro (as compared to just Hexa Croma Drive). Refresh rate has also improved in the 2017 model.

42

thanks for your ans well satisfied but still have some doubts regarding its smart usage

is it user friendly -fast- loads quick- with out bufferring

43

Hi Can you tell me the best 43 inch tv which has HDR. Looking at SONY 43X8300D, VU 43S6575 , LG 43UH750T, SAMSUNG 43KU6000. Prefer VU due to low costs.How is VU as a brand.

44
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you are looking at a TV with HDR, I guess you are looking for great picture quality. In general the picture engine of Vu is not as good as that of Sony, Samsung or LG. It is otherwise a great brand if you are just looking for budget TV. But then in terms of technology, Sony, Samsung and LG are certainly better.

Among the models you have selected from LG, Samsung and Sony. Here is the comparison:

LG 43UH750T is an old model. It does not have technology to provide vibrant colors (larger color pallete). LG has also not mentioned the refresh rate of the model.

Sasmung 43KU600 is 2016 model. Their M series is the latest series. This has Purcolor technology from Samsung for better color pallete. This again is an old technology from Samsung. The refresh rate is 100 Hz, so that will be good to view fast moving action scenes and video games.

Sony KD-43X8300D is the best model in your list. It has HDR for good contrast. It has triluminous display (sony technology for color representation) which is fantastic and will give you very rich picture. And the refresh rate is also 100 Hz, so it will show blur free picture.

Sound output is 20W RMS for all of them so there is not much difference on that aspect. OS wise LG WebOS and Samsung Smart Hub are better, but then Sony also has Android which is quite good. So I think Sony KD-43X8300D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ryniiq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xfBQk!NNNN ) would be the best among all.

45

Thanks a lot Abhishek for your detailed feedback. Can you please suggest the best 43 inch tv in the market right now.It needs to have the best picture quaility with the latest features and must be durable. Doesnt need to be a 4k/HDR Tv/smart tv. Thanks again

Hi Rajkumar,

It is difficult to comment on durability of any TV. Usually brands give only 1 year warranty. However, for the best picture quality you can check these:

can u suggest which one to go for i have both the models for the same price range;
LG 43LJ617T
Panasonic 43ES630D

thanks,

48
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi,

I would say LG 43LJ617T would be a better TV because it has better OS and in general I think LG has better picture technology as compared to Panasonic.

49

Hi Mr.Abhishek,

First of all thanks for guding so many persons like me

I want to buy a new TV,My budget is 40 to 50 K.It should very new model and should be of big screen 50+.Pls suggest

50
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Srinivas,

I think Vu LEDN50K310X3D-Ver2017 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KOToTTuuuN ) would be the best model in your budget. It is a UHD model with Pixelight HDR. This should have a very good picture quality. The refresh rate is also high in this model.

Other model that you can check is Panasonic TH-50C300DX (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xnWFg!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2s7pP82 ) .... this is a model from a premium brand, so does not have high end features, but then in TVs picture engine which is a software is also important and premium brands have better softwares.

51

Hi, I am looking forward to upgrade from highly satisfied 2008 32" LG Scarlet 32LG60UR to 49" and above. Upon checking lgindia website & applying a filter at 49" , I am unable to zero one. Can you please suggest one.
My requirement is simple television set which offers better & competitive picture quality against my existing television than smart-tv or web-tech. Shall I move away from LG & try another brand, however I would not like to compromise on IPS panel & picture quality. Appreciate your response. Regards.

52
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Mahesh,

IN 49 inch, you can get UHD TV as well as Full HD TV. Most TVs with better technology for picture quality usually have SMART features as well. In fact brands like Sony have stopped making non-smart TVs and all their TVs have smart features. And the better models (with great picture quality) are usually smart. From your description, my initial guess is that you are looking for a Full HD TV. Let me know if you are looking for a UHD one. In Full HD TVs you can look at these:

If you are looking for exceptional picture quality with good colors, contrast and clarity, then you can look at these:

LG 49LJ554T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2uokgU0 )

If you are looking slightly more basic version then you can look at

LG 49LJ523T (This is not a SMART TV) but with good picture quality.

53

Abhishek Ji,

Can you pls check and update whether lg 55uj 632 is worth buying for a cost of 90k.

Pls also tell about Samsung m 5570 series

54
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Srinivas,

I think LG 55UJ632T would be a better choice because:

1) It is a 4K TV and Samsung 55M5570 is a Full HD TV. And at 55 inch, you will certainly find a great difference between the two.

2) LG TV also has good upscaler, so your HD channels will upscale to 4K.

3) The PMI index which LG uses for measuring its own LED TVs is quite high. So the picture quality of this TV will certainly be much better.

I think it is certainly worth buying at 90K.

55

Can Hotstar work in lg 55uj632T

56
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Srinivas,

I am not sure if webOS has hotstar. Looking at forums online it seems it does not have it. But you can always cast hotstart from your phone on the TV.

57

Hi Naresh,

You should check Sony KLV-32W672E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t1lBet , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/nmiAx!NNNN ) .... it is a great TV .... 32 inch and SMART as well.

59

Hello Abhishek Ji,
can you please adivice the best uhd tv among these 3 models
1) Panasonic TH-55EX600D

Hi Sathish,

Without going into too much of technical details, I have listed a few parameters for these three TVs:

Panasonic TH-55EX600DSony 55X8200ESamsung 55MU700
Color TechnologyGoodGoodGood
HDR (Contrast)YesYesYes
Picture EngineGoodGreatGreat

I think Samsung 55MU700 is the best among the three.

61

Thank you very much Abhishek ji.

62

i have been following this site for the past 1 year and i have made right choices in buying goods. and now i want to buy a smart tv of 43 inches and i wish to know your perspective between my 2 choices Panasonic TH-43ES630D and SONY KDL-43800D and suggest one which is better dominant. also suggest if there are any from your perspective as my 2 choices fall in below 55000/- price which i enquired from local dealers kindly suggest below 55000/- models. give a note on processor and internal memory and apps of smart tv i mentioned. thank you

63
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Michael,

I think that among the two models that you have listed, Panasonic TH-43ES630D would be a better choice. Here is the comparison on picture quality:

1) In terms of Color: Panasonic model has Hexa Chroma Drive which will give it better color than the Sony model. Sony model is a base plain model.

