Buying Guide: LED TV Under Rs. 20,000

To be honest, a budget of Rs.20,000 isn’t going to give you a lot of features when it comes to LED televisions.

However, we’d like to point out certain aspects that you can take into consideration while purchasing one.

Budget is like a shrinking blue circle (PUBG fans would get it).

For others, a limited budget gives a lot less room to negotiate.

Finding a sweet spot that combines features with price is a very daunting task.
Let’s see how we could tackle this situation.

1. Price

We have already set a price target in our mind.Great.

Well begun is half done.

Next to consider is what does the market offer me for Rs.20,000?

Or better what should I expect to find on an LED TV under a budget of Rs.20,000?

2. Display

This choice is absolutely simple.

Under a budget of Rs.20,000 you can only expect an LED display. Don’t even think of an OLED panel at this price range.

The major negotiating feature in this category is the resolution of the display rather than the display itself.

3. Resolution

Looking for a full HD television?

Sure, you will find a handful under this price.

For eg. brands like Vu and Kodak offers full HD televisions at very aggressive price tags.

4. Screen

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.20,000 comes with 32-inch displays. There are a few models which provides a 40-inch panels.

If your room is small, a 32-inch panel is sufficient enough to provide a good viewing experience.

5. Contrast ratio

The contrast ratio is one of the important aspects to take care of.

As a thumb rule, more the contrast ratio, better the display on the television.

Under Rs.20,000 most of the TVs do provide contrast ratios up to 100000:1.
For eg: Samsung 32J4003 priced at Rs.17,499 has a 32-inch display with a contrast ratio of 100000:1.

6. Refresh rate

Refresh rate reduces motion blur on the screen.

This will be more evident in the case of fast-moving scenes.More the refresh rate, lesser will be the strain on your eyes.

The Sony KLV-29P423D LED television priced at Rs.19,499 has a native refresh rate of 60Hz.

The TV comes with an interpolated refresh rate of 100Hz which can be turned off in the settings.

7. Connectivity

Connectivity does improve the overall usability of the television.

More the connectivity options, more devices can be hooked up to the television.

Almost all the LED TVs under Rs.20,000 comes with a minimum of 2 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports.

As an exception, the 32-inch Mi Smart TV priced at Rs.13,999 comes with 3 HDMI ports.

8. Speakers

Audio is one of the most neglected aspects while buying a television.

You shouldn’t expect any subwoofers coming with TVs priced under Rs.20,000.

The sound quality, no matter how much watts they advertise is going to suck.

We recommend you to invest in a separate sound Bluetooth speaker for a better audio experience.
