LG 42LB550A 106 cm 42 inches LED TV
LG might be performing great in the Indian TV market, but that does not mean all its products are a big hit. Like every other brand, LG also makes mistakes. The LG 42LB550A LED TV is one of the few TVs that are not performing as great as the brand expected them to. You should not buy this TV even if your budget suits its price of 37990 rupees.
If there is anything about this TV that might impress you, it will be related to the design of its outer shell. Its bezels are insanely thin and their glossy black finish feels much premium. The back panel looks really sleek, but it is not user friendly for sure. Users will struggle in using the connectivity ports which are located at a hard to reach place on the backside.
The astonishingly huge 42 inch display of this TV is capable of giving a theatre like movie watching experience. It houses an IPS panel that offers wide viewing angles and high contrast ratio. This TV is also powered by LG’s famous Triple XD Engine that generates breathtaking graphics. The Direct LED technology ensures even distribution of brightness all across the display.
However, it could have been a better product if LG had focused on the low motion rate problem of this TV.
The worst thing about this high priced TV is that its total audio output RMS is just 10 Watts. It will not produce enough loud sound to give a decent experience even in a small room.
It is not a Smart TV so do not expect to enjoy modern connectivity features like Wi-Fi and Tag On. More disappointing will be the fact that there is only a single USB port on it. But this TV does feature other connectivity ports like RF In, VGA In, Audio In, Audio Out and Composite In.
Operating the menu of the TV will not be big problem as it supports 10 Indian languages. The All Round Protection feature makes this TV safe from lightening, power fluctuation humidity, light collisions and summer heat. It also flaunts an inbuilt media player that supports most of the modern media formats.
The features like Smart Energy Saving and Motion Eco Sensor help this TV to reduce the power consumption. When not in use, it just consumes 0.3 Watts of energy, which should not be a big deal.
In the case of online purchase, the installation will be done for free. However, you will be charged if some extra accessories are needed.
- Immersive display with full HD resolution.
- Inbuilt media player.
- Smart Energy Saving.
- Attractive design.
- Low power consumption.
- Regional languages.
- Bad audio quality.
- Single USB port.
The flaws of this TV are so disappointing that a number of people will not even consider it as an option. You can easily buy a Smart TV if you are willing to spend 4 to 5 thousand rupees extra.
LG 42LB5820 106 cm 42 inches LED TV
LG is one of the few brands, which are known for offering cutting-edge technology in their products. Its 42LB5820 LED TV has earned good reputation in the market since it was launched in the year 2014. The TV comes with a number of striking features like full HD display, Smart Mobile Link and Magic Remote compatibility. At present, this TV can be purchased for a price of 46990 rupees.
The elegant design of this TV does match the luxury of the high price. Its bezels come painted in silver color because of which the whole product feels really appealing to the eyes. The materials used in both the remote and the TV body are of much high quality. The TV stand is designed in a way that matches the ergonomics of the TV unit itself, thereby giving a harmonious feel to the viewer.
This premium TV from LG boasts a 42 inch IPS panel that features a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. I would have personally preferred 4K resolution on a display this much huge, but full HD resolution is no less attractive in the case of this TV.
With the help of Triple XD Engine, this TV produces stunning images with high contrast ratio. All the colors remain undistorted even from steep angles.
No electronic product in the world is perfect and some flaws do come with this TV also. Its low motion refresh rate of just 50 Hz will stop you from attaching a gaming console.
It is equipped with two 10 W speakers which do not perform as expected. Many customers who are using this TV have told us that they were forced to install an external sound system in order to get theatre like experience.
On the front of connectivity, this LED TV can beat any other competitor in the market. There are 3 HDMI and 3 USB ports on the back, which highly expand your options. More features like Wi-Fi, Smart Share, Smart Mobile Link, NFC and Miracast take the experience of user to the next level. The ports that you will find on this TV are RF In, Audio In, Audio Out and Component In.
There is a surprise for you- this 42 inch product is also a Smart TV. The NetCast 4.5 platform brings a number of smart features to this TV. Its inbuilt browser offers flawless web surfing and supports all the modern formats. Thanks to the Time Machine feature that gives option of TV recording to the users.
Using the Magic Remote (that comes in the box), users get a whole new experience of TV control.
Wide voltage input of 100-240 Volts makes this Smart TV immune to voltage fluctuations. In standby mode, it consumes only 0.3 Watt of power.
The TV is compatible with both wall mount and table top installations. The charges of installation and demo depend on the place of purchase.
- Huge display with full HD resolution.
- Magic Remote compatible.
- Smart TV.
- Premium content.
- Smart Sound Mode.
- TV recording feature.
- App market.
- Built-in speakers do not produce great quality audio.