2) In terms of contrast: Panasonic model has IPS super bright panel which will give it a better contrast. Again sony model is a base plain model.

3) Refresh rate: Both the TVs have good refresh rate, so both will give good enough blur free action movie picture quality.

4) Sound: Panasonic model has powerful subwoofer. The sound output of Panasonic model is 35 W RMS whereas that of sony model is 20 W RMS.

5) OS: This is one place where I would rate the sony model higher because Andriod is a better OS than Panasonic's Firefox OS.

6) Picture engine: Although I would rate sony bit higher in terms of picture engine, but then on the whole the panasonic tv you have selected has much better features for picture quality.

I think Panasonic TH-43ES630D would be the best for you.

64

Thanks for your suggestion but I want to press you further on the decision as your site mentioned that Firefox os will be parted from Panasonic tv version. Is Sony brand Bravia engine better than ips Panasonic in terms of visual eye appearance if you visited both TVs in person in any Mall in comparing picture quality keeping apart prescribed specifications.

65
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Michael,

Firstly, it is not physically possible to go and see all the products in a mall and then compare two products. We usually see products with similar specifications (having different technologies) of various brands in the mall and based on that we make an opinion that a specific technology is good or better. Based on our observations, usually Sony has better picture engine as the tvs from sony with similar specs from others have better picture quality. Again this is our perception and people may differ as lot of it is just visual perception. TVs with better color technologies like Triluminous display and hexa croma drive have better color representation. So all our recommendations are based on that. For comparing the exact two models, I think you will have to go to a mall yourself to compare them visually as we can just compare based on the technology available and specs.

So yes Sony X Reality Pro is a better picture engine (bravia is a brand name and not the name of technology). Similarly Panasonic IPS is a panel technology and not picture engine technology. Panasonic's Picture engine is called "Fine Remaster Engine" and sony's x reality pro is certainly better visually (our opinion).

Panasonic currently uses Firefox or Opera. They do plan to move away from Firefox, but we do not know what will replace that. But currently they use either firefox or opera.

66

Hi,

I am looking to buy at TV which has good picture quality and sound quality, great clarity, great customer care as well, and most of all, i am looking to buy the best TV brand at a price range between 6000 to 8500 Indian Rupees, i live in mumbai suburbs, and Croma store is newly opened in my area..i m looking to buy during ganesh festival...please suggest me the best TV Brands within a price range from 6000 - 8500 indian rupees..

Thanks in advance

67
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rohini,

I am not able to find a good TV in your budget. I checked Croma website and they have models from their own brand Croma in that budget, but otherwise it would be difficult to get a good one in Rs 8.5K.

68

Hi, Hope all going good for you. Sorry if my previous questions posted on 11th and 12th of Aug'17 are received but in queue for your answers. I am posting it below again (on the premise that those were not received by you) for your review and suggestions please.

Please suggest one or two models from the below:

Vu 39" FHD LED TV H40D321 (Rs 22k), A+ grade & IPS panel
Vu 39" FHD LED TV SMART LED40K16 (Rs 27k), Rs 5k extra for Smart
Vu 43" FHD LED TV LED40K16 (Rs 26k), A+ grade & IPS panel
Vu 43" FHD LED TV SMART (Rs 34k), Rs 8k extra for Smart),

Sanyo Nxt 43" FHD LED TV XT-43S7200F (Rs 26.5k), 1+1 year warranty (few are saying it won't play AC3 format?)

Panasonic 40" FHD LED TV SMART TH-40DS500D
Panasonic 43" FHD LED TV TH-43D350DX

Is a smart TV with inbuilt OS and processor any better (spending Rs 5 to 8k extra) than buying a non-smart and making it work as smart TV with Amazon Fire TV stick or other similar device (that costs about Rs 4 to 5k), from functionality point of view?

I plan on buying 43" or 40" (non-smart or smart) unless 39" is found better for some technical/functional reasons.

Thank you and look forward to suggestions.

69
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Abhijit,

I could not find any question in your name on 11th/12th Aug. I guess you may have had some error while submitting it. Well coming to your question, I personally believe that Amazon Fire Stick has an amazing experience as the UI is quite intuitive and the voice interface is also amazing. So there is no harm in purchasing non SMART TV. But here is the thing, especially in premium brands, the TVs that have better specs are usually SMART TVs. Sony for that matter has stopped making Non SMART TVs. But with non premium brands, you can get TVs with good specs without SMART features as well.

Now among the models you have selected, Panasonic is one of the premium brands and their picture engine is quite good. So if you go for Panasonic TH-43D350DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZAH6I , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kksMLTuuuN ), then I think it will be a great choice (along with Amazon Fire Stick).

Sanyo is a brand promoted by Panasonic and it is their budget version. The feedback on Sanyo is also really good. But as you said, it may not support all the formats. Their SMART TVs do mention support for AC3, so a Sanyo SMART TV would be good if you are looking for AC3 support.

Finally, Vu is a good Indian brand. Quite popular for the value for money that they offer. But if I have to compare Vu and Panasonic, I would say Panasonic would be better as they have better picture engine. Although from technical specs perspective you will not find much difference in all the models you have listed (they all have basic technical specs), but just from a software (picture engine) perspective I would rate Panasonic higher that other brands and the model I mentioned above along with Amazon firestick would be the best option.

70

I am planning to buy a Smart TV and my budget is within 45K. Could you please suggest which of the below TV is the best.

Panasonic 108 cm (43 inches) TH- 43ES630D Full HD LED Smart TV,
LG 108 cm (43 inches) 43LJ554T Full HD LED Smart TV

71
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Kiran,

Both the models that you have mentioned have good technology for color representation, contrast and picture clarity. LG has not mentioned refresh rate of its TV but that of Panasonic model is really fast. So if you are into watching fast action sports and movies, then I would give benefit of doubt to the Panasonic model. But in terms of SMART features, LG is far ahead and its WebOS is quite good and intuitive. In case you watch regular TV and want a good Smart TV then LG 43LJ554T would be better.

