Yes, you are reading this right. We are listing best TVs under Rs. 15,000 in India. Top brands have accepted the need to come up with cheaper alternatives to fit varying requirement of various consumers. Many of us have TVs in each room in the house, and companies are more than happy to provide the products. Not just a basic television, you can get Full-HD TV for the price of a basic android smartphone. Here is a list of best television under Rs. 15,000 that you can buy in India.
This one from Philips is a full HD LED TV with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and an astonishing refresh rate of 120 Hz. The device offers incredible display quality with sharp and clear images. The sound system is powered with two 16W RMS amplifiers resulting in a decent audio output. There is a single HDMI and USB port for easy connectivity. The after sales service is slightly below par as compared to other established competitors. However, the product itself is an absolute value for money.
The Micromax 24B600HD 60 cm (24 inches) HD Ready LED TV is a decent device considering that the price is same as that of a Micromax mobile. The television is HD ready with 1366 x 768 pixels, but the display output is slightly disappointing when compared with high end TVs of the same brand. Micromax uses the SRS surround sound feature which results in a better audio quality. The company claims that the Micromax 24B600HD consumes less power both when in use and on standby. The device supports a wide range of audio formats. Micromax provides one year warranty for the product.
TCL L32D2900 is an HD ready TV with sleek design, a resolution of 1366 x 768 and standard refresh rate of 60 Hz. The frame is extremely thin making the device look nearly bezel-less. With both speakers capable of 5W output each, the audio capabilities seem slightly on the lower side. The TCL L32D2900 also features a smart volume experience that eliminates sudden fluctuation by adjusting programming volume which is a desirable feature. The warranty for the product is 1.5 years, which is the highest offered in TVs below 15k.
Well, the VU LED32K160 32 inch HD Ready LED is a surprise entry in the list. The resolution offered is 1366 x 768 with a refresh rate of 50 Hertz. Well, the refresh rate itself should have been sufficient to exclude this one from the list. However, the VU LED32K160 offers one of the best video quality in the range. It uses anAchromatic A+ Grade Panel that enhances both the black and bright colours to improve the viewing experience. The product comes with the standard connectivity options and one year warranty.
Videocon was once a prominent force in the Indian television segment, but has not been able to keep up with its competitors. There are still some loyal Videocon fans, and the Videocon IVC24F02 is a perfect product for them. The design is nothing out of the ordinary, all that you will expect from 24 inch TV is present. The audio quality is poor as compared to the display which is quite good. Considering that Videocon is an established brand, one can expect good after-sales service.
The Sansui full HD TV (SJX24FB) is the company’s most lucrative offering in lower end models. The design of the model is very poor, even comparable to a flat screen computer monitor. The device offers a Full HD display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 capable of even playing Bly-ray movies. The Sansui SJX24FB full HD TV also offers several selectable picture modes along with a wide range of supported video format.The audio output is subpar and may leave a few users dejected. The primary reason to buy the Sansui SJX24FB is its Full HD display.
Buying a television set for a price lesser than 15,000 is totally different from the purchase of a TV at standard prices. You need to keep your requirements in mind while at the same time not expect the device to deliver performance similar to a 4K Smart TV.
For buying a TV under 15,000, you need to look at primarily the display quality, sound quality, and warranty. The remaining features are nearly same in the all of the devices. All of them will offer connectivity options, remote, etc. so that cannot be the criteria for selection.
If you are buying from a relatively newer brand, then it is important to check the warranty provided and what is covered under that warranty. Additionally, after sales service can also be a cause of concern for such brands. You can try calling the customer care to check their responsiveness and attitude towards the complaint.
