After a long gap, Indian consumer electronics brand BPL has presented a new series of LED televisions starting from a price range of 11500 to 27000 rupees. My introduction with BPL TV goes back to the era of DD National Shree Krishna Serial telecast. Then, as a Kid, I was in love with Shree Krishna Leela without knowing that one day I will sit with my team to review a new series of the same brand TV.
I will take a few notes from BPL’s official website. I am really surprised after knowing the full meaning of BPL abbreviation. BPL’s full form is British Physical Laboratories. This brand had begun operation in 1968 that today expends in consumer, medical, home and lightening gadget segments.
With a sales agreement with Flipkart, BPL has launches four innovative LED HD TVs. The TV models are available only at Flipkart, so searching it in a local electronics mall will be a meaning-less work.

BPL EDP98VH1 32 inches LED TV
You might remember BPL was a popular TV brand back in 2004. The brand suffered from huge losses during 2005-2006 and its future went into dark. But now after 10 years, BPL has made a re-entry by launching a few attractive products. The recently launched BPL EDP98VH1LED TV offers a huge 32 inch display at just 16490 rupees.
The design that this TV features is certainly not the best in the world, but is manageable considering the price point. Its bezels are thick to cause annoyance in the user’s movie watching experience. The good thing is that the build materials used in this TV are of really high quality. One can easily reach the connectivity ports at the back because of unique design of its back panel. The TV is just 80 mm thick and is also not much heavy.
BPL has tried the best to attract customers by putting an HD Ready 32 inches display that comes with a resolution of 1366 X 768 pixels. However, I would have personally preferred a full HD panel as this display is really huge. Your plan to use this TV for a gaming console will suffer a setback because of its low motion refresh rate of just 60 Hz. For watching a movie this is refreshing rate is sufficient, but for a game playing you need much better than this.
Thanks to the A+ Grade panel that helps this TV to eliminate ambient light reflection and reproduce images with perfect colors.
The two 10 Watt speakers at the back are supported by an inbuilt amplifier to produce loud and high quality audio. However, the TV does not come with any special audio technology that can be a disappointment for music lovers.
This BPL TV flaunts 3 HDMI ports, which is an exception for the price you are paying. Multiple USB ports would have been preferable, but a single USB port will also expand the connectivity options of users. All other connectivity ports like RF In, HDMI, VGA, Component In, Audio Out and Audio In can also be found on the back.
The fun-to-play 4 on-board games of this LED TV helps a lot in refreshing the mind, especially when you are feeling bored. Users will never face any kind of compatibility issues while playing media from their USB devices as it supports all the modern formats.
In standby mode, the TV consumes only 1Watt of electricity, but that number jumps to a whopping 100 Watts when it goes in active mode. Strangely, BPL recommends using a stabilizer for this TV even when it supports a wide voltage input of 100-240 Volts.
BPL gives one year of free warranty on this LED TV, but that covers just the Panel and PCB.
This TV supports both table top and wall mount installation. In case of online purchase, a service executive will visit your house after the product gets delivered.
- The size of display is really attractive at this
- 3 HDMI ports.
- On-board games.
- Built-in media player.
- Loud audio.
- A+ Grade panel.
- Power consumption is on the higher side as compared to other LED TVs.
- Single USB port.
This BPL TV does not come with many extra features. The audio and video quality is also average in my opinion. However, I cannot say that buying this TV will be a bad decision as it comes at a much affordable price.
BPL EDN97VH1 32 inches LED TV
The only thing that makes an electronic product a popular choice in the market is the correlation of its features and price. BPL has used this technique in selling most of its products. Sometimes this Indian brand does forget the current trend and buyers demand. The BPL EDN97VH1 LED TV flaunts a number of attractive features, but fails to attract customers because of its high price of 17990 rupees.
We have to give some appreciation to BPL for the brilliant design. All the parts of this TV are delicately designed. The outer shell is sturdy and wears a nice premium finish. Controls and connectivity ports can be easily accessed. Its super slim design will blow your mind for sure. The curved profile of the back panel makes it much easier for the end users to clean this TV if they have mounted it on a wall.