72

Hi Abhishek,I have just bought a 5.1 home theatre worth 1.5 lakh,i want to change my old samsung 29 inch tv and buy a new led smart tv.i spend watching two third of my view time tv and one third movies.viewing distance 15ft..my budget is around 1 lakh.i am confused about to go for a 4ktv or a full hd led.is 4k worth considering we do not have uhd channels and to go for a branded 55 inch or a VU 65 inch .kindly give your valuable opinion and a suitable model

73
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Kiran,

A good TV is a combination of a good hardware and good software. Hardware is the panel of good quality, better resolution (FHD, 4K) and the backlighting (LED, OLED, etc). And then is the software which processes the images in a video for contrast, color, refresh rate (frames per sec), noise, etc. It is easier to get similar hardware across various brands, so you can get a UHD, FHD, IPS Panel, A+ grade panel, or whatever that is there in almost every brand. The true difference comes in the software that determines the picture quality of a TV. The premium brands like Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic have better picture engines (or software) that preprocesses the incoming data and gets out a better picture quality. Of course hardware also matters because a screen that is UHD can show more information as it has more pixels, while a screen that is FHD can show less information as it has less pixels. So the clarity is better in UHD, but then that is just the hardware and it has to be matched with appropriate software to look stunning.

A Vu UHD would be cheap, bigger in size and decently good. But it cannot match the picture quality of a Sony UHD with technologies like HDR and Triluminous Display and their proprietary 4K X-Reality Pro picture engine. If you are not too picky about picture quality and you just want a big screen, then Vu 65 inch UHD will also be good. But if you want truly amazing picture quality then you will have to go for premium brands. But in that you may not get that big a size in TV (as their TVs are expensive) and for better picture quality you may have to settle with a smaller TV or just a Full HD TV (even a FHD Tv with good technology may look better as compared to bigger UHD TV from other brands).

For e.g if you look at 43 inch Sony KD-43X8300D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ryniiq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xfBQk!NNNN ) .... it will have stunning picture quality. But it is just 43 inch. It has 4K, HDR, Triluminous display, fast refresh rate.

Even their 50 inch Full HD Sony KDL-50W950D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t188Di , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KS1iRTuuuN ) will look good as it has triluminous display and fast refresh rate.

In Samsung 49 inch Samsung 49M6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2uojsPd , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5vmy9TuuuN ) will look good.

But then these are small TVs and not really big enough for a home theater. If you want to go for 55-65 inch then you will have to go for Vu. In general Vu is a good brand and very much a value for money brand.

As for 4K vs Full HD: premium brands do upscale FHD to UHD, so a sony or samsung TV will convert a Full HD input to UHD output (that is the role of the picture engine or the software). The upscaling will not be as great in other TVs, but will not be bad as well. And currently there are 4-5 UHD Channels in India (mostly sports) but hopefully they will increase in near future.

74

Hi Abhishek Jain,

I was very much planning to buy Sony but in the show room the sales person showed me Panasonic ES630D and found it as a descent competitor to Sony in terms of picture. What's your expert opinion about this Panasonic model.

75
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Nagadatt,

Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic are the premium TV brands in India. They compete in terms of technology. The kind of technology that is available in these brands is not there is most other brands. For e.g. ES630D has hexa chroma drive which can provide far better range of colors and shades that will not be there in many brands. It also has IPS super bright panel for good contrast. Although IPS Super bright may not be comparable to HDR but then it is not bad. The Sony models that I gave you did not have a technology for wider color shades (Sony has that in higher end models).

Among premium brands, Panasonic offers the most affordable TVs. The best of technologies in Panasonic may not be as good as best of technologies from Sony and Samsung, but still Panasonic is far better than most brands out there in the market. I think Panasonic ES630D would be better than the sony models I suggested you. Comparable models from Sony will be expensive, so I think ES630D would be a great choice.

76

Hi Abhishek,

I'm looking to buy a TV approx. 50' in size. I'm not too worried about 'smart' features as I can always use Chromecast or Roku, etc. Also, 1080p HD is enough for me and I don't necessarily want 4K.
Given all this, I'm looking for the best TV under 45K. What would your suggestions be?
I have looked at : TCL 123 cm (49 inches) L49P10FS Full HD LED Smart TV for Rs. 32000 on Amazon and
Sanyo 123.2 cm (49 inches) XT-49S7100F Full HD LED IPS TV (Black) again for Rs. 32000 on Amazon. So one is smart the other is not. Do you think it's better to go for TCL? Is TCL a reliable brand? Or should I stick to Sanyo even though it doesn't give smart features. Does Sanyo have enough service centres in India?
Thanks in advance !

77
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Tathagat,

Sanyo is a brand owned and marketed by Panasonic. So you will be redirected to Panasonic for service if you go for Sanyo. Panasonic has come up with this brand to compete with likes of Vu and Micromax that are really gaining popularity in budget models. I think Sanyo is a great brand with good technology (backed by Panasonic). On Amazon, it is more popular than TCL and the feedback on picture quality is quite good. You can always put a Chromecast of Amazon Fire stick to make it smart (as is it the regular OS on most budget TVs are not great). You can go for Sanyo or you may also look at these Vu Tvs:

Vu H50K311 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rcz5CB , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KOjd5TuuuN )
Vu 49S6575 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezmDIe" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://amzn.to/2ezmDIe , Flipkart Link: http://amzn.to/2ezmDIe" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://amzn.to/2ezmDIe )

These Vu TVs have better refresh rate, just in case you watch a lot of fast action movies or sports.

78

There's also Sansui 127 cm (50 inches) SNX50FH24XAF Full HD LED TV at 37000. Again between Sansui, Sanyo and TCL, which is the most reliable brand?

79

Hi Abhishek,

Your blog is super helpful. Thanks to the team for the great work.
I am looking to buy a TV for my parents and have trouble in deciding between the following ones.
I have arranged it in increasing order of price.

1. Sony 43W800D - Full HD, Smart TV
2. Sony 43W950D - Full HD, Android TV
3. Sony 43X7002E - 4k UHD with smart features
4. Sony 43X7500E - 4k UHD, HDR Android TV

I did see that you had mentioned about 43X8200E, but that would be way beyond my reach.
Assuming they would be having this TV for a while, would you recommend a regular Smart TV or a Android Smart TV?
Please do let me know if there is any other model/brand worth considering.

Thank you very much for your suggestions.
Jay

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jay,

Here are a few points to consider:

1) At 43 inch Full HD and UHD do not make a whole lot of difference. 43 inch is the starting size for UHD and at that size the difference is minor.

2) Android TV is certainly better as the app store is better and UI is more intuitive (especially if you are used to android). Regular Opera OS in Sony TVs is not that great.

