LG 24LF515A 60 cm (24 inches) HD Ready LED TV
If your budget is tight and you want a television from a reputable brand, then the LG 24LF515A LED TV can be a viable option. It is available in the market with a price tag of 15,499 rupees. But before you make a purchase decision be sure to read this review until the end. Budget TVs from popular brands always come with some drawbacks that every customer should be aware.
Cute Looking Outer Shell
LG has equipped this product with an outer shell that looks cute. Its edges have been given a curved design that gives a more appealing feel to the eyes. Like most of the LG televisions, this product also comes with All Round Protection Plus feature, which means that humidity, heat, and dust will not damage its internal parts.
One of the main highlights of this LED TV is the Transform stand that it comes with. It suffices the needs of users even in the case of wall mount installation. Just turn the stand upside down and install it on a wall. Now you will have a really good-looking shelf that can be used for stacking books or placing a DTH Set Top Box.
Decent Display Quality
This is an HD ready TV set comes with a 24-inch display featuring a resolution of 1366 X 768 pixels. The TV also offers wide viewing angles. At this price point, we cannot expect superb picture quality, but still the screen of this television is quite appreciable. Moreover, LG has equipped it with Triple XD processing engine, which is famous in the market for its graphic processing powers.
Moreover, this LG TV also allows the users to select from a wide range of screen modes like Bollywood Mode, Cricket Mode, etc. However, do not think of it as a decent screen to work with a gaming console. Both its response time and motion refresh rate are not up to the mark.
Low Audio Output
This LG television model generates a maximum RMS output of 10 Watts, which is below expectations. This much sound output is only adequate for a small size room. However, the audio output quality is very good. Thanks to the Dolby Digital technology, as it improves all the frequencies and gives users a nice music listening experience. Further, the five sound presents and three audio settings give users many options to play with.
Low Power Consumption
In standby mode, the power consumption of this TV never crosses 0.3 Watts. Moreover, the technologies like Smart Energy Saving and Motion Eco Sensor reduce the energy requirement quite effectively.
Decent Connectivity Options
Only one USB and one HDMI port will disappoint many customers, but it is the most you can get considering the price point. The best thing is it comes with an onboard media player capable of opening audio and video files of most modern formats. You can also find a 3.5mm audio output jack on the back of this TV that can be used to attach a pair of headphones.
- Offers a bunch of audio and video presets
- Wide viewing angles
- Capable of playing HD videos
- Onboard media player
- All Round Protection Plus
- Can resist power fluctuations of up to 400 volts
- Dolby Digital technology
- Durable body
- Comes with a stand that can also be used as a shelf
- Low volume audio
The main USP of this TV is not extra features rather its superior build quality. On the features benchmark, we cannot compare it with other televisions offered by brands like Micromax and Vu in the same price segment. Still, I would have appreciated it more if LG had added one more USB port for user’s convenience.

Sony BRAVIA KLV-24P413D
Sony has a great reputation in the TV market. This brand has achieved mastery when it comes to optical front. In the last couple of years, market forces have seriously affected its business. However, the brand is trying everything to save the ground it is losing to Indian brands.
Just a few months before, Sony launched the BRAVIA KLV-24P432D LED TV to impress the budget customers. Currently, this product is selling at a price of 15499 rupees. But there is a very little chance that the television model will attract more than a few people. The reason behind is the other indigenous brands, which have covered all the space by offering bigger TVs that come with more features. Anyway, Sony deserves a fair chance to prove itself and only time will tell if the company will succeed in its mission or not.
Great Build Quality But Bad Design
Since Sony manufactures this product, we cannot question the build quality. It is made up of premium quality materials. Its outer shell is as sturdy as it can be. Sony teases this TV with the special X-Protection Pro feature that saves it from dust, lightening, electricity surge, and humidity.
The design of this television is not that appealing. The base stand looks awkward. However, its installation on a wall is very easy.
This product lives up to the name of Sony. Although the display is a little small at 24 inches but its quality and performance are awesome. It offers wide viewing angles of 178 degrees in both vertical and horizontal directions.
