1. Sony KDL 43W800F

sony-kdl-43w800f
Overall Best Pick
  • Best in class display technology
  • True to life colours
  • Appealing modern design

Sony was and is still one of the most respectable manufacturers of home appliances out there.

The KDL-43W800F is a Full HD LED Internet TV from Sony with some great features hidden up its sleeve.

Design and Build Quality

The build quality of this device is exceptional.

The design itself makes sure that the premium feel equates with a stylish yet durable construction.

If you are a fan of wall-mounted TV’s, there are mounting brackets with plates that would fix this TV just like a photo frame that will blend with the wall seamlessly.

Display

The display on this device is a 43-inch full HD trilluminous panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The main USP and the feature that makes this product the best-LED TV in India under Rs. 50,000 is the trilluminous display.

If we compare this display which can show up to a hundred shades of a specific colour, the trilluminous display can show up to a thousand shades of the same.

This increases the colour accuracy of the TV that beats the competitor display by leaps and bounds.

The screen is very bright with accurate colours, thanks to the X-Reality Pro engine.

This panel has a colour gamut of about 96% which is impressive at this price point.

The native refresh rate of this display is 50Hz but Sony’s motion flow technology enhances it to about 200Hz.

Refresh rate is the number of times the display refreshes in a second. The higher the number of refresh rate, the better the TV will be. With an increased refresh rate, the fast-moving frames will look more smooth and enjoyable.

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. 50,000 in India.

Smart Features

Apart from the display quality, Sony touts this TV as an internet TV powered by Google-certified Android TV OS.

It has 12 pre-installed apps including Netflix, Youtube as well as photo-sharing apps like 500px.

There are dedicated Netflix and Youtube buttons on the remote which can be used for one-touch access to these services.

Connectivity

Sony hasn’t skimped on the number of ports on this device.

There are 4 HDMI ports for connecting devices like Blu-ray players, set-top boxes etc
and 3 USB ports.

There is an RJ 45 port for wired connectivity along with WiFi.

There are two 5W speakers on this device.

The sound output is quite loud and clear with balanced mid and lows that enhances the overall music listening experience.

Disadvantages

The display panel is a semi-gloss one which reflects a lot of light off the screen.

So when placed under bright lights, there might be blind spots on the screen and this may hamper the viewing experience.

Verdicts

We think the Sony KDL-43W800F is irreplaceable when it comes to the natural colours and excellent contrast ratio that the trilluminous panel inside this TV.

With the 200Hz interpolated refresh rate, action scenes and sports seem so much smooth and addictive to watch.

Go, grab this!

2. LG 50UM7290

Runner-Up Pick
  • Excellent colour accurate display
  • Simple and stylish design

It seems LG has a lot of competitive models in the premium LED TV segment.

The company has always been releasing TVs in varying price ranges and finding success a lot more of late.

The LG 50UM7290 is a 50-inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV with internet capabilities competently priced under Rs.50,000 in the Indian market.

Design and Build Quality

As with every other premium LED TVs out there, LG 50UM7290 features the same slim design form factor with minimal bezels around the display.

Since all the hardware powering the display is placed on the lower backside, there’s a slight bump in the lower portion.

The build quality is exquisite with silver colour around the bezels giving this product a luxury feel.

Display

The 50-inch full HD display supports HDR modes like HDR10 and HLG pro. This will allow you to stream HDR certified content from Netflix and other streaming sites.

The HDR content offers much more colour and contrast to the already stunning visuals.

HDR certification means you can also hook this monitor on to a PC or game console to enjoy HDR games in its full capacity.

LG is a pioneer in the IPS display technology. Being a relatively big 50-inch panel, IPS technology allows you to watch TV from any angle with no colour shift or loss of details.

The 50Hz screen causes no jitters or motion blur during the video playback and the fast-moving visuals seem to be silky smooth.

Software

You might have heard about WebOS, the answer to Android TV OS from LG. It is a slick, lightweight OS that runs fluidly and performs well even on low specced devices.

ThinQ AI is the new artificial intelligence technology that LG has been implementing across its products, be it smartphones or washing machines or even with refrigerators.

It offers voice-activated controls on LG devices for quick and easy operation without having to pound your fingers over the remote buttons.

Miscellaneous

WebOS allows you to multitask. If you can’t stop watching a live broadcast but want to check out your social media account at once, you can do that with this LED TV.

Also, this smart LED TV from LG features dual Bluetooth technology that offers an enhanced range.

You can connect your wireless headphones or earphones to this device and enjoy the show without disturbing anyone.