3) The two 4K TVs that you have chosen have HDR. HDR provides better contrast. For e.g. if you take a picture of a lit candle from your camera (try taking a picture of candles lit on a cake), you will see that without HDR the light from the candle is so bright that you cannot see the border of the cake. But if you have HDR, the border of the candle light will be visible along with the border of the cake. For understanding it better check this link: ..... so it just handles contrast better.

4) Sony 43W950D has Triluminous display which is a technology to provide wider color pallet to the TV. So the colors will look more vibrant. So you will see rich colors.

5) The two Full HD TVs you have chosen have higher refresh rate as well. Which means fast moving action scenes or sports will look much more blur free.

6) Sony KDL-43W950D also has Dual Accostic Sub Woofer, so the sound quality would be much better.

I assume your parents will be watching normal TV and not much of fast moving action sports or games. So Fast refresh rate would not be much required. But then comparison has to be between HDR and Triluminous Display. I think Sony KDL-43W950D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rI5EMi , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/nmLv0!NNNN ) would be the best choice (better sound, triluminous display, fast refresh rate, Android).

81

Thanks, Abhishek.
It looks like 43W950D is a 2016 model and a local Sony dealer is offering Sony 43X7500E for the same price as 43W950D. Seems like a good deal. What say?

82
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

X Series is certainly 2017 series and a UHD series. You can go with it. It has HDR and 4K, which should look good.

83

Is the SANYO (XT-43S7200F) USB media player support AC3 format of audio (5 Channel Audio) ? As most of the HD quality movies available today comes with AC3 5 channel audio.
If not, pls. suggest can I play this type of videos (with audio) from any other way/method on this TV.
*As per my knowledge SANYO (XT-43S7100F) is not support for AC3 format.

84
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Mangesh,

The specifications of the model do not mention AC3 ( https://www.sanyoappliance.in/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/User-Manual_XT-43S7200F.pdf ) .... so I do not think it is supported. I am currently not aware of any method with which you can play it on this TV.

85

Thanks Abhishek for your prompt response...

86

Hi,

I am planning to buy a Smart TV and my budget is within 40K. Could you please suggest which of the below TV is the best.

Panasonic 100 cm (40 inches) TH-40DS500D Full HD LED Smart TV
LG 108 cm (43 inches) 43LH576T Full HD Smart LED IPS TV (Black)

87
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sGXbrd , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xx!Tg!NNNN ) has a better refresh rate. So in case you watch fast moving action movies and sports or do gaming then that would be a better TV.

But if the content that you watch is regular and you want a better OS in TV then LG 43LH576T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZoQ8I , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/k1zk~TuuuN ) would be better off.

Another option that would be good would be to go for Panasonic TH-43D450D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2s7H8Ws , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/x1tqq!NNNN ) and attach an amazon firestick to convert non smart to smart TV. This TV has better picture technology for better picture quality. But it is not a SMART TV. Even for Sound, this TV is better.

88

Hi Abhishek,

My budget is around Rs.40,000. I want a TV in the 49-55 inch bracket. I saw that the BPL Vivid BPL139F2010J (55 inch) is on sale for around this price. Is it a good buy? I also saw the Sanyo XT-49S7200F (49 inch) for Rs, 32000. I'll be using the TV for mainly watching some movies and sports. I went to the BPL website and saw that they use an A+ panel where as the Sanyo uses IPS Panel. What is the difference between the two? Is one better than the other? Should this be an important factor for buying a tv? Will there be that much of a difference in clarity as both TVs are anyway Full HD? Personally I like the BPL as it is bigger :) What do you think?
Also are there any other TVs you'd like to suggest for me in this price range? Please give me your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help.

89
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Mithun,

A+ grade and IPS are two different things. IPS is a technology while A+ is a quality standards. IPS Panel can also be A+ and I think Sanyo is also A+ grade. A+ grade panel will have least number of dead pixels. Also a lot depends on the picture engine of the TV which is a the software component that processes the image for clarity, color, contrast etc. IPS Panel is also just one hardware component and not the software. Usually premium brands have really good software. Sanyo is a brand owned by Panasonic which is one of the premium brands. I would suggest Sanyo but then you can make a better choice if you can check these TVs out yourself physically.

Also not all Full HD TVs are same. If you compare decently value for money brands like Vu, Micromax with brands like Sony, Samsung, even in Full HD you will feel the difference (because the picture engines of premium brands are better). They handle contrasts better, they reduce the noise in the incoming image, they have better handling of refresh rates (for high action sports), they have better contrasts (especially the ones with HDR), they can have better colors as well (premium brands have better technologies for color representation). So Full HD (or more pixels) is just one of the parameters for better clarity.

Hi Abhishek,

Thank you very much for your explanation. I'm beginning to understand the difference now. Unfortunately I can't physically check both these TVs as they are available only online. So I have to decide based on whatever information/ suggestion I can get from you and company websites.

Do you know whether the BPL TV I mentioned - BPL Vivid BPL139F2010J (55 inch) has the IPS panel technology? I tried looking at their site but wasn't able to find any info regarding the IPS technology.

Also, I'd like your suggestions for 55 inch tvs. My budget is around Rs.40000. Are there any good TVs for that price? What are your thoughts? Thanks again for your help

91
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Mithun,

I am not able to find any 55 inch that fits in your budget in my database. I think Sanyo 49 inch is a great choice. Or Vu 49S6575 (amazon link: http://amzn.to/2ezmDIe , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5HvMOTuuuN ) which is again a 49 inch model.

92

Hi Abhishek,

Thank you for your reply. As there is a sale going on I found the following deals for these 3 TVs

VU 140cm (55) Full HD LED TV (LED-55K160GAU) is available right now for rs 38000 on Flipkart
BPL Vivid BPL139F2010J (55 inch) is also around Rs. 38000 on Amazon
Both of the above are not smart TVs which is fine for me.
Kodak 140cm (55) Full HD LED Smart TV around Rs. 42000 on Flipkart

I'm not able to paste the links here for these without it occupying most of the page! Vu has been having good reviews. What are your thoughts on BPL? I was leaning towards Sanyo but since I found these deals I'm thinking which to go for now. What do you suggest with the 55 inch TV deals? Are they worth it? Once again thank you for help and sorry I'm asking so many questions.

