2. TCL S6500

tcl-40S6500
Best Display Quality
  • Elegant yet subtle design
  • Larger display with great visuals
  • Rich connectivity options

TCL is a Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer that started with selling data storage products across the world.

The company later diversified its product lineup and became a major player in the LED TV market.

The TCL 40S6500 is a 40-inch full HD LED television that comes at a fraction of price that its competitors offer for their similarly specced products.

Build Quality and Design

TCL follows a minimalistic design approach for this product. Nothing seems out of place and too much eye-catchy.

The bezels, though not minimal doesn’t seem like too much mainly because of the larger size display compensating it.

The entire construction is of plastic which doesn’t feel premium but does just right for its price.

Display

As more and more manufacturers started shipping full HD televisions for sub Rs.20,000 prices, the demand has skyrocketed.

However, having a mediocre Full HD panel instead of an excellent 720p is of no use.

TCL has done the right thing by choosing an A+ grade high-quality full HD display that outperforms even some of the established brands in the market in terms of its visual quality.

A+ grade achromatic panels don’t have the signature colour tints which manufacturers tend to apply during the production, resulting in much better colour accuracy.

This 40-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display features TCL’s signature LED backlight technology that enhances the colour gamut and contrast ratio to provide you with a better picture.

With the Dynamic Noise Reduction (DNR) technology built-in, this LED TV reduces signal interference with other electronic equipment in the vicinity and delivers detailed images and videos.

Overall, the TCL 40S6500 packs in a respectable full HD panel that is worth every penny you spend on this product.

Sound

Budget LED TVs usually neglect the sound department altogether. This may be due to the fear of overshooting the expected marketing price.

With the TCL 40S6500, the two-channel speakers on this television offer a surround sound experience that will make your viewing experience a bit immersive but for a full-blown experience, we suggest you invest in a good home theatre/Bluetooth speaker.

Miscellaneous

This television from TCL comes with a generous supply of output ports – 2 HDMI and 1 USB port for connecting other devices and peripherals.

TCL 40S6500 comes with an auto volume leveller feature. This will automatically adjust sudden volume fluctuations without blowing your ears off violently.

With the USB port supporting a wide variety of multimedia formats, you can view movies and photos of different formats without converting.

Verdict

The TCL 40S6500 is one of the best-LED TV under Rs.20,000 that delivers excellent picture quality with finer details, sported with a Full HD panel.

The only gripe we find with this product is the lack of a wider service centre network which we think might hinder the prospective buyers from making a decision.

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.
