42 inch LED TV with Full HD Screen Onida 41FC
I have always been a fan of this credible Indian brand Onida. Its products may not be the best choice but are close to what is the best in the market. Besides, being an Indian brand itself is a credibility factor for buyers.
Thus, trusting brand Onida and going by the features of the model 42FC, this has to be one of the best full HD LED TVs below 25000 Rupees currently. Features of this TV are even though not so sophisticated yet very sound and enough. This is one recent 40 inch LED TV in market and comes packed with regular and latest features.
What I really like about this model is that the slightly bigger screen size and its quality. Actually, bigger is TV’s screen size better would be viewer’s experience. However, while deciding screen size, one must think about room size where the new TV would be installed.
Therefore, going by the room sizes in Indian homes, a LED TV with screen size anything above 30 inch and below 45 inch looks perfect. That is why I would prefer this Onida LED TV with 42-inch screen size to be in your home. It is big but not too big. It is rather perfect!
This is not a smart LED, and it lacks many convenience features as well. Despite that it is one of the best LEDs in my opinion. In fact, it should be your first preference over options from mediocre brands.
Included and Missed Crucial Key Features with Onida LED
It is very disappointing that this Onida LED TV lacks even basic convenience features. For instance, missing a headphone jack does not make sense. Apparently, a headphone jack helps in watching TV programs quietly, without disturbing family members in home.
Onida 42FC is the best choice if your requirement is limited to just a TV use. It is best suited for tuning television channels only.
Onida has programmed this full HD LED TV in such a way that it would only connect with either a DTH or a Cable network. On the name of connectivity, however, it stands strong. It consists of two USB Ports and two HDMI ports. But I have a question for Onida. What users could do with this many connectivity options when there are no features onboard to make use of them?
The display of this 42-inch LED TV comes with full HD resolution, which has an impressive refresh rate, too. Even though no advanced technology is being associated with the display, still shows programs in vivid colors. In addition, the contrast ratio of the display is also impressive.
Talking about inbuilt sound system of this LED, a total of 18 watts audio output is decent for regular news programs. But that would not that thrilling when watching entertainment programs. It is no secret though we often increase volume when watching entertainment channels.
Built and Design and other features of this Onida LED
Onida is a perfect example how a company can reinvent itself according to the market requirement. I am saying so after seeing the exciting design of this full HD LED TV. The bezel of this TV is sharp, build is slim, and frontal look, too, wins viewers heart. In fact, the design of this LED is no less than what Korean and Japanese brands render on their products.
The width of this television set is 952 millimeter, 95.2 cm exactly. Thus, before ordering it check whether you have a TV table to install such a wide LED or not. Onida offers free installation and one-year service support on this.
Conclusion: If I need to buy a big screen TV now, I would go with this Onida 42 inch LED TV. Moreover, I would say without any ambiguity that buying this Onida TV means a worthy investment for five to seven years of home entertainment.

40 inch LED TV InFocus 40EA800 with Slim Profile
Priced only 1000 Rupees less than the Onida LED recommended above, the Infocus LED TV is another best 40 inch LED TV below 25000 Rupees. Before I discuss this brilliant product, let me tell you a bit about the brand Infocus.
Before being a reputed LED TV brand in India, Infocus has been a popular smartphone brand here. Infocus makes from 1000 rupees mobile phone to premium smartphones for millions. Actually, Infocus started as a computer display brand but today operates globally with lots of contribution in the field of display technology.
The LED from this American brand is one recent model in the market. It comes with lots of strong specs. That is, even if not making it a unique product, but credible enough at its recent price.
With a DLED display panel and a high contrast ratio and impressive brightness, this 40 inch LED comes with so-so 16 Watts audio output. Infocus made this LED TV even power efficient as it consumes lesser power than most 40 inch LED TV does.
If I have to select one great feature of this LED TV, I would go with its support to most video file formats. This is when most LED TVs even the one discussed above have a limited support.
Here I am sharing only a glimpse of the great features of this 40 inch LED TV. Check out more about this at: Infocus LED Televisions in 10000 to 24000 Rupees.
BPL Vivid Full HD LED TV (BPL101D51H, 2 x HDMI, 2 x USB)
Among Indian consumers, trust and loyalty still matter the most. Recently I booked this BPL LED for a relative of my friend, whose family has been a loyal customer of BPL brand products.
The specifications and features of this 40 inch LED TV are such even you would love to be a loyal user of it. Away from the glamor and sophistication of LED TVs by Korean electronics brands, BPL, like Onida, offers a value for money LED TV with the same old trustable build quality.
Since we have already reviewed this, here I share only some of its key features. This is a full HD but not a Smart LED TV. Furthermore, if you want to find something interesting on the Internet, you would be disappointed then. It lacks internet related features as well. However, it has a number of connectivity options: not to miss two HDMI and two USB ports. Unlike the Onida TV, a headphone port is given.
This BPL LED TV would not impress if you have used a Sony LED TV previously. Yes, its display is not that uplifted. In addition, 16-Watts audio output from the two built-in speakers is only enough, not exciting whatsoever.
In spite of some expressive and some mediocre features, this BPL LED TV is in demand. Buying it from official retailer Flipkart is a challenge: most of the times I find this TV out of stock.