93
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I would still suggest Sanyo or Vu. I think they have better technology in comparison. And Sanyo being backed by Panasonic (which is one of the premium brands) makes a strong case.

94

which is better 32 inch LED TV among LG 32LH604T , Samsung 32M5570 and SONY 32W672E. I was using sony 32 inch Full HD model EX52 series but panel has developed some vertical lines, sony service center says replacement will cost Rs 16500. I am thinking better to replace with new TV. Which of the above 3 model consumes least power and which TV will have best picture quality. I want a smart TV.

95
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

As far as power consumption is concerned, Both the Sony and Samsung models you have listed are BEE 1 star rated. The LG model you have listed in BEE 4 star rated. Sony KLV-32W672E has power consumption of 35.65 watts, Samsung UA32M5570AULXL has power consumption of 37.73 watts and LG 32LH604T has power consumption of 25.58 watts.

As far as picture quality is concerned I think Sony KLV-32W672E would be fantastic as it has HDR (high dyanmic range) for better contrast. As it is X-Reality Pro is a great picture engine. Samsung UA32M5570AULXL would also be really good as it has better picture correction features (ultra clean view, contrast enhancer, micro dimming pro and purcolor).

As far as OS for smart TV is concerned, in that, LG's Webos and Samsung's Smart Hub would be better. If power consumption is a major factor then LG model would be the best.

96

I am getting very good offer on Sony 32W672E on Tataclique online shop.I doubt Sony India warranty will be provided for online purchase. Whether i should buy online or I should purchase Samsung 32M5570 if I get it at reasonable price. My requirement is good picture and sound quality and normal internet surfing.

97
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Gupta,

People have mixed experiences with online purchases just like you can have mixed experience if you purchase from an unknown store. Usually most online sites are marketplaces (just like a mall) where different sellers (or shopkeepers) sell their products. Some are good while some are not. You will have to check "Sold By" and "Fulfilled By" on the platform. On TataCliq, if it is Sold by Croma and Fulfilled by Croma, then it should not be a problem buying the product. Sony will surely provide warranty on products sold by Croma. The bigger challenge is with small sellers on Flipkart/Amazon. Which is why you have to check the reviews before you buy.

Also all online shops have replacement policy. So make sure that once you purchase the product, you register the model with the brand and ensure all warranties are respected before the date your replacement policy ends, so that you can return the product if the warranty is not available from the brand.

98

Hi Abhishek,
Kindly suggest me a Android Smart 55'inch TV in Sony or Samsung within 1lac range. Don't mind if it's 49'inch too.
Also I have a w950B Sony smart TV, is it possible to update android OS for the same?

99
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Samsung does not use Android OS. They have their own OS (Smart Hub). Sony does use Android. Here are some good models that you can look at:

Sony KDL-50W950D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t188Di , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KS1iRTuuuN ) .... This one has better sound system ... Triluminous display for better colors, Fast refresh rate for blur free action watching.

Sony KDL-50W800D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2eBxV0j , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/eEhN4!NNNN ) .... This one has fast refresh rate but rest of the features are normal.

Sony KLV-49W772E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rcDQMA ) .... this is a 49 inch TV but this has triluminous display for better colors and also subwoofer for better sound. The refresh rate is normal but it will not be a bad deal if you do not watch fast action movies..

In Samsung you can get:

Samsung 50KU6000 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2r4XpLP , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xY2kq!NNNN ) .... This TV has HDR for fantastic contrast (blacks and whites) ... and it is a 4K TV (UHD) .... but it has Purcolor which is an old technology from Samsung for color generation ....refresh rate is also fast ....Smart hub from Samsung is actually better than Android OS currently. This can be a very interesting choice in your budget.

Samsung 49K6300 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2r5M3XE , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kJgzdTuuuN ) ... This is a curved TV with fast refresh rate ... but this is Full HD ... The UHD model mentioned above would be better choice.

100

Hi AbhiShek Ji,
I'm Planning to purchase 32inch Tv. I am regular watcher & doesn't do gaming. I would like to have very good picture quality & sound & Smart Tv Features My budget would be around 20k to 30k.

101
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here are a few models that you can look at:

Sony KLV-32R422E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sJYrK5 , Flipkart link: http://fkrt.it/KSc~fTuuuN ) .... a very good SMART TV with HDR (high dynamic range) for good picture quality. The refresh rate is normal but you do not want it for gaming, so it would be really good. It has sub woofer for better sound and the OS is Opera which is decent.

Panasonic TH-32DS500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rENjQc , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/k9a98TuuuN ) ... another decent TV with good specs. It has IPS Super bright panel and fast refresh rate. OS in Panasonic is also opera.

LG 32LH604T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZ875L , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xGPWr!NNNN ) .... this is a Full HD TV with WebOS which is the best Smart OS in the market. The Panel is also IPS. The TV has Time Machine so you can record the programs on your TV without DVR box.

I think any choice between Sony and LG models would be great.

102

Hi Abhishek ji,
I'm planning to purchase 65 inch UHD tv. can u suggest which is best among LYF and VU brands? Because only these 2 brands offering 4k 65 inch UHD led tv around 1.3lakhs. If any good brand apart from these two please suggest.

103
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Lyf is Reliance's new brand whereas Vu is a little old and better established brand. I think Vu would be better. Vu and Microtek are couple of good brands in economy brands.

104

Thank you Abhishek ji.

105

Hello Abhishek
I am planning to buy a LED Tv arounf 22 inches to 24 inches which should support all the Current used Video formats through Pendrive ( Downloaded) like .mkv. H.264. Mpeg 4, Avi, MP4, 3GP etc. My budget is around 10 to 12 thousand, Kindly suggest which is best

106
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at these:

Philips 24PFL3951/V7 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kd9QbTuuuN )
Panasonic TH-22D400D

These two fit in your budget and support all the formats.

107

What about the brand Micromax, Panorama, VU and Clarion, is this LED TVs are upto mark and support all the video formats thru USB

108
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Vu and Micromax are good and popular but I cannot say the same for Panorama and Clarion. And then you had mentioned some specific formats and I could not find Vu and Micromax specifically mentioning if they can run those formats. I specifically checked for TVs that can run those formats.