For the price, it is great TV. Some of the features as it offers are not even available on other Smart TVs in this price segment.
Philips 40PFL4650 100 cm 40 inches LED TV
The Philips has lately become one of the popular TV brand in the market. Its strategy is simple, create good products and make them available at a reasonable price. The Philips 40PFL4650 LED TV that comes at the price of 30,568 rupees is loaded with most of the features, which you will expect from a TV of this price segment.
The brand has tried to put some innovation on the design front. It is a perfect product for those wants premium feel without spending much. Thin bezels result in immersive movie watching experience of the end user. The TV is just 51 mm thick, which is really a surprise. However, the weight of 13.5 KG might make it a little difficult for some people to easily change the position of this TV.
Its 40 inch display is big enough to give you a theatre like feel at home. The resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels makes everything on the display crispy and pixilation free. You will not find any kind of color or brightness distortion from the steep angles. Moreover, the display panel of this TV produces true and natural colors.
Philips might be trying to lure customers by teasing the Perfect Motion Rate of 240 Hz, but the real motion refresh of this TV is not more than 60 Hz.
The TV features two 8 Watts speakers on the back, but let me tell you that they do not produce best in class audio. In fact, the volume of the audio remains much low and makes your experience worse. The good thing is you can install an external set of speakers.
Although there are two HDMI ports on this TV, but a single USB port limits the connectivity options. You will face problem in simultaneously connecting an external Hard Disk and a flash drive. However, the basic connectivity ports like RF In, Audio In, Audio Out, Composite In and VGA In are present on this TV.
The on-board media player supports a wide range of media formats like AVI, MP4, MKV and ASF. There are not a bunch of extra features on this TV, but the notable ones are Digital Noise Reduction, Fine Tuning, Picture Precise HD and Auto Store.
Power consumption of just 75 Watts seems to be reasonable for a TV of this size. It consumes only 1Watt of power in the standby mode and also supports wide voltage input.
Installation is provided free of cost when the TV is purchased from eCommerce portals like Flipkart.com.
- Full HD display
- 2 HDMI ports
- Elegant design
- Power efficient
- Low audio volume.
- Only one USB port.
The only one thing that can stop a customer from buying this TV is that lack of multiple USB ports. However, if your requirement is not at multiple media ports, then there is no better option in the market.
Philips 40PFL5059 102 cm 40.2 inches LED TV
The Philips 40PFL5059 LED TV appears to be a nicely packed product at a desirable price of 30397 rupees. It features a huge 40 inch display, full HD panel and USB playback support. As we know Philips products are already getting great appreciation from customers, it will not be a big surprise if this TV also becomes a major hit in the market. However, let me tell it does come with a few major flaws that will affect your buying decision.
This Philips TV offers the best design possible at this price. Ultra-thin bezels, glossy finish and quality build materials altogether give a premium feel. It is just 69 mm in thickness and weighs in at 8.5 KG. The bad thing about the design is that accessing the connectivity ports will become a little difficult the case of wall mount installation.
The full HD resolution equals to 1920 X 1080 pixels an ideal choice for a display in 40 inch size. Direct LED technology helps in even distribution of back-light across the display. The Pixel Precise HD Engine produces natural colors and also helps in improving the contrast ratio of adjacent pixels. Colors do not get distorted no matter from what angle your look at the display.
I am not a huge fan of Philips Perfect Motion Rate because it is just a trick to fool people by greatly increasing the original motion refresh rate. So, even if this TV comes with a Perfect Motion Rate of 240 Hz, you should not expect it to give a great gaming experience.
Two 8 Watt speakers are big a letdown for music lovers. This TV fails to give a nice audio experience to the users.
This TV does not support DVI signal processing, so the people who are buying this TV to use as a monitor should look for other options. There two HDMI ports on the back, but they will remain useless most of the time. Single USB port further worsens the user experience.
The other connectivity ports that can be found on this TV are RF In, Audio In, VGA In and Composite In.
The Digital Noise Reduction technology helps in greatly improving the picture quality. As this TV comes with an inbuilt media player, so opening media files directly from your USB storage device will not be a big problem.
Do not worry about your electricity bill because this TV consumes just 70 Watts of power in active mode and only one Watt of power in standby mode.
You can go for both table top and wall mount installation. If you want to save some money on installation, then I would recommend buying this TV online.
- 40 inch full HD display.
- Great picture quality.
- Low power consumption.
- Eye-catching design.
- Single USB port.
- Bad sound quality.
- Cannot be used as a full HD monitor.
- Low motion refresh rate.
It is clear from this discussion that this TV is not a great option for your entertainment needs. According to me, you should look for other TVs from brands like BPL and Vu if you want great features at this price.