You will have an immersive movie watching experience as it comes with a big 32 inch display. However, the graphics will not be that crispy because of the low resolution of 1366 X 768 pixels. Buyers do expect full HD display at this price. One good thing is that it flaunts a high quality A+ Display panel that comes without any pixel defect. There are few negligible drawbacks, hardly notable in the regular usages. One big hidden gold feature we count – the high quality display panel of this TV does not lose color when the light density increases in the room from multiple sources. However, for a great TV watching experience, maintain low lightening in the TV room.
This BPL TV is certainly not made for gaming purpose and if you still want to try it, then let me tell you that your experience will be really disappointing because of the low motion refresh rate.
No one will buy an 18000 rupees TV if that comes with bad audio system. BPL should have thought twice before putting just two 8Watt bad performing speakers.
I must say, this TV is loaded with a bunch of connectivity features. The Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) allows the users to stream media from supported devices to the huge display of this TV. One can even use the Bluetooth feature to play audio files, but the experience will not be that great because of bad sound system.
The TV also sports 2 HDMI and one USB port. Other notable connectivity ports on this TV are VGA, RF In, Component In, Audio In and Audio Out.
In the name of extra features, this TV comes with a few on-board games and a media player. The media player is appreciable as it supports all the modern media formats.
Considering the size of the TV, the power consumption of just 75 Watts is a good choice for a family with high electricity bill. Another interesting feature of this TV is consumption of less than 1W of power in standby mode.
The manufacturer covers all kinds of manufacturing defects related to the panel and PCB for one year.
Those will buy BPL EDN97VH1 online will get a free installation service within 48 hours of the delivery. Buyers have been given privilege to choose the installation type.
- Huge display.
- Bluetooth support
- 2 HDMI ports.
- Inbuilt media player.
- A+ Panel.
- Attractive design.
- Low quality audio.
- Only one USB port.
I do agree that this TV boasts a number of great features, but its price is still high. There are a number of alternatives in the market comes with the same specs, but with a huge price difference. If you still want to own, then wait for a 10% cash back offer.

BPL FEN92VH1 24 inches LED TV – My PICK
BPL is targeting the budget segment of TV market to gain a momentum after suffering from a long dark age. One of the most affordable TVs that this brand offers is the FEN92VH1 LED TV, which can be bought for as low as 11490 rupees right now. The good thing is that even at this price BPL has loaded this product with a number of great features.
I am not a huge fan of BPL’s design strategy. Its TVs were not attractive even in the early days. But yes, I can bet on the build quality of products. It does not look that great, but has been designed in a way that you will not face any problem in the handling. Creaking and flexing are much hard to notice, the credit of which goes to BPL for sure. One can also find extra space on the back that helps in reaching the connectivity ports.
This LED TV is not for those who like huge displays. The 24 display that it flaunts has a decent resolution of 1366 X 768 pixels. It is true that the pixel count is low, but because of the small size of display, all the graphics appear crispy. The A+ Grade Panel ensures that each and every part of the display generates correct colors.
You will not find even a single dark spot on the panel as the TV is powered by DLED backlighting system. However, this TV also suffers from low motion rate problem, which will disappoint console gamers a lot.
My recommendation would be not to install this BPL TV in a big room because there are only two 7 Watt speakers on it. The audio it generates is not much loud and many times you will feel a need of an extra set of speakers.
Low budget has not stopped BPL from putting the best connectivity features like MHL and Bluetooth on this TV. It is also equipped with two HDMI and one USB port. Other connectivity ports like RF In, VGA, Component In, Audio In and Audio Out make this TV a worthy buy.
Those want extra features will suffer from huge disappointment because this LED TV does not offer a lot on this front.
You can refresh your mind by playing any of the 4 on-board games. Moreover, all types of media can be opened on this TV as it features an inbuilt media player.
Do not worry about your electricity bill as it consumes just 45 Watts of power. If your electricity connection suffers from fluctuations, then you will be relieved to know that this TV supports wide voltage input of 100-240 Volts.
You will get one year of warranty on this product that does not cover cabinet and remote.
The installation will be provided free of cost if you have purchased this TV online.
- HD Ready.
- 2 HDMI and 1 USB port.
- MHL and Bluetooth Support
- A+ Grade Panel.
- On board Games.
- Inbuilt media player.
- Low audio volume.
At this price point, it is the best TV that you can get. The features that come on-board are really hard to find even on TVs priced above 15000 rupees.