DTS certified speakers inside this television offer a decent playback experience but when it comes to TVs, we always recommend an external speaker setup for the complete experience.

Verdict

The LG 50UM7290 is a 50-inch large screen smart LED TV that provides you with an excellent cost to feature proposition.

A stunning IPS 4K display in itself is worth the asking price and with features such as HDR support and smart connectivity, this television is one of the best value for money products in the market at present.

3. TCL 65P8

Smart Tv with Larger Display
  • Suited for big rooms and halls
  • Excellent colour reproduction
  • Pure Android 9.0 TV OS s

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

The TCL 65P8 is a 65-inch 4K LED TV running Android TV OS priced under Rs.50,000.

Design and Build Quality

TCL followed 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

The TCL 65P8 packs in a 65-inch 4K Ultra HD display with a refresh rate of 60Hz.

This 65-inch 3840 x 2160 pixel display features TCL’s signature direct LED backlight technology that enhances the colour gamut and contrast ratio to provide you with a better picture.

Being a true colour display, the accuracy of colours that are displayed on the screen is much better than most of the competitors in the same price segment

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 65P8 packs in an excellent quality display panel which is worth every penny you spend on this product.

Audio

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 P6 comes with two speakers rated at a total of 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.

Miscellaneous

This smart TV runs on stock Android TV OS. This means that all the Google services come preloaded with the device.

You can download all your favourite apps from the integrated Play store and enjoy it on this television effortlessly.

On the connectivity front, the TCL 65P8 features 3 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports.

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 65P8 is one of the best 4K UHD LED TV priced under Rs.50,000 delivering excellent picture quality with finer vivid details.

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. 50,000

You’re clearly confused about your next TV purchase and need a piece of advice, right?

Well, we have it.

Take a deep breath and go through the article.

We will make you understand the basics and guide you through the jargon like a breeze.

Let’s look at the factors that you need to consider while buying a LED TV under Rs.50,000.

1. Price

Half a lakh is definitely not a bad choice.

Spending such an amount means you are serious and interested in spending some quality time in front of the TV.

For Rs.50,000, you’re going to get some best in class features and a stunning display to look at.

2. Display

First things first. No OLED panels.

Yes, you’ve heard it right.

OLED panels are so damn expensive to manufacture.

OEM’s still don’t find it profitable to include one in this price bracket.

So all you have to cherish is a good LED panel with edge lighting. And a pretty good one at it.

3. Resolution & Screen size

This is a tricky part. Resolution and screen size is interdependent.

You should only choose a 4K screen if you are aiming for a larger display.

Otherwise, a full HD display would suffice.

However, choosing a display size of minimum 43-inch is better, if you ask us.

There are TVs available up to a display size of 55-inch with 4K resolution.

Models like 43-inch LG 43UJ632T 4K TV priced at Rs.52,750 is a good choice having a perfect resolution with suitable screen real estate.

4. Contrast ratio

More the contrast ratio, better will be the overall brightness of the display.

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.50,000 comes with a respectable contrast ratio upwards of 100000:1 stretching even up to a staggering 600000:1.

5. Refresh rate

Many people who buy a LED TV for a budget of Rs.40,000 and above double it up as a secondary gaming monitor.

Leaving the resolution/display size aside, the most important factor for a gaming monitor is its refresh rate.

Serious gamers hate to see dropped frames in between.

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.50,000 comes with the standard 60Hz refresh rate.

Models like Sony KLV 43W772E and Samsung 43K5300 comes with interpolated refresh rates of 200Hz and 100Hz respectively.

6. High Dynamic Range

HDR support is important if you are the one who loves to watch native 4K content on the TV in its full glory.

Many games are also launching with the HDR capability which will increase the overall immersive experience.

Models like the Mi Smart TV 4 and LG 43UJ632T priced at Rs.44,999 and Rs. 52,750 respectively comes with HDR support.

7. Connectivity

At a budget of just under Rs.50,000 Smart TV is the way to go.

No matter if you’re interested in it or not, just go for it.

No one knows what future has in store for you.

Most of the LED TVs come with a minimum of 2 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports.

The Vu LEDN50K310X3D, a 50-inch 4K LED TV priced at Rs. 44,999 comes with 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports.

Wi-FI connectivity is a standard feature in all models.

Bluetooth is one added functionality that you must decide whether to have or not.

8. Speakers

You’re already spending close to Rs.50,000 because you absolutely enjoy having stunning visuals.

To have a completely immersive viewing experience, we would recommend you to invest in a decent home theater or speakers.

The speakers that come with these TVs are not up to the mark.