Micromax Full HD LED TV 40Z7550FHD with 2 x HDMI, 2 x USB
It seems though Micromax has developed the formulas for winning budget customers heart. I am saying so after Micromax repeated its success in smartphone, in the LED market as well.
I must say this Micromax 40 inch LED TV has many good features. Not a smart TV still it is not lacking on the front of convenience features. Moreover, the display and sound system of this LED is perfect and the list of features it carries is long, too. In fact, in the first instance, we got excited about this TV just because of its long list of innovative features.
But before I start reviewing this LED, let me help you with the installation and warranty details. One-year warranty and free installation – is what Micromax promises to buyers. Here I must tell you Micromax service support is not that customer-friendly.
In the sales box, Micromax provides a TV unit, remote with battery, quick installation kit, user manual, and wall mount kit.
Connectivity and Other Key features of this Micromax LED
Blessed with two HDMI and USB Ports, this 40 inch LED TV also has a VGA port. This means it could be turned into a computer monitor on demand. USB movie playback is supported but the stored files have to be in MPEG or in popular DivX format.
The display property of this Micromax LED is noteworthy. In fact, the display appears brighter and contrast ratio is quite impressive as well. Further, The LED type is DLED and its aspect ratio is 16:9, perfect for seeing full HD pictures.
The Micromax 40 inch LED TV comes with a set of two speakers with a total output of 20 Watts. Embedded speakers have the placement on the best ideal place, at the bottom apparently. Further, Auto Volume leveler add-on with the sound system of this television set helps in balancing output volume thereby enhances viewers’ experience.
Make most of the powerful speaker setup of this LED TV, as audio files stored on a USB drive are playable. The dynamic remote helps in managing audio playback options.
Love to watch TV most of the times, make sure you buy a LED TV power efficient. Beating the best LED TV models discussed above this Micromax TV consumers only 65-Watts power.
Should you buy this Micromax 40 inch LED TV?
Yes! In spite of horrible experience, I had with a Micromax service center in Chennai. A product is examined for its worth by looking into the current trend in the market. I may trust Onida as a much superior brand but this 40 LED TV from Micromax is more appropriate at its current price.
If you just want a budget LED TV, which should last long, Onida or BPL could two best LED TV brands. However, those looking to buy a television set with lots of fancy features would appreciate this low-cost LED TV from Micromax. It is not a product durable enough for five to seven years of use. So decide now, are you buying an LED TV for two to three years or five to seven years?

40 Inch Kodak Full HD Smart LED TV 40FHDXSMART
Kodak is still a popular brand in India despite failure in the photo studio business. In a new avatar of a LED TV manufacturer, it is fueling its effort to reinvent itself according to the market demand.
Exclusively available on Flipkart and being limited to online sales only, Kodak LED TV models have been getting a great response from customers. Although this 40 inch LED TV from Kodak is not a great success yet it one most relevant LED TV model on Flipkart under 25000 Rupees.
It consists of many matured features for the uniform long lasting experience. For the price of 25000 Rupees, I must say Kodak provides a worthy product. Would it last longer? Here I am not very sure. Above all, what is the response of the brand during one year of promised customer support is also an area where Kodak is not a reputed name yet.
Basic Key Features of this 40 Inch Smart LED
Even though this is a full HD LED TV, but its aspect ratio is not supportive to full HD videos frame, 16:9. The display is quite bright and has an impressive contrast ratio, too. Furthermore, the display is based on the reputed A+ Grade panel.
Being a smart LED TV means a long list of connectivity options is must. Starting with two HDMI ports and two USB ports, other connectivity options are Wi-Fi and 3G Dongle plug play. It has an RJ45 port as well. But I am astonished why Kodak has not included a Headphone Jack.
Talking about audio features of this Kodak LED TV, it comes with two speakers. Both can produce loud & clear 20-Watt audio output together. I had not expected but the fact is Kodak indeed satisfy users with the clarity of the sound system.
On the power management front as well, Kodak deserves appreciation for making a LED enough power efficient. 85-Watts power consumption is not much when LED televisions from Korean and Japanese brands requires close to 100-Watts energy.
Should you consider invest in this Kodak 40 inch LED TV?
Nothing wrong with this 25000 Rupees Smart LED TV other than its manufacturer Kodak is being a new entrant in the market. Thus, if brand reputation does not matter the most and you are ready to take a risk for a brilliant product, then this Kodak TV is one best choice.
Are smart features in this budget LED TV a pro? My answer would be YES but NO as well. Accessing online contents through expensive broadband connection does not make sense. If one has a deep pocket to bear broadband cost then why would he buy a budget smart LED TV, why not a premium Smart LED from LG, Samsung, or Sony. Therefore, the smart features of this Kodak LED TV do not hold much weight in my eyes. Still, that can be useful in some cases. Other power features besides its internet feature still making it a sound choice.

What a great success Vu has been making with this TV model as it is still one of the best LED TVs below 25000 Rupees. With more than 23000 ratings on Flipkart, this Vu LED TV has to be a safe bet against new launches from popular brands BPL, Onida, and Kodak.
Above all, Vu service support is fantastic. In fact, my friends, who had used a Vu LED for 11 months, still got a hassle-free replacement. Isn’t this surprising from an Electronics brand? Trust me no electronics brand would be so kind: provide a complete replacement in the last of month of service commitment period.
Vu has blessed this LED TV with two HDMI and One USB port. That, in fact, is more than sufficient in a regular LED TV. While Kodak chooses to miss headphone jack despite the model is a Smart LED, Vu powers this TV with lots of convenience features that includes a headphone jack, too.
