Buying a TV under 25,000 is a tougher task than buying a cheaper or a costlier variant. The offerings are so versatile that you may wonder whether you were being ripped off or are you getting the best deal? Depending on the brand and model you can find different products with great features and power-packed performance within the 25k range. Based on our ratings, here are the best TVs you can buy in India for less than Rs 25000 in 2018. This list of the top TVs available in India is updated every time a new laptop is launched, and the prices and pictures are updated as and when they change.
The Xiaomi Mi TV 4A is one of the best value-for-money budget smart TV available in the market. The device is packed with unbelievable specs and features a 43-inch full HD display. The audio output is decent with the 20W speakers with Digital Surround Sound Technology. The best that the Mi TV 4A has to offer is bringing a smart TV to consumers at this price point. The smart features such as mirroring, smartphone control, and Android gaming are on par with other similar smart TVs. Xiaomi is offering a one-year warranty on the Mi TV 4A.
Yes, you read it right. There is a smart TV with full HD LED display by Samsung under 25K. You can thank us later. The TV comes with a 1920 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 50 HZ which may seem a little less. However, with the clean view the display quality is enhanced and so are the colour & contrast. The mirroring technology can be quite useful for users who connect their mobile devices to the TV. Users can also choose to get only sound on their mobiles via Bluetooth. There is a one-year comprehensive warranty and additional one year for the panel.
Xiaomi forayed into the TV segment this year and launched three new sets in India. The company's most affordable option comes in the form of the Mi LED Smart TV 4A (32) which features a 32-inch HD-ready 1366 x 768 display and has been priced competitively at Rs 13,999. For the price, the TV offers good value for money and comes with support for Smart features out-of-the-box. The Smart TV runs PatchWall UI and is powered by a quad-core 64-bit processor which has been coupled with 1GB of RAM. The Mi LED Smart TV 4A (32) also features a stereo speaker setup comprising of two 10W units.
Well, this one is a dark horse in the list. Even though the company manufacturing Daiwa is over three decades old, the Daiwa TVs have not found their place vis-a-vis the competitors. With the features and specification being offered with the Daiwa (40 inch) Full HD LED Smart TV (L42FVC4U), we thought of including it in the list. So coming to the specs, you get a Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and refresh rate of 60Hz. The audio output by both speakers is 20W, which is again decent. It is powered by a quad-core processor with clock speeds of 1 GHz along with 1 GB of DDR3 RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. You'll also get a screen grab feature, web cruiser remote, task killer, etc.
One more from Vu has made it to the list. The VU (H40D321) Full HD TV is a 39 inches product with a Full HD display. The resolution of 1920 x 1080 will allow you to watch Blu-ray movies without any drop in quality. There are 2 HDMI and USB ports for better connectivity. The sound quality is decent but it could have been better. VU also provides one year onsite warranty, so that's definitely a plus.
As we discussed earlier, buying a TV under 25k in India is no mean feat. In the list, you must have seen some TVs from newer brands offering out of the world specs for the price, while the established brands are offering products with higher performance.
In the 25K range, sadly you need to choose between a Full HD TV and a smart TV. Based on your preference you can narrow down the options. In either case, rather than just checking whether it is Full HD or not, you can check the refresh rate. Higher the refresh rate, better the clarity.
The features offered by smart TV in the price range are more or less similar. It is also important to take a note of the warranty offered, especially with the newer brands. If you are buying this as your primary TV, then the warranty is significant.
