5. TCL L39D2900

Best Value For Money Pick
Best Full HD TV
  • Elegant yet subtle design
  • Larger display with great visuals
  • Best Full HD TV Under Rs.20,000
TCL is a Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer that started off with selling data storage products across the world.

The company later diversified its product lineup and became a major player in the LED TV market.

The TCL L39D2900 is a 39-inch full HD LED television that comes at a fraction of price that its competitors offer for their similarly specced products.

Build quality and design – A+!

TCL follows a minimalistic design approach on this product. Nothing seems out of place and too much eye catchy.

The bezels, though not absolutely minimal doesn’t seem like too much mainly because of the larger size display compensating it.

The entire construction is of plastic which doesn’t feel premium but does just right for its price.

Feature packed display..

As more and more manufacturers started shipping full HD televisions for sub Rs.20,000 prices, the demand has skyrocketed.

However having a mediocre full HD panel instead of an excellent 720p is of no use.

TCL has done the right thing by choosing a high quality full HD display that outperforms even some of the established brands in the market in terms of its visual quality.

This 39-inch 1920X1080 pixel display features TCL’s signature LED backlight technology that enhances the color gamut and contrast ratio to provide you a better picture.

With the Dynamic Noise Reduction (DNR) technology built-in, this LED TV reduces the signal interference with other electronic equipments in the vicinity and delivers detailed images and videos.

Overall, the TCL L39D2900 packs in a respectable full HD panel that is worth every penny you spend on this product.

Sound – not neglected!!!

Budget LED TVs usually neglect the sound department altogether. This may be due to the fear of overshooting the expected marketing price.

With the TCL L39D2900, the two channel speakers on this television offers a surround sound experience that will make your viewing experience a bit immersive but for a full blown experience, we suggest you invest on a good home theatre/Bluetooth speaker.

Nifty li’l features..

TCL L39D2900 comes with an auto volume leveller feature. This will automatically adjust sudden volume fluctuations without blowing your ears off violently.

With the USB ports supporting a wide variety of multimedia formats, you can view movies and photos of different formats without converting.

Yay or Nay?

The TCL L39D2900 is definitely one of the best LED TV under Rs.18,000 that deliver excellent picture quality with finer details, sported with a full HD panel.

The only gripe we find with this product is the lack of a wider service center network which we think might hinder the prospective buyers from making a decision.

6. Sanyo XT-32S7000H

Honourable Mention
Best TV Under Rs.13,000
  • Best low budget LED TV
  • Doubles up as a PC monitor
  • Bass rich box speakers
Sanyo is a Japanese consumer electronics manufacturer that had ties with the Indian company BPL for making CRT TVs in the market.

The Sanyo XT-32S7000H is an entry-level LED TV that aims those customers who are making a jump from the traditional CRT televisions.

Simple yet elegant design..

With the Sanyo XT-32S7000H, what you get is a standard LED TV with nothing much to brag about the design aspects.

Plastic construction feels a bit cheap but the price justifies this cost cutting measure.

The two plastic stands comes with the box, lets you place this television firmly on a table top. If you wish to mount it on the wall, the mounting brackets lets you do so as well.

All the ports are placed on the sides of this LED TV. This makes the accessibility to these easier even when mounted on to a tight space.

Display – a decent 720p panel

The 32-inch panel with an effective resolution of 1366x768 isn’t as detailed as a full HD display but fairs close enough.

With a refresh rate of 60Hz, which is now the de–facto minimum standard among the television industry offers smooth visuals without much stress to your eyes.

The colours are decent and the brightness levels are not too bad either. We’ve seen much worse pictures at this price range.

And more..

The box speakers on this television offers a surprisingly rich bass when placed in small sized rooms.

If you want some privacy while watching your favorite shows/movies, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack to connect your earphones and headphones.

The PC port on the side lets you hook this display on to a computer and use it as a desktop monitor for enhanced productivity.

Hit or miss??

If your budget is too low, let’s say below Rs.13,000 and you would like to start fresh as you’re switching from a CRT TV, the Sanyo XT-32S7000H is the first choice you should consider for your purchase.

Buying Guide: LED TV Under Rs. 20,000

Best LED TV Under 20000
To be honest, a budget of Rs.20,000 isn’t going to give you a lot of features when it comes to LED televisions.

However, we’d like to point out certain aspects that you can take into consideration while purchasing one.

Budget is like a shrinking blue circle (PUBG fans would get it).

For others, a limited budget gives a lot less room to negotiate.

Finding a sweet spot that combines features with price is a very daunting task.
Let’s see how we could tackle this situation.

1. Price

We have already set a price target in our mind.Great.

Well begun is half done.

Next to consider is what does the market offer me for Rs.20,000?

Or better what should I expect to find on an LED TV under a budget of Rs.20,000?

2. Display

This choice is absolutely simple.

Under a budget of Rs.20,000 you can only expect an LED display. Don’t even think of an OLED panel at this price range.

The major negotiating feature in this category is the resolution of the display rather than the display itself.

3. Resolution

Looking for a full HD television?

Sure, you will find a handful under this price.

For eg. brands like Vu and Kodak offers full HD televisions at very aggressive price tags.

4. Screen

Most of the LED TVs priced under Rs.20,000 comes with 32-inch displays. There are a few models which provides a 40-inch panels.

If your room is small, a 32-inch panel is sufficient enough to provide a good viewing experience.

5. Contrast ratio

The contrast ratio is one of the important aspects to take care of.

As a thumb rule, more the contrast ratio, better the display on the television.

Under Rs.20,000 most of the TVs do provide contrast ratios up to 100000:1.
For eg: Samsung 32J4003 priced at Rs.17,499 has a 32-inch display with a contrast ratio of 100000:1.

6. Refresh rate

Refresh rate reduces motion blur on the screen.

This will be more evident in the case of fast-moving scenes.More the refresh rate, lesser will be the strain on your eyes.

The Sony KLV-29P423D LED television priced at Rs.19,499 has a native refresh rate of 60Hz.

The TV comes with an interpolated refresh rate of 100Hz which can be turned off in the settings.

7. Connectivity

Connectivity does improve the overall usability of the television.

More the connectivity options, more devices can be hooked up to the television.

Almost all the LED TVs under Rs.20,000 comes with a minimum of 2 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports.

As an exception, the 32-inch Mi Smart TV priced at Rs.13,999 comes with 3 HDMI ports.

8. Speakers

Audio is one of the most neglected aspects while buying a television.

You shouldn’t expect any subwoofers coming with TVs priced under Rs.20,000.

The sound quality, no matter how much watts they advertise is going to suck.

We recommend you to invest in a separate sound bar/home theater/Bluetooth speaker for a better audio experience.
