Design and build quality

Most of the budget LED TVs now selling in the market do feature a more or less the same design.

This helps them save a lot of money in the manufacturing process.

The Kodak 43CA2022 has a relatively slim profile and has narrow bezels at the sides of the display.

In terms of pure display quality, we would choose this model over any other competitors on this list to be the best-LED TV priced under Rs. 40,000 in India.
