Value for Money TV

TCL is a Chinese electronics manufacturer that recently came to the limelight after acquiring the rights for manufacturing Android smartphones for Blackberry.

The TCL 55P8E is a 55-inch 4K UHD Smart LED TV which sports one of the best displays in the market.

Design and Build Quality

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

Overall, the TCL 55P8E packs in an excellent quality display panel which is worth every penny you spend on this product.

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

Same is the case with this LED TV as well. The TCL 55P8E comes with two speakers rated at 20W RMS output.

These speakers are sufficiently loud and while perfectly usable in small rooms, we’d suggest you buy an external Bluetooth speaker setup for much better quality sound output.

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

Verdict

The TCL 55P8E is one of the best smart LED TV under Rs.40,000 which delivers excellent picture quality with finer details, thanks to the 4K Ultra 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. 40,000

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.

1.Price

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.