The Live Color technology helps this display to generate life-like pictures. This is an HD ready device features a WXGA resolution of 1366 X 768 pixels. It also offers high contrast ratio that helps the viewers in seeing the finest details. However, because of poor motion and frame refresh rate this display is not good for playing games. Also, Sony has used Edge LED backlighting system that results in little brightness variations all across the screen.
Awesome Sound Output
The two 10-Watt speakers of this television generate powerful 20-Watt audio. Therefore, there is no need for purchasing an extra set of speakers even if you are installing this TV in a big room. It also comes equipped with Dolby Digital technology to improve the experience of the users.
Unimpressive Connectivity Options
I do not know why, but all the popular brands restrict themselves from offering good connectivity options in the budget segment. This TV features a single USB and just two HDMI ports on the back. Suppose you are to attach Chromecast to this device, then the only USB port that has been featured will get used unless there is an extra plug outlet nearby. Somehow, a television should have at least two USB port.
- Low power consumption
- OSD menu supports Indian languages
- Inbuilt FM Radio and Media Player
- Wide viewing angles
- Impressive audio production
- Sturdy build
- Single USB port
- Outer shell is not that attractive
I would recommend this television set only to those people who are a fan of the brand Sony. This is because the market is full of better and bigger TVs.
Sansui SJX24FB02CAF 24 inch Full HD – Pick
From the last few years, Sansui is struggling a lot in the TV market. The winds of competition from smaller brands have disrupted its market grip. To overcome the effects of this disruption, Sansui is doing what any other brand would have done in its shoes, which is launching new and attractive products.
In the tale of 2015, the Sansui SJX24FB02CAF LED TV was made available in the Indian market and it is currently selling at the price of 13390 rupees. On paper, this television seems to offer a bunch of attractive offers. So, let us check if Sansui can really acquire a greater share of the market with this product or not.
Sansui has done nothing fancy in this department. The television set does not look very attractive but its overall built quality is solid.
The TV is just 9.1 cm thick, which means it will look good on your home wall. Its sides come painted in the brushed metallic finish that provides a nice appeal. Also, the build materials used in the making are of good quality. At least, this TV has a better build quality than the alternatives offered by brands like Intex, Micromax, and Vu.
However, I am really disappointed with the design of the stand. The manufacturer could have done a lot better with its design.
Considering the price, the 24-inch display looks good. Moreover, it is one of the few television sets offer a full HD resolution (1920X 1080 pixels) under the price cap of 15,000 rupees. The high pixel density makes the graphics look razor sharp.
The FHD screen generates 16.7 million colors and can get bright up to 250 nits. Decent contrast ratio helps the users is separating the blacks from whites. However, the limited viewing angles will disappoint some customers for sure.
Average Audio Quality
The manufacturer teases this television with Bazoomba Sound. However, in reality, the quality of the audio that it generates is not that impressive. It comes with two 8-Watt speakers, so the maximum RMS output that it can give is limited to 16 Watts only. With this specification, Sansui will not be able to stand in the competition on the audio front.
Supports Wide Voltage Input
Even if you live in a region that suffers a lot from power fluctuations, there is no need to worry much. The circuitry of this television will not be damaged as it supports a wide voltage input range of 90 – 300 Volts. Not only this, the materials used in the making are capable of resisting even extreme weather conditions. This Sansui television has also surprised me with its low power consumption of 45 Watts.
Disappointing On the Front Of Connectivity
When a friend told me that Sansui has launched a new budget TV with competitive features, I was optimistic from it on the connectivity front. However, my assumptions were wrong. The television features a single USB port on the back. Therefore, there is no chance you can use two flash storages simultaneously on it. Also, the same is the case with HDMI department. Even the only HDMI port that it features does not support full HDMI connectivity.
- Decent build quality
- Can resist heat, humidity and power fluctuations
- Full HD display panel
- Low power consumption
- Thin outer shell
- Bad connectivity options
- Limited viewing angles
The specialty of this Sansui television is it offers a perfect balance of quality and features. If you do not need extra USB or HDMI ports, then just go for it.