109

Hi Abhishek,

I am planning to buy a Sony TV. I am expecting a very good sound quality and a HD picture quality. An LED TV will less power consumption and having a very good refresh rate. Looking for 40 inch TV. Could you please suggest a good model.

110

I am having a budget of 50K. What is the benefit of android in a television. Also how best is the internet usage with the TV's. Is it friendly to browse in TV's. Can we connect a keyboard or a mouse to such TV's.

What is the difference between Full HD and HD ready. Is there a big difference. I am looking for a good picture quality because of which i am opting for Sony. Trust the brand also provides good sound features as well.

Could you please suggest me a good TV in Sony (32 inch to 40 inch). Looking for a good allrounder TV instead of best in one or two aspects. Need your expert advice to make this decision.

111
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Android OS on a TV provides an app store and various apps just like your android phone does. So you get access to lot of content available online on apps like hotstar, netflix, amazon prime, etc etc. You also get Youtube app so you directly watch youtube videos on your TV by connecting your TV to internet. There are several other TV OS in market like LG's WebOS, Samsung's SMART Hub, Panasonic uses Opera, there are Linux TVs as well. The benefit is apps. So your TV becomes just like your smart phone, just that the apps are more for video content, music content and games.

You get access to Web Browser as well on SMART TVs. You can certainly connect a keyboard to a smart TV. The remote itself acts as a pointing device (just like mouse).

Difference between Full HD and HD Ready is just like difference between a 0.9 megapixel image and 2.1 megapixel image. It just has more information and thus more clarity. However, at 32 inch you will not be able to see a major difference between the two. Full HD will look slightly better but not a whole lot. But beyond 32 inch (with bigger TVs), you will certainly notice a major difference in picture clarity between a HD Ready and Full HD.

If you are looking for 32 inch, then Sony KLV-32W672E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t1lBet , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/nmiAx!NNNN ) would be the best choice. Reason: 1) It has HDR (High Dynamic Range) which gives it amazing contrast to show very good pictures (good range of blacks and whites) 2) X Reality Pro picture engine from Sony is one of the best in the market 3) It is Full HD 4) It has Sub woofer built in to give better sound. Downside is that it does not have Android (usually Android is available in bigger and expensive TVs). The TV has Opera OS which is quite decent but not as rich as Android. However, you can connect your Smartphone and access the apps on your phone on the TV as well (this TV has Miracast).

In 40 inch you can get Sony KLV-40W562D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2e3x2Lt , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5H30gTuuuN ) ..... This is a 40 inch Full HD TV. Again it has X Reality pro picture engine which is good. However, this does not have HDR, so the contrast will not be as good. This TV is also driven by Opera OS. And this TV as well has Subwoofer for better sound.

So if you want bigger TV then 40W562D is a better choice. Else KLV-32W672E should have better picture quality.

112

Hi Abhishek

Could you please suggest a model which is within 50K. Should be having internet facility as well. What is the benefit of android in the TV. Does Sony offer such Android based models and is there any model which is affordable at my budget.

113
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you want to go for 43 inch then Sony KD-43X8300D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ryniiq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xfBQk!NNNN ) will have the best picture quality, although sound quality would be ok. In 40 inch you can look at Sony KLV-40W672E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2s3eFQH , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/nCP79!NNNN ) .... this has good color as well as contrast, but refresh rate is normal, but with subwoofer, the sound quality is good.

114

Hi Abhishek,

Currently I own Samsung 46" model H7000 TV. But there are some black lines appearing on the screen. Samsung does not have spare part to replace so they decided to pay back the amount (Depreciation) as it covers under warranty. I was very satisfied with the over all performance of the TV. Now i want to buy a new one. TV will be used for mainly Gaming (PS 4 Pro), regular TV shows, Movie (action) & occasional Sports. I am confused to choose between 2K and 4K as i don't find any content available in 4K for next few years. No 3D and no Samsung please. My budget is between 60K to 1L and screen size should be between 43" to 50". Please suggest.

115

Hi sanjeev, i too got same problem with my Samsung 46H7000. Due to non availability of Panel, Samsung people deprecated 33% on purchased value and refunded 67%. Today itself i got my refund. As you said please dont go for 3D tv. In my opinion Sony is best. I'm also planning Sony 4k tv.

Regards,
j.sathish.

116
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Sanjiv,

Here are some points that I have in response:

1) There are a few 4K channels in India: list on wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_4K_channels_in_India

2) TVs do upscaling. So the picture engine of Televisions try to extrapolate information and fill in some missing information and try to upscale 1080p to 4K. In general if your TV is not really huge and is around 49-55 inch, the upscaling does not feel grainy. And in fact looks slightly better. A lot also depends on the TV software called picture engine. Cheaper 4Ks can actually make full HD feel grainy. Premium brands have better software. However, having said that, the different will not be huge between a Full HD content and the same upscaled to 4K. And a regular 4K will actually look a lot better.

3) Usually 4K TVs have higher specs and better (latest) technology as well. So if you want a better picture quality then going for 4K sometimes works out better.

You can look at these:

In Sony:

If you are looking for 43 inch then Sony KD-43X8200E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2w2OPey ) would have the best picture quality. Not just because it is a 4K TV, but also because it has HDR (High Dynamic Range) for better contrast, Triluminous Display for wider colour pallet and fast refresh rate for blur free gaming and action movie watching.

If you want 50 inch then you can look at Sony KDL-50W950D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2t188Di , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KS1iRTuuuN ) .... This one also has Triluminous Display for wider color pallet and fast refresh rate. But then it does not have HDR. Still it will look good for sure. And it is Full HD.

In Panasonic:

The best picture quality would be in Panasonic TH-49CX700D .... not just because it is 4K, but also because it has Hexa Croma Drive for wider color pallet and fast refresh rate for blur free viewing of games and action movies. The Bright IP Panel give it good whites, but this TV does not have HDR for darker blacks as well. But still, great picture quality. And at 49 inch the Ultra HD will also look good.

LG has not specified Refresh rate on its TVs, so I am not able to find a good model for you.

117

Hi Abhishek.
I am planning on buying a VU Tv 40 inch as it suits my budget.
First I would like to ask if I should go for 39 inch model VU available on Flipkart or 40 inch model as I think 1 inch would hardly matter and difference is Rs. 2000.
Apart from this please compare VU with Micromax as VU is offering 40 inch for 25k and micromax 43 inch for 26k.
At last what are the additional things I would get if I opt for a smart TV among these, throw some light on smart TV also.

