Overall Best Pick
  • Best for Immersive media experience
  • True to life colours
  • High refresh rate results in less motion blur
Sony was and still is one of the most respectable manufacturers of home appliances out there.

Known for the quality and reliability, Sony has managed to carve out a niche market among those people who first look at the brand and then decide their purchase instead of the other way around.

The Sony KLV-40R352E is the slightly improved version of its younger sibling the KLV-32W672E minus the smart connectivity features.

First thing first – Not a Smart TV!!

Yep, first let us bring you back to the realization that this isn’t a smart TV.

There are no smart connectivity features built-in in this 40-inch LED television from Sony which comes at a premium budget of Rs.40,000.

Awestruck with the display quality..

If you are thinking about buying a TV purely for the stunning visuals, this is the best 40 inch LED TV from Sony priced under Rs.40,000.

The display on this device is a 40-inch full HD panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Sony’s proprietary display enhancing technologies are present such as a clear resolution enhancer.

The dynamic back lighting technology will automatically adjust the brightness of this display.

The colours are naturally vivid and the details are very much in there taking the whole TV watching experience to the next level.

A single USB port..

There are two HDMI ports on this device along with a single USB port.

This USB port supports Multi-format play feature that will let you play almost all media content covering a wide range of codec support.

And the additional benefits..

The TV has support for Indian languages built-in so that the operation is hassle-free even if the elder ones in your home isn’t that well versed in English.

The built-in FM tuner lets you listen to the nearby radio stations if you are bored watching the visuals (with this TV, you won’t be for sure).

The dual 5W speakers, despite only with 10W combined RMS sounds decent enough.

Our thoughts!!

If you are in search of the ultimate visual experience that money can fetch you under a budget of Rs.40,000, other competitors on this list doesn’t stand a chance in front of the Sony KLV-40R352E.

However, if you’d like to have the added advantage of smart connectivity features along with this level of display brilliance, there are alternatives in the list itself but to makes things a bit more clear, do check out our Best LED TVs under Rs.50,000 article.

2. TCL P2 L49P2US

Runner Up Pick
  •  Suited for 4K online streaming
  • Good build quality
  • 4K playback from USB
TCL, the Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer has recently released a slew of new LED TVs in to the Indian market in all possible price segments to appease budget conscious Indian consumers.

The TCL P2 L49P2US is a 49 inch LED smart TV that comes with a UHD 4K panel having 60Hz refresh rate.

Build quality and design..

This LED TV from TCL does have the same aesthetics that most of the Chinese brands follows in their models.

The large screen surrounded by not so thin bezels is a trademark feature with such products.

The back side of the TV is flat at the top and towards the bottom it projects out as all the necessary hardware is tucked inside this area.

Since the RJ45 port and others are placed on the back side of this TV, connecting cables when wall mounted is a bit of a mess. However, with the supplied stands, it’s fairly easy to tighten the screw and place it on a flat table.

4 times the resolution of an HD television..

As you’ve already noticed, the TCL P2 L49P2US comes with a 4K screen. This means that you can enjoy 4K content with all the finer details and colors on this 49-inch LED TV.

The colors are vivid and the brightness levels are decent with this television.

However, don’t compare the visual quality with the likes of Sony and LG as the 4K TVs from those brands costs significantly higher than what it costs for the TCL counterpart.

TCL markets this television as an HDR ready compliant device but in reality HDR ready doesn’t make any difference in the perceivable picture quality.

The higher resolution enables you to watch 4K content from streaming services such as Netflix and Youtube which considerably enhances the immersiveness of the visuals.

Smart – Yes, Oversmart – No!

The TCL P2L49P2US comes with rudimentary Android support to say the best. It has popular apps such as Netflix and Youtube to begin with.

This 4K LED TV also features an inbuilt app store to download more applications as well. But the collection of apps is nothing impressive as that of the original play store.

Since most of the Indian TV users use the smart connectivity to browse online streaming services, the lack of a proper app store is not much of an issue, we feel.

Ports and stuff..

This LED TV comes with 3 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports.

You can easily connect your gaming console with this TV without the need of plugging out the existing HDMI connection to the set top box.

