what do you think is 55p6us a better buy than ifFalcon
I was planning to buy Iffalcon tv but could not grab it during the Flash sale.
So i bought this 55P6US from TCL authorized dealer in Chennai for 44k.

TV supports 10bit HDR, not sure about the Colour Gamut and other features as this TV is not listed there in the TCL india site itself.

Pros:
Slim looks, Netflix and Youtube in-built apps, Both supports 10bit HDR, 3 years warranty

I have watched lot of movies in Netflix,youtube and also from USB drive. it runs 90% of the file formats fine. I also played PS4 and it looked good enough.

Cons:
no DTS support, pixelation in highly compressed files(dance scenes especially)

Overall its an excellent value for money TV.

Try LG (55UJ632T). It's a 55 inch & selling at 75K on Flipkart. You can check it on Flipkart & they have small video also showing the features.
I negotiated a little better price at well known ELECTRONIC's STORE here in Mumbai.

TV features & the screen mouse remote are things to consider over any SONY & SAMSUNG. They don't even come close in comfort.
Do note that I have SONY KLV49 also with me, but I will barter it any day with LG now.

Friends, I am planning to buy a 55" 4k TV. I see value for money in Vu TVs and have zeroed in on the model 55SU134_V1. Should be available for 60k. A similar model with Sony or Samsung would be north of 100k, I believe.
Does anyone have a first hand experience with this model?

Yes indeed. I have used two VU TVs. A 47 inch one for two years without any issues and a 60 inch one that I have been using for the past 3 years. The picture quality is very good and I have tested it against other brands quite often.
You should go for the 65 inch 4k model for around 60 to 70k as that seems like better value. Paytm is currently selling the 65 inch 4k for 80k with a 10k cashback. Also check out Toshiba 55 inch 1080p available for around 50k.

Thanks for your valuable input. In view of the limited distance for viewing and the panelling work having been already done, I have a limitation to go for a 55" one. Will certainly look into the Toshiba option only.

Ok. Paytm has the Vu 55 4k for approx 41k after cashback!
You can also check Mi 55 inch TV. I have seen it a lot and it looks great. Only thing is the viewing angles are smaller. On my Vu TV, I can see it from anywhere clearly but for Mi TV if you are at an extreme angle, it is a little washed out. However we generally sit in front of the TV anyway.

Would recommend to go for the below model as it has better PQ and is better set. Have a friend who is using the same.
VU 140 cm (55 inch) LTDN55XT780XWAU3D 4K (Ultra HD) Smart LED TV
Paytm has a good deal running on the same and Flipkart will again give discounts on the same once their sale starts.

Default Re: The TV Thread - LCD, LED etc.

Planning to buy an LED TV (first time buyer) and needed some help. After looking at some options understood that we have 3 options. Basic TV or Non Smart TV, Smart TV and Android TV. We were initially leaning towards a non smart TV with the option of adding a fire stick to make it smart. However when we went to a few showrooms and saw the smart and non smart side by side, family felt that smart TV was offering better picture quality and sound. We looked at Sony so far since got feedback from friends that it is better than others.

Currently looking at https://www.sony.co.in/electronics/t...s/w662f-series 43 inch model.

Need help on following:
1) Any feedback / inputs on this model?
2) Have ruled out Android TVs since the Android OS could get out-dated over a period of time (again based on feedback from colleagues). Do we have similar problems in Smart TV also?
3) Anything to check for when it comes to buying an LED?

This one does not have an HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel). Does that mean that it cannot be connected to a home theater system?

Had also looked at 772 series but was told that it does not allow smart phone mirroring and is 2017 model so kinda ruled it out.

Regards,
S

That doesn't sound logical at all. All other things being the same, the 'smartness' of the TV will not change the picture quality & sound.

Sony is good but it's very expensive to repair when the time comes.

Yes, a similar issue would be there in Smart TV also.

Since this is the first LED tv you are purchasing, please confirm volume output of the TV speakers.
The way the showrooms set up their display TVs gives you a false sense of how the volume will be in real world.
It will sound much different at your home than it does in the showroom.

This one does not have an HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel)
Most older LED tv did not have HDMI ARC but they should definitely have Optical Audio output jack wherein you connect the optical cable to your home theatre.

Whatever you buy, go in for the maximum extended warranty that is allowed.
As per my experience, Sony gives 1yr free + 2yrs purchased extended warranty.
Samsung gives 1yr free + 3yrs purchased extended warranty.

This is news to me! From all the previous comments I've been under the impression that Sony is the cheapest to maintain as their service center does component level repair (replacing only IC, etc.,) where others simply replace the motherboard or whatever it's called.

Can any Sony user confirm this?

Thanks.

Yes this has been my experience. Changed hdmi port ics on my tv while the board was replaced on my LG. Cost of Sony service was about 1.2k and LG was 7k. The same Sony person then fixed my uncles TV and my friends TV as well.

I had a similar issues with my TV. Did you find out what was the reason behind the ICs getting short? Also in case of LG, was the whole board replaced or just the HDMI ICs? In my TVs case the main processor also got short with the HDMI ICs, hence the whole board was replaced. From what I understand on old LED or LCD TVs there uses to be different parts to the motherboard and it was possible to change the damaged part of the system, but now everything is incorporated on a single board, which leads to shorting of one component after another in case of a serious malfunction and in most cases due to severe damage the whole boards needs to be replaced which is expensive.