118
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Govind,

I think it is a tricky question because from a brand value perspective I would say both Vu and Micromax are almost the same. Feedback for Vu in my perspective is slightly better. But then the brands are quite comparable.

And certainly there would be very slight difference between 39 inch and 40 inch. But if you are getting 43 inch model in your budget then that would be slightly better. But finally comparison depends on the specs of the TV and I can make a better comment only after knowing the models you are looking at.

SMART Tv should help you to connect to the internet. So you can see YouTube videos, Netflix videos, or videos from any other streaming app. You can also surf internet on your TV.

119

Hi Abhishek,

I am planning to buy a 32 inches led TV and had initially thought of Sony KLV-32W672E,however,today in the Croma shop,they showed me a Panasonic TV (32ES500) and i kind of liked it..My requirement would be a 32 inches TV smart TV (alongwith full hd,however,didnot find much of a difference in the picture clarity of HD Ready and Full HD).Could you please advise which one to buy among these two.or may be if you have any other thoughts

120
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Ms Mahajan,

Firstly at 32 inch, you will not find a whole lot of difference between Full HD and HD Ready as at that size, the difference is minor. 32 inch is the entry level size for Full HD and usually many brands do not have 32 inch Full HDs. In fact Pansonic does not make any 32 inch Full HDs.

Another thing is that if you are going for a SMART TV at that size, then do not go for Sony as they do not have Android in that size. And their native OS is not really up to the mark. Panasonic also uses Firefox OS, which is just ok. LG has the best OS (WebOS) in the market. And Samsung would have great picture quality along with a decent OS. You can look at these models:

Samsung 32K5570 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sGEXG9 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xQxKx!NNNN ) .... This is a Full HD TV from Samsung. It has fast refresh rate, better contrast, noise reduction and quad core processor. The Smart Hub from Samsung is a better OS.

Panasonic TH-32ES500D is also a great TV. It has Hexa Croma drive for a wider color pallet, It has fast refresh rate for no blur while watching fast action scenes, IPS superbright for better whites and more brightness. But it is a HD Ready TV, which does not make a whole lot of difference at this size. From a picture quality perspective, this would be the best TV for sure. But OS will not be fantastic and intutive.

LG 32LH604T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZ875L , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xGPWr!NNNN ).. Good TV with better OS, but certainly not the best picture quality but it would be decent. The Panels is IPS and is bright. But refresh rate is normal. The WebOS is the best out there in the market.

I think if you want best picture quality and you are fine with the OS then Panasonic would be the best. However, to balance both (picture quality and OS) I think Samsung model would be better. You can check them in the stores.

121

Hello Abhishek, can u suggest best of three LG49SJ800T(super UHD), SONY49X900E,SAMSUNG 49MU7000.
I am good enough budget to go. But want the best one. Main picture quality and sound quality.

122
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Srinivas,

These are all the top 49 inch models from these brands and picking one is extremely difficult. All of them have HDR. All of them have the best color display technology from the brands (Sony has Triluminous, Samsung has Quantum Dots and LG has Nano Cell display for wider color pallet). They all have high refresh rate for blur free watching of action sequences. All have powerful picture processors. So it all depends on personal choices. In my personal opinion, Sony has a better picture engine, so I would prefer Sony 49X900E. But then Samsung would not be too bad nor would be LG. You can go for any one of them that fits in your budget. All of them are top of the line.

123

Hello Abhishek Sir,
I'm interested in 3d led tv but this year none of the Tv manufacturers released 3d led tv. May i know the reason behind that and can u please suggest me a best 55 inch 3d led tv? if 3d is not a good idea then please suggest me best UHD 55 inch tv.

Regards

124
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

3D as a technology has not really worked (globally). And that is why 3D TVs have slowly vanished from the scene. What is your budget for this TV?

125

Sir,My budget is around1.25lakhs. please suggest best 55 inch UHD.

126
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you want a 3D TV then you can look at this one:

Panasonic TH-55CX700D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sXhlMW )

Otherwise these TVs are also really good:

Sony KD-55X8500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sJFtn5 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/KS47~TuuuN )
LG 55UH650T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZnjzz , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xfo40!NNNN )

Jagannath Sengupta

Hi,

Which of the below 2 models will be better in terms of power consumption and viewing experience:

1. Panasonic 55 cm (22 inches) TH-22D400DX Full HD LED TV, and
2. Sony 55 cm (22 inches) BRAVIA KLV-22P413D Full HD LED TV

128
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Panasonic TH-22D400DX has lower power consumption. I think you can go with Panasonic TH-22D400DX.

129

Hi Abhikshek, I am planning to have best smart UHD TV with 49 inches can you suggest samsung MU7000/KU7000.
or any other brand. So far I found samsung MU7000 got all features for next 5 year and picture quality is dam good bit expensive. kingly suggest

130
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Srinivas,

KU is 2016 model and MU is 2017 model. So MU will certainly have latest features. Also MU 7 series is the best that is available in India from Samsung in 49 inch. What is your budget for the TV?

131

I am planning to go for 49inch. And to have best picture/sound quality I decided to go for MU7000.
I compared MU7000 with SONYx82d(not sure on model but latest one) in the showroom and MU got better picture quality.
Initially my budget was 1lakh but can afford bit more and online I have seen MU7k price which is 144000.
You can suggest other models which should have feature of MU with in 1lakh.

132
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Difficult to get similar specs in budget of 1 lakh. These models have advanced technology which are expensive. The best that I could find in 1 lakh are:

LG 49UH770T (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sGEsvZ , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kxjP8TuuuN )
Panasonic TH-49CX700D

But none of Sony and Samsung models I think would fit in that budget.

133

Hi Abhishekji,

Kindly suggest 43'' LED TV at budget of 35k - with IPS display panel.

134

Hi Abhishekji,

Which of the below 2 models are better in display

1. Sanyo 43" XT-43S8100FS Smart TV,
2. Sanyo 43'' XT-43S7100F.

135
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

The specifications are exactly the same. There is no difference. It is just that one is SMART TV and other is not.

136
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at these:

Panasonic TH-43D350DX (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2rZAH6I ,Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kksMLTuuuN )
LG 43LH516A (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2r5bjxs , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xoQp0!NNNN )
Sanyo XT-43S7100F (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2twOK0L ) ... Sanyo is now Panasonic brand.