Since this is a 4K television, you can play 4K content directly from the USB.

This is of great use as Indian internet has objectionable speeds when it comes to high quality video streaming.

Final thoughts..

The TCL P2 L49P2US is a capable performer when it comes to the decent 4K panel it offers for the price.

If you don’t mind the lack of service centers near you, we find nothing wrong in purchasing this device that offer a 1.5 year warranty compared to the 1 year warranty other brands offer.

Buying Guide: LED TV Under Rs. 40,000

Buying guide for TV under 40000
Buying a TV, that too with a budget close to half a lakh is not child’s play.

Let’s help you with the decision.

This buying guide details about certain things to be taken care of while purchasing a LED TV under Rs.40,000.


This budget would give you a lot of room to negotiate with premium features.

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.40,000 comes with the latest technology available in the market at present.

Even the low-end spectrum of the Rs.40,000 budget category offer great products from respectable brands.

2. Display

OLED screens are not yet available in this price bracket.

You will be getting LED panels with most probably edge-back lighting for slim bezels.

Models like Mi LED Smart TV 4 priced at Rs.44,999 comes with a 55-inch 10bit colour depth LED display.

Most of the panels will be IPS ( In-Plane Switching ) technology compatible meaning the viewing angles on these will be wider.

Always look for an IPS panel if available rather than zeroing in on a TV with a conventional LED display.

3. Resolution

Full HD resolution is the minimum you should target while purchasing a LED TV priced under Rs.40,000.

There are multiple models with 4K resolution display at this price.

Some of the new entrants in the market such as Vu and Xiaomi has models like Vu 43SU128 and Mi LED Smart TV 4 with 4K displays priced at Rs.36,999 and Rs.44,999 respectively.

4. Screen size

Theoretically, screen size has to be decided based on the volume of the room it has to be occupied with.

But practically under Rs.40,000, you could get televisions with display sizes ranging from 32-inches to a whopping 55-inches.

The Mi LED Smart TV 4 features a 55-inch display with 4K resolution at a price of Rs.44,999.

If you feel the heat of a premium price but desire a large enough display, there’s the 43-inch VU 43SU128 4K LED TV priced at just Rs.36,999.

5. Contrast ratio

Contrast ratio essentially implies the brightness levels the display can achieve.

An increase in this ratio is desirable as it will let the TV display more vivid and punchier images.

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.40,000 will offer decent contrast ratios.

However, having a minimum static ratio of 100000:1 is desirable.

LED TVs such as Mi LED Smart TV 4 has a static contrast ratio of 600000:1 which get the screen much brighter than conventional panels.

6. Refresh rate

This price bracket of Rs.40,000 is where the real variation in refresh rates can be seen on LED TVs.

Under Rs.40,000 there are a few models that provide panels with a true 100Hz refresh rate.

The 43 inch Panasonic TH-43ES480DX  priced at Rs.34,999 features one such 100Hz display.

Brands such as Sony also offers 100Hz display at this price along with their software interpolation to have a 200Hz refresh rate.

7. High Dynamic Range

HDR is a relatively new technology in LED TVs.

HDR dramatically improves the contrast ratio and colour gamut of the displays.

The only LED TV priced under Rs.40,000 featuring the industry-leading HDR10 is the Xiaomi Mi LED Smart TV 4.

With the technology being adopted widely, we hope HDR will be featured in more and more devices in the mid-tier price brackets.

8. Connectivity

Most of the TVs priced under Rs.40,000 comes with smart connectivity features.

Wi-Fi is the defacto standard for internet connectivity on these devices along with an RJ 45 ethernet port.

Televisions with 2/3 HDMI ports are the norm and with having USB ports is mandatory.

Some models like Mi Smart TV 4 comes with Bluetooth 4.0 technology.

It enables connecting the TV with other Bluetooth enabled wireless devices such as headphones and speakers.

9. Speakers

Acoustics has been sidelined once again in this price range as well.

Most of the LED TVs under Rs.40,000 comes with dual speakers that lack bass with the exception of Sony KLV-32W672E.

This Sony LED TV priced under Rs.40,000 comes with 2 8W tweeters along with a 14W sub woofer.