137

Hi Abhishek,
I am looking for 43 or 49 inch TV. My viewing distance would be 8.5ft to 9ft. What would be the ideal TV size?
I am not able to decide between w800d, w772e, w672e, w752d & w562d. I am regular watcher & doesn't do gaming. I would like to have very good picture quality & sound. My budget would be around 65k. Only looked at Sony so far. I can look at Samsung or Panasonic as well. Can you suggest a good model to go for.

138
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Venky,

Firstly 43 to 49 inch would be fine for 8.5-9 ft viewing distance. Also if you are a regular TV watcher then you do not need high refresh rate. For better picture quality you need more better resolution (Ultra HD would be better but Full HD would also be fine), vibrant colors (a larger color pallet in the TV) and better contrast (a model with HDR or high dynamic range would be awesome). Plus a good sound system.

In Sony the best I could find is Sony KLV-43W772E (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2r8G6sX ). This model has Triluminous Display (for vibrant colors), HDR (for better contrast) and also has subwoofer for better sound. The refresh rate is basic 50 Hz, but for regular TV watching that is good enough. It is a SMART TV but the OS is not Android. So certainly not the best SMART TV in Sony. But if you are just looking at YouTube/Netflix in SMART features, then this should be good enough.

In Samsung you can get a UHD Tv in your budget. You can check Samsung 43KU6000 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xYQ!g!NNNN ) ... This has more resolution (Ultra HD), has HDR for better contrast, refresh rate is also better (about 100 Hz) but it uses Purcolor technology for color pallet. Purcolor is older technology from Samsung and their latest QLEDs are far better in terms of generating better color shades. But QLEDs are expensive. The sony model I mentioned earlier would be better in terms of colors and vibrancy. But this model will show sharper pictures (edges) as there is more details in Ultra HD. However, in 43 inch the difference in UHD and Full HD will not be a lot.

You can also get 49 inch Samsung 49K5100 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sGOFZc , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kKESbTuuuN ) in your budget, but then the picture quality will not be as good as the two mentioned above.

In Panasonic you can get 49 inch Panasonic TH-49DS630D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2s7MAsd , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kGYw4TuuuN ) which will be good. It has Panasonic's IPS Superbright Panel for the contrast and Hexa Chroma Drive for better color pallet. It's refresh rate is also 100 Hz. But it is a Full HD TV. And it does not have HDR (bright panel can handle the whites, but for better blacks, HDR is better).

On the whole I think Sony W772e would be the best choice for you.

139

Hi Abhishek,
I am looking to buy a 40 to 50 inch TV with a budget of under 30k. Given my budget I don't want a premium brand as I feel that I can get similar quality products online at a good price. My techie colleague in office has highly recommended the Sanyo 43 inch TV XT-43S7100F TV which he has bought on Amazon. I have seen the TV at his residence and the picture quality and IPS display was indeed very good and comparable with the premium brands. Also my colleague told me that Sanyo is a brand owned by Panasonic and the service is done by them. As my last TV was a VU TV whose display got damaged in 2 year and was not covered under warranty I am looking for a good foreign brand which has a good service network. This TV has the most reviews on Amazon which means it is the largest selling TV there. Also while researching on Amazon I saw a TCL 39 inch TV L39D2900 which is much cheaper but the brand has poor service reviews and seems a pure Chinese import.
Please let me know what would you recommend as I want to make the right choice which will last 5+ years. Thanks in advance.

P.S. - You are doing a great job with the site. Reading the article and the comments were really helpful.

Hi Arjun,

Panasonic made an acquisition of Sanyo in 2009. So Sanyo is a Panasonic brand now. In August 2016 Panasonic launched Sanyo TVs in India. Sanyo used to be a very good brand in past. It is a Japanese brand and has Japanese technology. The reviews are also good, so it is a good choice. They have released a very limited range in the name of Sanyo and interesting thing is that it will compete with Panasonic. My guess is that they did not want to mix it with the Shinobi series that they are promoting heavily recently and wanted to have something that will compete directly with the cheaper brands. The specs are decent (not very high end). However, hardware is just one aspect in TVs and the real picture quality depends on the software piece (which is the picture engine). So specs are just one aspect and you have to watch the TV yourself to be convinced about the picture quality. The feedback on picture quality is also good. So you can certainly go with it. Will it last 5+ years?? (well it is launched in 2016, so difficult for anyone to say that). But I would bank on Panasonic's quality for this one as well.

Hi Shankar,

If you are not too picky on the brand then Vu models with Ultra Smooth Motion Rate and UHD screens would be interesting choice. You can look at these:

Vu 43S6535
Vu LED40K16 UHD (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezn1pW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5HTFUTuuuN )

Or even a Full HD: Vu 49S6575 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezmDIe , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5HvMOTuuuN )

Otherwise you can look at these:

Panasonic TH-40DS500D (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2sGXbrd , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xx!Tg!NNNN )
Philips 43PFL4351/V7 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/kFYFdTuuuN )

Hi

As per your recommendation, I purchased Samsung 55KS9000 4K HDR TV and I am extremely satisfied with price. I got it for 2Lakhs + Sound bar (Free) from the local dealer.

I am looking for smaller 4K UHD Tv for bedroom. Any suggestions? My budget is around 40k (<50 inch)

Thanks.

In that price range you will have to go for Vu or Micromax (both mostly sold online). You can look at these:

Vu 43S6535
Vu LED40K16 UHD (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2ezn1pW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/5HTFUTuuuN )
Micromax 43E9999uhd (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/xlezY!NNNN )

Hello, Which tv (large 40'' plus) will last longer out of all the brands as spending 40-50K is not a small amount? I am asking as my 2 year old LG 42 inch TV got 3 white spots on the screen. On checking about this on internet I came to know this is a common problem in LG and samsung or any other brand TV's because of there bad/cheap manufacturing. 39-48 inch is the common size which people purchase these days. So this is where they try to make the profit. Anyways does anyone have any idea to how white spots issue can be resolved or calling a technician and repairing the defective part is the only solution?

Hi Jitendra,

Difficult to pick a brand that will last longer. Ideally the premium brands should last longer. But electronic appliances are delicate and no one can guarantee long life. It will be better to call a technician who can see what the defect is.
